About This Game

Yearning: A Gay Story (YAGS for short) is a realistic coming-out-focused character-driven slice-of-life visual novel where you play as a gay man starting his freshman year of college at a generic university somewhere in the midwestern United States. The game features dating sim elements, but is not focused on them.

You will interact with a cast of characters, each with their own personality and stories, as you navigate college life, develop friendships, play board games, and come out. With luck, you might even find a boyfriend.



A world where you can befriend people and see events from different perspectives, depending on your decisions
4 dateable guys* with their own distinct stories, with good and bad endings for each guy (9 endings in all*)
230,000+ words and meaningful choices
Collectibles system to track and reward your decisions
Achievements, for completionists
Unlockable in-game character profiles
An original soundtrack featuring "Yearning", the YAGS theme
