GamingThread Wargroove (Chucklefish) is receiving criticism for casting white actors for its POC characters(Dev respond, see threadmark)
Reason User Banned (permanent): Dismissing concerns of representation, history of severe infractions
Not this again... VA actors are not seen or chosen after being seen, it's all in the voice. There countless examples of black people voicing white people, Asian doing white, black doing Asian etc It's a voice. Unless they are doing an African american or african accent, it's not racist. It's not even a discussion of casting more POC, if I am not mistaken in that industry we do not see the same as in Hollywood etc, due to the fact that voices are chosen and not people Still, really dumb presentation by the developer here.
