Last article for today, just to point out that Humble has launched a 'Female Protagonist Sale' and there's some really good Linux games in there.

Here's some top picks:

There's a couple more as well, those are just my top picks currently. Some absolutely great deals there, for those of you looking for something new for a rainy day.

Check out the sale here.

In the name of equality I wonder if people would have been outraged if Humble Bundle had a "Male Protagonist Sale"

Okami HD is still borked on Proton. :( But it's still funny to see the game in the sale because years ago when the game first came out nobody knew Amaterasu was female! :D

But if you need a four-legged fix on Linux, Epistory is included in the sale and featuring a large ride-able foxe! :D

It's a very interesting looking typing game I've been meaning to try out for a long time because I enjoyed the Typing of the Dead series, but I've never gotten around to trying it.

There's always gotta be that one guy...

Well, all the Japanese people it was originally designed for knew it, given Amaterasu is the name of a pretty famous goddess and all.

To be honest there have been "French developers sales", "Japanese games sales" etc...

But yeah, in the current ambiance, it sounds a little weird. Speaking of weird i never noticed anything female in SteamWorld Heist. But heh, it is just marketing.

No Tomb Raider Sales though. ;)

I guess if male protagonists will ever be grossly underrepresented and marginalized in gaming in the same way female characters are today, it might actually be a thing!

If...it -really- will ever come down to that, I will sympathize. Promise!

Captain Piper, the captain of the ship, the only squad member you cannot not play is female.

As well you should sympatize! Ah, the legions of young boys that have been scared for life by not having the option of playing tombraider as a male protagonist. I tell you; the safespaces were flooded with their tears, some are there weeping still!


</sarcasm>

Honestly the outrage-pron addicts ... :|

I think female game characters are not being marginalized. To marginalize someone is an active thing one does. Are there any pointers at all that there is marginalization going on in the gaming world today or at any time?

I remember that it wasn't really touched on in this game. It was one of those games that didn't make a fuss about gender - like we all should. The main char just happened to be female. That's it.
