fucking papi is going to tell everyone how thirsty i am
"The drama surrounds artist and designer Dina Abou Karam, the new community manager for the Kickstarter-funded indie game Mighty No. 9. She backed the project and created a piece of fan art depicting Beck—a protagonist with a striking resemblance to Mega Man—as female. Who was this woman, and why was she reimagining the main character in Mighty No. 9 as female? Did she have an agenda?
Some backers dove into her social media history, and they didn’t like what they found.
In tweets that have now been deleted, Abou Karam supported feminist ideals and allegedly admitted to having never played a Mega Man game in her life. She also linked to a video of Anita Sarkeesian, who faced sexist trolling after she successfully launched a Kickstarter to fund a Web series on sexism in games.”
*face-palming over here*
Total Misrepresentation of the issue and the problems backers had with her. No mention of her lack of qualifications, her unprofesional conduct, her complete lack of intrest in anything megaman before this project, or that she got the job because her friends are on the team and her appointment is Blatent Cronyism.
There are other women on the team with actual influence. No one is complaining that Manami Matsumae is on the team in a key role as the game’s Music composer. No one is complaining about the woman in 8-4 LTD’s studio who are also involved on community management. Because these women are Qualified professionals and industry veterans.
Those are the issues that are discussed in the backer exclusive forums that she oversees. Anything that says otherwise is clickbait and/or trolling.
