about this item

Women have been creating videogames since the birth of the industry, yet their stories are often dismissed as "outsider" perspectives. In The Only Woman in the Room," hear some of the most talented and experienced women in game development talk about their experiences making games. From their passion for the projects they help create, to the terrifying hostility some have faced form the very fans that play their games, learn what it is like to be a woman in this very male-dominated field. Encouraging but not starry-eyed, The Only Woman in the Room tells aspiring female game developers what to expect in interviews, pitch meetings, review sessions and forum posting, and remind everyone that as bad as it can get, the industry is full of passionate women who still find game development their #1 reason to be.
