I Need Diverse Games’ founder Cypheroftyr is speaking at WisCon. Come check it out!

Friday 2:30 pm University B / Ann Lemay, Ceri Young, KJ, Tanya DePass [M] & Kate Lansky Panel Hashtag: #FemaleGameWriters

There is a continuing false perception that video games are thoroughly dominated by male gamers and male developers. However data disproves this fallacy. This panel will discuss the actual demographics of gaming, and how to buck the idea of “appealing” to women with old stereotypes and tropes. I.E women are all casuals, and games like FFXV with an all male cast supposedly appeal to women for a change. We’ll also look at how narrative can drive an audience to or away from a game series such as Mass Effect, Dragon Age, etc.
