What is Game On?

At Payload Studios we have a fantastic team but we recognise that there is more we, and the games industry, should be doing to ensure we are truly inclusive.

Game On is Payload Studios’ inclusion and diversity initiative and includes a regular programme of inclusion focused events, which are open to everyone in the games industry.

The first Game On event took place in April 2019 and since then we have hosted a variety of talks, panels and workshops. Highlights of some of our previous events are featured below.

By facilitating knowledge sharing around key topics related to equity, inclusion and diversity we hope to accelerate positive change within the industry. We also provide attendees with actionable steps they can use in their own organisations.

We’re thrilled to have welcomed a host of wonderful speakers and use our platform to amplify the voices of diverse leaders, studios and some of the leading games industry diversity organisations. Our events are free to attend have been attended by guests from over 200 different organisations.

If you’re interested in joining us at a future event (currently all online) please join our mailing list!
