Just a month after starting the Girls Make Games camp for empowering young women to make games, founder Laila Shabir is proud to Kickstart her first game.
At Girls Make Games, girls aged 11-16 go through a program that teaches them about programming, game art, and design, after which they’re given a chance to make a game of their own. They’re mentored and ultimately judged by game industry professionals from Google, MIT, OUYA, and Double Fine Games, among others.
The winner gets a Kickstarter-- in this case, it’s seven young girls aged 10 to 16 that call themselves The Negatives. The girls have created a puzzle-RPG called The Hole Story, and they’re ready to fund it via Kickstarter. They’re asking for just $10,000 to finish the project, more than half of which has already been raised, with stretch goals for iOS and OUYA support.
This was the first of several Girls Make Games camps, eight of which will be in the US, with others in London, Warsaw, Copenhagen, Dubai, and Melbourne. So, if you’ve got a creative girl in your family and live near one of these cities, maybe it’s time to think about her future in game design. Just look at how the Negatives turned out.
