VIDEO GAME: The Missing – Horror With a Queer Love Story

The Missing

LGBTQ horror fans should check out The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories, a new puzzle platform game in which a lesbian woman struggling with her identity has to repeatedly tear her body apart to find her missing girlfriend on a treacherous island.

The plot may sound like a grisly misogynist fantasy, but its twists reveal a surprising psychological depth and thematic coherence that will resonate with some queer gamers.

The game’s first screen announces, “This game was made with the belief that nobody is wrong for being what they are.” Its second screen then warns players of its extreme violence, sexual topics and depictions of suicide — intriguing.

In the game, you play J.J. Macfield, a young woman camping with her girlfriend Emily on Memoria Island, a remote island off the coast of Maine. After a lovely night together by the campfire, J.J. awakens to find Emily missing in a terrible storm.
