Always Sometimes Monsters has an interesting character creation sequence, embedded in a sequence of frame stories. As Larry, you choose somebody to 'toast' with from a room full of people, and you become whoever you choose; from here, you can choose whomever you would like to be your partner from another selection of people who are on the patio. Kissing in public when in a same-gender relationship has no negative consequences.

Although any player-character can interact with the world how the player likes, the appearance of the selected player-character does have an impact on how the world treats them. Their gender presentation and race alter dialogue with other characters.
