Game Fatale: it’s about games, for dames

That’s not “games for dames”, a marketing category that has produced such gems as Barbie Horse Adventures and – oh god – Mary-Kate and Ashley’s Magical Mystery Mall. No, this is writing about games for and by dames. There’s some precedent, but it remains true that in the highly commercial videogaming industry there’s a widespread presumption that games are for guys. Game Fatale is a blog that intends to offer a venue for discussion and commentary away from that false belief.

My friend Kerry of Really Fancy Games is one of the trio of contributors, and anyone who is developing a point-and-click adventure game based on the lives of the Bronte sisters is worth reading. The blog is to be launched “today”, so keep an eye on the site as I expect there’ll be a few articles for your perusal before the evening is out.
