As happy as I am about more games with options for LGBT+ relationships, not so happy about the brothel setting that seems to be used as if it were as simple as a wrestling or regency setting.
FIrstly if this is historical, then sex workers were unlikely to have free-choice. If it’s set in current times…sex work is a complex issue, regarding the need for improved safety and rights of workers, but also to tackle the human trafficking and sexual exploitation happening in the first place.
Either this game is going to ignore how most people are forced to go into sex work due to poverty, or deceived, coerced, groomed and exploited into sex work (neither are the same as free choice), or it acknowledges it within characters’ back stories but then you’re literally placing the player in a role that is part of the system supporting sexual exploitation.
Also if have relationship with one of “ladies of the night” could ignore the impact of said issues. It’s less likely an independent sex worker would be in a brothel, so someone whose been sexually exploited would be in a vulnerable position and the sword woman would be taking advantage of them. I don’t think a brothel is a good setting to show positive healthy representations of relationships.
I know that some people do chose to do sex work freely, I’m not saying that that is wrong in itself, but I think it’s really insensitive of Choice of Games to make a game based in this setting so casually.
