Episode 7: Sexuality in Games
In the seventh episode of the Diversi Podcast, we discuss sexuality as it is portrayed in games – be that as narrative content, or something which is expressed in game mechanics. We also speak to the founders of Lyst Summit – a festival and game jam exploring this and other aspects of love and romance. This episode was supported by King.
Please be aware that this episode discusses topics of a sexual nature, and so listener discretion is advised.
