Space Invaders: The Fight for a More Inclusive Gaming Industry
31. January 2019
16:30 - 17:20
From the earliest days of video arcades to the most current home console hits, women have been treated as invaders in the male-dominated games industry; a reality that’s reflected in games themselves, and in the surrounding culture. This talk examines the past and present of gaming to illuminate how some bold industry intruders have begun to change gaming culture for the better, and what we need to do to continue making video games the inclusive industry that it should be.
This session has been invited by Ludicious and is part of the summit “INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCES. A PLAYFUL REFLECTION ON SOCIETY”, curated by ZHdK Subject Area of Gamedesign in collaboration with Ludicious Zürich Game Festival.
