Happy International Women's Day

Women in Game Dev

Welcome to the Women in Dev Hub (WIDH).
A community space where all women in the game development
industry are invited to explore their potential and find their perfect fit.


Did you know that 30% of game developers are female, with a 22% increase since 2014? While this growth is encouraging, women are still underrepresented in the industry.

At Synty, we believe in supporting women in game development. Our community provides a safe and inclusive space for you to connect with others, share your experiences, and learn from industry experts. Whether you're a designer, programmer, artist, or anything in between, WIDH is here to help you explore and navigate the world of game development.
