This is our Final Reality

'Boob Jam' Game Development Challenge Receives Support
By

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.

    Sooo, I'm à white male, not much I can do about that, and I'm all for it. And in the future, to get rid of any/all debate about political correctness, how about adding a dialogue before engaging à potential sexistic game where you would enter your preferences: I prefer small/medium/large white/black/red/blue male/females! Presto!

    This girl sure does love to talk about her boobs. I think she is even more obsessed with them than some guys. I find it ever so slightly ironic that complaining about the game industries' fixation with boobs, mixed with her own fixation on her own figure, ultimately draws more attention to... boobs.

    Gotta love the recommended articles on this one. "Facebook mistakes woman's elbow for boob", "Google just made it harder to find boobs" and "What doesn't make sense to 3D print"

    This is a stupid idea... if I want reality I'll go outside. I play video games to get AWAY from reality (but want them to look as realistic as possible just not doing everyday tasks). You can really tell that the woman who wrote this proposal for this game is a vindictive, feminist, non-gamer who hates the objectification of women in games. Its going to get a lot of donors because guys will think its about boobs but in reality its about stupid crap that normal women do every day and it will be like going to the mall with your mom to watch her try on bras. No one will enjoy this game and no one cares about the feminist movement anymore... just go away.

    Good luck selling this game, You are going to need it lady!
    Seriously some women out their need to get some, I mean if games came out with men being exploited, Having large dongs dangling around with physics I wouldn't care in the slightest,Actually I think I would laugh and joke about it with mates and make a character just to dangle it around in game showing off the physics. ;) 
    Lighten up lady, It's just entertainment.No one is being named it is just some made up computer generated fictitious character.

    Leave it to a jealously bothered woman to come up with a pointlessly sarcastic idea like this. I never knew smearing "tons of deodorant" all over anything was realistic.

    Male characters in video games don't have to deal with all the real problems either! I think they should make a game where you have to complete a minigame to zip up your pants safely, and you have to scratch your nuts periodically otherwise your itch meter maxes out and you catch fire. Not to mention automatic critical hit if they nail you in the balls. /sarcasm #feministsmakewomenlookbad

    Wait, waait, what?! NOOOOOO!!!!!!

    Lightning's breast size was perfect before!!! And now they're going to be too large!

    I mean, *sigh* Ds? Ds aren't good.... with Ds it's only a matter of time before the ravages of gravity destroys everything. Hell, and with her character getting older, she'd only have a few good years left in her, before it's a situation where she takes her shirt of and it's cringe worthy.

    Damn you Square-Enix! Damn you to hell!

    *cries for Lightning's ruined boobs*

    This is truly tragic, and horrible news. Oh... and some feminist is offended by something again, and made some lame site. Who cares?

    Mavikt, Im just envisaging the scene from the original total recall (not seen the remake yet) where he selects his companion for the memory implant. What a great idea to bring that to gaming :D . Perhaps extending it to any companion characters rather than just a one off "interest" character. My game my story andjust a little bit more my vision...

    Dedicated to the woman who decided it was a good idea to write an article about something that is specifically marketed towards and mostly only affects men:
