Non Traditional Games-By Non Traditional Developers

A bit of a short post. Been busy trying to update the site a bit. I did come across this cool initiative called the “Difference Engine”. The main idea is to expose game development to new groups of people. This particular session asked women with little to no game development experience to make a game. The results were a lot more varied than the ‘bald space marine’ meme that you see in most modern games. It is an interesting concept, I would love to see other initiatives that target other minorities. When others are making games, they can’t help but draw on their own personal experiences. The results should open games up to a wider audience. You can check out the results of the first incubator program here.
