The Boob Jam is a game development jam challenge revolving around boobs, to state the obvious. However, this is one of the few times on the internet where you’ll see giant pairs of jahoobies being used in ways that are not overtly sexual. Each game will be designed to take away the focus of breasts as sexual objects; and will tell a story of the challenges and importance of owning them.
Boob Jam was inspired by a Tweet from journalist Jenn Frank, which read:
“What if you had to watch a sexy videogame character also buy bras, cry softly when she can’t find one that fits; and go in for mammograms?”
The Boob Jam Tumblr gives the following explanation for the whole fandango:
Game critics, players, and big-budget developers sure seem to love talking about boobs. It never ends! Are they too big, are they too small, are they not covered-up enough, are the boobs believable for the character…? Oh, and jiggle physics! Jiggle physics are a big deal!
For the rest of us, though, boobs aren’t necessarily playthings for other people. They’re just something we have. We live with “jiggle physics" every day. Sometimes boobs get in the way. Sometimes we have to cut them off. Sometimes it makes walking up the street a chore (since, after all, boobs can be the most salient sex or gender marker). Some of us wish we had boobs; some of us curse the day they arrived. Boobs are actually… kinda complicated!
Clearly boobs are the stuff soap operas are made of.
The Boob Jam will continue until the end of September.
