Hand Eye Society Encourages Women to Develop Games

The Hand Eye Society will be running two game incubators in Toronto over the next several months, both of which focus on making it easier for women to get involved in creating video games.

The group aims to get more underrepresented groups involved  in game creation, and is working to dispel certain myths about game development that prevent people from trying it out, such as the assumption that developers have to be experienced in programming and mathematics.

According to their article in the Torontoist, anyone who has "completed a project in a creative medium" is eligible to participate.
