Privates game takes on teenage pregnancy

Games developer Zombie Cow has uncorked a video of its 'Privates' game, an 'educational' shoot' her up in which little, er, things wearing condoms and carrying, er, shooters journey deep inside teenagers' bodies in a mission to eliminate, er, virii.

Or, as Zombie Cow puts it (adopt Little Britain voice): "BRITAIN. Land of Hope and Glory-holes. Where pregnant, waddling teenagers take up the full width of the pavement with their oversized triplet pushchairs, unaware that their rampant, perpetual humping has filled them to the brim with all manner of grotty infections."

Privates is apparently a platform 'twin-stick' shooter in which you "lead gang of condom-hatted marines as they delve into peoples’ vaginas and bottoms and blast away at all manner of oozy, shouty monsters."

"It’s rude, funny, bitingly satirical and technically pretty accurate," is says here (opens in new tab).

The game is funded by Channel 4, in a feigned effort to deal with teenage pregnancy, which is more popular than The X Factor in the UK.

"Channel 4 have been awesome in giving us a load of money and then keeping pretty quiet no matter how filthy and objectionable the content became. It’s gone really well," a spokescow said.

Privates will be available for free on PC this summer from the Channel 4 web site.

Zombie Cow is also trying to get Privates onto Xbox Live Indie Games, but prudes at Microsoft are reluctant, apparently.
