PAX East 2013 – Foreplay: Romance in Games


Whatever happened to foreplay? People tend to talk (and program) a lot about sex in games and forget all about the delicious build up. But with growing female and non-traditional male consumer bases, game developers are starting to reach beyond the adolescent male fantasy. You can get hitched in Skyrim, have a steamy bath with your lady in Witcher 2, and woo a whole lot of different people in Mass Effect… and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Moderated by Fire Hose Games and When I Grow Up’s Sean Baptiste, writers Miellyn Fitzwater Barrows and Lacy Wilson from Tin Man Games’ romance gamebook series Strange Loves join the hosts of the Press2Reset Transmission Podcast Melissa Kay and Aenne Schumann and BioWare Event Consultant and Rated NA Podcast host Hilary Shapiro to draw back the covers on the sensual side of games and game culture.
