    [X1][Dontnod] Tell me Why





    New Game From The Makers Of Life Is Strange Features A Transgender Hero

    Dontnod Entertainment, the studio behind Life is Strange and Vampyr, are making a new game. Tell Me Why is a mystery adventure game about unraveling a troubled past starring a pair of twins, one of whom is transgender.

    In Tell Me Why, players follow the story of Tyler and Alyson Ronan, exploring both of their memories to recall key moments of their lives. Players can shape what they remember, ultimately affecting their lives in the present.

    “We love them both,” game director Florent Guillaume said in a press release, “And we are especially grateful to Microsoft for its full support, openness and help regarding Tyler’s identity and character, as a transgender man.”

    “Tyler is a fully-realized, endearing character, whose story is not reduced to simplistic trans tropes,” Nick Adams, Director of Transgender Representation at GLAAD added. “Creating a playable lead trans character – and taking such care to get it right – raises the bar for future LGBTQ inclusion in gaming.”

    As a queer who’s been around the block, I’ll admit that I’m nervous about how Dontnod will approach Tyler. Visibility in games is welcome, but authenticity is also important. There’s precedent for empathic writing but also room for missteps. I hope that Tyler really is a fully realized character.

    Dontnod’s narrative games are often released in episodic installments. Life is Strange 2’s first episode released in September 2018 and the series is still not complete. Tell Me Why will be three chapters long, all of which will release in Summer 2020.

    Als het niet al te geforceerd over komt, waarom niet.

    Ik denk dat deze studio dit wel op een goede manier kan (respectvol en representatief).

    Past ook wel goed in de tijdsgeest van nu waarin steeds meer aandacht is voor LGBTQ en gender (diverse Netflix series bevatten queer en trans personages).

    De trend zal invloed hebben op deze game, maar denk niet dat het de makkelijke keuze is omdat er vast mensen zullen zijn die de game hierom laten liggen.

    Daarom een interessant gegeven, ben benieuwd!

    Ik speel braaf alles wat DontNod maakt, ongeacht de thematiek.
