so I recently finished my first play through of Shadowrun Returns, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by one aspect of the game. a large portion of the plot important NPC’s were women, and many of them are women of color. it’s a pretty small cast, and the most of the other NPC’s are white men.
now the game isn’t perfect. coyote, despite being a professional shotgun wielding badass, is introduced as a damsel in distress. Overall however I felt this was a very nice step and figured I’d share.
