Are you a true bro?

BROTIMES!! was my entry to the 2014 Gender Jam. The purpose of the jam was to make a game based on your personal experiences with gender.

Collect things to balance your self respect with the respect of your bros! Which is more important to you?

I don’t really know how I feel about it, to be honest. I don’t think it says what I wanted it to say very well, and in the end it didn’t end really end up that close to any personal experiences I’ve actually had. But, it’s the first time I’ve ever made a game with a…for lack of a better term…”message,” and it’s the first time I’ve made a game anywhere near autobiographical, so I still count it as a success, at least as a learning experience.

Here are some screenshots (click to enlarge):
