Men Are From…

A while back a cultural, literary phenomenon sweeps our collective consciousness opining that women and men hailed from different planets, and that explained the never-ending battle of the sexes. We here at Saljack have written numerous blogs about how proud we are that we are a female owned and operated digital powerhouse but don’t think for a minute we could provide solid, well-rounded tech candy without the input of our interplanetary partners.  If men do in fact, come from a different stratosphere we believe that is a good thing.

If there ever really was a battle of the sexes it could easily have been averted by everyone involved if they just were given a little perspective. (Perhaps this is the reason they asked one of the guys here to pen this prose). Perspective allows the key players a fuller more wholesome understanding and is one of the key components of success. A digital product whether it is a game, campaign or cinematic gem can only be complete and engaging with the input from a well-rounded brain trust that encompasses all of us.

The same applies to a creative think tank such as Saljack. We are proud of who we are and where we are going and only partner with the best creative people in our industry, no matter which planet they may have come from. (I have no idea which one I am from, but they don’t seem to care!)

DISCLAIMER: It should be noted that this post is being written by a dude, one of many who work and play every day at Saljack.

    In the current tide of events around origins of gender, is that identity gender or assigned gender that dictates from which planet I would hail? This is part of a role playing game or network of games, so are you limited to two genders here?

    Given the current tide of thought and policies around gender, I’m curious if the planet from which you hail is reflecting your gender assigned at birth, or the gender to which you identify? And how many gender options are included in this scenario, and one more question– can I change gender after setting up my character without having to start over?

    It’s always good to read the perspective of the opposite gender! While everyone sees the world differently, it’s not necessarily because of being male or female. Great piece!

    Well, that was a charming entry. I had no idea Saljack was a female run company. I’m glad it is, there need to be more of those. But at the same time, it really has no bearing on what I have seen or read on this site. Mars or Venus or Pluto, quality lies in an artist’s work, not in their genitals.

    I like the idea of taking a common saying and acting as if it is an inarguable fact. And creating a whole story line based on it? Ingenious

    Very interesting. One problem though. If men are all on one planet and women on another, how do they get together to create more of the species? And where are the individual embryos (male and female) incubated? On a third planet and then after birth shipped to their respective homes? Or do women come from a woman producing planet and men from a man producing planet and then the infants are transported to earth where they created what we have today? Perhaps the origon of the species (humans) began as the female gender on one planet and the male on another and this (earth) is an alien experiment in which the two genders must work together? Enquiring minds want to know.

    You hit the nail right on the head! I think certain games and movies have suffered because of an imbalance in the gender input from both sides. The best of the best allow all to input. The inclusion of the LGBT community would offer an even more diverse perspective and balance to the equation.

    1. Absolutely, there is no exclusion of any gender or community. Our product will be inclusive to everyone. As mentioned, we have yet to make an announcement in the direction of the project, and that will be soon. Thank you for your comment!

    It really depends on the game or movie though. Certain cultural artifacts would benefit from an exclusively male or female team of input. On the other hand, a great majority of games and movies need to have diversity to be of any value.

    Gender is never black and white these days. And I believe in the next generation or in half a century, the gender spectrum will become wider. I have no problem with your gender preference or expression. But what really irks me is when people play the gender card when it’s not the issue at all.

    Glad to have read this article. Diversity and equality should go hand in hand. But I still have yet to encounter a gaming character that’s gay or trans. Or maybe there’s one that I haven’t heard of?

    Interesting post! I think some superheros/gaming heroes should be left with suspense surrounding them where people have to wonder which gender they are. Some of them should be categorized as omni-gender, not sure if that word already exists but if I had to define it, it would be that the character could morph and take on the characteristics of any gender or species at any give time: man, woman, cat, dog, wolf, whatever – and draw on the various powers of each in any given situation.

    “A digital product whether it is a game, campaign or cinematic gem can only be complete and engaging with the input from a well-rounded brain trust that encompasses all of us.” What I think that, digital products give people a perception of feeling, just like, hearing and seeing. It might help people to increase sense of motion.

    It’s awesome that Saljack is female owned – I feel like the gaming industry (at least in the past) has been lacking a representation for those who identify as female. However, I like how you are also inclusive and share both the male and female perspective on things. Whether we’re from mars or venus, it’s great to know that we can meet halfway.

    Whether your company is run and/or owned by a male or female, the important thing is that everyone in it is working toward the same goal and are happy doing it together. Perhaps your group will pave the way to something new and exciting for the gaming industry in the near future.

    Your company is owned/run by a female. So what? Never ever think anything less of it. If others would, then let them be. Channel your energy towards what you need to accomplish. Also, if your boss is anything like Felicia Day, I wouldn’t mind working with you!
