In honor of International Women’s Day, Lindsay has graciously offered free Steam keys of two games paving the way for leading ladies. It’s not enough for a game to include women NPCs or even a lady protagonist. We need to cultivate friendships between women if we’re ever going to make progress, and these games are doing just that! Let’s give them some love, yeah?
You could potentially win the first episode of Life Is Strange, which Nicole has already covered in her excellent review. Seriously, check that out if you missed it. The second possible prize is Defender Quest: Valley of the Forgotten. It’s a tower defense/RPG focused on tactical gameplay and a rich story with powerful women. Praise be!
So, you’re all about supporting women in the games industry. It’s why you’re here, isn’t it? Then help us honor International Women’s Day by celebrating the games making huge strides toward fully-realized lady characters, their friendships with other women, and the developers who tell these stories.
That’s it! If you have any questions, leave a comment below and we’ll get back to you. Good luck!
