New and marginalized talent can change this industry if given the proper support. We want to provide this through our outreach programs.
From opaque industry practices to a lack of entry-level roles, we understand the overwhelming challenges that come with finding a space in games. We firmly believe that open communication, compassion, and the fostering of new talent are vital to transforming the games space into a kinder, more collaborative industry. The industry is far from where it needs to be, but we believe it can get there with shared resources, diverse talent, and transparent industry dialogue.
Here is how we can support you:
- Talk To Us
- Portfolio Review
- Workshops and Q&A’s
- Dedicated Mentorship Projects

Workshops and Q&A’s
We regularly run free workshops and Q&As over Zoom to help bring shared experience from established folks in the industry to those just starting out. Topics range from specific software tutorials to casual conversations about roles in the industry. Follow us on Twitter to receive updates on upcoming events and click below to see past workshops and tutorials!
Dedicated Mentorship Projects
We occasionally set up entire projects with the purpose of letting mentors and mentees build something together as they learn and share knowledge. We’re not running one of these at the moment but can let you know when it happens!
