Character gender is ‘irrelevant’, Dontnod says

French developer Dontnod Entertainment has said that the gender of your main character is "quite irrelevant" when it comes to the quality and success of a game or its storyline.

The comments emerged during aReddit Ask Me Anything, in which a user asked whether he should play Life Is Strange when he’s not a teenage girl in high school, according toGamespot.

"To be honest we also really think that the gender of a main character is quite irrelevant when creating a good story," Koch wrote. "It really depends on how you write your characters in relation to the themes you are dealing with."
