Games featuring Women: Herione’s Quest

So, a friend of mine is taking on a new challenge to only play new games that give you the option to play as a woman. And I thought, I’d share what I find in the Indie Games realm. There are actually a few games that are coming out this April that feature female protagonists in the indie realm.

So here’s one that was released in February 2014 and it’s free! (Donate if you can.)

Heroine’s Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok

Beware The Ides of March

Origin

“From Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, 1601. ‘Beware the Ides of March’ is the soothsayer’s message to Julius Caesar, warning of his death.

The Ides of March didn’t signify anything special in itself – this was just the usual way of saying “March 15th”. The notion of the Ides being a dangerous date was purely an invention of Shakespeare’s; each month has an Ides (often the 15th) and this date wasn’t significant in being associated with death prior to 1601.

Months of the Roman calendar were arranged around three named days – the Kalends, the Nones and the Ides – and these were reference points from which the other (unnamed) days were calculated:

Kalends (1st day of the month).
Nones (the 7th day in March, May, July, and October; the 5th in the other months).
Ides (the 15th day in March, May, July, and October; the 13th in the other months).”
