Yesterday I had the most incredible day.
Yesterday I visited the studio of Good Game: Spawn Point, at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
Good Game: Spawn Point is a TV show about video games, and its target audience are young gamers – under 10s - kids who spend their days playing Minecraft, Smash Bros., and Mario Kart.
The show's creator is a woman, her name is Janet Carr. She is a real hero of mine, and I'll never forget what she said.
"The kids are so innocent in the way they love games," she explained, as she showed me around the set, "but the thing that really amazes me is just how many girls there are gaming.
"When I speak to developers I always say, ‘you better start thinking about the games you want to make in a couple of years for teenage girls - because soon there's going to be a whole army of them, and they're going to be angry when they see what's out there.'"
And then I went home and I watched the new trailer for Hitman Absolution.
