This game is a collaboration between myself and an sheep. It’s a game about queer women and the relationships they tentatively build within new spaces.
When we first sat down to write a game together, our goal was to create a game about queer communities, and the ways that those communities are tempered by the world around them. As we talked, as we shared nascent mechanics and premises, it quickly became a game about queer women’s love lives, specifically. It was still about community and the world outside it, but it had also narrowed considerably. “Why queer women? Why isn’t it a game about all queers, or queer men, or non-binary folks?” I’m not sure that we came up with a good answer, other than—it felt like the right choice. It still does.
