Special Thanks

We would like to thank NC State's Women's Center and members of the Communication, Rhetoric, and Digital Media program for their support of this project.


Raiders of the Lost Arcade, part of the NC State University Libraries Making Space Series, provides a platform for campus members to critically engage with tropes and stereotypes about gamers and video game characters, and to use video games to promote experiential learning, empathy building, and storytelling.

Typically an in-person experiential program, we are experimenting with Raiders as an on-line experience. Try out the free games below, which were selected by members of the NC State community in honor of Women's History Month, and read about the others that will be available for check out at the Libraries.
