Mariko, a.k.a. Gamerwife is a Montreal based geek lifestyle blogger. For her website she often interviews ladies who make video games. Dames Who Make Games, as she calls it, has featured many people from QA tester to company VP. I was very honored when she asked me to join this illustrious list of women creators. Here is a little intro to the interview. If you are interested in reading the full post, please visit her blog GAMERWIFE.
“This edition of Dames Who Make Games is a little different because my subject, the amazing Gina Haraszti considers herself primarily a film maker. However, through her work with the Technoculture, Art and Games Reasearch Center at Concordia University (a.k.a. TAG Lab), she found her way to games as a form of expression and has been a vital part of helping new comers and women feel welcome in the local independent game scene. Part of this mission includes co-founding and coordinating for GAMERella, a game jam especially for women and first time game makers that aims to lower the barrier to entry in game development and create a creative space where anyone interested in game development can participate, whatever their skills or experience.”
