    Exclamation New profile images are 98% white people, not enough diversity

    Why are the recent profile images available, only white people with a WIDE variety of male/female, young/old, hair colours, accessories, etc. But one female stereotypically Indian, 2 mixed raced women, a random black guy, and an unidentifiable brown-skinned guy. The animals have more diversity than the options for minorities. No Asian representation beyond the one Indian woman. No dark-skin or black women, girls, and boys.

    Perfect job Playrix devs; excluding portions of the population. What was the point of the profile update? To show your “real” intended audience while excluding whole portions of the world? I lived in Japan and we played it there too.

    Maybe if you take out the white woman with purple hair, you would have more room for other ethnicities.

    Hi Nase!

    Thank you very much for your feedback! We sincerely apologize for this oversight and any problems it might have caused you and other players.

    Improving inclusivity and diversity in our games are among our top priorities. However, in this situation, we agree that we failed to fully accomplish that goal. That’s why feedback like yours is essential. Every player should feel comfortable and welcome playing our games, and we’re going to do everything possible to achieve that.

    Yesterday we handed this case over to the Homescapes development team. They will definitely work to improve the profile pictures.

    Thank you once again for your patience and cooperation in making the game better for everyone. If you happen to have any other suggestions or ideas, we’d be happy to hear them below. Have a great day!
