A Rose By Any Other Name

We admit, we’ll jump at any chance to use this screenshot again…

YOU SLAG! YOU COW! YOU SLAG! YOU COW!

Rossignol already talked at length about the simple joys of cat-fighting game, Rose & Camellia, but the exciting news that someone has actually translated it into English deserved another plug. So now, at last, those who would haven’t played it, due to them needing to experience the divine narrative carefully crafted by the modern heirs to the spirit of Gogol with their face-flapping, or it’s just not worthwhile (i.e. Walker, probably) can finally get down with the slapattacks.

Rose & Camellia

By Jim Rossignol on July 18th, 2007.

The Independent Gaming Source regularly blogs come interesting ‘indie’ material, but this Japanese Flash game based around aristocratic feminine face slapping is one of the finest referrals so far.

Translation honours go to Selectbutton who report that:

The plot, according to the text below the game, is that the player girl is a commoner who marries into a noble family. One day after the marriage, her new husband breathes his last—but the pampered harpies running the House refuse to give this low-blood the honor that is her due. There is only one way to resolve the matter!

And that’s flicking your mouse across the screen to pulp the chops an array of snooty harridans. I wish I could offer some kind of critical dissection of this, the slapping game. And yet all I can think is that this is the only game ever to have an oscillating “slapping slider” dictate your attack rate.
