I’ll probably head across – esp. want to take a look at the Game Girl Initiative in Surrey. It would be good to encourage a more positive gender balance in the industry here as it grows..
PS a project here in DCU asked male 15-17 year olds what was the difference between games aimed at men and women…ans included
‘women’s games are boring and crap’
‘the difference is a dance game and killing people’
‘one is more shoot em up, the girls are more mentally challenging’
The men’s games are all guns and cars. Girl’s ones are designing stuff’
