How It Started

After the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, I started getting into playing pc games to socialize and spend time with my friends. My passion for video games and my curiosity regarding my experiences as a female gamer drove me to base my thesis on the research question “How has the shifts and development of the gaming industry contributed to a culture of toxicity and sexism within online gaming? How can I, as a designer, help empower and build a safe space for women in competitive online games?” As a result of my research, I decided to create a digital solution for a digital problem.
