New trailer for Ultimate Gay Fighter, the "world's first ever gay video game"

Developers release new video for upcoming Mortal Kombat-inspired fighting game that features "gaytalities."

by

Developer Handsome Woman has released a new trailer for the Mortal Kombat-inspired mobile game Ultimate Gay Fighter, which the New York City studio calls the "world's first ever gay video game...ever."

The trailer introduces players to some of the villains they will fight, including the political pundit Anne Paylin, Maxx 2.0, and Preach, who appears to be modeled after a Christian fundamentalist. The video also includes a reel of "Sh*t Ultimate Gay Fighters Say," which includes lines like "Death by scissors! and "Move in with Me," as well as "That belt, those shoes? Bad idea!"

Ultimate Gay Fighter was originally announced in November and will launch this month for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone devices. It features 12 levels, achievements, and online leaderboards, In addition, the game riffs on Mortal Kombat's famous "fatalities" by allowing players to perform "gaytalities."

Instead of blood, rainbows and unicorns will flow from player's bodies when attacked. When a player is victorious, a prompt appears that says, "You win! Congrats, slut."

According to creator Michael Patrick, Ultimate Gay Fighter began as a joke over drinks at brunch one day. The concept is to reenact classic fighting games but add gay characters with moves that suit their "specific lifestyles and interests."

"I started thinking about how gays are represented in the media. We are the sickly ones, your sassy best friends, the funny ones, the ones who sing, and the ones who decorate your house, style your clothes, and do your hair," Patrick said. "We are never the kick-ass fighters, the bad-asses who rescue you and save the day. And if we are, we are washed with heterosexual personas and mannerisms."

Overall, Patrick described Ultimate Gay Fighter as a "love letter to my gay family."

"You can be queeny, you can be butch, or you can be in-between. You can be any or all the bandana colors and the colors in the rainbow flag. But no matter what color, we are fighters. We are warriors. The goal of this game is to enjoy the humor that my gay family brings me. Now go out there, and kick some ass."

Any game where religious fundamentalists are the bad guys at least gets something right.

@darkrayne Well, Killer Instincts , Mortal Kombat,  Street Fighters ,DoA, Tekken, and Soul Caliber are all made for real men.

@nparks Amazing how if someone disagrees with stuff like this they are considered bigots.  Yet it is ok for people who oppose religion to bash those who are religious.  Hypocrisy.

@Riddick123 I respect your right to believe whatever ridiculous nonsense you want.  Doesn't mean I have to agree with it or refrain from commenting on it, just like you are free to comment on the subject.  The biggest difference is that your position has no conceivable rational basis and is actually being used to deny a class of people equal rights and dignity today.

@Riddick123 Yeah. I don't disagree with this at all. But the reason, I believe, is due to the religious majority, and how they've handled change over the years. Not saying it's right, just that I think it's the way it is.

@Riddick123 It's the old "the way I think is the right way, if you don't agree you are wrong" way of thinking.  I personally don't practice, believe or care for religion at all, but I do respect peoples choice to believe in it if they do.  I will never argue it, I just don't believe in the whole "invisible man in the sky" thing. :D
