In this 2020 GDC virtual talk, game writer and narrative designer Tori Schafer explains her design process for creating complex and interesting LGBT+ characters.
It was an illuminating session that saw Schafer drawing on examples from both the MMORPG Elder Scrolls Online (and acclaimed quests like the GLAAD Award-winning Manor Of Masques) and the upcoming indie game Backbone.
It was a remarkable talk, and now you can watch it completely free on the official GDC YouTube channel!
