Hello Patrons! Thank you for your support in January & February, it kept us online, our podcast going and even let us pay for articles on our site the last couple of months. As long as we stay at $750 or more a month, we can pay for two or more articles from the community!
As for stuff we’re doing, it’s a lot and thus we’ve been busy and not updating regularly. What’s the haps you ask?
We’re now an affiliate of AnyKey.org , another organization focused on diversity and inclusion in the industry.
We’re going back to PAX East as part of the Diversity Lounge!
Going to PAX East this year? Come by the Diversity Lounge in Room 151AB between 10am and 6pm Friday – Sunday, say hi, learn more about what we do and also buy raffle tickets for prizes! All funds raised from the raffle go towards supporting our work.
We’ll have the Quantum Break Prima Guide and Xbox 1 Dusk Controller, Game Dev Barbie, as well as a copy of The Offworld Collection and some XB1 games as raffle prizes.
We’ll also have I Need Diverse Games buttons, which we’re asking $1 donation for. There’ll be a jar on our table and a Square reader for anyone feeling generous but low on cash.
AlterConf is coming back to Chicago on June 10! We’ve gotten three passes thanks to the generosity of the convention runner, Ashe Dryden. We’ve got two passes left so please pass this opportunity on to someone who could get a lot out of the event but otherwise might not be able to attend.
We’ve partnered with C2E2 in Chicago to give away 3 tickets to the annual comics, tv, movies and other geekery expo in April! The contest is open to everyone and winners will be picked randomly after it closes on February 20th. This is in order for ReedPOP to have time to mail winners their tickets. Details and short google form here: https://ineeddiversegames.org/2017/01/19/win-tickets-to-c2e2-april-21-23-2017/
Things are moving quickly and our Director is going to be out and about at a lot of events this spring! Check out her space cypheroftyr.com for updates and news!
As always, thank you for your patronage and keeping us going every month.
