Yesterday night, I put up a post condemning two feminist crusaders’ attempts to censor the Conan board game. Near the end of that piece, I said it was possible that Monolith could remove the content that the feminists wanted removed, since that has been the pattern in many similar controversies.
However, there is some good news.
Monolith defended the game to Kotaku, disputing some of Hornbeck’s assertions about the artwork and mechanics, and arguing that the game draws from Howard’s books and John Buscema’s Conan comics.
We asked Asmodee for any comment on Hornbeck’s assertions on the game. “We don’t comment on the thoughts and opinions of private individuals,” an Asmodee spokesperson wrote.
If those companies stand their ground against the feminist bullies, it will be a great day for gaming indeed. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
