About us.

We are a non-profit that supports people on their journey in developing the skills & confidence they need to thrive in games and immersive.

Our mission

Into Games was founded on the belief that everyone should have access to the support they need to thrive, no matter their background. Our journey started in 2019, driven by a passionate board made up of game industry leaders with a desire to help create a more diverse and accessible UK games sector. Today, our trajectory remains steered by the ever-evolving needs and aspirations of the industry and its rapid growth.

As a non-profit Community Interest Company, we focus on inspiring and nurturing people at every stage of their careers. Whether you're a student, an aspiring professional, or presently working in the sector, our mission revolves around empowering your advancement.

We forge dynamic partnerships with game studios and industry experts spanning the UK, uniting to deliver training, mentorship, and unique opportunities that pave the way for developing skills, expanding networks, and nurturing confidence. Our single aim is to empower individuals to construct a fulfilling and joyful path into a job in games that they absolutely love. 

Our current focus is on supporting those from low-income backgrounds into the sector, and all our programme work and resource is revolved around that goal. 

You can find out more about how we work here, look at some of our programme work or just reach out and say hello.
