Let's see now... There is EA with The Sims 4 pronoun junk update, there is Marvelous with their upcoming Story of Seasons game with an " enby " option for the main character and now there is Square Enix with Harvestella having an " enby " option for the main character much like the newest Story of Seasons...

Oh yes plus a few indies too like Playism too which published the game " Gnosia " in English which also gives the player an " enby " option in addition to having two NPCs who are " enbies " ...

Any others?

Do note that I do not count companies who have had transgender characters in stories that do not condone transgenderism like Atlus who had a few trans characters in their Persona games and Catherine because the TIM character in Catherine gets treated as his real biological sex in the story as even though the characters call him a " she " he still gets treated as a male by the game's curse that only affects males and the game's Japanese artbook also calls him a male and in Persona 4 there is a girl that almooost became a TIF but eventually she came to terms with herself as a woman and realizes that her problem is not with being biologically female but with sexism from society towards her so due to this I do not think Atlus counts as having embraced transgender ideology...

Blizzard swallows the gender koolaid when they're not too busy sexually harassing their employees and shitting up their best games. They turned my GNC bro Chromie into a dragon TIM (wtf) and have a gender special as a Hearthstone hero.

Worse, they replaced male and female with "Body Type 1" and "Body Type 2". Guess which one is second?

Bioware. Dragon Age 3 has a TIF side character and there is a TIM character in the comics. Also, game director for Dragon Age 4 in development is a TIM.

It would be easier to create a list of ones that haven't, to be honest.

The Five Nights At Freddy's franchise was blissfully apolitical. But that will likely change now that the conservative creator was pressured to quit after butthurt SJWs harassed his pregnant wife. 😥

I heard about the enby protag they'll be adding in SoS which does leave me irrate. Which does make me wonder (and I'm pretty sure my hunch is right) if the gender inclusion was only added in for the non-japanese releases of the game. Because I still remember that in the Japanese version of Paper Mario TTYD, Vivian was canonically a crossdressing boy, not trans in the American version.

i saw a lot of TIMs saying they’re were “literally crying” because animal crossing (new horizons?) let you “change gender” but i felt like it was like any other video game where you’re either a man or a woman.

i was just reminded of this. neopets.com has gone completely pro trans. it's not really a game a lot of people play any more and it's more of a nostalgia thing for people who do, i spent a lot of time there as a teenager, but they have LGBT pride flag items you can buy, you can have non binary pronouns instead of male/female and probably more things i can't remember. neopets is a children's pet site if anyone doesn't know. their big thing in the past was controversy over gambling games and integrated advertising within games (children couldn't tell which were ads and which what was a game) and i'm sure they got children addicted to "slot games" so i'm not surprised they've embraced transgenderism.

Holy shit, neopets??? I honestly didn't think there was that much a fan base left for them to try to rebrand themselves or whatever.

You can be a transgender quadruple amputee with hearing aids but there are no options for facial hair.

Thankfully, it has pretty much zero effect on the actual driving experience.

Oh, that made me laugh 😂

Like most large companies an easy way to make complaints go away on social media is to hire say GLAAD to advise them (or Stonewall in the UK, ACON in Australia, etc) and there advise is always add trans.

I swear the World of Warcraft expansion pack has a TIM doing some of the narration (for a female dragon, I believe) in the promotional videos. I haven't been able to confirm it, but it sure sounds like it.

If it's Alexstraza, the queen of dragons, she is not voiced by a TIM, afaik. They use some kinda filter to make her voice deeper when she's in her dragon form versus her elf form.

Dead by Daylight / Behavior is heading there. They've turned it into a LGBTQ+ game and making characters who don't even talk have sexualities. There are rainbow flag charms always hanging up in almost every match. I'm sure trans will be coming soon.
