Jennifer Allaway invites game players and game developers to respond to a survey about diversity in video games…[and] plans to present her findings alongside Sheri Graner Ray, owner of Zombie Cat Studios and author of Gender Inclusive Game Design—Expanding the Market, at GDC 2015.
A little more from it:
One survey is specifically designed for players who are not in the games industry and asks consumers for their opinions on diversity in the games themselves, whether players feel represented in games, whether a discussion about diversity is important, and whether game developers are doing enough for diversity.
Another survey is available for game developers and asks questions about target audience, opinions on how important diversity is to players, and predictions of players’ behaviors surrounding diversity in games.
If you play or make games of any kind (and not just indie games) you may want to consider participating in this survey. Hopefully the results will be explained a little more than % for more diversity vs % who don’t. Looking at the questions could be beneficial as well since they can help make you think about what you get from games in relation to what you would like in games. Even if you don’t complete the survey it is a good thing to consider stuff like this every now and then.
And here it finally is. Made mostly during my 2 weeks in hospital. Please keep in mind that this is a Sharecart1000 game, so for the full experience check out some of the other games. I hope you enjoy ~
For thousands of years, we told stories from one generation to the next. Our stories help us to understand how the world is ordered and our place within it. But what good are old stories if the wisdom they contain is not shared?
In Never Alone, players take on the roles of Nuna, a young Iñupiaq girl and an Arctic fox, in an atmospheric puzzle platformer that combines traditional folklore, stories, settings, and characters handed down over many generations by Alaska Native people whose roots and heritage date back millennia.
Featuring imagery and themes drawn directly from Iñupiat and other Alaska Native cultures, Never Alone features striking visuals, emphasizes the sensibilities and perspective of these indigenous Arctic people and requires players to work cooperatively to succeed in challenging and harsh environments.
