Life is Strange: True Colors is out now on PC, and whereas many gamers are having fun with it the newest sport in the Life is Unusual sequence is at the moment getting review-bombed on Steam – seemingly to do with the inclusion of a Tibetan flag in Haven Springs.
Life is Strange: True Colors was revealed earlier this year together with its setting – the small seemingly-idyllic mountain city Haven Springs. One of many shops in town’s predominant avenue is known as Treasures of Tibet, which participant character Alex Chen passes shortly after beginning the sport. Flying prominently outdoors the shop is the Tibetan flag, and it’s inflicting a number of issues for the sport.
At present, Life is Unusual: True Colours is being review-bombed on Steam by Chinese-speaking players upset on the inclusion of the Tibetan flag – which is the image of the Tibetan independence motion and is banned in mainland China. Whereas Steam nonetheless marks True Colours as having ‘Very Optimistic’ evaluations, a major proportion of the sport’s evaluations are unfavourable and from Chinese language audio system.
Whereas there’s no information on whether or not Sq. Enix or developer Deck 9 will reply to this criticism, this isn’t the primary time that Steam customers have review-bombed a sport over obvious Chinese language points. Warframe received negative reviews over the separation of China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan into separate nations within the choices menu, and horror sport Devotion still isn’t available on either Steam or GOG.
This problem apart, Life is Unusual: True Colours remains an excellent and worthwhile new entry within the sequence – and it’ll actually be getting a DLC expansion a number of weeks from now in a prequel story.
