Help us level the playing field for creators of color.

Game Devs of Color Expo is a labor of love, organized by a small handful of volunteers. We can’t do it alone. Sponsorship helps us make bigger, better events that reach more people — which ultimately provides a larger platform for our diverse community.

Make your mark with a broad, diverse audience

The Game Devs of Color community features international creators and garners attention from attendees around the world. We are supporting and uplifting voices in games that are creating interesting and powerful work but do not have the same level of access to reseources as those with more privilege. You have the opportunity to align with and learn from the future of our globalizing world.

We are growing

Over six years, the Game Devs of Color Expo has transitioned from a single-day event to a 4 day festival featuring the work and voices of creators of color. In 2020 we highlighted 31 speakers and 36 games across talks, panels, game developer interviews, trailer reveals, and a Steam event called Gradient Convergence. Over 1500 people attended the ticketed portions of our event, and 700k viewers checked out Gradient Convergence.
