Female characters don’t sell? 8 gaming heroines that could prove otherwise


Nilin – Remember Me

Earlier this week the team from Dontnod, developers of upcoming game Remember Me, spoke about its trouble getting a publisher onboard due to the fact that its main character, Nilin, was female. Dontnod stuck to its guns, however, and we’re glad that it did. Nilin looks to be an interesting protagonist, and is even more of a rarity in that she is not only female, but a woman who, instead of simply being sexualized for the benefit of a male player, is in charge of her own sexuality and has in-game relationships.
