Kouvola-based Lizard Hazard Games have launched their successfully Kickstarter-funded title Your Royal Gayness, a story-driven parody game with a strong message about accepting sexual diversity, on Steam.
“The subject of Your Royal Gayness is very personal to me,” says lead developer Salli Loikkanen. “I’m a queer woman and while I’m fortunate to have lived in a very accepting environment, discrimination and LGBT+ issues aren’t new to me. Even though Your Royal Gayness is ‘just a game’, I hope that in some small way it can spread awareness about gay issues.”
A management game with a story focus, players shape the path of “Prince Amir”, from problems in the kingdom and decisions that affect resources to thorny relationship issues.
“Even though Your Royal Gayness has a serious background message, the game is far from being serious. Humorous writing from industry professionals make sure that everyone with ‘a queer sense of humour’ will love it!” adds Loikkanen.
