It all started when…

The mentorship program is designed for individuals just getting started as independent game designers. Mentorship may be offered to applicants who show promise but are not ready to be full members of the IGDN. A person taking part in the mentorship program will be matched with an experienced IGDN member as a mentor. The mentor and mentee will read a series of articles on aspects of the business of game design, and meet with each other via video chat to discuss the topics. A person who successfully completes the mentorship program will be able, with the blessing of their mentor, to re-apply for IGDN membership 6 months after their original application.
