What would change about your favorite game if a woman had created it?

(Ponderings are our way of posing questions to look at things through a different lens or from another angle).

Take action

1. Ask your kids or class (or self!) what they think life would be like. What changes would happen? How would their games look? What do they think they would notice? Why are not more games developed by women? What would be good about it? Bad about it? Do they think it’s a good idea?

2. Look up programs in your local area that run workshops or extra-curricular lessons in game design, story development and coding.

3. Go check out the games in your home or school. How many have been created by women or women led companies? Make a promise to yourself that the next 3 you borrow or buy are made by women.

4. Think about how you can use game design & development as a force for good. For example, a climate change game was created that recently made people want to take action. What could you create to make a problem better or create action?
