Trans Day of Visibility Stream!

Learn how to incorporate a broad variety of gender identities into your games with insight from the Hunt: Showdown narrative team.

Crytek and CRYENGINE were delighted to support the recent Trans Day of Visibility with a special stream broadcast live on Twitch with members of the Hunt: Showdown narrative team. In case you missed it live, you can check out the show below on YouTube.

The show is hosted by Junior Evangelist Roman Perezogin and Senior Manager for the CRYENGINE Ecosystem Gabriel Yakir Ketteler, and they are joined by Senior Narrative Designer Bárbara Framil and Narrative Designer Bri Williams from the Hunt: Showdown team. The show takes a deep dive into how the team incorporates a range of gender identities into Hunt: Showdown characters, and you'll pick up tips on how to widen the inclusivity of characters in your game too.

While playing through Hunt, the team discusses Viper, the first non-binary Legendary Hunter on Hunt's roster, and Sophia, an agender character. During the show, the team head into the Bayou with these two Hunters while discussing various topics and answering questions from viewers who tuned into the live broadcast. Topics include the historical research that goes into creating authentic Hunters and their gender identities, developing the character journey, environmental storytelling, and more.

This is a great show for anyone who wants to learn more about gender diversity in games, all while discovering more about the backstories and design of two of Hunt's most interesting Hunters.

You can get more awesome tips and tricks about how to approach narrative in your game from Bri and Bárbara in our recent Game Dev Tips series.

LOL what a joke

LOL Like You!

Garbage like this is one of the reasons why talented people don't want to work for Crytek anymore.

May 07, 2023 01:28

Nah, You're Just Inhuman and heartless, people like you and some other republicans are robots who can not feel anything! LOL.

We at Crytek are proud to have amazing talent among our ranks who are non-binary/transgender and we are happy to support them. Crytek has a no-harassment policy and will not tolerate discrimination against any human being based on their nationality, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Ok. Tell us about your heterosexual developers. Perhaps they have large and healthy families and they are passionate about games. Be tolerant to the end, we are interested, just like the news about the new version of the engine.

With all due respect, but it is not noticeable that Crytek also paid attention to national and religious days. Or are there no minorities who need support? I follow the news and so far I have only seen the celebration of such days. Why are people with special sexual preferences so special that they get so much attention? Where is at least one religious holiday? There are confessional minorities, there are national ones. Don't you have an international team working, after all? Or "This is different."? I just wish you to be fairer in your affairs. In general, I write reviews only to make the company better. Successful work, as always.

May 10, 2023 17:45

Your former employees and interns say otherwise.

Вы правы, явно кто-то уничтожает компанию изнутри. Отличный пример - это оптимизация сайта. Вес конкретно этой страницы 20-25 мб - CryTek, где вы нашли таких программистов или в этом виноват тот, кто устанавливает правила работы? То есть программисты не имеют возможности инициативы?
