Announcing the 2016 Game Devs of Color Expo: Sat, Jan 16, 2016 at 11:00 AM

The concept of race affects everyone, yet people often avoid discussing it. This is especially true within the context of games. Join us for the 2016 Game Devs of Color Expo, a two-part event where we’ll explore the intersection of race and games!

In our day-long event, we will hold a roundtable as well as an arcade. The roundtable will enable attendees to share and learn about experiences as game creators and game players from different backgrounds. At the arcade, you’ll be able to play a selection of incredible games made by people of color. Come encounter some great new perspectives and games!

The 2016 Game Devs of Color Expo is open to people of all genders, races, and sexual orientations. We want this to be a safe space to express yourself. Please let us know if there’s anything we can do to make you feel comfortable attending this event.

Arcade submissions

Are you a game developer of color who wants to show your game at the arcade? Submit your game using this form! We will contact you to confirm.

Game submissions are open until December 31, 2015.

Need-based free tickets

Brooklyn Gamery aims to make this event accessible by offering low-cost tickets. However, we also know some people have low/no income and therefore are unable to afford the $5 ticket. If this is the case for you, please contact us at – we will happily help you gain access to this event.
