Seattle Indies was created in 2011 by two people in the Puget Sound area. Being at first a group chat, it quickly turned into an association as more game developers joined the project. Their idea to provide a place and group for indie game developers caught on and grew. In 2014, a merger with a game co-op made Seattle Indies even bigger and more resourceful to host events. Two years ago, the association finally registered as an official non-profit organization. Seattle Indies now gathers 14 people, board members and volunteers, to liven up a community of approximately 3,000 fellow members. Their community can interact with them through Facebook, Twitter and dedicated email addresses. This equates to diverse communications channels and requires permanent management.
