Dear Fellow Gamers,
I, Joanna Robinson, Graduate Student, from the Department of Communications, Popular Culture & Film, Brock University (www.brocku.ca ), invite you to participate in a research project entitled Gender, Representations & Interactions in Resident Evil Online.
The purpose of this research project is to explore the different ways players interact in Resident Evil Outbreak and how they think and feel about REO’s characters.
The expected duration is a 40-60 minute interview (by email).
This research should benefit games research in general, by providing an important historical case study of an online console game community, as well as generating recommendations for gender inclusive game design in the future.
If you have ever played or currently play Resident Evil Outbreak and would like to participate or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at JRobinson@BrockU.ca.
JOANNA S. ROBINSON
