There's a big hole in the Gaming Industry that needs to be filled. Missing are African-Americans. With a successful Game Development business, B'Bop and Friends will be able to develop and provide Tech employment opportunities to minorities, start an internship and mentoring program for minorities who dream of becoming Game and App Developers and Creators. B'Bop and Friends is positioned to interrupt the cycle of non-inclusion in this multi billion dollar industry.
Children need to see that it's possible and obtainable for African-American's to use their imagination and Technology to develop solutions that solve problems and change the world. Children need to see African-American's in the profession's they are being encouraged to pursue. We also need to be in a position to assist minorities with developing their Tech skills.
I started a gaming business because of the interest African-American children have in games. I know that we can reach them here and that's my goal and my mission to help our children become developers and creators, not just users and buyers of Tech. They need to have an interest, but it's up to us to give them the exposure and opportunities to develop those interest.
A young Concept Artist who attends College of Creative Studies in Detroit has joined our team and will be creating the Concept Art for the new characters we will be using in the next release of the game, After seeing the work the Concept Artist is doing, 16 and 15 year old Gamer's became very interested in Game Development and asked if they can work with us to create games. After watching them play the B'Bop and Friends Basketball Game which they figured out on their own and the feedback they provided, I knew right away I needed them to be on the Game Design team. I decided to bring them on as B'Bop and Friends Interns to help design and test the new enhancements for this project. They are very smart and learn very quickly. They are very happy and very excited to have this once in a life time opportunity to intern at a Game Development Company and be on a Game Design team at 16 and 15 years old.
