A chapter of an international game developer’s group has been formed in Baton Rouge to help grow the state’s digital media industry.

Three state groups worked together to create a local chapter of the International Game Developer’s Association, according to a press release Monday from the Baton Rouge Area Digital Industries Consortium.

According to the release, the group will help provide professional development and advocacy for people in the gaming industry and gaming community.
 
"Community support is a must-have element for workforce development in Louisiana,” said Jeff Pellegrin, Executive Director of the Louisiana Digital Gaming Initiative.  “IGDA provides that support for digital media developers to come together and build the industry within Louisiana.”

There are currently two digital media studios in Baton Rouge, Nerjyzed Entertainment and Yatec Games, as well as Electronic Arts’ North American Testing Center on the South Campus at LSU.
