That's totally OK because... reasons... right? http://www.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://www.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://www.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://www.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://www.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://www.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://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/SergioRosa/20140812/223144/Should_female_characters_be_considered_a_feature.php Tue, 12 Aug 2014 12:28:00 EDT Don’t simply ‘ask’ for more female characters - by Sergio Rosa http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/SergioRosa/20140630/219931/Dont_simply_ask_for_more_female_characters.php 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 http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/SergioRosa/20140630/219931/Dont_simply_ask_for_more_female_characters.php Mon, 30 Jun 2014 02:31:00 EDT
