It seems that Centipede appeals to women more than most arcade games. Do you think Donna Bailey [programistyka gry] had something to do with that?
I wish I knew the answer to that question. Someone could point out that no other game I have done appeals to women as much as Centipede. Many theories have been suggested. One is that it was created by a woman. Another is that destroying insects fits well with a woman’s psyche. I believe this game appeals to women because it is not gender biased like fighting games or RPGs or sports games. Other examples like Pac-Man and Tetris are notable.
