Session Name Writing The Unsung Experiences: Gender In Game Storytelling
Speaker(s) Leigh Alexander, Mattie Brice, Jenn Frank
Company Name(s) Gamasutra, San Francisco State University, Infinite Lives
Track / Format Game Narrative Summit
Overview The knell for broader representations of gender in games grows ever louder and more insistent, but games are slow to embrace new voices on gender and sexuality. This is in part because of a lack of diversity on dev teams and the challenge of speaking from experiences outside your own. What are the factors in this challenge, and how can thoughtful interactive storytellers move forward? In this discussion-oriented session, three outspoken women in game criticism share views, experiences and ideas.
