Creating video games with a social purpose
There's a new video game out there called Assembling Rosie which explores the perpetuation of stereotypes related to women and their life choices. It was created during Critical Hit Montreal, a 10-week summer gaming program that is wrapping up at Concordia University this week.
Critical Hit offers the opportunity to students and aspiring video game creators to develop innovative experimental games, motivated by contemporary social, cultural and political concerns.
I spoke with members of the team behind "Assembling Rosie". Charlotte Fisher and Jessica Marcotte were in our Montreal studios yesterday.
