Black History Month Game Jam

AwesomeNYC is happy to announce that our first grant of 2023 has been awarded to the Black History Month Game Jam, hosted by Black Web Fest.

This February, Black Web Fest will be hosting a game jam to honor Black icons. It will be a free, weekend-long event for underrepresented creators to come together and learn how to develop video games with the longer term goal of increasing diversity in the gaming industry, both as creators and in representation of Black characters in games.

This event provides early-career and aspiring game developers with an opportunity to build a playable game, learn from industry experts and connect with their community. Black Web Fest will provide free food throughout the event and will be giving away prizes.

Creators of all skill levels are welcome to join!
