Rise of the Videogame Zinesters
Bluestockings (172 Allen St., Manhattan)
Get yer nerd on! Indie game designer extraordinaire Anna Anthropy reads from her DIY guide and manifesto, Rise of the Videogame Zinesters; How Freaks, Normals, Amateurs, Artists, Dreamers, Drop-outs, Queers, Housewives, and People Like You Are Taking Back an Art Form, which serves as a call to arms for anyone who’s ever dreamed of making their own games. As a queer, transgender woman, Anna encourages budding designers to bring their unique backgrounds and experiences to their creations and widen the playing field of an industry that has for too long catered to a homogeneous male population.
