Google Play is celebrating International Women’s Day with a category dedicated to games and developers

It’s still a bit weird to me that we need a day to celebrate Women (as that should be done naturally everyday) but seeing the recent news and movements, it seems that we do indeed need it more than ever.

Google is taking the lead in the mobile space it seems with a big feature on women and games, featuring apps and games made by women and strong female protagonists in game.

For games then, this means that titles like the excellent A Normal Lost Phone, made by three women, is featured quite prominently but you can also find classics KAMI 2, Lara Croft GO, République, the latest Layton and more.

The App Store has some stories about women in its today page but nothing focused on gaming that we could see.
