Blush Box goes to Lyst 2016

Hi, Hello! Welcome!

My name is Kim and I'm part of Blush Box  - an all girl gang of five Australian based video game developers who've joined forces from different parts of the country to participate in Lyst Summit - a summit on romance, love and sex in games.



Aim |
To send all five Blush Box team members over to Lyst summit in Hamar, Norway from the 24th to the 26th of June 2016.



What is Lyst Summit? |
Lyst Summit has two-parts:

Day 1 - Summit
Showcase of innovative talks that link love, sex and romance to games from industry practitioners across Europe.

Day 2 and 3 - Game Jam
48 hour game jam that accelerates collaboration among developers from differing cultures, gender, locations and professional disciplines. In the words of Drake, things will be going 0 to 100 real quick.

Why Lyst? |
- Learn from the summit about how to include topuics of sex and love in games

- Make a game

- Bring it back to Australia to talk about the experience

- Hopefully set up a similar event in Australia

Blush Box see value in participating in Lyst as it connects team members to resources that will encourage and implement love, sex and romance in games. We hope to inspire other Australian game developers to get in on the love train and take a step towards developing mature content of the birds and the bees variety.

In the Australian games industry women are significantly under-represented and topics of sex and romance in games are non-existent. Our team hails from Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Melbourne and each of us play a significant role of advocacy for women and diversity in our communities. By travelling to Lyst and learning from a community that has established a dialogue of feminism and expertise around sex and romance in games, we can bring this back to our own industry and communities.

We really appreciate you viewing our campaign and thank you so much for supporting unique, diverse content in video games!

Meet the Team!
