Red Thread Games? I love what you've done with DFC, I'm a big fan of TLJ and DF, but wow. You guys really done goofed. One of the appeals of the TLJ/DF games is that they're pretty accepting, and we see this with two non-white protagonists in Dreamfall, the lesbian couple in TLJ, and even in DFC I've seen punks cuddling women in hijabs, and I think that's something I've always loved.
So then we get to this scene towards the end of Chapter 2. It... gets pretty awful towards the end. Moving past what sounds like Mira's awful stereotypical accent (I would be very surprised if her actress had that accent naturally), and the constant stream of swearing, when we get to 2:05 the real problems start.
1. 'Retard'? Really? Are we in a school ground or the YouTube comments here? That's not a cool word to use. I don't care if it goes with the tone of the character, because this is the first time we meet her and there's no context to her relationship with Wit. Insulting someone based on their mental facilities is just gross.
2. Autism denial. "I bet you've been faking your autism since we first met". I'm... not even going to pick that apart because if you can't think of an issue with it then... yeah. That's just out of line.
Combine this with earlier comments where she insults his inability/reluctance to speak ('dumb' - yes, that's what it means), etc., it comes across as a few minutes of non-contextual hate against an implied disabled character. I expect this to happen in the comments sections of websites. I don't expect a studio working on a game with a history of being somewhat progressive or at least positive in its displays of people to come out with something like this.
Really regretting my $75 pledge now. Honestly can't believe RTG did this and think it's acceptable to ship. Please, if you have any sense, you'll rewrite that section and remove those vile, inappropriate comments. I honestly don't care if it fits her tone - someone wrote her script. Someone edited it. Someone recorded it. And no-one thought it was unacceptable? That's shocking.
