The Couple Update makes Haven super gay and exciting to me, specifically

Haven was Natalie Flores’ favorite game of 2020. I never got around to playing it. The game’s free Couple Update has made me more eager to go back and find out what all the fuss was about. Players can now choose to play different versions of Yu and Kay, which allows them to tell the story of a same-sex pair instead of only the one in the main game.

The Game Bakers have confirmed through a posting on its website that playing as a gay couple will not change Havens’ actual plot. It will allow queer people to explore a relationship similar to their own. This was also in line with the original development plans. The team wanted eight different couples. This goal was beyond what the team wanted, but it will hopefully bring the spirit back into the final game.

The blog says that “This update is very special to us.” “Originally, Haven had 8 couples with diverse relationships. We realized that we would not achieve our original vision for the entire cast of characters, so we decided to focus on the two characters we already knew. We got back to work right after the game’s launch to update the game to include alternate couples!

The Game Bakers had two versions of Kay and Yu to make this update a reality. A post on the PlayStation blog explains that both had to share some common traits for technical purposes. You can also specify your body size, hairstyle, or body shape. Ryan Highley and Lexie Ann Kendrick recorded over 80,000 lines of dialogue for Kay and Yu, the gender-bent Kay. Some lines were modified to reflect the gender of the characters, primarily if they refer to their partner using gendered dialogue.
