What does WGJ mean
to you?

To me, game jams have always stood for growth, learning, and strengthening the game dev community. Women Game Jam is an opportunity to support the women* and LGBTQ+ community and provide a platform to empower them in our community.

George Padua

Women Game Jam is important because diversity makes better games! Having a wider array of opinions, backgrounds and world views at the table leads to a product that is more inclusive to all people.

Jared Tan

The Women Game Jam is really close to my heart as it was my first Game Jam back in Brazil. For me, it represents a safe space for women to create and share ideas making our voices heard.


MJW to me is exciting and beautiful. There are so many possibilities and opportunities that come with it, and we are just getting started 🙂


WGJ means having a space to explore new genres of game design and story telling.
