This manifesto sets out the fundamentals of Full Indie UK: A group of UK-based indie game developers working together for the benefit of the group and thus its members.
Note that members don’t have to be British, they just have to be living in the UK at the time of joining.
The Pep Talk

We need Helpers!
Full Indie UK was founded by Jake Birkett (@GreyAlien) and there is a small team of helpers who assist with things like the website, organising events, dealing with press etc. but we are always on the lookout for new team members who can bring some skills and devote a small amount of time to the group.
If you would like to help in any way, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
This is not a legal document but needs the same respect as one.
If you repeat anything confidential, jeopardise anyone’s business, do anything that brings the group into disrepute, disrespect/harass any other group members, or act uncool in any other way then you will be ejected from the group.
Leadership decisions can be appealed if someone seconds the motion. A successful appeal will result in a vote to reverse the decision. Breaking the trust of the group by sharing confidential information/communications is an offense not subject to appeal, as may be some other offenses depending on their severity.
If you cease to be indie and/or your business/life changes so that you feel the group is not a good fit any more, please let us know so that we can remove you from the group. Thanks.
We also have an Anti-Harassment Policy. Please have a read.
By reading this and joining Full Indie UK you agree to enter into its spirit and respect and support everyone as set out above.
Note: Big thanks to Will Luton for founding Best of British which morphed into Full Indie UK.
Go back to the top and read it properly, it’s important. Thanks!
