BL and Queer Games Showcase: The 2018 Edition

Sweet Pool
by Nitro+CHiRAL

Localized by JAST USA and translated by Verdelish, Sweet Pool is probably N+C’s most obscure title, infamous for the protagonist’s “meat babies”.

Yaoi Game Jam 2018

The YaoiJam is an annual game jam in which game devs create a queer-themed game in the span of 2 months. Some entries are complete projects like Yarrow Valley, while some are demos and prototypes for longer projects, such as Metamorphoser and Sexylitter. And a few ones are the Act 1 of a longer series, like Star Crossed (pictured).

Bara Jam 2018

Hosted by Soulsoftea, the Barajam is another game jam that made its debut this year. Besides the beef, the BaraJam entries also offer different styles of narration and ideas, whether comical like Earth Boys are Easy, or more serious like Blood and Lust (pictured), that you may not have found in the Yaoi Game Jam.


A few titles, like Monstrous Lovers, Chasing the Stars and Full Service that were originally planned to come out during 2018′s last quarter were delayed for various reasons. Hopefully they’re nearing completion and will come out in 2019!

And that closes the 2018 showcase! Hope you try out some of these and tell their creators or translators what you think! :D
