Hey, did ya’ll know that now if you want to look for games that have female protagonists that there’s a tag for that on Steam? There are 121 games that the community has marked with the Female Protagonist tag on Steam.


121. That’s it. Compared to the 3,000 or so other games on Steam. And yes, some of the games that are marked with female protag have character selections that allow you to choose either gender. I will let you draw your own conclusions.



Earlier this year Zora Ball was your average 1st grader until she decided to create and develop a mobile video game app, making her the youngest person to ever do so. At just 7-years old Zora managed to learn a programming language called “Bootstrap” that is normally used to teach kids ages 12 through 16 the different concepts of Algebra by using video games. Her teachers and family were astonished by her accomplishment. 

She was invited to an expo at the University of Penn where she was put on the spot and asked to reconfigure the app in front of everyone to prove that it was her that developed the mobile app in the first place and not her older brother who is a scholar student. Zora successfully did so and got rid of any doubt that anyone had. 
Zora Ball is now referred to a young prodigy with an extremely bright future in technology and computer science. Young Zora is an example of Black Excellence not having an age requirement.

I am so so so excited for this game by Double Fine. It’s an adventure game, something you just don’t encounter these days anymore. Watch the trailer, get hyped!!

Pre-order on Steam!

This is that Double Fine Adventure that everyone’s been so butthurt / hyped over. It’s one of the most successful Kickstarters of all time, and was heavily criticized for needing more money after the Kickstarter ended. People don’t really understand how expensive games are to make, especially ones of this scale, but yaknow…

Hey all, I know I don’t update this blog as often as I’d like, but I want to point you all to a fantastic YouTuber named Nick AKA RockLeeSmile who does episodes every day for a series called “Indie Impressions” where he covers different indie games that he finds all over the internet. He has quickly become one of my very favorite personalities on YouTube. This episode in particular struck me as something very special and I wanted to share it with you and encourage you to go watch more of his videos. You can also search his videos by many different criteria on his website Indie-Impressions

A video from Boogie on Youtube’s upcoming policy changes.
