PixelPop Festival Conference Session:

Sex Positive Mechanics in Games

Sunday, 12:30 pm - 1:20 pm CDT (GMT-5)

Conversations around sex and sexuality shouldn’t be shied away from. How can we bring these topics into games? What are the design and safety considerations? How can we design an enjoyable experience that is not offensive and embarrassing? This panel will provide examples of games that have new and unique mechanics inspired by the topic of sex and kink. Robert Yang, designer of The Tea Room, Hurt Me Plenty, and the newly released, Hard Lads, will be joined by Lucian Kahn, co-editor of the “Honey and Hot Wax: An Anthology of Erotic Art Games” (Pelgrane Press), Kat Jones & Will Morningstar, designers of the alien-sex game You Inside Us, and Mary Georgescu and Yuxin Gao, two of the three founders of Eat Melon Studio, publishing the card game, Nothing to See Here!. Together they will review their design inspirations, process, and challenges.
