Women in Games Boston - January meetup
Tuesday, January 31, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EST)
Come on down to The Asgard to have some food, some drinks, and lots of socializing with excellent people!
Our speaker this month is Heather Albano, a freelance writer of various forms of fiction. (You should check out her new book, Timepiece!) Among other roles, Heather works as a game designer for Choice of Games, which makes award-winning text-based multiple choice games for the iPhone, Android, Kindle, Palm, and web. Heather co-wrote Choice of Broadsides, a swashbuckling naval adventure in the spirit of Forester's Hornblower or O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin books, and Choice of Romance, a court intrigue in which a young noble comes to court looking for love and catches the monarch's eye.
Choice of Games has received quite a bit of positive press for the presentation of gender in both games (from Jezebel, from The Guardian, and from Metafilter, among others). Heather will discuss the thought processes behind these decisions, considerations and challenges with regard to their implementation, and both positive and negative feedback from players.
I give the headcount to the restaurant in advance so they can be prepared and set up for our ravenous horde, so if you're definitely coming, please RSVP as soon as you can so I can get an accurate number (and make sure there are enough of us present to meet the room's minimum).
