Hi folks! This year’s Game Chef got a bit delayed due to some turnover in the leadership. I have agreed to step in as interim Global Coordinator, and as such I am pleased to announce that this year’s Game Chef will run from August 17 to 26.
Since we’re getting a late start, I have an important favor to ask of all of you experienced chefs: help get the word out! Please share the info on Game Chef with any game communities you are part of.
I would also ESPECIALLY like to ask you to reach out PERSONALLY to one person who is interested in games but who has never designed a game before. (Bonus points if it’s a person from a group that has been underrepresented in game design — woman or nonbinary, person of color, etc). Game Chef is a great way to dip your toes into game design, and the community here is very supportive. But sometimes people need that personal nudge to believe that designing a game is something they can really do.
Thanks, and I look forward to seeing all of your great games next month!
