You Are The Reason Demo Now Available On Windows
“You Are The Reason” a 2D RPG built with the RPG Maker has released a demo on Windows. The game has the player taking the role of a girl with magical abilities, in a world in which such abilities are a death sentence. She must embark on a quest to prove that magic can be used for good, while avoiding the murderous mob that seeks to kill her.
You Are The Reason features a host of unique features not seen in many other RPGs. For instance the combat system pushes the player toward non-violent ends as the central character doesn’t like the idea of killing other humans.
On top of that the central character is also transgender, a demographic rarely seen within video games. Although the fact that they are trans does not affect the story much, and is instead just a staple part of the character.
You Are The Reason is being created by a single person, Laura Kate Dale, a games critic herself who began work on You Are The Reason “as an experiment”.
“[It was] a challenge to see if creating a game for myself would change my perspective as a critic and have a positive effect on my writing. I can tell you that I have certainly learnt a lot from the process.”
You Are The Reason also features an array of voice actors, including Escapist Reviewers Editor Jim Sterling, known for his cutting videos on the games industry.
