Japanese video game developer Overflow has hit the headlines recently with this strange contraption, pictured on the right. Looks like a can opener doesn’t it? The truth is a little more disturbing than that.
This is in fact a peripheral for their latest video game – Cross Days. Cross Days is a social simulation video game, sequel to Summer Days and part of the School Days anime universe. Usually in these games players will guide the protagonist through social situations in an attempt to get a girlfriend before Valentine’s Day or something equally sugar coated. However, the Days series prides itself in being an erotic social simulation meaning that players actually get to witness sex scenes with the girls they chat up in the game.
And that’s where this device comes in. I’m sure you’ve figured out by now that it’s a sex toy, and can probably figure out how it works. It has been created out of septon (a material mostly used for hospital machinery) and programmed to keep rhythm with the on screen motions during the climax scenes in the game. And as for the attachments that come with it… Well, the less said about those the better. What’s even more disturbing is that this particular series seems to feature multiple murder, suicide and rape endings.
