Hello all! My name is Anna, better known as gunthera1 online, and I am really excited to join The Border House as one of the writers.
I am a cisgendered, temporarily able-bodied, white, lesbian female. I was born in Poland but was raised primarily in the United States. Apart from gaming, I love cooking, reading science fiction/fantasy, cross-stitching, and just hanging out at home with my long term partner and our cats.
I have been a gamer since the mid 1980s. My first gaming experiences were on the Commodore 64, including JumpMan, Aztec Challenge, Dig Dug, and Ghouls and Ghosts. I spent the majority of high school and college playing PC adventure games. I played a lot of Robert Williams games (King’s Quest series and Lara Bow) and also really enjoyed the Quest for Glory games. Eventually I moved into console gaming and mainly play Role Playing Games. You can see my game collection on my backloggery page.
My main focuses on the site will be dealing with LGBT and female inclusion and representation in gaming. I am also interested in accessibility of games for deaf and hard of hearing individuals and gamers with visual impairments.
