Romance Options: Game Writing for Gay, Bi, and Straight Audiences

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Date Nighto's Kasey and Conrad are experienced speakers on the subject of visual novels, having fronted a panel discussion at Connecticon 2014. Our previous game release, Starfighter: Eclipse, was based on Japanese-style yaoi games, but we received amazing responses from both women and gay fans.

We've also presented at TCAF 2015's Comics vs. Games 4, where we got audience response and thanks for making visual novels featuring gay and genderqueer characters. Hustle Cat, our upcoming release, stars a main character whose appearance and pronouns will be player choice.

SPECIAL GUEST: Arden Ripley is an interactive fiction author who loves playing and creating dating sims and visual novels about empathy and relationships. Date or Die is a visual novel coming out in 2016 about romance and murder. 

Date Nighto the company is committed to carving out creative space for marginalized voices, and we think the audience at GX3 wants to hear about our upcoming titles and how we're prioritizing visibility for all gender presentations and sexual identities.
