About La Guilde
Both Montreal and Quebec are internationally recognised as capitals of the video game development industry. In the last two decades, this industry generated important cultural and economic wealth. The emergence of small and medium studios is the witness of a growing and healthful industry. La Guilde’s mandate is to foster cooperation between local independent businesses and to support them by negotiating group service offerings, by supporting development and by offering mentorship. Our mission is clear: encourage our members’ success and to make Quebec the world leader of independent video game development.
