I'm disappointed, but not surprised.
I just want to add that we did not take this decision lightly. The idea was to have princes as well as princesses with their own individual storylines, and the player couldn’t just be a male or female Dragon Knight; he or she could also opt for a same sex marriage. As per usual a lack of budget and time - not intent – sent these ideas packing.
I hope you’ll enjoy playing the game nonetheless, because we’ve infused our princesses with a lot of personality and they each have detailed and branching story arcs. I am very much trying to make sure that as a player you’ll feel like you’re talking to real women, not trophy wives to be won by the commander. Here’s hoping I more or less succeed!
