I'm not the best when it comes to #HorrorGames, as in I can't handle the anticipation of something jumping out at my avatar. Controllers go flying, sweat beads up on my forehead, swear words are tossed around casually. Horror games shit me up something silly, but thankfully not bad enough that I'd actually poop myself whilst playing.
But just in case a game comes along that brings with it the promise of activities so bloodcurdling my bowels would be coerced in spewing forth a fountain of feces, #Outlast2 developers Red Barrels has me covered. Quite literally, I must add.
Outlast 2 Has Its Own Brand Of Adult Diapers On Kickstarter
Have you seen the impressive official trailer for Outlast 2?
The Outlast devs have recently dumped a pitch for adult diapers onto Kickstarter. Take that in for a minute. Called 'Underscares', the washable, reusable and hilariously un-sexy incontinence pants have already made CA$ 11,455 towards a goal of CA$ 40,000, which in itself is batshit crazy.
A basic pair of the abrasion resistant pants, crafted by designers close to the devs, come complete with an Outlast 2 Steam key if you decide to shell out CA$ 55 for a pair. However, if you're feeling a little flush, you can opt for a fancy two pairs of deluxe Underscares and two Steam keys for CA$ 75. Not much of a squeeze, that.
And, get this... the big-boy-deluxe pants come with an actual night-light. Useful for when you're aimlessly fumbling around the lightswitch in fear of sullying your carpet out of sheer terror.
Or—it doesn't end there—if you fancy expanding your living space somewhat, for a measly CA$ 6,666 you can get your hands on the actual Outlast chapel that was on display at PAX East. And six deluxe Underscares, six Steam keys and six sewable patches. Why all the sixes? Is there a joke I'm missing?
This hilarious idea got me thinking of innovations that could become second place in a gamer's life if brought to life. Innovations that could greatly improve the duration of peripherals and the wellbeing of others. Things like—
An elastic band attached to a velcro strap that attaches to your arm, or leg, that pings your controller back at you when flung away! Just... make sure you don't throw it too hard or you may end up sporting a mighty black eye...
An unassuming silicone controller cover that dishes out little electric shocks to your buddies' hands in couch co-op! They won't be beating you in #StreetFighterV any time soon...
Are you used to tossing bad words at your games? Now you can do it for charity! Swear Jar is an app that listens in on your profane laments and totals up a cost for each swear word uttered at the screen. At the end of the session, in order to settle, you can donate the fee to any charity of your choosing. Or you get locked out of your console, you filthy mouthed bastard!
You know what? I'm liking the look of Outlast 2, so I may just end up going for a pair of Underscores to go in once I learn just how scary the game is.
What about you?
