Escaping the Digital Stone Age
Escaping the Digital Stone Age is a zine by Cyan Coury promoting new ideas for what the next wave of female representation in video games could look like.
I’m filing this one under games as well as print because any serious game dev these days ought to take a look at these character descriptions / educational moments for Inspiration.
Having worked with game devs and artists who seemed fully committed to perpetuating the barbie doll aesthetic, I can attest to the need for this zine. Full disclosure, I had no female characters at all in a game I designed and built until a (male) friend suggested I add them. And I consider myself a feminist!
