Are you able to confirm, or elaborate, on this quote from this article? Thanks.
"Spiders also told us that you'll have the option to pick either a male or female character in the game - the choice won't affect too much of what you play, but it will limit the romance choices you have once you get a bit further into the title."
I'm still certain that talking about how the male companions will offer some lgbtq representation is a way better and more meaningful topic than 'are they hot?' (How are the devs even supposed to answer that?).
So yeah, just saying this to the devs, a lot of people here would like to talk about the lgbtq representation present in the game.
@santos-pizarro you are totally making sense i assure you, but i think it's best to not expect this level of complexity in the game world for this game in particular. You're more likely to find things of this level in simulators, or detailed open world games perhaps, but this game is not open world.
The complexity you're going to see in this game is probably going to mostly come from the RPG mechanics and the character interactions.
I gotta be honest, I kinda feel like "attractive" guys in games fit into two or three really narrow, really boring archetypes, and I'm pretty tired of it. Anders is a prime example - I never really found him all that attractive because he looks like he was designed by committee. If I have to choose between getting a character who's traditionally attractive and getting one who has a face with personality, I'll go with the latter every time.
Agreed. Love the characters with a more unique appearance that's something you're not entirely used to, or expecting.
Andrew was a breath of fresh air compared to Dorian or Gil. I love romances that are actually about the 2 guys-not about the world judging them for who they are. I also like that he didn't flirt with the girls like most of the bisexual characters in BioWare games. He was nice to them and acted like a friend. Much more realistic and enjoyable to me!
Yeah, it was really nice, makes me optimistic about the gay romance/s in this game.
My 2 cents. We know the game will have straight and gay romance, that is already leagues ahead of most games. That being said I am far more interested in the story and combat and character development than what characters look like. If you want "hot" characters play a dating sim. I for one want thank the devs at Spiders for their hard work and I eagerly await further news
Yes, the three things you listed are vastly more important, as well as the actual content of the romances as opposed to the appearance of them.
