Girls Make Games Summer Camp Registrations Open!

If you’re a Sydney or Melbourne lass then you can now register to go on an awesome Summer Camp with Girls Make Games.  If you’re not familiar with Girls Make Games the name is pretty self explanatory, but to put it simply they’re an organisation that helps empower young girls with the tools to make video games.  Not only do they help with teaching girls how to make games, but also how to pitch their ideas to companies, and even visit existing Game Developers.

The best part is these camps have proven to be successful, with girls from one of the groups even launching a kickstarter campaign that was funded 3 times over.  This means that not only do attendees of these camps have a great time, but the skills they learn and put in to practice actually work, and they really do make games, good ones, from the look of it!

If this has peaked your interest, and I really hope it has you can find heaps more information about Girls Make Games over at their site, and also register to be a part of these upcoming camps.  We sorely need more kickarse female game developers in the world, so go on, and become one!

About the Author

Muse Shake

Gamer, geek, artist & all round swell lady. Video games first sparked a passion with me when my parents decided I wasn't allowed them, forbidden fruit always being the sweetest I've not looked back since my first experiences even though they had to be snuck in at friend's houses. When I'm not working or playing games I'm usually drawing, or writing about games, while secretly resenting that when I turned ten no one gave me a Charmander to roam the land with.
