10 Games Created by Women in the Video Game World

Gone are the days when the gaming industry was a full men’s club, and we encounter many games that have made an impact in the industry, where the efforts of female game developers, who are the apple of the eye of the industry, finally sprout.

Here are 10 great games shaped by the labor of women:

Centipede (1980) : Donna Bailey

After designing a self-developed game called Narbacular Drop, which also uses Portal-based mechanics, Kim Swift formed a team to develop Portal. Swift has also worked on Left 4 Dead, Half-Life 2, and Star Wars Battlefront II.

Portal is recommended as a great game for video game beginners. This fun puzzle-platformer is built around a story element and lots of humor. In the game, the player has to manage a character named Chell and pass the puzzles he encounters by using the Portal weapon.

Portal is considered a classic among gamers. There have been many calls for a new Portal since the success of the first two, but no further steps have been taken yet that another game will be developed in this series.

Undiscovered series (2007): Amy Hennig

Amy Hennig is not new to the video game industry and has a considerable list of achievements in the field. He began working in video games in the late 1980s, and his most notable works include Legacy of Kain, Jak and Daxter, and the Uncharted series.

Hennig is the creator of the Uncharted series developed by Naughty Dog. The game series follows Nathan Drake, a treasure hunter who travels the world to uncover various historical mysteries.

As the Uncharted series is exclusive to the PlayStation console, it is a crucial cornerstone in the success of the Playstation.

The game has been incredibly successful since its release. The Uncharted series has sold over 40 million copies, making it one of the best-selling video game franchises of all time.

BioShock (2007) and BioShock 2 (2010): Alyssa Finley

Alyssa Finley worked as project leader and executive producer on BioShock and Bioshock 2. According to Mobygames.com, he is also working on a number of other games, including The Walking Dead, Tales from the Borderlands, and Minecraft: Story mode.

BioShock is one of the popular game series. When the original BioShock was first released, IGN described it as an ‘essential gaming experience’ and rated it 9.7/10.

At a time when many games were simply moving online or creating MMOs (Massively multiplayer online) that required team play, BioShock was one of the few games that stayed true to the ultimate gaming experience, which was a combination of great game mechanics and challenging gameplay. With a strong story, this game was appreciated for its ability to appeal to players who want a single player experience.

Every detail of BioShock has been carefully crafted and planned to surprise players, from the mundane things that players can find something from real life and themselves, like the guitar in a room.

The Journey (2012): Robin Hunicke

Robin Hunicke, who was first hired by Electronic Arts to work on games such as MySims and Boom Blox, later moved to the game company Journey produced.

Journey is an online cooperative game originally made for the PlayStation 3. The game has also been ported to PlayStation 4, PC and iOS. Throughout the game, other players can join each other on their journey, but no form of communication can be used. Players remain anonymous until the game’s credits run out.

Journey won ‘game of the year’ awards in several different areas and was critically acclaimed in the year it was released. The game is available on Steam and on PS3, PS4 and PS5, but Sony warns that playing on PS5 may not have some features on other platforms.

Tomb Raider (2013) and Rise of the Tomb Raider (2016): Rhianna Pratchett

Tomb Raider (2013) ve Rise of the Tomb Raider (2016): Rhianna Pratchett

Tomb Raider is known as one of the best heroine games on the market. Rhianna Pratchett was the lead author of Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider, and she has won a number of awards for her outstanding skills. It earned Outstanding Achievement in Video Game Writing at the 68th Writers Guild of America Awards in 2016 and Outstanding Character in Character for Lara Croft at the 19th annual DICE Awards that same year.

The 2013 Tomb Raider breathed new life into old games from the late 90’s. Tomb Raider has done a great job of translating a game that focuses more on Lara Croft’s sexyness and transforming her into someone young women can admire.

Child of the Light (2014): Mélisa Cazzaro and Aurélie Débant

Principal designers Mélisa Cazzaro and Aurélie Débant created this popular RPG platform game to critical acclaim. Many fans of the game especially love its visuals, music and story.

Child of Light is a game based on the kingdom of Lemuria in 1895. A Princess named Aurora is born from a Duke and his wife. Aurora’s mother dies and her father remarries, and on Easter Eve Aurora seemingly dies, which sends her father into deep, dark despair and becomes bedridden. The story takes Aurora on a quest to free the Lady of the Forest, armed with a sword and the light of the land she has awakened.

This side scrolling game comes with some role-playing elements like leveling up as the character progresses. Enemy battles are reminiscent of the Final Fantasy series, where the player can control up to two characters during battle and replace those two with waiting characters. Up to three enemies spawn for each battle.

City Landscape (2015): Karoliina Korppoo

Karoliina Korppoo served as one of the game’s chief designers, along with Henri Haimakainen and Miska Fredman. Finn is the first woman to publish a role-playing game. Currently, Korppoo runs his own company, 10th Muse, which publishes an app called Sana Stories that celebrates equality and diversity through a series of interactive text-only stories.

Inspired by the popular classic game SimCity, Cities Skylines is a fun and addictive game where players are tasked with building a city. The game is one of the names mentioned and we know that it has sold more than 6 million copies worldwide.

Players are tasked with building a city, and as the city grows, new buildings, regions and policies are added to the game to increase its complexity. Players must manage their taxes, cash reserves and the happiness of their citizens to keep the city afloat. Mismanagement of the slightest thing can lead the city to collapse.

Niche: A Genetics Survival Game (2016): Philomena Schwab

In Niche, a simulation video game designed by Philomena Schwab, our goal is to breed certain traits or genes in a group of dog or cat creatures and keep them alive in order to genetically perfect our character’s environment. Schwab also founded Playful Oasis, a collective of 25 international developers promoting games about nature and biology.

Niche is a game that enables evolving genetics and living things to evolve based on real genetics. The goal is to keep your species alive despite predators, climate change and disease. In this turn-based game, players are tasked with shaping their own creatures and keeping their species alive based on real genetics. If a species goes extinct, the game is over and the player loses.

The pond has over 100 genes to shape a species, five different biomes with diverse flora, prey and predators, and a vibrant, dynamic world that is constantly changing. The game can be purchased on Steam and Nintendo Switch.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons (2020): Aya Kyogoku

Aya Kyogoku was the first woman to direct a video game in the Nintendo Entertainment Analysis & Development group with Animal Crossing: New Leaf. She directed the game and, after realizing she was the only woman on the development team, hired a half-female team with New Leaf producer Katsuya Eguchi and encouraged everyone to contribute ideas for the game, regardless of role.

With COVID-19 ravaging the world when it came time to present Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Nintendo drew the world’s attention to the reality in New Horizons, and it’s still one of the most popular Nintendo games to date.
