Byne by Markreel Games 

Byne is a 3D puzzle/adventure game with a symbolic narrative about gender and the binary configuration of our society. In the world of Byne, gender doesn’t exist. Instead of being male or female, people either have fire powers or water powers. Byne follows the journey of a non-binary person growing up with fire powers, who must find their own (gender) identity.

This demo focuses on the first part of their journey, in which they are metaphorically being taught to live by certain gender norms. By confronting the player with the absurdity of gender norms, Markreel Games hopes to invoke empathy and make the player question their understanding of gender as a concept.
