Being a Gay Superhero Means You Have to Punch Women?
Klicrainbow has released a new game for the iOS called Super Gay, which appears to be the first gay adventure games for Apple platforms. In it, you become a scientist who uses his latest invention to become the greatest “…superhero of all modern times: Supergay.”
Leaving aside the fact I thought that position was already held by Neil Patrick Harris, the game has you use things like Gay Power and Rainbow Ray to complete puzzles, dance at a stag party, stop nuclear war and — punch out all of your ex-girlfriends?
Reading a lot of comics, I don’t have a problem with heroes of whatever gender beating each other silly. That’s part of the fun. But for whatever reason, it strikes me as decidedly odd that the first adventure Supergay goes on, the first game this Barcelona-based firm created, involves stopping his evil Ex-Girlfriend and her clone army from taking over the world.
Am I reading too much into this?
The trailer for the game is below. More about the game is available at Supergay.com and at the Borg Collective, iTunes.
You know, Supergay has quite a resemblance to Neil Patrick Harris….
