This has to be one of the most bizarre games ever created and yet it isn’t that bad either. In fact, it could be a fun and addictive game. We’ve seen weird games become a success before, such as Goat Simulator that didn’t have much to do with simulation at all, so maybe the same will work for Who’s Your Daddy.
The title Who’s Your Daddy reminds us more of a line from a cheap softcore movie than a game, but it is a new game. Behind this weird title is a game pits fathers against their babies, yes you read that right, in a 1 vs 1 match where you control either the father or the baby. Your job as the dad is to protect your kid from a horrific and deadly accident in your virtual home, just as in real life, whereas the second player is where it gets bizarre. The second player will control the baby with the mission to try to kill itself before the father can stop it. Now that’s a game principle that we haven’t seen before.
There are all kinds of hazards in a home from power outlets to poison, from ovens to trashcans, and much more, and you can explore all that in this weird game that started out as a fun idea before turning into something marketable.
The game has been successfully funded on Kickstarter, albeit with a small goal, and is now waiting to be greenlit on Steam. If you could see yourself play this game then you should head over to the Steam Greenlight section and vote for it.
Below you can watch the Kickstarter trailer where the man behind the game introduces it as well as some alpha-stage gameplay. Would you play this game or is it just a little too weird for you? Let us know in the comments.
It looks like someone has stumbled upon a rare late Soviet computer mouse. The device is said to have been produced in 1990, but was modelled in 1989, as the documents state. The design is very weird and it comes in red colour (as it would be expected from that era).
The price for this type of mouse is also staggering, coming in at 285 roubles, which was equally translated in US dollars. This would have meant that the mouse in question would have cost around $300 back in the ’90s.
The box states that “It is the most comfortable graphic input device. You can move a cursor or piece of graphics across the screen, paint or use in business”. It even comes with its own serial number written in pen and was under a warranty.
Another odd thing about the mouse is that it comes with its blueprints in the box. But given its price tag, it would be nice to have in case something broke and a piece was required to fix it.
Lastly, the size of the mouse looks pretty realistic compared to a modern mouse, except you can’t really connect it to any modern PC or laptop due to its huge and outdated connector.
We’ve seen loads of cool stories about weird and wonderful things going up for auction here at eTeknix, from the recent Aphex Twin album that Notch bought, the worlds first microchip, 30k BitCoins and even a fully working Apple I computer. They’re what I would personally class as the wonderful stuff, but this new one is certainly going under the weird column.
Between 33 and 5 million years ago a dinosaur stopped to take a massive dump, before moving along and forgetting all about it. Skip forward a few million years and that deposit is on a plinth in an auction house, just waiting for you to make a bid for what could be a truly unique conversation starter next time you have a date over.
Knows as a Coprolite, a fancy word for fossilized feces, the fossil is currently on sale at the I. M. Chait gallery in Los Angeles, California. With the following description on the listing:
“This truly spectacular specimen is possibly the longest example of coprolite – fossilized dinosaur feces – ever to be offered at auction. It boasts a wonderfully even, pale brown-yellow coloring and terrifically detailed texture to the heavily botryoidal surface across the whole of its immense length. The passer of this remarkable object is unknown, but it is nonetheless a highly evocative specimen of unprecedented size, presented in four sections, each with a heavy black marble custom base, an eye-watering 40 inches in length overall. Estimate $8,000-10,000″
So there you have it, a piece of history is awaiting your bid, any takers?
