WHO WE ARE
Friendship Garden Game Developers is a volunteer-run, registered 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to advocating for inclusivity in video games and empowering game makers often underrepresented in games. We work to remove financial barriers for developers to receive players, press, and publicity that are often systemically denied, connect developers to opportunities and resources to advance their craft, and cultivate a loving, supportive community of developers and players that eschew the toxic ideas often associated with gamer culture.
We aim to demonstrate that an inclusive, supportive, and gentle community of players and developers is not only a possibility, but the best way for gaming to thrive.
