Games Designed by Black Game Designers Black History Month 2021 #BlackHistoryMonth
Today we celebrate 7 black game designers whose games you can support right now! Here’s more from Inverse:
Mainstream video games lack representation. Many characters featured in big-budget video games are white. The developers that work on those games are often white as well. There are small triumphs along the way like Spider-Man: Miles Morales, but the industry has a long way to go for equality.
To further equalize the industry, we need to support endeavors from developers of color. We’ve rounded up seven indie games by Black developers that you either buy right now or support by following the developers on social media. Any interaction can only stand to amplify their voice within the industry.
