Trivia / Yearning: A Gay Story

Go To

  • Development Gag: There's an option in Preferences to show the (comically bad) placeholder or stick figures used in the game's beta versions instead of the completed sprites in the final version.
  • Follow the Leader: The creator cited Coming Out on Top as the main inspiration for this game, which has a similar premise of a gay man coming to terms with his sexuality and potentially finding a boyfriend during his college years.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Carlos was originally named Juan until the creator decided it looked too similar to Jake and James's names.
    • The creator had the idea for an ending where Carlos attempts suicide and leaves you if you choose to forcibly out him in public, but ultimately decided it was too dark for the kind of game he ended up writing. The companion fic "No Way Out" explores what that ending may have been like.
