We know of Android games – and have tried them – galore, but none are even remotely comparable to “You are what you eat“. And now we explain why. Reading the name, one immediately imagines something that has to do with cooking, in perfect “Cooking Mama” style. But the reality is very different. The entire gameplay centers around the adventures of a small pink blob, which transforms itself into increasingly complex creatures as it gulps down the organisms it encounters on the road. And so far, nothing extravagant. Except that the players are called to use a vibrator as a controller. Yes, you read that right. To make your character move, you will have to hold a sex toy in your hands. Does that seem embarrassing to you? Or incredibly funny?

The Android game that uses sex toys as a controller, “You are what you eat”

“You are what you eat is an endless runner, where the goal is to eat as many creatures as possible before dying. Starting as a generic slime, you become what you eat and thus acquire new skills. But be careful, what is edible for you depends on the characteristics you have “. So he describes the game Allison Liemhetcharat, who developed it together with his wife and daughter, characterized by a notable passion for food, which then gave the name to the game itself. The intuition of the vibrator as a controller, on the other hand, is due to a particular purchase by Allison, the Lioness, a smart sex toys equipped with “Artificial Intelligence and biofeedback”.

“I bought a Lioness for myself, and I had a lot of fun trying it,” commented the same developer, who decided to link it to something just as fun, like a video game. An intuition reinforced by the fact that something vaguely similar already exists on the market. The peripheral deviceIn fact, it uses some well-designed games for pelvic floor exercises. Of course, Allison’s intent was quite different, but still noble. Once contacted the manufacturer of the Lioness, therefore, she managed to develop an Android game that allowed the vibrator to be used as a controller.

“Whenever the slime eats, jumps, double-leaps or flies, the Lioness vibrates at different frequencies and lengths,” reports the developer herself. As for the commands, however, it will be enough press the sex toy to blow up the blob. While “the double jump or flight requires the Lioness to be crushed, released and then crushed again”. A somewhat hands-on gaming experience, however unusual. In this regard, Allison comments: “Since controlling the blob via the Lioness is considerably more difficult than playing the computer, I reduced the speed of the game and made sure that the game did not end when an inedible object enters the blob”.

In any case, if you don’t have a Lioness vibrator at hand, you can try the game “You are what you eat” even from your browser. But be careful what you feed your blob. After all, the fact that he can really eat everything is not so true. If your character swallows a pink organism, he will not be able to swallow anything blue on the way, otherwise you will end up losing a life. Conversely, if you have a Lioness at home, you can download the game “for free from the Apple App Store (for iOS devices) and from the Google Play Store (for Android devices)“.
