So far the Energy Hook roster is a lily-white sausage fest, though part of that is that the concept art is in black and white. People are already piping up and asking where are the women and people of color for Energy Hook?
You know, I was going to mention something in the last post but it was already getting kind of big and, well, I forgot.
Anyhow, the women are on their way. (Paul drew the guys first is all.) Two of them, to avoid the Smurfette trope. We're trying our best to avoid other offensive tropes, but, hey, dumb males here. Wish us luck.
As for people of color, I think Slim is half-Korean. I'll have to double check with Paul about that. Does that count?
I'd also like to point out we're giving some love to a couple minorities that rarely get any in videogames. I hope people will notice the strides we're making against agism with Papi. Also, that muscle-bound actuary? He's Jewish. Non-practicing, though, like me.
