this is so wholesome thank you for the review! I loved reading about your experience playing!
Hot Gay Bro Dragons is a game about declaring your love for a hot gay bro dragon. The gender, orientation, and quantity of dragons are changeable, but the romantic declaration part is not.
Right off the bat, it leads with super strong layout and a gorgeous cover, plus some cheeky bro-dragon-related graphics. This stays consistent throughout, and the pdf is really easy to read.
Gameplay-wise, HGBD is more of a dialogue (you both go back and forth framing scenes) and less of a mechanical challenge. Honestly, it's probably even more accurate to say it's a series of affirmations, since the game directly says that it's less about telling a story and more about expressing love.
For folks who don't want to express love / have love expressed to them, this is a neat design and a cool game to read, but probably not what you're looking to play. For folks who really like both of the above, this is probably a thing you will enjoy playing.
Overall, I'd recommend this on its art/writing/concept alone, and it's especially worth a look if you're interested in romance rpgs.
this is a lovely review, thank you for writing it!
This is amazing and adorable! <3 I'm aromantic and non-partnering but romance favorable so I'll have to try this game out with someone :D
Great stuff! We highlighted this in our podcast on the Bundle for Racial Justice & Equality! Please forgive our atrocious acting
A cute, silly and sweet micro-TTRPG where you play as dragons in love, talking about how much they love each other. If that sounds like your thing, you should definitely check it out. Bonus points for inclusive asides regarding gender and polyamorous relationships! 3/5 stars - enjoyable.
I love the concept, is there any chance of a version of this game made for lesbians with lesbian dragonesses? :D
The rules say "you don’t have to be a boy to play this game, and if He/Him/His pronouns make you uncomfortable you have my permission to change them. If you’re not a boy but you want to be for this game to see how it feels, you don’t need my permission for it, but you have it anyway." Does that help at all? :)
A little, I'm transfemme though so I definitely wouldn't be wanting to try being a boy. Did it for 26 years and it didn't work out for me lmao. I was just hoping for a game with cool lesbian dragons, yknow?
Yeah, I get that. I believe the 'bro' theme is because it was inspired by a set of comics with male characters. However, as it's a game where you make up the details of your characters and their relationship dynamic, you can make them be cool lesbian dragons with no additional effort required. :)
this was so fun to play with my boyfriend!
Bro,,,,I always wanted to be a hot gay bro dragon
I’ll be playing this with my partner, they’ll be likely playing a nonbinary dragon while i’m the boyfreind!! :)) Hahaha this is basically everyday life for me at this point
i'm gonna be a non binary dragon with my boyfriend too :DDDD
this is a very, very fun and silly concept. thank u
