Meet the Pixelles Game Incubator III Participants!

pgi3-all

First of all, we want to say that everyone who applied is an amazing lady. With over 100 applicants it was an extremely difficult task to only ten women. We’d like to say that just because you weren’t selected doesn’t mean you aren’t a talented, wonderful, beautiful and intelligent person. Because YOU ARE! We tried to pick a variation of participants with diverse backgrounds, skills, views, and experiences.

Everyone who applied is definitely invited to sign up for the Follow Along! The Follow Along lets you make your first 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 even give feedback.

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

In just six weeks, these ten ladies will have designed, created the art, and coded their very first video game!
