Happy Sunday! I’m delighted to announce we recently welcomed several new writers to the FemHype team. Give them a follow if you’re looking for new friends! ✌
This week, Ruth reviewed the breakout indie game Toren, grappling with PC controls and existential despair. Shel Shepard celebrated the importance of Krem’s inclusion in Dragon Age while discussing several pitfalls of his portrayal. On yet another quest for diversity, Sissorelle Ferox detailed her quest for LGBTQIA+ representation in MMORPGs, specifically RuneScape. There’s also a game currently on its last legs on Kickstarter getting diversity right, titled Herald, and I interviewed the team behind the project! For those of you non-devs out there, Mary Rachel tackled the genre of Graphic Adventure by comparing/contrasting The Wolf Among Us and Life Is Strange. Finally, LA Ryter shares her experiences falling in and out of inspiration with Lara Croft as her character evolved through the series.
And now, for the moment you’ve all been waiting for: our weekly Twitter roundup! Every Sunday, we curate a list of the top posts hitting the Twitterverse in the games industry. They can be sweet, salty, and downright biting, but what they all have in common is a shared goal to bring diversity and intersectional feminism to a toxic culture we love despite its glaring faults. 💝
