Girls Make Games is an organization that sets up programs and camps for young women to develop video games. One of the results of the organization’s initiative is BlubBlub: Quest Of The Blob, which is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter and is almost to its goal.
You can find out more about BlubBlub: Quest Of The Blob here, and Girls Make Games, the program that lead to the game’s creation, here. We also spoke with founder Laila Shabir in the June 2016 issue of Game Informer magazine. The program gives girls, from ages 8-16 in 35 different cities, the necessary tools to learn about and create games. The program takes place in a summer camp setting and is fostered by supporters like Xbox, PopCap, MIT Game Lab, and more.
Among 32 teams working on games, five made it to the finals to pitch their game to judges like David Brevik (Diablo), Anna Kipnis (DoubleFine), and Katie Stone Perez (ID@Xbox). BlubBlub was the winner.
