There isn't that much that is glamorous about game development. I know many who dedicate their lives to making games, and it's arduous, painful and deathly competitive.

That's why it's interesting to see glamour toy icon Barbie taking on the role. Announced by Mattel (viua Polygon), a Barbie game developer toy has been announced and it will be on store shelves in the Summer. She comes with a laptop to code on too, so the brings up the question, does she prefer Unity or Unreal?

Honestly, this is actually really cool to see. Breaking down that tech and game careers traditionally are for men as a stereotype may encourage younger girls to consider the position as something to aspire to. That's pretty neat at least, ey?
