Indie Power Hour: Yearning, A Gay Story – Finding Love and Acceptance With Yourself And Others

Indie Power Hour is a show which focuses on new and upcoming indie games. In each episode, GameLuster writer Chloe Spencer will discuss the basic facts and elements of the game, as well as demonstrate one hour of gameplay. The goal is not to play a game to completion, but rather highlight interesting projects viewers might not have known much about.

In this episode, Chloe plays Yearning: A Gay Story, also known as YAGS. This free LGBT visual novel recently released last week and has already accumulated over 500 downloads from itch.io. Set in the year 2006, you play as a college freshman who is coming to terms with his sexuality, as well as navigating the most intimidating aspects of university. The choices that you make determine the outcome of the story — and who you’ll end up with.

This game is available for free on itch.io.
