In this lecture, he’ll show you the past and future of women in gaming: what they contributed to the early development of the medium and how they will change it in the 21st century. He examines several different aspects of the question, including the way women are portrayed in games; women as designers and developers; and the wants and needs of the female player.
“Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did, only backwards and in high heels.” Women game developers must also work backwards and in high heels — backwards because they are usually developing games for a male market; in high heels because they are often impeded by a masculine development culture.
This talk is open- and highly recommended to all game students!
