Welcome to the Girls Make Games Portal, a place where girls (or anyone!) with an internet connection can learn everything that goes into becoming a game developer. We’ll share tutorials, inspiring videos, resources for college applications, scholarships, games internships and more - all in one place.

This portal is a work in progress, and we want you to join us on the journey to making this space as amazing as possible. Send us your ideas, requests, feedback or just drop us a line to say hello at info@girlsmakegames.com

A big Thank You to Xbox for funding the initial concept & development of the project.

Let's make some awesome games together!
