Diversity =
Creativity

WINGS invests in indie games by teams in which women and marginalized genders developers have key positions. Our investment decisions are driven by a selection committee of outstanding women game developers. We focus on high potential games that will be successful on the market.

Developers First

WINGS is funding games up to $500,000.
Our focus is on helping developers build a sustainable studio with a developer-first approach (revenue share from the first dollar, complete creative and business control, ensuring you own IP rights and are at the center of our communication). We are keeping the process of getting funded as easy as possible: simple online application, 1-month turnaround on submission, flexible milestone payments, and a 3-page contract. We strive to support developers in any area they need help with, and in particular with business development & platform relationships.

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
