“Escape From Pleasure Planet” Brings Gay to Sci Fi Video Games

Escape From Pleasure Planet

The creator of the incredibly named My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant is currently funding a follow-up: Escape From Pleasure Planet.

Escape from Pleasure Planet follows the story of Captain Tycho Minogue as he battles the devilish (and dangerously handsome) criminal Brutus, who he must track down. For Luke Miller, the creator of these gay-themed science-fiction adventure games, there was an easy connection to be made between the nature of both narratives.

“I was looking for gay and science fiction themes that were complementary to each other,” Miller says. “In the gay community there’s often hedonism combined with repression. The kid from the small country town often goes most wild when he moves to the city. In sci-fi there’s often a utopian world with its own terrible secret. Combining the two was an ‘aha!’ moment and I think the twin threads provide a fresh take on each other.”
