Tell Me Why tells the story of twins Tyler and Alyson as they reunite, after several years apart, to sell their childhood home in Alaska – a task that ultimately forces them to confront their traumatic past. The twins then share a supernatural bond that allow them to telepathically communicate with each other, and experience visions of past events. Tell Me Why broke new ground as the first triple-A game to feature a transgender lead character – Tyler – and handle sensitive issues related to their identity.

In honour of Pride Month, Dontnod’s spooky mystery adventure Tell Me Why is available for free download on Xbox One and PC (through the Microsoft Store or Steam). For the same reason, all episodes of the game were also free at this time last year. While the first episode is accessible for free all year and the entire game is available on Xbox Game Pass, it’s fantastic to be able to buy the entire game and enjoy it whenever you want.
You can download the game directly on your Xbox or through the Xbox or Steam apps on PC, or hit the link. Xbox Publishing is also donating $25,000 USD each to Transgender Law Center and Trans Lifeline, two non-profit organizations offering resources and support to trans, non-binary, and genderqueer people. It’s also hosting a livestream of Tell me Why to fundraise for Trans Lifeline on June 23.
