Fragments of Him features two queer men—one gay and one bisexual—who are in a relationship together. The game centres around their relationship, as well as their relationships with friends and family. The game was poorly received by respondents to the Queer Representation (2016) survey, who disliked the way sexuality was represented within the game. To these respondents, it felt as though the game was positioning being gay as a burden, with the narrative focusing on the impact one character sexuality had on the many other, straight characters.
