Description: Englobe is a niche form of consultancy that specializes in the geocultural and political dimension of game content localization and globalization - building on over 18 years experience in the global business environment and an academic background in geography, geopolitics and intercultural studies. The company provides practical, hands-on consultation on how to assess and build better accountability for often-overlooked geocultural risks in game content that can lead to negative backlash on the game developer. Englobe’s Principal Consultant, Kate Edwards, is a recognized thought leader in this unique area of business risk. Previously, as Microsoft’s Senior Geopolitical Strategist (a position she created), Kate was responsible for the company’s “geopolitical quality” across all products and locales, which included ongoing consultation with Microsoft Game Studios management, developers and designers as well as proactive content review on all titles on the Xbox, PC and online platforms.
