Wow. Good for them. I still have to finish it. :phil_lmao:

I need to play it again, I made it half way on xbox before I got rid of my One X while I waited for the Series X (did that a bit too soon sadly). Going to jump back in on PC Game Pass I think before the DLC, loved everything I saw/played.

The space adventure RPG includes a companion character name Parvati, whose main questline involves her confiding in the player that she is asexual and asking for their help in pursuing a romantic relationship with another woman engineer, Junlei.

The questline has been praised for its empathetic and positive representation of asexuality, as well as the fact that much of Parvati’s dialogue was written by Kate Dollarhyde, who also identifies as asexual.

I didn’t know about this. Very cool.

Can’t say I enjoyed the gameplay much but there’s some good writing in there. Congrats!

That was one of my favorite quest lines, definitely don’t miss it!

Parvati was cute
