In a historical-fiction game (I understand this is not a popular genre) where you play as a child of a real-life historical monarch and their real-life historical spouse, would you be okay with playing as a character of the race and ethnicity of that particular ruling family?
That was purposely written to be vague so you can substitute any historical empire/nation into the question, so it could potentially also help other people who might be wondering the same thing, but i do actually have a specific time + setting + historical ruler in mind (Genghis Khan) , as I’ve been working on a game for a month, but I hadn’t thought to ask this question until now.
How do you feel about a set ethnicity/race in this specific type of games?
- I would give it a chance
- I wouldn’t play it
Thanks for reading this post!
