Casual_Games -- IGDA Casual Games SIG Mailing List


About Casual_Games
English (USA)

The purpose of the Casual_Games mailing list is to facilitate communication among casual game developers. This list is the place to share ideas and
discuss all aspects of casual game development with your peers.

Before you post, it might be a good idea to look at the Casual_Games List FAQ which contains answers to a lot of frequently asked questions. You can also search the archives to see if it has been discussed before.

If your messages are being rejected when you try to post the most likely reason is that you are sending e-mail from a different address than what you are subscribed with. To prevent abuse, only subscribers may post to the list.

While nearly all topics are open for discussion there are a few things that
we specifically discourage:

  • Do not post derogatory remarks about any individual or company. Criticism is a valid method of communication, but personal attacks or unsubstantiated claims will not be tolerated.
  • Do not use this list to promote your latest game or your services. Games and services may be mentioned as a means to drive discussion on particular points, but this list is not to be used as an medium for advertising.
  • Do not post job postings to this list. We realize that many companies are hiring, and many people here may be looking. We have
    created a separate mailing list to serve exactly that need. If you are looking for a job, or have a position you would like to post, please do so through the OnlineGameJobs mailing list or via

Finally, just a reminder on list etiquette. If you are subscribed via digest please remember to adjust the subject line and trim out all but the relevant post when responding back to the list.
