THE BOOB JAM
Happening till the end of September, Boob Jam has been major online sensation. On the last weekend of September, TAG and mLab hosts a 2-day game jam for all those who would like to create a game. Although you could just make your game form home, we would like to pair people with fellow game-making enthusiasts to create their games over the weekend.
So why BOOBS?
While the game industry has poured millions of dollars into boobs, obsessing over things like jiggle physics and revealing outfits, it has primarily represented them as objects for the straight male gaze. The purpose of The Boob Jam is to make a game that does not treat boosts simply as hypersexualized playthings for straight males, but instead looks at boobs in all their complexity. For example: “What do boobs mean to a new mother, or to a new woman? To a person in actual, physical pain? What might they mean to a real superhero or armor-clad warrior? Or, if boobs really are sexual objects, who, besides straight dudes, can sexualize them?”
