VoxPop Games, an independent gaming development platform, has announced a new career readiness program aimed at helping college students break into the gaming industry. The program is a collaboration with Marist College, Bradley University, and Stony Brook University, and will expand to more colleges and universities in 2024. The program allows students to find job opportunities with indie developers and build their own games using VoxPop's platform. The platform also provides strategic counseling, production and content analysis, and profit sharing for all collaborators.

The program is not just aimed at students studying STEM-oriented degrees, but also those from humanities departments, with the goal of providing opportunities for artists, animators, localizers, producers, and storytellers. The idea for the program began with the Latin American & Caribbean Studies (LACS) department at Stony Brook University, where the COO of VoxPop Games, Marc Anthony Rodriguez, graduated as a philosophy major in 2005.

VoxPop Games is a New York based, game development and distribution platform that caters to independent developers. The platform allows developers to find collaborators using a percentage of their future profits, and provides an automated payment system for contractors. VoxPop is part of the NYC MOME Games Industry Council and collaborates with non-profit groups like the IGDA NYC. The company aims to disrupt the gaming market by creating systems for smaller content creators to prop each other up through collaboration and talent.
