If you’re going to be at PAX Unplugged, come swing by the Designing Asian Settings and Themes in Games panel that I’ll be on! It’s on Friday from 12:00-1:00pm in the Leviathan Theatre. The description in the program is:
Are you interested in how Asian cultures can inspire games and game design? Are you curious about Asian portrayal in games? Join us for a panel discussion about these topics as experienced Asian TTRPG, LARP, and board game designers discuss cultural and historical themes. We will talk through examples that we’ve seen, the differences between Asian American and overseas Asian perspectives, and the impact of thoughtful representation and why it matters.
I’ll be joining MingYang Lu, Banana Chan, Sharang Biswas, Victoria Cana, and James Mendez Hodes for this one.
