Demons - The 9th Circle of Hell UNLEASHED!” is a game I’ve been developing off and on for many years. It’s been relatively smooth sailing, except for one of our most recent hero designs.
Inara our slightly demonic earth witch/druid isn’t wearing much more than a few strategically positioned plants, and this made a group of people very angry.
First let me address that:
We designed her character like this for a lot of reasons, but probably the most important reason was I believe it accurately reflects her original character design, her back story, and the general disregard for clothing that this relatively powerful, sex positive, feral, earth wielding, demonicly possed earth witch would have.
If you disagree with that, that’s fine, but please understand.. In the posts I make that I’m sharing our creations or asking for feedback, I’m looking for insight I can use to refine my vision, or have an interesting discussion.. not to have someone try to push their ideologies down my throat or insult me.
I believe there’s enough room in the art world for contrasting opinions and I am diametrically opposed to this kind of hateful insistence and sexism. I believe it’s hurtful to the art community, freedom of expression, and art in general. It’s a board game about demons, made for adults. We’re looking forward to sharing our elaborate vision, that we’ve spent years developing, with the world. If your religious ideologies or strict moral sensibilities conflict with a game about demons or demand that all women be dressed a specific way, then this game isn’t for you.
