    Girl Scouts of LA gets video game patch

    I am so excited to be writing about this announcement! At GamingAngels, we have volunteered with many groups to encourage young girls to explore STEM careers. While the Boy Scouts have a technology badge, the Girl Scouts never have, until now. Women in Games International is working with Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles to create the first video game patch for Girl Scouts. WIGI hopes that the partnership will end up creating a nationally recognized badge for the Girl Scouts The patch will use Gamestar Mechanic, which is a development tool used for the National STEM Video Game Challenge.

    Video Game Design camps double across US

    Parents everywhere are starting to look into where they send their son or daughter to summer camp. It’s a summer ritual, but it looks like instead of camps focused on archery, or swimming, more and more camps are focusing on science and math. The ESA sent a press release stating that this summer over 690 summer programs will be offered in video game design! That is amazing! The number has more than doubled since 2012. This is great news for the gaming industry as it can work to help interest kids to a career in the game industry and bring new and innovative ideas with them. “The increase in video game design summer programs reflects parents’ growing recognition of video games’ potential to excite kids about educational concepts,” said Rich Taylor, senior vice president for communications and industry affairs at ESA. “These programs not only offer students a fun opportunity

    Inspired by Indie Game: The Movie

    Up until recently, I’ve been quite uninspired by the video game industry. The constant sequels, the constant fan complaints, and the community/industry gender battles grew tiresome. I was worn out. Something I once loved had become a chore. The community became flooded with noise and nothing seemed to be changing. I have been running GamingAngels for nine/ten years and sometimes it feels like nothing has changed. We have the same online arguments. Games that might be innovative are shelved for “proven” franchises and studios are in jeopardy of closing constantly. One day while pumping, I came across Indie Game: The Movie on Netflix. The movie came out in 2012 and follows independent game developers on their journey to release. We see their excitement, innovation, and sometimes depression. These guys (more on that in a bit), pour their heart and being into their game. And why? For self satisfaction. The movie
