Love, sex, and sexuality are becoming more and more popular themes to explore in games, from mobile titles to AAA blockbusters to indie darlings and everything inbetween. What can we learn from games existing in this space, and what lessons are still to come? In this roundtable, the IGDA Romance and Sexuality SIG will host open discussion on recent trends, future possibilities, and current challenges to creating games with romance and sex, touching on topics from designing romance for non-traditional games to exploring the changing marketplace for adult games.


Attendees will take away a better understanding of current and future trends regarding romantic and sexual content in games, first-hand advice and lessons on developing this content, and connection to a community of like-minded developers and critics.

Intended Audience

This talk is intended for game designers, artists, writers, marketers, and publishers, as well as any developers or academics interested in themes of love and sex in games.
