Polish designers Aleksandra Sontowska and Kamil Wegrzynowicz have launched The Beast, a titled pitched as ‘an unsettling erotic game for one’.
For mature audiences only, obviously, the game is played over 21 days and sees the player write a diary recounting a series of sexual encounters with a monster. Stay with me.
Each day, the player draws a card with an event or a question on it. They then have to write down their reactions or answers in the diary. Each card is designed to ‘stimulate associations and invite you to visit unusual and perverse regions of your imagination’.
Themes explored in the game are related to sex, physiology, hidden erotic fantasies, and carnality, and at the end of the game the player must ‘hide or burn the diary’.
So, if you’ve gone through all your Trivial Pursuit questions or find that Cards Against Humanity isn’t looking like cutting the mustard tonight, head to DriveThruCards to get your hands on The Beast ($15).
