Game Devs of Color Expo Events Importance
As previously stated, 2022 marks seven years of Game Devs of Color Expo, which happens to be a major event meant to highlight games created by game developers of color that would otherwise be ignored.
Ever since then, it has developed to also host talks, interviews, and panels led by POC in order to educate others on the realities of indie development and host discussions on storytelling and character development from POCs’ point of view.
Also, there is an award ceremony, where at least $90,000 in development grants would have awarded, which includes the $15,000 made in NY grant and the Game Devs of color Expo grant. The latter would go to three developers of color, each getting $25,000.
Game Devs of Color Expo has turned out to become such a valuable and vital event that offers POC the media exposure and funding that they never would have received in such a white-centric industry. And hopefully, it can continue to grow and help even more developers of color in the future, and continue to set a precedent for a more equitable gaming industry future.
