Who We Are

The community for Hong Kong's Gaming Industry

Welcome to Game Dev Happy Hour! We are a community of game developers here to foster and encourage game development in Hong Kong.

From students to professionals, indie to AAA, or everything else in between, we welcome all with an active interest in game development.

Monthly Events

Monthly Networking Meetups

Talk shop with fellow local developers and learn something along the way with a short presentation from a member of the community. Always on the first Thursday of every month!

Whether you’re based in Hong Kong, simply visiting, or anything in between, feel free to come by one of our monthly meetups.

Our Mission

Monthly Plus Events

Monthly+ Events act as specialised events at public and private venues where we focus on specific topics. These events range from university and school visits where presenters share their insight to emerging talent, to Demo Days and Game Jams.

Want to host a Monthly+ Event? Reach out to us!


Yes, you may! Simply contact us at info@gamedevhappyhour.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Sorry, but can not officialy endorse recruiters. However, we actively host free to attend events with topics on career growth and encourage our members to network between themselves.

Yes, you’re welcome to attend, though we encourage people with an active interest or involvement in the industry! Do keep in mind though that we are a community of game developers, so conversations and presentations will be skewed as such.
