Overview As the indie game space continues to grow and the discussion about increasing the focus on diversity in games also continues, there is still a decided lack of overlap for a number of reasons; this talk aims to bridge that. If you've ever wondered "Am I doing this right?" or "How do I add diverse ethnic groups without pandering" or even "How will adding diverse characters to my game actually affect it?", then this talk is for you.
