That’s a great perspective as I did think a cultural consultant was the expert in isolation, but it makes much more sense that it’s more about having the base of lived experience in conjunction with engaging with the community / culture that the game is looking to represent.
I’m actually thinking of a restaurant type game idea, and thinking of culture as more than just race / religion opens it so much to what we as designers should be thinking about when we are designing a game 😛
Looking forward to taking the principle forward of “My work is helping it to recognize the roots while celebrating the differences.” both in game design, life and more!
Thanks for giving me some insight into what that world is like!
