    Interview: Jessica Pempek, Animator and Illustrator at Toy Studio

    This week the Women in Games Interview is the lovely and talented Jessica Pempek, from Toy Studio. I am happy to just let the ebullient Jess introduce herself! Well hello there! I’m Jess! I work as an animator and illustrator from the great city of Chicago. Don’t get me wrong… there are many drawbacks to Chicago; the weather, taxes and lack of parking to name a few. Thankfully I’m able to say I do what I love for a living and I’m always striving to get better at it. A few of my passions are: cartoons, drawing, animating silly things, pretending to be a photographer, shoes, Snoopy and, of course, my husband! I also like to change song lyrics, which tends to irritate most people, because they find themselves singing about badgers sitting in soup bowls after listening to one of my solos. I’m currently working for a company that

    Opinion: Can Video Games Make A Positive Change?

    We are living in the age of technology with 3D Televisions, the internet and, smart phones.  Gizmos, gadgets, electronics and social media are around every corner.  It’s kind of funny to imagine life without these things years ago.  One person can survive in the comfort of their home, never having to go out.  I’m not one to encourage hermitage, however I myself use almost all of these on a daily basis.  I’m still inclined to shop in a store versus shopping online, but that’s just me.  I have seen firsthand how gaming can bring positive changes in one’s life despite the years of negativity towards games. Through twitter, I have found GamingAngels.  The staff has embraced me as one of their own and in the months I have been working with them, have found a nice little family.  Although we are spread out across the nation, gaming, social media & the

    Interview: Quinn Dunki of One Girl One Laptop

    Quinn Dunki, code writer, game developer, mobile enthusiast, and not just mobile gaming gives us this interview today. She has worked on Trucks and Skulls for iOS with Appy Entertainment lately. Quinn is the founder of her own company, One Girl One Laptop. Geek Woman: I was told that you are a code Goddess. What is code and what do you do with it? (yes this question might sound stupid, but there are people who don’t know ;)) Quinn Dunki: Well, “writing code” is shorthand for computer programming. It’s basically just text in an editor with a bunch of syntax rules that allow the computer to convert (“compile”) it into a binary format that it can execute. That’s the really short explanation. The long explanation… well…  there’s a reason people go to university for four years to learn this stuff.  Seriously though, there’s no magic to it. The great thing

    Ellen’s Know or Go App

    The new Ellen Show game called No or Go is a hoot. It is a trivia game that tests your knowledge of general information. The categories include Movies and Music, Geography, History, Pop Culture and random stuff. You have to know your Ellen show references as well. The App has questions ranging from Easy, Medium and Hard. The levels progress the more you answer correctly. You can select a female or male avatar to play as. You can also customize your character by putting in your own photo for your face. Then you can pick clothing and skin tone. I have seen console games with character customizations that don’t match the capabilities of this little App. As long as you get the answers right, you are fine. But when you get it wrong, your character falls down a hole, just like on the show. You are given Life Savers, which

    PopCap’s Edgy & Creative Spawn

    PopCap Games today announced the launching of a new creative outlet for their developers and designers. It’s a smaller games company which takes its name from the intersection where PopCap HQ stands, 4th & Battery. “4th & Battery is a pressure valve intended to keep our heads from exploding,” explained Ed Allard, Executive Vice President of Studios at PopCap. “The PopCap brand has become closely associated with ultra-high quality, polish and attention to detail — which is a great thing. But our standard game development process is therefore long and involved, and doesn’t really accommodate all of the creativity pumping through our collective veins. 4th & Battery gives us a way to quickly try really strange or marginal ideas, and to give our designers a safe area to hone their chops.” Not to mention giving the fans a fun, fresh way to appreciate the talent and potential talent stewing in

    Interview: Lesley Yuen, Bar Star Intern

    Lesley Yuen was an intern at GlitchSoft during the production of our game, Bar Star. The iOS game which was aimed towards the 18-24 year old female demographic was the project she worked on. Lesley’s insight and contributions to the game were invaluable to the small development team. As an intern, she contributed to the games writing and scripting. She was responsible for all of the pop culture references that are found in Bar Star. She was also integral in identifying phrases and celebrities that would resonate with 18-24 year old females. These features were a major factor of Bar Star’s success. Lesley also handled a considerable amount of marketing activity surrounding Bar Star including the management of the game’s online presence, review submissions, and social media communities on Facebook and Twitter. Geek Woman: Where do you go to school? Lesley Yuen: I go to Carleton University in Ottawa and
