Women in Games History collection

Women in Games

Cover of Memory Insufficient issue one with copperplate print of pirate Anne Bonny

Last month I asked for submissions for a collection of essays on women’s history in games. That collection is now ready! Check it out. It includes a follow-up essay by Samantha Allen after her great Border House post about female characters in games, as well as essays on women in arcades in the early 1980s and adventure game developer Roberta Williams.

I plan to make this a regular thing, at least for a little while. So to that end, please do check out the call for submissions at the end of this latest issue. The next issue will be about Asian Histories in Games, and my goal is to get at least seven essays by May 15th.
