WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH – WHAT CAN BE DONE
Women have been fighting this fight for generations, and the sad truth is that it cannot be done without the help of men. We need men to be allies. This article covers how to be an ally in gaming, but it’s true for life in general.
But, with or without the help of men, women will continue to fight and carve out spaces to uplift and support one another. With the help of two colleagues, we are now going to show two of these spaces!
First we have Project Asian Representation, created and co-funded by Marion Mỹ Anh Baxerres, Global Community and Social Media Manager at Prime Matter / PLAION.

- 📝 Personal – The Asian Women Representation in For Honor
April 2nd, 2021
The representation of Asian people and the representation of women are both vast and complex topics to explore.
Working on the game For Honor when I wrote this article, a year and a half ago, I found in the Samurai and Wu Lin factions a representation of Asian women that I liked. I reached out to other Asian women that I knew were also working on the game at that time: Elise Trinh (Writer), Klarissa Armada (Product Manager) and Elisa Choi (Community Developer). We all have different descents or origins and have been raised in different countries, so comparing their opinions to mine was interesting. The article dives into how Asian women characters have been represented in video games, specifically on For Honor.

- 🔥 Immortals Fenyx Rising – Myths of the Eastern Realm
March 25th, 2021
An epic story
The story takes direct inspiration from a well-known Chinese myth called “Nuwa Mends the Heavens,” telling the story of how the goddess Nuwa looks for a way to fix the fractured sky following a disastrous war. The player assumes the role of a new hero named Ku, the last remaining human, as he embarks on a quest to help Nuwa restore life to Heaven and Earth by patching up the broken sky.
In Immortals Fenyx Rising – Myths of the Eastern Realm, we focused on the journey of self-discovery as well as themes of duty and sacrifice, regarding how Ku and the gods view themselves before and after the sky fractured.
