Blue-Skinned Space Babes & the Triple Goddess in Mass Effect

This session examines how the original Mass Effect trilogy’s writers built on the traditional Triple Goddess paradigm and the green-(or in this case, blue-)skinned space babe trope to design the empowered monogender Asari. Through the prioritization of such vital features as consent and layered portrayals of female sexuality, attendees will learn how to create more dynamic female characters, which in turn help create a more immersive game world with broader appeal.
