In celebration of Pride Month, narrative the adventure game Tell Me Why is available for free digital download on Xbox, Windows 10, and Steam marketplace for all of June. This includes Chapters 1, 2 and 3 of the game.
Developed by indie studio Dontnod Entertainment, Tell Me Why is an episodic, story-driven game that follows twins Tyler and Alyson Ronan as they return to their fictional Alaskan hometown of Delos Crossing. While traversing the town and interacting with its inhabitants, players explore a myriad of visions and memories, working to uncover the truth of the Ronan twins’ troubled childhood. Tell Me Why is hailed as a groundbreaking game for its inclusion of a transgender protagonist, Tyler, shining a rare light on trans identity in the gaming community while exploring themes of PTSD and gender.
As mentioned in a statement by Dontnod, the studio is offering Tell Me Why for free during Pride Month to “allow even more people to access the game and to encourage our players to spend their money in places that will directly affect trans and queer communities.” The indie developer also cites a number of other games developed by trans and queer creators available for purchase, including That Which Faith Demands by Jenna Yow and Spirit Swap by Soft Not Weak.
It’s rare that all chapters of an episodic, narrative game are made available to play for free, so if you’re looking for an easy entryway into the genre while celebrating Pride Month, this is the deal for you. If you don’t have an Xbox console or PC, you can still play Tell Me Why for free on your Android device with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.
