The Game Dev Co-op has always been driven by community efforts, but we haven't always let the community know how they can get involved in an official capacity. We'd like to change that. Below you will find a list of possible ways that you dedicate yourself to taking on some of the tasks that the board either hasn't had time to do, or has taken full responsibility for up until now. This list is not exhaustive. If you can think of something you would like to do that falls outside of these things, but falls into the general category of helping support the Game Development community feel free to write it in as an "other" item.
