It’s my goal to inspire and give strength to girls and boys alike, from all walks of life.

It’s my goal to inspire and give strength to girls and boys alike, from all walks of life

Despite the enormous diversity of settings and stories in gaming, an area in which the industry is severely lacking is the representation of women. Both female protagonists and supporting characters are reduced to roles that portray them as weak, in need of saving, or partakes as ‘healer’.

The concept of Maiden’s Voyage was created to help challenge this unbalanced representation and create an entertaining, thoroughly interactive gaming experience. The player takes on the role of three strong individuals, each with different ages and coming from vastly different backgrounds, with their own human centered stories to unfold in an action-packed fantasy world. It’s my goal to inspire and give strength to girls and boys alike, from all walks of life.
