Diversity =
Creativity

WINGS invests in indie games by teams in which women and marginalized gender developers hold key positions.

Our mission is simple: find talented, diverse teams and fund their high potential games. The success of diverse teams will lead to more unique ideas coming to life, new voices being heard, and new games that cater to a wider variety of players.

Our investment decisions are driven by a selection committee of outstanding women game developers. We passionately believe that better representation leads to better creativity.

I tried pitching Boyfriend Dungeon but the publishers I met – who were all men – didn’t get it. It really discouraged me, and made me doubt myself as a creator. Tanya X Short
