Our community has long been concerned with the lack of suitable Jewish representation in games, and we want to help you bring your “Jewish game” to life! You will get to work alongside fellow Jewish game devs and allies for 30 minutes of creative concepting and share how you want Jewish people and culture in games presented. Concepts can be shared as part of the networking portion of this session.


Attendees will come away with solid concepts to begin creating Jewish games and receive feedback from Jewish game developers. Furthermore, this roundtable will facilitate new connections between Jewish game developers as well as allies.

Intended Audience

This roundtable is open to Jewish game developers, allies, and those who want to create a positive impact concerning Jewish identities by creating “Jewish games”.
