    Story Synth Microgrants

    We’re excited to announce that we've disbursed all 100 grants (a total of $30,000) to grant recipients!

    The Story Synth microgrant program is focused on helping marginalized game designers create, publish, and monetize games on the Story Synth platform! Each microgrant is a $300 award. In addition to those funds, game developers will receive proceeds generated by their games through micropayments.

    More information about the program is available here. You can find many of the completed games here storysynth.org/Microgrant-Gallery
