Discover how Mitu Khandaker, co-founder of Glow Up Games, went from gamer to game maker in this episode of Google Play's #GenerationPlay.

Wanting to see Black and Brown joy celebrated in games, Mitu co-founded Glow Up Games alongside her friend Latoya Peterson. Alongside other releases, they saw their vision come to life when HBO and Issa Rae asked them to create a game for the hit series Insecure, but the story doesn't stop there. Knowing how much a career in gaming has done for her, Mitu also teaches a game development class at NYU, encouraging people of color in the gaming community to break barriers.
