Our community has long been concerned with the lack of suitable Jewish representation in games, and we want to help you take action into your own hands. This year, we’re hosting a workshop so you can make your “Jewish game” come to life! You will get to work alongside fellow Jewish game devs and allies for 45 minutes of creative concepting and share how you want Jewish people and culture in games presented. Concepts will be shared as part of the networking portion of this session.

Takeaway

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

Intended Audience

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