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 full game features:

  • 240,000+ words
  • 24 sexy CGs and 13 bonus images
  • 12 optional (and replayable) minigames
  • Four (and a half) romantic routes, plus plentiful side stories
  • A bunch of unlockable extras, such as development notes and lyric videos

Adult Content Warning

The demo and full 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 is also 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.

Supplemental Stories

A series of Companion Fics are available for free reading, which expand on the stories in ZAGS similar to YAGS' Companion Fics.

You can access them on the ZAGS website here. It is recommended that you complete the game at least once before reading any of them.

You can also check out the entire YAGS-verse, including additional games and writings in the series.

What You'll Get

You will, of course, receive the full game itself, for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android devices. (And yes, the uncensored version is available for Android, while a patch is 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.
