Hideo Kojima going to make LGBT visual novel?

'Adventure Game' in Japan is 'visual novel' to the west; though I'd be pleasantly surpised if he makes a western-style adventure game.
He said he was going to violate some 'taboo' and they did mention "moe boys" so it could be shounen-ai?

All in all, I think this is only a good thing to expanding the medium, just like VN-based anime did.

edit: The more I read, the more it seems like it will be a Snatcher/Policenauts-like classic point n click or Look/Interact type game with puzzle elements.

Where do you get LGBT from?

They're just saying that they'd like to try something different from the otaku bait that dominates the genre - in short, an absence of strong moe or fujoshi appeal. I'd guess that it'll be a typical Kojima story with a more interactive adventure design.

I think your reading between the lines, he didn't condone the sorts: moe boys-neither bishoujo, curious to see what it's about=, however.
