Founder, Achimostawinan Games
Meagan Byrne is a Métis game designer and the co-founder of Achimostawinan Games, a video game company dedicated to developing Indigenous games for an Indigenous audience. She is also digital and interactive coordinator with imagineNATIVE, the world’s largest Indigenous film and media arts festival. “I want to tell Indigenous stories from a modern perspective and have them look towards the future rather than just the past,” Byrne has said, adding that she hopes to empower other Indigenous game designers to share their stories and give them the same opportunities she was given.
