Mentorship Program

Join us for this year's Mentorship Program! The Mentorship Program allows new designers to bring their games to breakout and have them playtested by industry insiders and game designers. This new program is focused on helping new designers get professional feedback on their games and to help them meet industry experts to network with. Each game will be played with an industry guest for two hours, including a feedback session on the experience. There is also space for an optional break of fifteen minutes if you and your mentor wish to take it.

This year, we have room for ten games. Card games, board games, RPGs - whatever you would like to work on, we will work to pair you with one of our mentors who is best placed to advise you. The Mentorship Program is Friday, July 15th, and sessions can begin either at 7pm or 8pm.

Tickets for the event are $20, and are on a first come first serve basis, so reserve your session today! Submissions will close on Monday July 8th. In order to attend the event, you must have a ticket to the Breakout Gaming Convention. Breakout reserves the right to reject games if they are in conflict with our inclusivity policy. In these cases, a refund will be issued. Tickets can be purchased in our Shop here.
