Anna Kendrick’s SNL opening monologue
Ubisoft is releasing an RPG game in 2014 called Child of Light, featuring a female protagonist. Like most games with female protagonists, it’s getting almost NO marketing and therefore no hype! Check it out, share it around. It looks really cute and I think we ALL want more video games with female protagonists to succeed!
Things you should know about Child of Light, other than the above:
- It is coming out on April 30th for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in the US.
- It is coming out for Steam/Uplay outside the US
- It is $14.99
- For a whole RPG
- Everyone has different budgets and this is pretty affordable for many people who game
- If you can spare the cash it is on like every platform
- April 30th! Preorder or save the date.
I’d also like to add that the soundtrack and art direction alone both look fantastic! Even if you don’t want or can’t have the game, please reblog this so fellow artists and musicians alike can see it!
Props to Ubisoft, always pushing toward more socially aware games, even when they don’t always get it right. Beyond Good and Evil, years ago on the Gamecube, featured Jade, a woman of color as the protagonist. And Assassin’s Creed: Liberation starred a woman who was Black and French. In fact Assassin’s Creed games began with Syrian protagonists who were fighting the Christian Crusades, and as the franchise grew, also covered ousting papal corruption and occupiers from Italy as well as starred a half-indigenous and half-White/British guy (Ratonhnhaké:ton, or Connor) in ACIII. (They enjoy exploring these complexities; even Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad, in the first AC, was born of a Christian mother.)
In numerous ways, Ubisoft consistently pushes the envelope and I greatly respect them for it.
