    Google+ is all aflutter with talk of the upcoming Indie+ event – running from the 9th to the 15th of July, Indie+ will take place exclusively online, leveraging the Google Hangout technology. Focused on “Indie game publishers, writers, artists, podcasters and bloggers”, the event will feature gaming slots and panel discussions on several topics, including the Depiction of Women in RPGs panel, hosted by our very own Arlene Medder. – Giulia

      It’s nice to see Fat Shark involves a female player in some of its games, wish other game makers did. I only use a PC for my games, maybe that limits me, but my lifestyle does not let me get anywhere near other types of devices like Xbox etc. I long for a first person female game I can really get into, become involved, pretty myself up in and become an integeral part of the game, ie not just some bit of ‘crumpet’ added in to liven things up for the guy doing all the action. Patience is a virtue, sigh.
