LA Game Space Kickstarter Imagines Communal Space for Indie Developers

November 8, 2012 -

A Kickstarter for a space in Los Angeles where independent developers can get together is being pitched today as the "LA Game Space." The idea of the project - should it get the $250,000 in funding organizers are asking for - is to transform an old warehouse in the Arts District of Los Angeles and turn it into a hot spot for game design and independent titles. They plan on hosting workshops, exhibitions, research labs, public events with guest speakers, and space where indie game makers can set up shop. Think of it as a sort of indie game commune, if you will.

The people behind this idea include Daniel Rehn and Attract Mode's Adam Robezzoli, along with an advisory board that includes Giant Robot's Eric Nakamuram, Venus Patrol's Brandon Boyer and TIGSource's Derek Yu.

As of this writing, the project has raised $8,671 of its $250,000 goal from 178 backers with 29 more days left to go. You can find out more here or watch the pitch video to your left.

Are there really that many independent developers living in the LA area to make this a good idea?
