Welcome to the GAME BAKERY

At the Game Bakery, game developers and other creative pioneers work just like a baker bakes his bread: expertly, patiently and passionately. With synergy and an exchange of knowledge, we achieve better results.


Game Bakery is a cooperative. In our case, this means an association of game related companies. Every member of the association is a part-owner of the cooperative.

Game Bakery Meetups is a series of networking events for game developers. Every event is specifically created for one alternating discipline. However, everyone who is interested is welcome to join!

The events are kicked off by a short talk from an expert in the discipline in question; Over the past few years we have attracted speakers from Grendel Games from Grendel Games, Guerrilla Games and Abbey Games.

Sketch Gatherings

The Groningen Sketch Gathering was founded to assemble illustrators and concept artists of any level.
During every fun drawing session, you improve your drawing skills and meet new people from the creative industry.
