By applying an integrative approach for understanding and evaluating gender-inclusivity in games, it presents a unique framework to conceptualise, design and evaluate gender-inclusivity in games. The Gender-Inclusivity Framework (GIF), which is research-based and grounded in quantitative experiments, offers the tools needed to create a more gender-inclusive game during the design process. It introduces a framework with gender-inclusivity dimensions and components; explains the behaviour of the gender-inclusivity dimensions and components; and defines a new measuring instrument for evaluating gender-inclusivity in games. This book will aid game designers, researchers and educators in broadening their work to integrate, create and implement gender-inclusivity in games systematically.
