Game designer Avery Alder opens this talk with a question: whose politics and experiences are we building our games around? After taking a look at the importance of queer representation in games, the talk explores why representation isn't enough. Avery points toward how game systems can be queered, with mechanics that reflect the politics and lived experiences of queer lives. Examples will be drawn from the past fifteen years of independent RPG design.
