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.
