Girls Ask


Are you a parent of guardian with a girl who loves videogames? Does she have an idea for a game?

We’d like her help! We are collecting questions girls have about how videogames are made for an upcoming series sponsored by Facebook’s Women in Gaming initiative called Girls Level Up: Ask a Developer.

Have her fill out

to get started.

The Inspiration

In 2015, Laila Shabir and Girls Make Games welcomed Anne Edgar from Artifact Studios into their summer camp in Menlo Park, California to make a short documentary about what video games mean to girls and women. Anne witnessed first hand how encouragement from a teacher, parent, or mentor can make a big difference in who we become. And she saw girls transform themselves from game fans into creative, tenacious, confident video game makers. Our hope is the ASK A DEVELOPER series will give girls all over the world a taste of what it’s like to make a video game, and inspire a new generation of  game designers and programmers.
