What is Game On?

At Payload Studios we have a fantastic team but recognise that there is more we, and the industry, should be doing to ensure we are truly inclusive. Game On, Payload Studio’s inclusion and diversity initiative, was created to help improve the diversity and inclusivity of our own studio as well as the wider industry. It includes a range of internal steps as well as our Game On events. 

Since April 2019 we have organised and hosted our series of public events focused on inclusion (these include panels, talks and workshops). These are open to our studio, Tentacle Zone residents and the wider games industry. We’re thrilled to have welcomed some incredible speakers as well as attendees from over 200 different studios/companies. 

Our events focus on specific topics, such as unconscious bias, while also amplifying the voices of diverse leaders, studios and some of the leading games industry diversity organisations.

Game On events improve attendees understanding of issues related to inclusion, diversity, equality and belonging. Our events also provide individuals and companies with actionable steps that can be taken to improve inclusivity and diversity. Highlights of some of our previous events can be found below.

We’ve excited to explore what the future holds for Game On and to continue driving positive change within the industry. We’re always happy to answer questions or speak to potential speakers or sponsors so if you’re interested in chatting please get in touch!
