Things I Dig: Dragon Age: Inquisition’s Krem

I recently published an article about how Canadian game developer BioWare dealt with a contingent of gamers who were lobbying them not to include queer characters in their role-playing games.  I wrote that it looked like BioWare had looked at the demographic data about who was playing their games and decided that they stood to make more money by courting a larger, more diverse audience of queer gamers and their allies than they stood to lose by angering those who claimed they would desert BioWare if queerness became more prominent in their games.

Well, it looks like this conclusion was correct.  Check out Krem, who is being heralded as “the best trans character in the history of video games.”

Happy Thanksgiving!
