Gamasutra - Blogs Sergio Rosa's Blogs Fri, 31 Oct 2014 04:44:42 EDT en-us (Simon Carless) 'Hatred' and its senseless quest to be... like almost every other game out there... - by Sergio Rosa 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. Tue, 21 Oct 2014 02:00:00 EDT Videogames, sexual violence, and the "oh, 'feminism' is so offensive" - by Sergio Rosa 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? Mon, 13 Oct 2014 02:11:00 EDT The scary horror game "that wasn’t really that scary" - by Sergio Rosa 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.

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 12:28:00 EDT Don’t simply ‘ask’ for more female characters - by Sergio Rosa Art,Console/PC,Indie,Smartphone/Tablet 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 Mon, 30 Jun 2014 02:31:00 EDT
