A Montreal chapter for Women in Games International has been announced, and the chapter will launch during the International Game Developers Association summer event tonight, June 18. “As a vibrant hub of game development, we think it’s important that Montreal has a local WIGI chapter,” said co-founder Sharon Price. “There has been increased awareness around women who work in games, and how women are portrayed in games. We want to represent a positive, open, and visible presence for women in the industry.” The launch will be at Terrasses Bonsecours, Quais du Vieux-Port tonight. Thanks, GI International.
