- Lead designer Llaura McGee and head of the studio Dreamfeel, is a transgender woman.

- The team behind If Found is composed of many queer, transgender and nonbinary developers.

- The game presents players with a significant choice in the late half of the game. This choice and varied positive possibilities is used to express queer agency.
