Dragon’s Crown game might turn out to be a very interesting game, but until now only two parts of it have managed to garner interest on the internet: its sorceress’ gigantic boobs.
As expected, the large hovering (yes, they hover and bounce – remember that she’s a sorceress) breasts irked a lot of people. One of those people is Gearbox environmental artist Shaylyn Hamm who posted on the Escapist’s forum saying that "I want to see more women getting interested in games and game development, but stuff like this only serves to further cement the idea that you're stepping into a male hobby rather than something that is more inclusive."
"Also, this is the first time I've seen that character and holy shit, ahahahahahaha. That's actually something that made its way into a basically finished video game, fucking lol! Some juvenile delinquent kid in my 5th grade class used to draw girls that looked like that (only without the creepy blank, featureless samefaces and wizard hats), and I think he was actually better at it. I also think he's in jail now. This is amazing."
Hamm’s comments didn’t brush right with Dragon’s Crown fans who pointed out that that Gearbox has a lot of sexualized female characters in its games with special mention going to Duke Nukem Forever.
Dragon’s Crown artist George Kamitani didn’t respond to Hamm’s comments, but he responded earlier to similar comments by drawing a picture of three nearly-naked dwarfs and pointing out that his criticizers would enjoy it.
