This is our Final Reality

'Boob Jam' Game Development Challenge Receives Support

The Boob Jam's logo, from theboobjam.comThe Boob Jam's logo, from theboobjam.comThe title of Frank's theoretical game, "Final Reality," is an intentional stab at the upcoming videogame "Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII," developed by Square Enix.

The game is a sequel to "Final Fantasy XIII" and "Final Fantasy XIII-2." All three games star a female ex-soldier codenamed Lightning.

Ata Q & A with the developers of "Lighting Returns" last week (July 27), someone asked the presenters if Lightning's breasts had been enlarged for this game. Chuckling, the developers confirmed that they had, indeed, increased Lightning's breasts from a C cup to a D cup.

What's more, the team added some good old "breast physics" to the game so that, depending on her clothing and armor at the time, Lightning's breasts will jiggle as she fights.

It's probably safe to say that "Lightning Returns" won't feature the titular protagonist searching for properly fitting bras and going in for mammograms.

What is a game jam?
The idea is to "jam," or freestyle-create, a game around a central topic or trend. There's usually a set start and stop time, which forces people to produce ideas and prototypes pretty quickly.

The idea is similar to that of 24-hour theater productions, in which groups of people write, rehearse and stage a play within 24 hours.

Indie Speed Run is one of the more prestigious game jams, in which indie developers have 48 hours to create a game based around a given idea. This year's Indie Speed Run will be judged by well-known game developers, including Kim Swift, Peter Molyneux, Notch and Suda51.

Frank and the other organizers have yet to decide on a date for Boob Jam, though the unfinalized end date for submissions is the end of September.
