Since Tom De Roeck has taken over management, the IGDA Austria has become a national organisation in order to strengthen the game developer community into a single organism. With this new structure, the game development communities in partner cities are now working closely together. The main aim of the organisation is to facilitate networking through various events and workshops to help developers reach their goals.
