Aerannis is a title that was mentioned in a few articles about gender and transgender representation because of the badass trans woman assassin protagonist. I am yet to play this game myself, but you only need to look at the Steam reviews to see the positive impact that this game has had on trans gamers (and the handful of negative reviews seem to have more issues with some gameplay clunkiness than with the subject matter). However, there is some controversy around the title that is worth investigating, particularly through its ties to Gamergate. Until I play the game myself, I leave it up to you to decide the value of this game's representation.
