This week's featured article
Detroit: Become Human is an adventure game developed by Quantic Dream and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for PlayStation 4. It was released worldwide on 25 May 2018, and is widely known for indelicate handling of issues such as racism and the civil rights movement with Polygon's review stating: "But Detroit: Become Human fails to either challenge or reflect upon the ramifications of abuse or the history of the civil rights movement, around which its three storylines cohere." Despite this, D:BH has a large and enthusiastic fanbase.
Fans of the game often disregard the portions of canon they don't like, instead choosing to focus on the parts of the game they found compelling. In practice, this "fuck the canon" attitude many D:BH fans have means AU and canon divergence are both common within fanworks. Since many of the focal characters are androids, All Human AU is common and the sometimes violent nature of the game means Hurt/Comfort is also common.
