Dontnod Introduces Tell Me Why, a New Game Featuring a Transgender Lead

Tell Me Why is Dontnod's next project, a game about identical twins and transgender identity

'Tell Me Why' makes history with the first playable transgender protagonist from a major game studio

Life is odd developer Dontnod had a brand new game to showcase at X019, as we got a new trailer for a game called Tell Me Why, which looks to be an emotional tale following twins Tyler and Alyson.

To ensure the Life is unusual developer did the character justice, they worked with both Microsoft and LGBTQ advocacy organisation Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). Set in small-town Alaska, the game focuses on twins Tyler and Alyson Ronan, who explore their troubled childhood throughout the course of the game.

Asked whether he will speak to Gomez about the issue, Southgate said: "Absolutely". I think we all handled it as well as we could have.


In a readied explanation, game executive Florent Guillaume said that players will "investigate the indistinguishable twins' various recollections of key occasions and pick which memory to accept". Your choices will affect the main mechanic of the game, which is that bond between the twins, and will affect their future lives.

Nick Adams, Director of Transgender Representation at GLAAD added that "Tyler is a fully-realized, endearing character, whose story is not reduced to simplistic trans tropes". The game will release on PC (both through the Microsoft Game Store and Steam) and Xbox One, available through Xbox Game Pass on day one.

Man wounded in shooting at game faces charges
Henry said he knows that shootings happen in the area but he "never thought it would happen at a high school football game". Five other men have been charged in connection with the shooting, including the alleged gunman.


The first transgender character to lead a story line in a video game has been debuted by Xbox Games Studios, "raising the bar" for the industry. "We've tried our best to do that", he said. "I think we have a sense of team pride about it, because it's so unique ... hopefully, fans and the transgender community and the LBGTQ community will respond positively to it as well".

This is definitely a major step for the video game industry in my opinion and everyone here is incredibly excited to play this game in 2020. The time between episodes can be a pain for players who want to experience the next chapter of an adventure, but there shouldn't be any massive gaps between the three chapters of this story.
