First-Post Quiz: Playable Female Characters

Here are 103 faces of playable female characters in adventure games. None of the characters I’ve already used as my avatar appear in this quiz.

You get two points for the name of the character and the name of her game. However, if she features in more than one game, like April in TLE and Dreamfall, the name of the series is sufficient. The only bonus character is worth three points if you can tell me why this pic is different from the rest.

Not all female characters in this quiz are protagonists, but every single one of them is controlled by the player at some point. One or two ladies are “remarkable”. Sort of. Shifty Eyed Who cares… we love them! And a couple are nameless.

To the best of my knowledge, all pics are from commercial games.

I hope people will be interested in participating in a first-post quiz for a change, so three guesses per round to start with. In spoiler tags please.

Ooh, a picture quiz I might not be completely awful at.

So:

37. Razor, Maniac Mansion
69. Erica Reed, Cognition
98. Valanice, KQ7

(Could people put the numbers outside of the spoiler tags? Makes it easier to see what’s already been guessed.)

By the way, Awesome Quiz Thumbs Up This is why I love adventure games - so many awesome playable female characters compared to other genres of gaming.

8. Dominique Pamplemousse - Dominique Pamplemousse in “It’s All Over Once The Fat Lady Sings!”
17. Samantha Everett - Gray Matter
29. Ashley Robbins - Another Code


Do I get a bonus point for claiming Dominique Pamplemousse is “remarkable” because she’s actually androgynous and can be played both as a male and as a female character? Tongue

Kurufinwe, you can have one more guess, as you obviously posted just after wilco and hadn’t seen his guesses yet.

LOL! Nooooo… but thanks for reminding me of Dominique’s remarkable feature.

PS: It struck me just now that there are a disproportionate number of redheads in the quiz.

Thanks. Smile I didn’t even notice afterwards that we’d posted the same thing.
