Bug fixed.

His wife's attitude was it was "better to have a Game Developer Barbie than not have one at all," said Marcus, who created the website to celebrate diversity in the video game industry.


But Titre-Montgomery didn't know that her husband had a fix for this bug. He bought a black Barbie and carefully dressed it in the Game Developer Barbie's clothes and placed it back into the box for Titre-Montgomery's birthday.

Titre-Montgomery was totally surprised by her husband's creative solution.

"My ultimate goal was to make my wife smile," he said. "That’s really what I wanted. It was a birthday present and I just wanted to make sure she was happy."


However, Montgomery bucks any compliments calling him a genius.

"Lets be real," he said. "It’s not something other mothers haven't done before."

Titre-Montgomery, who is a successful game designer and advocate for black women in tech, emphasized the importance of awareness of black game developers to expand the culture of gaming in a May 2015 interview with Black Girl Nerds.

"If you see someone who looks like you doing something you want to do, it feels more possible," she said.
