Products by Women: Blowback

You like spy movies? You like Burn Notice? You like women taking on and tackling awesome projects and seeing them to completion?

You want Blowback by Elizabeth Shoemaker with layout by Shreyas Sampat. I heard about it all weekend at Gencon, and with good reason.

The creation of this game, on a thousand dollar budget is fascinating, you can read about it here.

The layout and design is beautiful. The images of women in the book are powerful and attractive without ever giving you the impression that they are anything but ‘in charge.’ As you would expect from a woman spy within the genre. There’s no ‘oh no, Mr. Bond, sex me up and suddenly I’ll help you,’ images in this game.

I haven’t played it yet, but as soon as I do, I’ll come back and give you a real review. In the meantime, check it out, take a look, and Elizabeth, Shreyas, if you read this, contact me, I’d love to interview ya’ll!
