Seems bold to ignore the crazy new "concept" that all actors suddenly have to be exactly be what characters they are portraying, and then not even something very qualifiable when it comes to "non-binary" has very little meaning at this point. It's ridiculous and to act like everyone should just shut up infers no game development should be critiqued ever.
I can critique their games, but how they run their business isn't of interest to me unless they are grab-assing the employees, not paying them, or otherwise up to no good. If they want to prioritize diversity and those other things, and it works for them, it's not my concern. I'll judge their game on its merits, if it is at all interesting, or ignore it if it isn't interesting.
This article reads almost like parody and you are trying to defend it.... as if you wouldn't have something to say if a right side over the top game was being promoted talking about strict family roles, importance of faith, emphasizing free market, etc.
I'm sure those games exist somewhere, but honestly I'd probably just ignore them in the same way that I ignore most other games. If an AAA publisher was trying to sell a game like that, I might question their sanity as it sounds like a great way to lose money, but if it was an indie studio like this guy? The same rules apply. If they want to make that game, and they aren't doing anything shady or unethical in their business, go for it.
