Female game developers are an important part of the game industry! Women have an active and substantial role in not just indie games, but AAA titles as well, including some extremely well-known games. We're joined by Thom Knight from Three Extra Lives to take in some trivia before chatting about women in game dev.
First things first, as Thom is a trivia and indie game buff, he sets hosts Monika and Amanda a tough challenge. Do we know our female video game characters? The answer may surprise you! Or.... maybe it won't. We'll see!
