Song of the Deep, a new video game by Insomniac Games is hitting a frequently untapped market when it comes to children. A book produced in parallel with the game tells the story of a young girl named Merryn, who one night builds a submarine to venture out into open water in search of her father… who one stormy night at sea, never came back home. RetConned’s Patrick Garrett spoke with author and co-founder of Insomniac Games, Paul Hastings on what the games and book industry are doing to help encourage young girls.
