The Future: as female audiences continue to grow, game developers include more and more women characters in playable and supporting roles. In this landscape increasingly dominated by strong-willed women heroines who do it all, how do you make yours stand out? The historical debate over whether or how to include women in games long past, this talk turns to focus on factors that bring unique appeal to your game: a breadth and variety of new narrative and gameplay options brought by a range of characters and personalities inspired by real women in history, and contemporary women important to game developers you know.
Attendees will gain insight to help them research and create female characters, as well as suggestions for drawing narrative design and game mechanics from such characters. The bulk of the talk will consist of real women's stories, from the outwardly heroic to the quiet heroism of the ordinary.
