What is ZAGS?

About The Game

Zen: A Gay Sequel (or "ZAGS") is a gay, planner-focused, stat-based, dating sim set in college. It is the sequel to Yearning: A Gay Story ("YAGS" for short), a visual novel about being gay, coming out, and making friends.

If you have not played YAGS, it is recommended you do so before playing ZAGS. However, ZAGS is a self-contained story that can be played without any prior knowledge of the characters or universe.

The demo features:

  • A fairly open storyline -- choose how to spend your time
  • 50,000+ words
  • 3 sexy CGs and 2 bonus images
  • 3 optional (and replayable) minigames
  • A variety of "routes" to follow
  • An original soundtrack featuring "Zen", the ZAGS theme

The final game is currently estimated for late 2021. It is slated to feature:

  • 150,000+ words
  • 12+ CGs and additional bonus images
  • Some number of additional minigames
  • Three (and a half?) full routes, plus plentiful side stories
  • A bunch of unlockable extras, such as development notes and lyric videos

Adult Content Warning

The demo and final game feature content of an adult nature, including explicit gay sex, nudity, alcohol (ab)use, depression, and strong language.

The game's CGs are censored by default, but can be uncensored via an optional (and free) patch. (An uncensored Android build will be available for the full game.)

In addition to the patch, the game features a setting to censor or skip explicit content, for streaming or LP recording purposes.

Why Preorder?

In short, because you'll make the game better, and save some money! This is basically a Kickstarter, except the game is going to be made regardless. This is your opportunity to help improve the final result, score a discount, and get some exclusive extras.

(If you're not comfortable preordering, you can follow game updates on Twitter or this game's devlogs.)

Save Money

The final game will retail for at least $14.99. Preorder to save $5 or more. (Preorder during the first 24 hours to save an additional 10%.)

Help Make the Game Better

All of the preorder money (after fees) goes to the artist for more CGs and art. Your preorder makes the final game better by increasing the number of illustrated scenes in the game.

Get Alpha (and Beta) Access

What You'll Get

You will, of course, receive the final ZAGS game itself when it's released (available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android devices). And yes, the uncensored version will be available for Android, while a patch will be available for all other platforms.

In addition, you'll get access to the ZAGS Soundtrack, featuring Zen (the ZAGS theme), as well as acoustic covers of both Yearning (the YAGS theme) and Zen, plus a couple other bonuses.

You'll also get a PDF version of the ZAGS coloring book that you can print out and color.

While the game is in development, you will also have access to alpha and beta builds. (Coming soon.)
