I purchased this as part of the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. I really liked the artwork and the story premise, and settled in to have a fun time.

Not long into the game, I realized that there is a casting of the darker-skinned character as an uncultured brute (according to another character), which is a terrible trope and one of the very caricatures of black people that the bundle was created to help change.

I can't continue to play this game.

We're sorry that the game made you uncomfortable and fully understand your reasoning. The character in question is actually neither uncultured nor a brute but this is currently only made clear as the story progresses and you get to know him better.

We've discussed the matter and decided to rewrite the way prejudice is shown in the story to avoid reinforcing the trope and to better reflect the tone of the game we were aiming for.
Harmful stereotypes are something we don't want to include in our games so leaving the remarks you mentioned unchallenged was not our intention and will be addressed with the next update.

Thank you for the feedback.

Thank you for your willingness to listen and change. I look forward to trying the game again after the next update.
