Laochra is a collection of concept art for a hypothetical video game that centers on women, in particular queer women and women of color. Laochra is about being unabashedly, unashamedly being yourself in an environment that is otherwise hostile, it's about making room for yourself, and allowing yourself to be full of joy. Video games are historically hostile to women and Laochra seeks to break through that and imagine a world that's made about us, for us, by us.
