Sometimes games are serious and tell stories that are emotional, compelling and shift the way we see the world. Other times, they are simply fun and entertaining, letting us embrace a sillier side. These indies seem a bit off the wall, but I’m still intrigued.
First up is Stick Shift, a free game that you can download on PC, Mac and Linux. What is it? Well, in an attempt to expand eroticism in games beyond a cutscene, it makes sex something you do instead of something you obtain. But don’t worry, it’s still safe for work:
There is no human nudity in this game at all, but there are plenty of hot naked gay cars, big swollen exposed gear sticks, and oozing exhaust pipes.
I… I may need to download this. For research purposes. And because it just sounds too silly to miss out on. Also, I’m wondering how we know the cars are gay. What makes them gay, or is it simply because you’re a male driver playing with a stick?
Meanwhile, over on Kickstarter, the creator of Drinking Quest has a new tabletop RPG, told entirely through Haiku. For those who don’t remember from school days, a Haiku is a Japanese poem of 17 syllables (5, 7, 5). It’s a nice contrast to the obnoxious tone of Drinking Quest.
Twenty-eight days left
Haiku Warrior needs you
Give it your money.
I’d stop doing this
But now I’m totally hooked
Wish me luck today.
