Soaked in love, smiles, and comfortably overstimulated, we returned from this year’s Lyst Summit and Game Jam. We noticed quickly that Lyst’s mission to “celebrate Love, Romance, and Sex in Games”, had caught on: These were some rather flirty, rousing 48 hours. In what follows, we’ll report from our experience as Lyst attendants, growing the little game Get Your Rocks On, while also growing more intimate as a team. One thing is to have fun at a game jam doing cool shit. Another thing is to do all that while spending that entire jam flirting, ping-ponging compliments, sensing the other people’s physical presence and building mutual trust. We used Lyst to do just that, and we can recommend it.
