Girls being the majority is very unusual in the hardcore gaming world. In fact, the video game industry is dominated by titles that are meant for boys - that's not to say that girls don't play them, but they are made with boys in mind. The girls who do play the shooting games and fighting games often have to deal with the stereotypes of women that are upsetting. Yet, they solider on and continue to play these games because they love them and not as a result of what anyone else says or thinks of their choices.
Her Interactive makes games for players of all ages and genders. We message that we make "games for girls" because there aren't enough games out there that are designed with girls in mind. Girls should have great games too!
We conducted research to try to understand what girls in general would want from a game when we first started making the Nancy Drew games and evolved our mission from there. While the play preferences of girls differs somewhat from the play preferences of boys, we don't design games that only girls will like. We hope the EVERYONE will like our games, and we give kudos to the boys who are willing to go against stereotypes to play our games. Very few boys are willing to give our games a chance, simply based on the fact that Nancy Drew is traditionally a character loved by girls. They often think - it's a Nancy Drew game, so it must be girly. The games aren't 'girly' in the pink, Barbie sense, and at the end of day - it's a good game that anyone can play.
This belief extends to all aspects of our business, including the message board and website. With the recent the message board and website redesigns, we chose a tone (color and layout) that could convey our ideal and goals in the best manner. We created our website to appeal the customers who are most likely to play the Nancy Drew games. You may question whether women and girls like burgundy more than the original teal - well, we don't really know that answer, but in order to convey what Her Interactive represents, burgundy is a good way of saying "Feminine and mysterious, but not too girly."
The title of our website serves a similar purpose. "Mystery, Fun, Inspiring Games for Girls of All Ages" is for the search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo. It makes it easier for people who are looking for games for a girl to find us since they might not know that Nancy Drew games exist. But it also helps us make a specific distinction; we offer games for girls. There are many sites out there catering towards boys and boy-culture, and we, in our own way are trying to show women that they too have a place to find their passion.
Lastly, Warnings at Waverly Academy (box games available now or preorder the download exclusively at Her Interactive) takes place at an all-girls school. Although there are no animated male characters in the game, the boys definitely still play a role in the story. The theme of the game might make boys less interested in playing it, but we can definitely guarantee the same suspense and mystery youâ€™d find in all of our other games. And thatâ€™s something that appeals to everyone!
