A new women-led games event is being lined up for International Women’s Day.
It’s the brainchild of Charmaine Duff and Jenny Windom, with the aim of sharing games by women developers on the dedicated website Women-Led Games and link to their platform of choice so that they can gain views and wishlists.
Developers and studios can sign up to have their games featured here: https://forms.gle/siSpEsRcRZ22ZmdL6
Streamers and influencers are being encouraged to take part too.
Streamers can fill out the form here to play some demos of the games: https://forms.gle/hCBPKp8fFD8eFGyB6
Influencers can sign up here to agree to cover the games on their social channel of choice: https://forms.gle/wWmNWtBTvqMobWAx9
If anyone else would like to participate in something like an interview about their experience as a woman in the industry (to be posted on the event’s website), they can sign up here: https://forms.gle/CSsbggxw9Eai3zU96
