Pink White or Blue is a new video game by Esmada Interactive that follows a young person as they navigate the world unsure of where they belong.

In the narrative story, which features some elements of horror, you play a transgender person trying to cope with a binary world.

The game

‘You start Pink White or Blue as a feminine character in a beautiful country ranch, picking flowers and spending time with the horses that roam there. It’s an idyllic life, full of beauty and happiness, but you find pages of a comic book that tell a story of someone having a much worse time than you – and then you start to have visions of their life. There visions are dark and full of pain and physical abuse,’ writes reviewer KJ Robertson for Alpha Beta Gamer.

‘Pink White or Blue goes to some very dark places, but it’s also full of beauty. The artwork is fantastic throughout – whether depicting the beauty of an imagined world or the harsh reality of a real one. There’s lots of clever imagery throughout that alludes to how binary the world is and lots of clever hints as to who the protagonists are.’

Considering the lack of positive queer representation in video games, Pink White or Blue seems like a breath of fresh air. In the past, transgender characters in video games have been poorly represented and/or led to outcry by more conservative gamers.

Watch the trailer of the game, as well as a video of the game play below:
