Meet the Pixelles Game Incubator 2 Participants!

First, we want to say that all of you are amazing in each your own way. You definitely made our participant selection process very difficult! Sadly, we could only choose 10 out of 47 applications. BUT just because you weren’t selected doesn’t mean you still can’t make a game. It also doesn’t mean you aren’t a talented, wonderful, beautiful and intelligent person. We tried to pick a variation of participants with different goals, skills, views, personalities, and experiences.

So sign up for the Follow Along! The program lets you do the workshop from home, on your own schedule. We’ll still be there to give you support, ask about your game’s progress, and even give feedback. As of right now, we’re setting up a forum so you can help and support each other out.

Without further ado, meet our participants in this year’s Pixelles Game Incubator:

Jana Sloan van Geest
There was nothing Jana liked better than hunting and roaming the woods with her childhood friend Tamlen, until the day they discovered a strange mirror in a cave. Jana awoke from the bizarre fever wrought by the mirror to find a stranger named Duncan by her side, who told her that the only way to escape its taint was to join the brotherhood of the Grey Wardens.

Genvieve Danforth
Genevieve Danforth
After many years of trying to find my career self (silkscreen biz, film set photographer, teaching science to kids) I have decided that I should just accept my love of learning new things because it takes me places I never expect. At the moment I work mostly with game production students and they have taught me a lot about appreciating games. And so here I am.

A Big Thank You to:

Without their support this workshop would not be possible!
