Posted on by HB Duran

We met with with Bolder Games Producer, Devin Edgerton, who explains why their indie game studio has taken such an interest in the message of “more women in game development.”

Founded in 2012, this small team of indie developers are serious about including women in their industry, but also making great games.

When we think we’ve landed on a really great idea for a game, we think on it and rethink it,” the studio says on its official website, “Sometimes scrapping it entirely or reworking it until it’s a shadow of its initial self—until it’s smarter, better, bolder and more fun than we ever thought it could be. Our litmus test is simple: with all the amazing games out there, would we actually play this one if no one were looking? If the answers isn’t a resounding ‘hell yes,’ it’s back to more hard work, late nights, and lukewarm takeout.”
