Audience Level: I acknowledge GDC 2021 is an all-digital event and commit to participating virtually.

In the mid of the 2020 pandemic the Club Picocho was created to demonstrate that games could be made in México amidst the struggles we live in. After a year of making a game each month we want to share the lessons that helped new and old developers from the club, and what other good things came out of the more than 50 games made.


Attendees will be provided with examples of how to use prototyping tools and gamedev communities to support and empower each other as professional developers.

Intended Audience

Leaders and organizers of game dev communities and events, developers struggling to finish their projects, and members of underrepresented communities struggling to find people to collaborate with.
