My fingers move in slow circles, gently at first. Chunky pink and red pixels flush under my touch. The music builds.
I get a rhythm going, learning what makes the ambient sounds swell and soar — and avoiding the rushed, rough strokes that bring everything to a halt. The beat kicks in, the colours pulse. Last month Apple banned the game from its app store. Just the idea of touching a sexual organ was a problem.
Jarnfelt and Hasselager are at the centre of a growing community of developers who are making games that explore issues around sex and sexuality. The third Lyst event took place in Hamar, Norway, last weekend. In the pair were co-creators of Dark Room Sex Gamein which two players swing Wii remotes back and forth in an escalating rhythm to reach a musical climax. The idea for La Petite Mort came to Jarnfelt when he was playing around with cellular automata— abstract models that can simulate complex systemssuch as living things, just by following a simple set of rules.
Jarnfelt got his automata to respond to touch — and immediately saw the erotic potential. People play the game quite differently. Others prefer to go off and sit by themselves.
New York-based developer Robert Yang has also explored intimacy — and the awkwardness that often goes with it — in dozens of games. Yang makes games about gay men that are often tongue in cheek and funny, but they address serious issues. But Yang presents intimacy as a process in itself, one that is inherently risky. Games can help teach us about consideration and consent. Like Jarnfelt and Hasselager, Yang has had his games banned from certain online distribution services. He cannot sell his work through Steam, the largest online games store and he is not allowed to use the payment processing service PayPal.
Such companies have a relatively conservative policy about what they deem pornographic. Even asking for donations puts me in danger of getting banned from PayPal. We have a problem with prudishness when it comes to games, says Ellison. Sexual content is more common in films and on TV than ever and books like Fifty Shades of Grey are mainstream bestsellers, yet attitudes about sexual content in games have not caught up. Many people still think games are for kids, says Jarnfelt.
Ellison feels similarly.
She also thinks many people are still uneasy about games because of their interactive element. There is more to interactivity than pressing buttons to move hips, she says. Games are obsessed with violence because players find it entertaining. But we also like sex, says Yang.
