At the GW2 pax party. I can’t believe the cake they got.
Okay, Tumblr, let’s make this go viral. You all know that representation in the media is desperately needed, and this game is delivering what many of the big-name games haven’t. Pumpkin Online is made by a development team headed by an African-American woman and they’re aiming to make this game as inclusive and friendly as possible. This is a farming/romance sim mixed up with an adventure MMORPG and made incredibly diverse.
You want to play a non-binary character? You got it! You want a range of races in your NPC neighbors? Done! Clothing choices and body features not restricted by gender? It’s in there! Relationships in no way affected by gender or lack of gender? Yes, that too!
Let’s get this thing going viral and help promote the Kickstarter (link in the article) so that everyone gets the chance to play the character they want to play. Reblog buttons, do your thing!
YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO YOU GUYYYYSSSSSSSSSSSS
Havest Moon-esque MMO where you can be any gender (or lack thereof) or race and the game doesn’t turn your f/f relationship into a bullshit “friendship” instead of a marriage?
THIS IS LITERALLY EVERYTHING I HAVE EVER WANTED OUT OF A VIDEO GAME
WOAH WOAH I NEED THIS
WE ALL NEED THIS
re: outing yourself as a woman by simply saying some words on vent
I consider myself incredibly lucky to have started out on LotRO. It took me a while to work up the nerve to participate in conversations on vent for no reason other than I’m shy. Back then, it didn’t even occur to me that I would be treated differently if I revealed my gender because what did it even matter? I never once felt like I had to be guarded around complete strangers or my guildmates, I never worried that someone might twist my words into some really pathetic attempt at innuendo, I voiced my opinion freely without fear of being told to get back in the kitchen. I wasn’t even aware of the dudebro culture or that elsewhere women were afraid to even use female avatars least they be targeted and harassed. I was treated with respect, as if I was—somehow—a normal human being.
Once I moved away from LotRO, and started playing GW2, THAT was when I realized what a huge fucking risk I was taking each time I joined a new guild and said hello on vent. It was during a HotW run that I first heard “You’re really good for a girl” from a guy who truly believed he was paying me a huge compliment, and was genuinely confused when I called him out. It was during a fractal pug that I experienced random men joking about rape, and when I dropped group saying I refused to play with anyone who thought that shit was funny, one of them spent the next few minutes spamming “rape” at me in whispers and told me I must have some reason for disliking it so much. That still to this day enrages me to even think about. What the fuck.
The fact that my initial experience with LotRO was a fluke and not a typical occurrence is so, so disgusting.
Raider: Are you a girl or a 14 year old boy?
Girl gamer: I’m a 14 year old boy.
Girl gamer is left alone for the rest of the pug.
When someone unironically says “haha girls don’t play WoW!” what they’re really saying is, “I make all the women I encounter in-game so uncomfortable they prefer to remain invisible to me and I don’t even know it.”
