Have you ever wondered if games could change the face of politics?

We think they can.

Games for the Many is a new political games studio and community of political game makers exploring how to make political impact with play. We believe games can change the world, for the many, not the few.

Join us this December for our first ever game jam. We're inviting any and all to join us at Finsbury Park’s Space4 for a weekend of making political games.

All are welcome, from experienced developers to campaigners and activists who have never coded before. For the novice designers amongst you, GFTM's game design team will be on hand to give you tips and tricks and a comprehensive introduction to beginner game design tools. Making games is for everyone and there will be plenty of help to make your ideas a reality.


Games for the Many is a non-profit collective of artists, designers and developers focused on using the power of play to change politics, supported by the Labour Party. We're working to pioneer the use of games as political campaigning tools.

If you have any questions, you can get in touch with us at hello@gamesforthemany.org.

This event is facilitated by Outlandish: a non-hierarchical workers cooperative that re-invests its profit democratically in positive social change. It is hosted at Space4 in Finsbury Park, a space sponsored by Outlandish and CoTech, dedicated to bringing together like-minded organisations in their aim to harness technology for social good and social change.
