To some extent, yes. In particular, some characters will be more or less forthcoming and might have different priorities depending on your character's sex, sexual orientation, and abilities. But, things might change a bit during testing so I don't want to over-sell this now. Subject for a future Sneak Preview, methinks. :)

In the beginning of the game there's a short scene introducing Roger Steel, then you can select if to play as male/female main character. Roger will be like Loren, a star-character but at least in this one you don't play a slave :lol:


Is it going to be like Lone Ranger and Tonto (we play as Tonto) :?:


Or Tonta, as the case may be? (Tonto's tougher older sister, edited from history by the rampant sexism of our times ...)

Yeah, Ann is certainly no slave or camp follower of Steel's. She'd make Spartacus' rebellion look like a pillow fight in a convent school. :lol:


Interesting, didn't know about Tonta! I don't want to mess with Ann :lol:

Oh yeah, this is something I've been meaning to ask: how do you approach writing the opposite sex?

Mark will be able to reply you better, but basically we wanted to make sure that if you want, you can be "only friend" with homosexual/bisex characters without triggering unwanted romance randomly :)

Including improved friendship with characters who wouldn't be interested in you anyway?

Reason being, in Loren I really enjoyed interacting with Draco, but he only really opens up if you romance him... so Elenor missed out on some neat discussions.

We talked about this already in another thread, but forgot which one! if I remember correctly what Mark said, in practice we'll try to add also a friendship path, but of course we'll first focus on the romances :)

It could even lead to special 'events'/quests or stat/ability bonuses. Depends on the word-count (which is less than half the size of Loren) and a few things besides - not least game engine support - but certainly I see value in having these type of relationships in games. No promises, though, at this stage.
