Study Hall

> Every Sunday @ the Broadway Roasting Co.

Come make games with us at the Broadway Roasting Co! We meet every Sunday in the back to co-work on whatever game projects we currently have. It's a great time to make some progress on your game in a friendly environment with other devs.

About Us

Flyover Indies is a collective of indie game developers based in Kansas City. We champion one another through our individual game development journeys and celebrate new voices in the KC game dev scene. Flyover Indies is medium agnostic. We support makers of all games: board, card, video, or whatever!

Originally founded in 2014 under the name Crossroads Game Lab, in 2017 we adopted our current name, Flyover Indies.
