Hi! I'm Nate (he/him). I created Work With Indies– a kind job board and inclusive community dedicated to helping people find and fill roles working for and with indie game developers. We’ve since become a vital community resource and are making a real difference in people’s lives.

Our aspirations are not only to make it easier to find work in indie games but to help make indie games a better place to work.

So, when I saw James Batchelor's tweet this morning, the one in which he describes his 7 year old son's dream job of going around and thanking developers for the games they've made for us, I thought it was a brilliant idea.

A regular practice of expressing and sharing more gratitude for our fellow game developers would certainly make for a better environment and experience for all of us working in games.

Thus, as James requested and many have repeated in his replies, why not make "Developer Thanker" an official role? Luckily, I know a guy. 😁



  • Using your social media platform of choice, send one (or more, at your leisure) thank you note to a game developer (team or individual) who created a game that is meaningful to you
  • You may wish to describe how the game, or a detail within, impacted or inspired you; or, you might describe a particular feature or moment that you appreciated– don't be afraid to tell them how their game made you feel
  • Add the hashtag #ThankYouGameDev to your post



  • Be kind



  • This is a commission based role with each thank you note resulting in a commensurate amount of good vibes returned to the sender
  • With your act of gratitude having positively contributed to the developer's well-being, let alone their creativity and motivation, you will have helped to make their future games better– games which you will soon get to play and enjoy
