Female character

I think TTG should do a game with a female protagonist.... Now that they have the pilot program there has never been a better time to try it out.

    I don't much care whether the protagonist is male, female, of indeterminate gender or a mix of both - the most important thing is that they're interesting, likeable and well-written.

    That said though, sure. I'd be all for a game with a girl in the lead.
  • Wait, are you saying that games with female protagonists are inherently risky business propositions?

    ...

    Huh.
  • That's what I was thinking.
  • maybe Morgan LeFlay Ghost Pirate Hunter(TM)
  • I'm trying to think of adventure games that have female protagonists/playable characters and I'm coming up... Maniac Mansion and Day of the Tentacle. There may be more, but those are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head.

    Obviously that is not true.

    I was just thinking about how TTG has not had the main player character a female yet.
  • Many adventures games have female protagonists/playable characters:
    Syberia, Still Life, Secret Files, The Longest Journey/Dreamfall, Mata Hari, So Blonde, Agatha Christie: Murder on the Orient Express, Another Code, Fenimore Fillmore Revenge, Runaway: A twist of fate, Ankh, Jack Keane, some of the King's Quest, Leisure Suit Larry (I think in some games you play as Passionate Patti in some places), Broken Sword, Gabriel Knight (I think you play as Grace Nakimura in some places in the third game)...

    A random list of the ones I could think of. No particular order, haven't played a couple of them, and probably worth noting that there were some I didn't like much (refer to previous comment about protagonists needing to be likeable and well-written!).

    King's Quest IV
    King's Quest VII (there are 2 protagonists you play, both female)
    Broken Sword series (4 games, mostly you play as a guy but there are parts where you control a girl)
    Emerald City Confidential
    Runaway (again, mostly a guy but parts played as a girl)
    Laura Bow
    Phantasmagoria
    Return to Mysterious Island
    Nancy Drew series (20+ games)
    Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within (mostly a guy)
    A Vampyre Story
    So Blonde

    EDIT: Ninja'd by Javi-Wan. :D

    You play as Grace for a pretty large chunk of 3, actually, and roughly half of 2.

    I really liked those... what I have played of them anyway.
