The second episode of FEMI5, the five-minute FEMICOM podcast, is now available. This episode covers notable Barbie computer playsets of the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, and ’00s.
In other FEMICOM news, the second FEMICOM game jam dates have been announced as August 14 through September 6, 2015. The theme of this jam will be announced on August 10, so check back then for the big reveal!
The first FEMICOM game jam has come to a close! Participants had three weeks to create a game inspired by the 1990s CD-ROM games of Theresa Duncan: Chop Suey, Smarty, and Zero Zero. You can play all twelve of the game jam submissions by following this link. Thanks to all who participated in this jam!
Good news: FEMICOM Museum now has a blog! The FEMICOM blog aims to keep you up to date on FEMICOM content, events, and all that’s good in girly retrogaming, toy collecting, homebrew/indie dev, and game history. I’ll also be posting my personal reflections on art and design, toys and games, gender, technology, and education. I can’t promise that the blog won’t deviate from time to time into the ancillary worlds of comics, music, and crafts, but I do hope you’ll enjoy reading nonetheless!
(P.S.: No need to obsessively refresh your browser: when new blog entries are posted, we’ll fire out a tweet from @FemicomMuseum.)
