Picture 2
The games from the first round of Pixelles are available! With the help of Feminists in Games, thirteen women became first-time game makers and created their very own games! We encourage you to play their awesome games and get in contact with them!

If you’re interested in creating your own game-making program or in our experiences, Tanya Short has written an excellent postmortem about this round of Pixelles. Because of the overwhelming success and interest Pixelles has received, we’ll be planning at least a second round of the program. The best way to be notified is to follow us on Twitter or send us an e-mail at

Singing Sands – Lauren Cruveiller
Singing Sands is an experimental game where the objective is more creative than competitive. You are a denzien of the beach, tasked with creating a sound inside of a shell to outsing the sound of the ocean. Using beach debris, you must do what you can to perform before the tide washes it all away.

– Alex Ruaux
The aim of the game is to build molecules of common, everyday stuff, like water, caffeine and sand. Learn the rules as you go and beat the clock to build these molecules before you run out of time! Everything in the world is made from tiny entities called molecules and these are made of even smaller things called atoms. Each atom has different properties, such as the number of other atoms it can bond. Use the atoms to build a given molecule in as little time as possible.

Sydney’s Epic Adventure – Sydney Warshaw
Sydney’s Epic Adventure is a game about my experience playing games. The aesthetic is reminiscent of the computer games I played in the 90’s and early 2000’s such as Hello Kitty World, American Girl Dress Designer and Neopets. Stemming from my love of paper dolls, character creation has always been my favorite part of games. I wanted to make a game focused on that. However, the fact that the character is never permitted to play the “real” game is designed as a commentary on the kinds of games marketed towards women vs. men, and on the idea of male and female “spaces” that are created in games.
Coming Soon
– Nicole Aouad
Pumpkin is a 3D first person action- adventure game. A witch stole your soul, cursed you into this strange pumpkin-headed form and forced you into servitude. After many grueling years, you found a clue to where your soul is hidden. The witch’s grimoire hinted at a forest, during summer’s end, when the veil between the worlds is thinnest. And so when the time is right, you set out for the forest and walk toward the setting sun where all souls go.

Diver Quest
– Jessica Marcotte
Diver Quest is about cold water Canadian diving where the point of the game is to be a safe and helpful diver. Players pick up objects lost – other divers and explore dive locations to increase their score while paying attention to safety parameters such as remaining air and how far they are from their exit point. The diving locations in the game are all existing sites. The creator has plans to expand the game to include more of her favourite dive sites. One of the goals of the project was to impart a message of safety while transmitting a love for diving.
