You can find some mighty strange sexystuff on the Internet. So a friend told me. I wouldn’t know about that. Not that I’m friends with sex people either. It was someone on the bus. Four rows behind me, okay? Anyway! Amongst the mighty strange sexystuff is the work of Chuck Tingle. The Hugo Award-nominated pseudonymous writer’s short stories include Pounded In The Butt By My Own Butt, I’m Gay For My Living Billionaire Jet Plane, and Pounded In The Butt By My Book “Pounded In The Butt By My Own Butt”, and now he’s working on an FMV game with Zoe Quinn. ‘Project Tingler’ will be pay-what-you-want but has turned to Kickstarter for funds to finish up.
Project Tingler is an FMV date-o-adventure game inspired by the absurd worlds and ideas of Dr. Tingle’s stories. I’m not familiar with his work either intimately or intimately but I’ve heard good things about how warm and friendly the stories are and how eagerly they embrace the absurd as mundane. I do not know anyone who has masturbated to completion to them; I don’t think they’re that sort of story. Unless you’re really into living billionaire jet planes, bigfoot pirates, chocolate milk cowboys, space raptors, gay unicorn bikers, living diners, or constantly changing thoughts on the ongoing mystery of Chuck Tingle’s real identity.
The Project Tingler team is lead by Zoe Quinn, who floated the idea to Tingle on Twitter in January. A few riffs and nine months later, we have bad CG sets with statues of bottoms, studs in smoking jackets, and ripped unicorns in hotpants:
Project Tingler is looking for $69,420 [nice -ed.] on Kickstarter to finish development. The game will be pay-what-you-want when it comes hits Windows and Mac in “early 2017”, but backer rewards include beta access, votes on plot points, and so on.
