Xbox exclusives are varied. Some games in the library are shooters, like the Gears of War series, while others are pure simulators, like Microsoft Flight Simulator. In this diverse library, Tell Me Why, which we reviewed, is an interesting addition. It is an episodic adventure title, much like the Life is Strange series. Fun fact, Life is Strange developers Dontnod Games are the guys behind this title as well.
What is Tell Me Why?
Tell Me Why is a narrative adventure game told in episodes. It was released in three episodes from late August to early September 2020 and focuses heavily on the story. In our review, we described it as:
The entire game does not portray a single gunshot, but the story will linger in your hearts much longer than any Call of Duty or Battlefield game.
The game focuses on a pair of twins who reunite after a decade. After they find out their supernatural power, the voice, which they mistook as a childhood fantasy while growing up apart still works, they decided to find out the exact cause of their mother’s death. The game is a mix of supernatural elements like replaying memories and being able to share thoughts with very worldly concerns and problems. These include recognition of the LGBT community, financial issues, and struggles of a single mother.
Tell Me Why is based on a small town in Alaska, named Delos Crossing. The game manages to capture the feel and vibe of small-town life pretty well.
Why is Tell Me Why Given Away for Free?
Dontnod Games’ creations are much different from the daily sauce available in the market. All of their games criticize a current mindset prevalent in modern society and attack it in superb ways. Their games act as a wake-up call for the players. Tell Me Why is no exception. The game targets several prevalent issues in society, with one major concern being the acceptance of LGBT individuals by their families and society in general. Thus, on the occasion of Pride Month, the game is given away completely free of cost in June every year since its release. This is done to increase concerns regarding the issues.
