Our Mission

Rad Magpie’s mission is diversity through radical interactive media. We are changing the landscape of game development by providing support, access, and resources to those traditionally under-represented in the industry. By providing community and mentorship, we create a space for new voices; by championing new voices, we bring radical new stories to the world.

Follow along with us as Ellie levels up and gains the equipment she needs to fulfill her mission!

Over the last year, we have grown to include

We’ve seen pretty rapid success, but we need our alliance to come together to sustain our progress. Join us — make a donation today!
