Hi all. This is the general information for you all. The Chaos Engine is a non-profit site run by a small group of volunteers. We are all video game industry professionals and of course, are passionate about games. The site is primarily centered around our forums. The direction and content of the site is driven by the needs and suggestions presented by our private forums members. The site was started in 2003 to answer the need of gaming industry professionals for a forum and meeting place for news and conversation about the industry. There are many public forums on the Internet, but unfortunately most professionals become tired of the public attention they draw. The private forums on The Chaos Engine require that members authenticate their status in the industry before joining. We do however have public forums and we welcome everyone with an interest in games to join and participate. We have a large membership of professionals, many of whom who read and participate in the public forums.
