Since its release in 2013, New Leaf has sold 7.38 million copies worldwide, and is credited by Nintendo with helping the handheld 3DS system reach 42.74 million units sold. It also boasts another striking statistic: Nearly half of the Animal Crossing: New Leaf game development team was female. And according to Eguchi and Kyogoku, the two are far from unrelated. Indeed, they believe that the diversity of their team was crucial to their game’s success.
“When I first started [at Nintendo], it wasn’t uncommon to be the only woman on the entire team,” said Kyogoku during the recent Game Developers Conference.
The approach to Animal Crossing was different. Not only did they want to make the game for both men and women; they wanted it to be made by men and women. As obvious as it might sound, it’s an atypical approach on both counts. Perhaps it’s not as surprising from Nintendo, a company that has often been willing to buck the conventional wisdom about games. The success of New Leaf proved revelatory to both Eguchi and Nintendo’s CEO Satoru Iwata.
Aya Kyogoku, who was the first female director at Nintendo’s Entertainment Analysis and Development group, emphasizes that she always felt welcome there. But, she says, working with a team made up of half men and half women was a revelation.
“Having worked on this team where there were almost equal numbers of men and women made me realize that [diversity] can open you up to hearing a greater variety of ideas and sharing a greater diversity of ideas,” she told WIRED. “Only after having working on a project like this, with a team like this one, was I able to realize this.”
The evolution of girl gamers
Boy gamers are so self-centered they act as though women haven’t been playing video games for decades, and then act horrified when the female gamers who have always been there actually become visible and vocal about the rampant misogyny that has infected the gaming world.
Like seriously, how entitled do you have to be that women saying “it sure would be nice if I wasn’t treated like shit while enjoying the games I play” translates to “I must be catered to” when video games have LITERALLY been catered to men for decades?
I didn’t get all the dates, but I think you can get the point.
Also considered posting my own personal gaming history, but I would’ve had to go back to the 80s for that. e_e
I'm getting the impression you're one of those dudes that pretend to like video games and shit to give yourself an edge or personality beyond your looks, nothing to see here people
I made a fort so I don’t have to read this bullshit
Okay that took forever, I’m sorry. Here’s the tutorial on how I made my Journey costume! I’ve included a photoset of the tutorial, and below are the links that will take you to the pattern PDFs (the first is a 24 x 36 file, so happy print tiling!). For Illustrator-savvy folks, you can also dive into the pattern files and manipulate them yourselves.
Side note: I am not a professional seamstress/fashion designer, so I’m sorry if there’s inaccuracies or errors or dubious advice, it’s more of a step by step of how I did it with helpful patterns!
Any questions, use the Ask box, also! I’m happy to offer any help or advice! And I’m sorry, but I do not take commissions!
If you have problems downloading, let me know! Don’t abuse my bandwidth, plz
EDIT: A lot of people have been having sizing troubles with the hood lately, not sure if it’s just the new file I uploaded or not because I can’t pinpoint why. So everyone MAKE SURE to test it on paper then scrap fabric FIRST before you cut into the fabric you are using!
