Session Name:

Girl Games of the 1990s: A Retrospective


The girls' games of the 1990's were loved, hated, maligned and celebrated but ultimately they taught an entire generation of girls that games could be for them. Laura Groppe (Girl Games), Brenda Laurel (Purple Moon), Sheri Graner Ray (American Laser Games/Her Interactive) and Jesyca Durchin Schnepp (Mattel) will talk with about those times. They will talk about what it was like to produce those games at that time, what their direction and goals were, what they might have done differently, what effect those games had on the industry today and the state of girls and games today.
