Happy Mother’s Day, friends! 💐 To celebrate, Ashe tackled the trope mothers are so often relegated to in video games, while I took a stab at deconstructing the concept of witches as mothers in Dragon Age.

To bring on the heavy mid-week, I talked about my experiences as a gamer recovering from an eating disorder. Finally, with FemHype‘s fifth month now upon us, I thought it was about time we featured some of our earliest work here on the blog.
Today, we’re not only bringing you the latest tweets from folks fighting to level the playing field in games, but also a few safe coding resources for those of you looking to create a game for yourself! ✌ Let’s get to it then, shall we?
