Something has to change. I have 3 games to get out the door–Revolution 60 PC, which is almost done, Cupcake Crisis and Project: Gogo. My team needs me leading them, not fighting Gamergate.
I’m not sure what the answer is. I might start a Patreon for an assistant to help with all these Gamergate tasks. I might just start doing less. But, I do know I’m going to lead GSX more this week and fight Gamergate less.
I got into the game industry to make games. And it’s time for me to get back to it.
Only, for Brianna Wu and some others it’s way more difficult to get back to work so if it comes down to Patreon assistance, count me in.
Also, Brianna Wu:
If I were being honest—I’m more than a little resentful. The vast majority of our male-dominated games press wrote a single piece condemning Gamergate and has been radio silent ever since. The publishers are silent, the console makers are silent. And so, Anita, Zoe, Randi and myself are out here doing the majority of the work, while everyone whines about wanting it to be over.
Meanwhile, the rest of the industry is doing what they do best, which is nothing.
