Founded in 2019, our Berlin-based collective Food for Thought Media is made up of experienced and well-established players from the games and culture branches. We develop educational computer games, media and cultural projects about LGBTQIA+, gender, identity, sexuality, public sphere, cultural heritage, climate and environment using creative technologies. Our mission is to publish games for children and adolescents with characters of all sexes and sexualities as well as different ethnicities, body types, mental and physical abilities that have an educational value to support cultural diversity and sustainability. As women, trans people, queers, migrants and mothers of teenagers, we see diversity not as ornamental, but as a core part of our identities. Consequently, we incorporate not only our professional know-how in our specialist areas, but also our personal experiences and different perspectives into every experience we create.
