Paris. Prague. Pyongyang. Some of the world’s most romantic destinations, except the last one. I dunno, but an erotic holiday in the worst totalitarian state this side of Nineteen Eighty-Four doesn’t seem like much fun unless public surveillance, forced labour, government-approved hairstyles, and other egregious crimes against humanity get you hot. But hey, if that’s your thing, and so what, that stuff is all capitalist propaganda anyway. Let’s make love, not nuclear war.
First launched on Kickstarter late last year, DEVGRU-P’s Stay! Stay! Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is a dating sim from the same guys who made Panzermadels, a dating sim about “tanks, and the men who date them”. So, um.
“Try and navigate your way through one of the world’s most tightly controlled dictatorships, with two cute soldiers by your side,” reads the game’s blurb on Steam. “Avoid getting shot, executed, black-bagged, or tried for treason as you explore Pyongyang’s most famous tourist attractions.”
The point of the game, apparently, is to bang one of two sisters, Jeong or Eunji, supported by innovative features like “one-handed gameplay”. So you can use the other hand to eat kimchi, obviously.
Also, according to its system requirements list, “you could probably run this thing on a toaster”, so even people in the DPRK could play this game. If they had internet access. Or toasters.
