Kesäkuun Pride-tapahtumat valtasivat maailman suuret kaupungit. LGBTQ+-yhteisön juhlinta ei kuitenkaan loppunut kesäkuun päättymiseen, vaan asiaa pidetään pinnalla syksyllä julkaistavassa Pride Run -pelissäkin.
Steamissa julkaistava teos keskittyy joukon marssimisen edistämiseen, kertoo tekijätiimin Ivan Venturi.
"We're a diverse development team, and many of us have been lucky enough to attend different Prides around the world. We felt it was about time someone took the sheer energy, passion and extravagance that emanates from these celebrations of LGBTQ+ culture beyond attendees and out into the wider world. Players who successfully grow their parades will then be tasked with taking on a boss in a one-on-one dance duel, with the victor taking control of the city - and, in the end, the world."
Julkaisija Green Man Gamingin Jonny Merritt puolestaan näkee teoksen Pride-juhlien jatkumona.
"At its heart, Pride Run is a celebration of Pride events around the world. The game focuses on rhythm, taking the beat that defines many a march and making it a foundation of play. We think the fun nature of what is definitely a light-hearted, celebratory take on the Pride movement will translate well with gamers across the globe. As part of the launch of the game, Green Man Gaming is exploring ways of supporting LGBTQ+ rights charities who we feel are aligned with our inclusivity and diversity values. More exciting news to come."
