The fantastic #1ReasonToBe Game Developers Conference panel is now available to watch for free online. Brenda Romero, Robin Hunicke, Elizabeth Sampat, Mattie Brice, Leigh Alexander and Kim McAuliffe each shared stories of working as women in the video game industry in a galvanizing, often emotional panel that was emblematic of the overarching theme of change that ran through much of this year's GDC.
Notes taken: Don't give me compliments ever, because I have a vagina, wither its about my work or my looks. That's super watered down, but it seems to be the general point of every "girl gamer/creator."
The segment on game creation classes/programs at schools though was very interesting though, and exactly how I felt about them and why I left it.
Pretty cool panel.
