Asians Represent!

Ep 1 – Orientalism

What is orientalism and the how does it impact our lives? We get real and delve into the way orientalism seeps into gaming. We also chat with Jayd Matyas about designing escape rooms, the challenges of being the only woman of colour on a project, and taiko drumming. Special shoutouts: mantis shrimps, dating while Asian, getting paid

Agatha’s Notes: Correction on the audio – Tobie Abad, designer of the awesome game A Single Moment, is Filipino!
