IGDA Virtual Mentor Café: Supporting Game Developers Impacted by Layoffs and Studio Closures

Posted By Jen MacLean, Friday, September 28, 2018

It’s been a brutal month for game developers around the world, and like so many people in our community, the IGDA team wants to help the game developers impacted by layoffs and studio closures get back on their feet.

We run IGDA Mentor Cafés, ways for game developers to engage in short bursts of learning within their community, at leading events around the world, and we’re announcing our first virtual IGDA Mentor Café today, with the explicit goal of helping game developers who have been laid off in the past 60 days get help as quickly as possible.

The Virtual Mentor Café is open to everyone, regardless of discipline, career level, or geography.  You don’t have to be an IGDA member to participate. Fill out a short form that lets us know about the advice you need or can offer, agree that we can share your information with your chosen match, and commit to a 30-minute conversation by 15 October; we do the rest.

If you’ve been impacted by a layoff in the past 60 days, please sign up as a mentee here.

If you’d like to help other members of the global game development community with your knowledge, connections, and time, please sign up as a mentor here.

If you have questions, contact  Thanks for your support of the game development community.
