The Hunt for the Gay Planet was created in 2013 as a jam game in response to BioWare's addition of a paid DLC "gay planet" to Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. It's a silly pulp sci-fi romp through themes of media representation, queer visibility and assimilation.

SPICE LEVEL: This is not a sex game, but has a peppering of erotic imagery consistent with a racy pulp adventure story.

PAID DLC: Pay at least $1 for access to the desktop version and a print-and-play Choose Your Own Hunt for the Gay Planet zine, featuring a secret bonus mission and cover art by A.E. Stokes.

DISCLAIMER: I wrote this over a decade ago, don't get mad at me about it.

Fuck the IDF. Free Palestine.

I thought this was pretty funny and enjoyed it! I didn't know about this whole Old Republic controversy either? It was good to read up on the context and stuff. We've come a long way with media representation, so it's kind of interesting to see the same kind of pearl-clutching retorts we have even now to this like small, caged off, lean-meated portion of a game that contains representation. Hopefully stuff will keep changing for the better and we'll make longer strides than we did in the decade since the "gay planet" blipped up on the navigator.

wow, blast from the past :)
