As we welcome the New Year, Into Games are delighted to receive a wonderful gift before the end of the year - the brilliant, innovative folks at Media Molecule are joining as an Into Games Industry Partner for 21/22!
Creative minds behind Dreams - a universe of creative tools and game-making magic - have joined forces with Into Games to make game development, as well as the path into the industry, an accessible, fun, and rewarding journey.
Our Head of Partnerships & Development Brandon Cole had this to say on the collaboration:
“Dreams is a tool that helps creators across the globe build games, animation, art, and music in a way that's wholly accessible - and fun! This ethos resonates massively with our own at Into Games. Both our organisations believe that game-making and games careers should be accessible to anyone with a passion to create - irrespective of their background. I’m so looking forward to working with the wonderful folks at Media Molecule."
Over the next twelve months Into Games will be working with the talented staff at Media Molecule, to help them grow as confident educators and mentors - bringing the magic of Dreams to young people, careers seekers, and classrooms across the UK.
We’ll also support Media Molecule in exploring new and radical pathways into the games industry. Our organisations both believe that Dreams is a powerful tool to help creative individuals realise their potential and pursue a career in games. We’re going to work collaboratively to bridge the gap for passionate individuals from underrepresented groups who want to turn their love of game-making into a career.
Gem Abdeen, Director of Operations from Media Molecule added this on the partnership:
“We’re super excited to partner with Into Games. At Media Molecule we believe it’s incredibly important to raise up voices from underrepresented groups and be active in showcasing all the amazing opportunities within the games industry. We strongly believe you can’t be what you can’t see! With all the expertise and passion at Into Games, I can’t wait to see what we achieve together.”
Keep your eyes peeled for upcoming projects, panels, and more as we work with the lovely folks at Media Molecule to bring the power of Dreams and Into Games’ guidance, information and opportunities to our communities across the UK!
