The Game Design team is an inclusive effort to bring women and allies together in the pursuit of game design, including associated skills and technologies. The Game Design team supports the needs of students in the game design program at IU but also serves the broader IU community of students interested in game-like media, as well as those interested in playing games. The team provides opportunities for instructional tutorials, professional development, networking, and socializing. These events bring together students from a range of backgrounds, and ultimately foster a community culture within IU’s game program and among students interested in games, more broadly.
