Wild how 2020 was 3 years ago.
I joke, but you just watch, you’ll find yourself thinking the exact same thing. Remember when it was 2019 and then 2 weeks later it was time to celebrate new years again? Anyways, tons of socials and events to submit your game to, so please be aware of deadlines! Show your games to the world! You deserve it! See something that should be in the newsletter? Send it to us! I’ll pop it in faster than you can say…uhh…a really long word!
Also, it’s Black History Month! If you know any Black creators, check out their work and tell them that it’s valid and appreciated–even when February is over. ESPECIALLY when February is over.
If you’re a Black creator and want to chill with people like yourself, get your butt over to the Ubisoft Black Game Pros Mixer! (See below )
Don’t forget, there’s Google Calendar, in which you can check out all of the events here in one handy, downloadable place!
WHERE TO HAUNT – SOCIALS
The Indie Mixer is back! Go make some friends!
DMG will be hosting their monthly Speaker Social! Go see what’s up in the community!
Did you submit a game for Comics X Games? Time is running out! Deadlines are coming! Give us what you have! The game doesn’t have to be huge! It can be a small bite-sized game, too! If you’ve always wanted to showcase your game to 100s of people, now is the time! I believe in you!
COMING AND GOING ATTRACTIONS
In honour of Black History Month, Ubisoft Toronto is proud to host its first Black Game Pros Mixer on Thursday, February 6. The event will bring together Black talent and professionals from the local video game and tech industry for an evening of networking and a panel discussion featuring Tanya DePass (I Need Diverse Games) and Raymond Graham (Unity Technologies).
BREADWINNER – JOBS/GIGS/OPPORTUNITIES/DEADLINES
Where’s my French at? Are you a game developer whose game is about to launch and for which you want to do a multilingual release?
Are you now thinking of localizing to increase your market and revenue, now that your game has shipped?
Are you still in development, and feeling stuck because the grant you are applying for requires you to offer a French version?
