The second great human country, Ydor, is the kingdom of art. Much more open minded than its neighbor Sarona, you can see openly gay couples, statues of naked men, and drag queens.

There is a steam achievement when playing this game called, “This is my hair, I don’t wear wigs,” that you can unlock if you speak to the drag queen wearing the wig hat, which is a reference to an Alaska Thunderfuck song.

The Warden Game is a text-adventure style game that helps players understand the contradictions of prison life in an age of mass incarceration. Designed by Ed Mead around 1987, while he was incarcerated at the Washington State Reformatory at Monroe, the game explores power in prison and how individuals exercise it. Being a queer prisoner himself, Mead included mentions of anti-sexist education, since in 1977, Mead cofounded “Men Against Sexism” at Walla Walla state prison. MAS used methods such as peer education and direct confrontation to stop the rape and abuse of gay and effeminate prisoners.

The Warden Game was adapted from Ed Mead’s original programming and developed for the web in 2017 by Magdalena Donea and Dan Berger.

Hifumi’s Ending in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc’s School Mode

 

 

Hifumi Yamada is one of the teens trapped inside Hope’s Peak Academy and forced to play the Killing Game. In School Mode, during Hifumi’s ending dialogue, Hifumi references yaoi when Makoto takes Hifumi’s comment about “holding onto him” as weird (found here).

Genocide Jack/Jill and Toko in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc

Toko Fukawa is a teen trapped inside Hope’s Peak Academy and forced to play the Killing Game. Genocide Jack, a serial killer, is her other personality, as she has Dissociative Identity Disorder. Throughout the game, Toko and Genocide Jack both talk inappropriately about multiple characters, but in Chapter 2, Genocide Jack suggests that Hina and Sakura, two other teens trapped inside Hope’s Peak Academy and forced to play the Killing Game, are into “girl-on-girl action” (found here). In Chapter 4, Toko talks about how “disgusting” she thinks Hina is, leading to what seems like Toko thinking of Hina in a sexual way (found here). Both Toko and Genocide Jack seem to worship one of the male characters named Byakuya Togami as their “master” throughout the game as well, in addition to Genocide Jack only targeting “cute boys”, so it is unknown what Toko and Genocide Jack’s sexual orientations are.
