Gal Gun, the Freakish Dating/Shooting Game Hybrid – Weird Wednesdays

Posted on: September 15, 2010

WARNING: The audio on this video is only mildly safe for work!

Alchemist, which is mostly an 18+ port and license company (they released the console version of Koihime Musou, for example), announced one of the weirdest titles in years yesterday: Gal Gun. Based on a pun between Gan (gun) and Gan (eyeball), it’s the heartwarming story of how a regular boy is shot with Cupid’s arrow and becomes mega-popular for a day.

Somehow, this turns into a gun game where you “shoot” girls and they emit hearts at you and moan. Amusingly, most of the comments around this are “Man, this is a stupid idea. Where can I pre-order?” The game comes out this winter for Xbox 360, and it may end up outselling expectations simply because it’s so weird.

Thanks, Japan.

This might trump Doki Doki Majo Shinpan in the “what did I just play” factor.

Well … that was genuinely horrifying. And yes, I do kind of want to see more, out of morbid curiosity.
