Forrige måned så vi en del Pride-feiringer finne sted verden over for å feire mennesker som er en del av LGBTQ+. Denne høsten kan du på Steam kan du fortsette å feire med IV Productions spill kalt Pride Run, hvor meningen er å arrangere sine egne Pride-parader.
Altså, det handler faktisk mer om å holde festen kjørende enn selve logistikken.
"We're a diverse development team, and many of us have been lucky enough to attend different Prides around the world. We felt it was about time someone took the sheer energy, passion and extravagance that emanates from these celebrations of LGBTQ+ culture beyond attendees and out into the wider world," forteller Ivan Venturi, CEO og Game Director for IV Productions. "Players who successfully grow their parades will then be tasked with taking on a boss in a one-on-one dance duel, with the victor taking control of the city - and, in the end, the world."
"At its heart, Pride Run is a celebration of Pride events around the world," tilføyer Jonny Merritt, som er Head of Developer Relations for Green Man Gaming Publishing. "The game focuses on rhythm, taking the beat that defines many a march and making it a foundation of play. We think the fun nature of what is definitely a light-hearted, celebratory take on the Pride movement will translate well with gamers across the globe. As part of the launch of the game, Green Man Gaming is exploring ways of supporting LGBTQ+ rights charities who we feel are aligned with our inclusivity and diversity values. More exciting news to come."
Spillet blir co-utviklet med Steam Factory, og som du kan se i annonserings-traileren og bildene under, så har det en piksel-stil, som er stappfullt av farger.
