I’ve been seeing more and more about the game Vampyr so I decided to look it up and was excited to see it takes place in 1918, or WWI/interwar London. For me, this is one of the more interesting historical time period not just because of the technological advancements which were being made but also the cultures that now shared the same spaces after a global war.
There were plenty of people of color in London and Europe before the war but the War dragged many more. People of color from all over the colonies, and the United States made their way to Europe and helped shape how these cities would develop, and these new occupants traded ideas on how the colonies would break free from colonial rule.
But in the trailers and gameplay for Vampyr I haven’t noticed any people of color and that would be a real shame and could be missing out on some really interesting storylines. I know they are going for a victorian vibe, even in 1918, but even Victorian London seemingly had more color than Vampyr.
Am I mistaken or is Vampyr ignoring a big part about what made London and Early 20th century Europe so fascinating?
