Logical convention says players should know how their choices affect the world around them, but I see no reason why we need to lay out everything in front of them. http://gamasutra.com/blogs/SergioRosa/20141117/230333/Heres_an_idea_stupid_choices.php Mon, 17 Nov 2014 03:44:00 EST 'Hatred' and its senseless quest to be... like almost every other game out there... - by Sergio Rosa http://gamasutra.com/blogs/SergioRosa/20141021/228215/Hatred_and_its_senseless_quest_to_be_like_almost_every_other_game_out_there.php This "so-ultra-violent" 'Hatred' videogame is doing exactly the same thing other games have done in the past, but for some reason a lot of people react like they just realized evil exists in the world. http://gamasutra.com/blogs/SergioRosa/20141021/228215/Hatred_and_its_senseless_quest_to_be_like_almost_every_other_game_out_there.php Tue, 21 Oct 2014 02:00:00 EDT Videogames, sexual violence, and the "oh, 'feminism' is so offensive" - by Sergio Rosa http://gamasutra.com/blogs/SergioRosa/20141013/227579/Videogames_sexual_violence_and_the_quotoh_feminism_is_so_offensivequot.php Indie So, gamers are offended that a videogame female character says she doesn't trust men (calling her feminist), but they don't care that she said that because she was a rape victim and actually fears men? That's totally OK because... reasons... right? http://gamasutra.com/blogs/SergioRosa/20141013/227579/Videogames_sexual_violence_and_the_quotoh_feminism_is_so_offensivequot.php Mon, 13 Oct 2014 02:11:00 EDT The scary horror game "that wasn’t really that scary" - by Sergio Rosa http://gamasutra.com/blogs/SergioRosa/20140930/226700/The_scary_horror_game_quotthat_wasnt_really_that_scaryquot.php Design,Console/PC,Indie I began working on this game with the idea of making a "scary horror game" but the more I worked on it the more it became a nice but bittersweet love story between two girls. Logical convention says this was completely wrong... (but was I really wrong?) http://gamasutra.com/blogs/SergioRosa/20140930/226700/The_scary_horror_game_quotthat_wasnt_really_that_scaryquot.php Tue, 30 Sep 2014 01:46:00 EDT The trials and tribulations of making a game about rape - by Sergio Rosa http://gamasutra.com/blogs/SergioRosa/20140910/225289/The_trials_and_tribulations_of_making_a_game_about_rape.php Design,Indie 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 http://gamasutra.com/blogs/SergioRosa/20140910/225289/The_trials_and_tribulations_of_making_a_game_about_rape.php Wed, 10 Sep 2014 02:53:00 EDT Should female characters be considered a 'feature'? - by Sergio Rosa http://gamasutra.com/blogs/SergioRosa/20140812/223144/Should_female_characters_be_considered_a_feature.php Design,Console/PC,Indie,Social/Online,Smartphone/Tablet 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. http://gamasutra.com/blogs/SergioRosa/20140812/223144/Should_female_characters_be_considered_a_feature.php Tue, 12 Aug 2014 12:28:00 EDT
