If you play enough games, you come to expect what is, in essence, the same rotepredictablehyper-masculine cockfightsonly reskinned to varying degrees of grittiness. But one game has flipped that script in a way no other game ever dared to. The ridiculous comedy game Genital Jousting by Freelives makes the cockfighting literal, and in the process, creates one of the most cathartic, challenging, provocative, and liberating play experiences in recent memory.

Perhaps we are about to see a new aesthetic era of sport, when rich heraldry and Arthurian imagery will replace relentless commercialism.

For more than a year, Free Lives, a video game studio based in Cape Town, South Africa, have been working on a game about jousting penises. It's called Genital Jousting —the title really cuts to the chase—and early versions of the game look equal parts goofy, uncomfortable, and gross. If you're in a place where you can watch a video where cartoon dicks with anuses under their scrotums wear goofy clothes and ram into each other, you kind of have to see this for yourself.
Kindness, merely as such, cares not whether its object becomes good or bad, provided only that it escapes suffering…. It is for people for whom we care nothing about that we demand happiness on any terms: with our friends, our lovers, our children, we are exacting and would rather see them suffer much than be happy in contemptible and estranging modes.

Everybody plays as a creature made of male genitalia in this game: a flaccid penis, a pair of inflated testicles, and an anus. You score a point in each round for either being penetrated—another player inserting their penis into your anus—or penetrating someone else. If you manage both in a single round then you get two points.
