You won't be assigned to games or roles. Join (or lead) games you want to make. The club works on multiple games at a time. Follow your interests. Try new skills. Get practice.
We are all here to help one another create and improve. We do not approach making games as a competition. Everything is better and easier with a supportive peer group.
Our approach fits in your busy life. Club games come together over months, with most members fitting in a few hours each week. Everyone's schedule is different.
Everything you need from starting out to leading teams. Membership includes months of training materials, our private forum, and mentorship from professionals.

Anyone can join Gamkedo Club directly, with no application process. However, our one-on-one help and mentored group practice is made possible by membership dues. Although our rates are comparable to a gym class or training with a dojo we recognize this is still outside the budget for many people who may otherwise be a great fit to develop as part of our group.
That's where Gamkedo's Patreon comes in. Patreon is a monthly crowd-funding platform, so rather than a one-time goal like KickStarter it's a recurring arrangement. Through the generosity of anonymous sponsors our group is able to accept a limited number of members at no direct cost, dues covered fully at a reduced rate through Patreon supporters.
If you would need sponsorship to participate in Gamkedo Club you can fill out our short application. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept all applicants, however it's free to apply and does not take long.
