Happy Sunday, friends! We started the week off with an open call for new submissions, tackling a few reoccurring questions you’ve had about our process. Then, we boosted several small communities on both Twitch and YouTube in an effort to promote more inclusive Let’s Players. (You can still submit your channel to us for the next post, by the way!) Lindsay returned to share her tips for dealing with simulation (or motion) sickness while gaming. In light of Nintendo’s announcement and the largely critical response to two gay characters in the newly released Fire Emblem, Michelle B helped put into perspective the very different games culture in Japan for Westerners. After, I watched the documentary GTFO The Movie about women in the gaming community, and came away from it with more questions than when I’d gone in. We also celebrated the landmark SCOTUS same-sex marriage ruling with a little queer lady interlude because #LoveWins! Ruth then closed out the week with her take on the much-discussed Her Story, a narrative made all the more intriguing by its mechanics.
Now it’s time for our weekly Twitter roundup! And, once again, we’ve curated quite a few links with new opportunities in the games industry. Scroll to the bottom and take a look! Whether you’re looking for a new indie game to play, a potential job related to games, or just want to know all the cool stuff before your friends do, keep us on your watch list. ✌
