Another Sunday, another week gone. I hope you’re all doing well! ✌ We covered quite a lot of ground this week, starting with Ashe discussing the unfortunate plot device (or complete lack) of mothers in video games. Then, Emm took us through her first experience playing The Walking Dead and how Lee introduced her to the necessity of diverse games. We celebrated Earth Day enthusing about our favorite in-game maps and the worlds they allow us to inhabit! On a more serious note, Emily G tackled the toxicity currently permeating Let’s Play culture as well as the people who are fighting back. Tess Young was kind enough to answer my questions about Charmixy: Witch Academy, a game you should consider backing on Kickstarter! And finally, I make another case for feminism in the latest Telltale’s Game of Thrones episode.
Ready for the roundup? Every week, I personally curate a list of all the women (and our supporters) pushing for a more positive, diverse community in games. They tweet despite the overwhelming vitriol that still gets thrown at them to this day. Remember to share their work and send support, yeah? Let’s get to it, then!
