become a tentacle Zone mentor

Our incubator supports early-stage studios with founders from backgrounds that are underrepresented in the industry and the program is free to those taking part. And because it’s virtual, it means we can accept applicants from all over the world.

The program has made a valuable contribution to the devs who have participated in the last two years (meet out alumni from 2021 and 2022). But its value comes from the experience and insights of the mentors and tutors who kindly lend us their time. It’d be impossible without them. 

That’s where you come in! We need experienced games industry folk to get involved and help guide the next generation of gaming talent.


Here’s what we need from you:

  • Two hours of your time, every fortnight between Feburary and May 2024.
  • Experience in the games industry working on PC and / or console titles – ideally in the indie space. 
  • A desire to help and guide those on their indie dev journey.


You don’t need to have been a mentor previously and we don’t require you to have decades of industry experience – although obviously it’s great if you do! We also don’t need you to do any in-person meetings – all parts of the programme are virtual.

If you feel like you fit the bill and you have the time available to dedicate to helping others, we’d love to hear from you. You can find our short mentor application form here. And you can discover lots more about the programme over on our incubator page.
