Valve has pledged to sponsor the Game Developers of Color Expo, which is set to take place on September 19, online, which organiser Shawn Alexander Allen has called “decent first steps” after the company was criticised for not making a statement about Black Lives Matter. 

Allen, developer of side-scrolling beat’em up Treachery in Beatdown City, shared via Twitter that Valve would be a “big sponsor” in expo. According to Allen, Valve will also support the Black Voices in Gaming event hosted by Justin Woodward, director of development studio Interabang and organiser of the recent Guerrilla Collective digital games festival.
