|Overview:||The developer community in Poland has undergone a complete transformation over the past several years. It started with a couple of people meeting up randomly two times a year and has evolved into a vibrant, supportive, inclusive and active community. Dozens of individuals and studios from all across the country are joining in its activities, traveling, showcasing their games and helping each other out if necessary. Poland has a growing number of indie studios and increasing support from big companies, the government, and Indie Games Polska, an organisation founded specifically to help indie developers.
