I don’t really know when the “rape" idea came up. I do know it took me a while to really decide if that was the path to go, not because I was worried about the event itself but because “rape” has become such a bad word in the gaming industry

So the "female characters" guy is at it again. I could write a 10 paragraph post about the subject, but I'm just going to ask the question and let you answer.

This is a stupid question (as a Latin American, I don't understand the inner workings of your gaming industry): Why are there so many industry-related-people talking about wanting more female leads in games, but yet so few making games with a female lead

Rezzed was an amazing event and I met a lot of very nice people. Also, people were mostly surprised we had gone from the other side of the world just to present the game at the event, all the way from El Salvador.

At the end of the day I wonder when games can make a change, and when they are just a piece of entertainment.

Gone Home offered the level of exploration I would have expected from Dear Esther. However, in the future please stay away from adventure-ish game elements unless you really need them.

Well it was online at some point but it was too NSFW so I took it down. Basically the story is about a man who molested his daughter... I think that upset some people in my country, maybe because they don 't like to see in movies something that actually ...

I have never played any MGS game either , but it doesn 't matter because I am not going to discuss Kojima 's position itself. r n r nI went to read a few articles about the subject because I didn 't even know the scene was present in the ...

I am a little confused by this well, a lot . If you use UE and you want to bring the game to consoles, you need to pay a lot for console licenses I 'm using UDK for our current game and the reason why I don 't bring the ...

I have to admit I thought the exact same thing. With Unity getting better and better, it 's getting harder to find reasons for using UE as a small developer. I 'm using UDK for my current project it 's just a few months away but I 'm on the ...

I like UE a lot UE3 at least but unfortunately it 's not very indie-friendly compared to other engines, like Unity. I can 't even begin to imagine how much licensing UE4 costs.

The linearity assures that every player who walks through the game gets every piece of the story without leaving anything behind. r nBut who knows, maybe the Memento of videogames is already on the way : r n r nI for one would completely love to see that happen. Actually ...
