- to champion Wales as a place to make games.
- to champion the games industry in general.
- to grow the Welsh games industry.
- to represent the industry’s interests, and act as an advocate on behalf of the Welsh industry.
If you agree that these are worthy aims, and are happy to support Games Wales in carrying them out, then you can help!
