Girls on Games: A Look at the Fairer Side of the Industry
Girls on Games is a collection of essays by female gamers about the their lives in the hobby world. They’re up on Kickstarter now and looking for funding.
From the campaign:
Girls on Games is a new book written by a compilation of female game industry professionals, with the aim to engage, entertain, and educate both seasoned gamers and game-makers as well as novice game inventors and those seeking positions within this amazing industry of ours!
When Elisa Teague first entered the tabletop game industry 15 years ago, the climate for women was very different than it is now. Even with great strides being made in the name of gender equality and numbers of women in the industry increasing, female game makers are still in a great minority and face amazing challenges in our otherwise inclusive field.
After compiling stories and advice for years, Elisa decided to write a book on the matter, and there is no better way to discuss such important topics than to include many voices with important viewpoints on the subject. So, we’ve gathered together some amazing contributors to each add a chapter on various game topics for a book that has never been see before!
