The world of videogames is packed full of stories featuring men. It’s a fact that this has been going on for decades but fortunately, little by little, things have finally begun to change, mature, and evolve. We need more women being featured in video games (and programming, illustrating, and production, too). This is why we’ve put together a list of 50 games featuring female characters. Who knows, maybe next year we can make a list of 100 games. And with any luck, this type of list won’t even be necessary in a few years.

Legend of Solgard

We’re not going to lie … we really like Nordic mythology. The surprising thing about  Legend of Solgard though, is that it’s a game from King (the creator of Candy Crush) that’s incredibly different from the products we’re used to seeing. This game is a hodgepodge of genres that come together in a sort of tactical RPG with a lot of depth. Just take a look at its gameplay to see what we’re talking about. [Download]

DEUL

The mobile world is full of works that take the minimalist path.
