We got permission to go into a real gay pub in Melbourne for our reference photos, so in addition to the main story, what you see in the game is a small window into some actual gay spaces.”In another video, Miller explains how they designed a cruising beach to resemble Melbourne’s Black Rock Beach.“Black Rock Beach was a real cruising area that became famous in 1977, when it was discovered that the police were training their most attractive, male officers on how to seduce men, and then sending them undercover to make arrests.
