Publish date:

Japanese publisher Square Enix is the only company that would agree to publish Dontnod Entertainment's latest title with its female lead character unchanged.

The French studio has released a new developer diary about its episodic new title, which sees players follow the story of a girl with the ability to bend time,GameSpotreports. During the video, creative director Jean-Maxime Moris discussed the conditions some publishers demanded when Dontnod approached them.

"Square is basically the only publisher who didn't want to change a single thing about the game," she said. "We had other publishers telling us to make it a male lead character, and Square didn't even question that once."
