Questions for Nico


What other franchise(s) would you like to see add an older woman as a playable character or protagonist

What kind of story would you love to play in a game that (as far as you know) has never been done before?

Do you think any games have achieved “timeless” status or is the medium still too young?

What we’re playing/reading/watching:

Nico: Overwatch, World of Warcraft, No Man’s Sky, Penny Dreadful

Tanya: Sims 4 with Dragon Age mods

David: Still just Starbound and Pokemon Go. I did watch Stranger Things recently tho.
