In the recent times, there has been a lot of discussion around diversity, technology, and game development. Critics discuss the scarcity of women, people of color, and many others who are seldom represented among the creators in this great industry of ours. Rarely do we discuss those who are actually working in the industry. We are unseen. We are unknown. I wanted to create a website that will change that. We do exist. We should be celebrated. Thus the creation of website www.wearegamedevs.com.

I’ve been working hard over the past few months to bring the site to life. I'm extremely happy to launch today so that you and the others can enjoy the featured people within. I've learned a lot and I hope to continue to bring the journey and experiences of these wonderful people to many others.

I would be extremely grateful if you share this website within your social networks. If you know of anyone who you feel should be featured on the website, please do not hesitate to send an email to wearegamedevs@gmail.com. #wearegamedevs

To person who won't care to read this,

There has been a lot of violence against African Americans in the news as of late. Many of my friends have noticed and posted articles or some pithy Jon Stewart segment to enlighten others of this plight. They preface each with their views and admonishment of such heinous acts. They speak of the prevalence of systemic racism that still exists in America. Then a friend will comment about how they agree. Or how could anyone who is in their right mind think such a way.

All this is good. It should continue. It gives like minded people a place to vent their frustration, fears, and anger. We can console each through our misery and pain.

However, I ask who is reading these posts? Who is reading this news and finding it deplorable? The enlightened. Those who have a bit of concern for their fellow man. Those who look for injustice. Those who the injustice will ultimately affect. It falls to those of use who care.
I am certain there are those who saw Charleston Shooting in their feed and scrolled right past it. There are those who saw black teens abused by police at a pool party and immediately liked some cat video. And the more likely scenario is there are many more who never saw any of these headlines. Their lives are blessed with the privilege of ignorance. I had a coworker who didn't know who Trayvon Martin was. This is the world we live in. These people will never read this.

It is obvious there are those who have never met someone Black. There are those who understand African American culture through the eyes of the media and not through the eyes of a Black person they know. Some, like Dylan Roof, exist because of some others feel hate and racism don't exist. They feel like murder and vicious intolerance are not in the realm of possibility. Unfortunately, they are wrong.
Nothing will change until the people who won't read this will reach out to discuss the problems of our community openly and without fear. It is those who will never worry about police brutality and other injustices that need to know of their existence. If someone yells racism or prejudice, and no one wants to listen, ignorance still makes a sound.

In an attempt to change the dynamic I want to do something different. For those who won't read this, I want you to know I'm open to discussing the challenges of race on our society. I am not the authority nor will I'll claim to speak for all people of color. Until we start a conversation we will continue with the same cycle of blame, anger, and misunderstanding. This cycle is killing Black people. This cycle is murdering our community. This cycle is a cancer in our society.

Let's be the change we want to see. Change to action. I hope someone will take me up on this, but let's be real, the person we need to reach will never read this.

It's cute, but even with the cheats in the browser console, it is very difficult to get through some stages.

One thing you definitely need to know: eating candies increases your HP.

I liked it a lot and am very much looking forward to the sequel that seems to be in the works.

Brilliant.
 
Paramount Pictures has had a lot of success in the past. They are a large company and they have a lot of money. For this reason, fans of the distributor know that their newest movie is sure to be good. World War Z is that newest movie. The camera never falls over during a scene.
