Seed of Destruction
It's a common complaint that mainstream games tend to wallow in the stagnant intellectual waters of the power fantasies of adolescent boys. Has anyone stopped to look in the sketch books of those pre-men?
Florian Himsl has.
What did he find there? He found the Seed of Destruction. He found a stick-man cowboy riding a monstrous sperm on a rampage against bystanders and soldiers with grenades and bazookas. He found attack helicopters and jets doing impossibly tight loops at speeds far too slow to realistically work without stalling the craft. He found sketchy, wanton destruction for those who come too close to the gamete's flailing tail.
Push right or left arrows to turn, down to slow your raging beast, and forward to use your limited speed boost. Health regenerates if you spend enough time away from the fray. Cause enough death and unfortunate loss of expensive military equipment and you'll not only unlock new enemies, but a set of mini-games, such as grenade-juggling.
Why You Should Check This Out: Certainly open-world ultraviolence in games like GTA 4 and ProtoFamous can appeal to a rather low-brow demographic. But that's still Uwe Boll or Judd Apatow, when it could be keyboard cat and Dumbass. This is truly a game not just for the masses, but of the masses.
But beyond the obviously ridiculous "narrative" elements, the art is truly charming, and certainly looks like it was taken directly out of my 6th grade sketch book, and then animated as if it were a music video for A-ha. It's the kind of game that reminds us all of the danger of the young male libido, and perhaps the importance of proper prophylactic measures.
