Firstly, we want to thank everyone for sending in your applications. You are all amazing women with talents of your own right, and with so many applicants it’s an extremely difficult task. We have tried to pick a group of participants that is varied and balanced, with many different talents, values, experiences, and backgrounds.
Thank you all so much for sharing your wonderful stories with us and we hope to meet you in the Follow-Along ! The Follow Along lets you make your game with the workshop from home, on your own schedule. It’s open to everyone of all ages, experiences, and gender. We’ll even be providing you with a personal mentor to support, ask about your game’s progress, and give feedback. The Follow-Along also offers weekly meetups during the same period as the incubator where participants will receive support from our amazing mentors and alumnae. By making a game in our Follow-Along program, you will also be invited to participate in our showcase at the end of February 2019.
Without further ado, meet our participants in this year’s Pixelles Game Incubator VII.
In just six weeks, these twelve ladies will have designed, created the art, and coded their very first video game!
♥ Our Gracious Hosts!
We would like to thank Unity Technologies Montréal for agreeing to host our Wednesday Incubator sessions and GamePlay Space for agreeing to host our Saturday Follow-Along sessions! Without their help, this program wouldn’t be as amazing! We’re thrilled to count them as allies who believe in the importance of diversity and furthering the role of women in video game development!
