“I’m watching a musician, with whom I’ve been intimate, play an intimate musical game on his smartphone,” Jordan Erica Webber reports for The Guardian. “As he lightly circles his finger and the music swells, the screen reddens and so do I. This is perhaps the first time I’ve been turned on by a video game – and I’m not even playing it.”
“This is La Petite Mort, a touch-based game described as a ‘one of a kind digital erotic experience’ by its creator, a small Danish studio named Lovable Hat Cult,” Webber reports. “The concept arose after a discussion at the Copenhagen Game Collective. This is a network of experimental developers responsible for the annual romance and sex-themed Lyst Summit and other boundary-pushing projects such as an adult colouring game. The hope is that La Petite Mort will be the first in a budding genre: female stimulation simulation. I am totally onboard.”
“La Petite Mort is made up of a series of audio-visual landscapes and each is an image of a real vulva, pixelated to abstraction. Through the algorithm, the different pixels of each vulva have different preferences, but the sensation will emanate outwards. ‘So if one cell feels good, it kind of spreads the pleasure to the cells around it,’ says the game’s producer Andrea Hasselager,” Webber reports. “As a player, if you touch an area in the right way, you can see that pleasure spread on screen as the cells light up, blossoming from the stimulated point. You can draw lines of pleasure or expanding circles, until the whole screen fills in a pulsing climax.”

MacDailyNews Take: This game and Apple’s reaction to it are both, uh… stimulating.
