Very interesting and mature interview.

The Genesis system had better games than the Nintendo system. They just were not flashy.
I didn't realize that Nintendo made a conscious effort to appeal to males more.


Their is inherent sexism in gaming.
It must end.

Very nice.

Kestrel seems like a nice, intelligent person, and I like her work a lot. Why isn't she lead dev? She'd do a pretty good job, IMHO.

My official eternal issue: Why no muscle definition slider? Let's have some equal-opportunity sexiness, Cryptic!
PWE: NO to mandatory ARC! At least make it optional!

Because

Here's the story,
Of a man named Smirky,
Who was busy with three toons of his own.
They were four men,
Living all together, but they were all alone.

Till the one day when the Taco met this Gecko,
and they knew they was much more than a hunch.
That this group,
Must somehow form a family.
That's the way we all became the Cryptic Bunch,

Did the interview go along the lines of what they would like to do but will never be allowed to do? lol

damn that was a really good interview. really appreciate the work you ladies do to help keep the game gender balanced! really helps the immersion by keeping it a bit more canon and more open to the diverse fandom that plays this game.
