Agnieszka Mulak, Hubert Sobecki: Diversity in Games: Pitfalls and Possible Solutions

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many people want to play games with a diverse, unique cast of characters. Who could be more suited to oblige than us, two somewhat discriminated writers, fed up with sexist and homophobic content as well as both lack of representation and overt tokenism? Soon enough feedback about our game forced us to realize, how difficult the task actually is. Our creation definitely was not as transparent and self-aware as we imagined. Now we would like to share our experiences with you so that the next time you try to create a diverse world in your game, you have it just a little easier. And when you fall in yet another stereotype trap of your culture (and you will!) you'll be better prepared for it.
