The gaming industry has traditionally been male-dominated. This has been the reason for Girl Gamer Galaxy in the past to start their platform. We connect female gamers in a male-dominated industry. This male domination has influenced the types of games and characters that are created. However, evidence suggests that more women are playing games with female protagonists than ever before. According to a 2019 report by the Entertainment Software Association, women make up 46% of the gaming population in the United States. This suggests that there is a significant and growing market for games with female protagonists. In this article, we will explore why and give you some titles of popular games with female protagonists for you to explore.
It’s autumn again and for GGG that means that we are heading to ‘de Jaarbeurs’. A well-known event building in Utrecht where gamers gather every year to visit gaming events. Somehow they manage to always organize these events around this time of year. But this year was special. It was the very first-time Gameforce was being held in Utrecht, or even in the Netherlands. So we were excited to check it out! During our visit, a small stall called La Fem Art immediately caught our eye. Femke, the digital designer behind the stand, who is also an illustrator and fantasy nerd was selling her fantastic art! We were all in love with her beautiful prints and stickers, all about strong female characters and with a charming vintage style. We couldn’t leave empty-handed and spend some of our gold on some must-have stickers for our journals.
