"For the past few years, I have been trying to learn how to do all the various creative and technical things that go into making a video game - programming, graphics, interface, writing, gameplay design - in addition to music and sound, which I do for a living. The 2013 Global Game Jam was this past weekend, and over two sleep-deprived days I completed my first solo project: A game for OS X and Windows where you punch spaceships with your dick. (Probably safe for work, unless your boss considers it inappropriate to see a pink laser beam with a boxing glove on the tip which shoots out of a giant robot's groin.)"[via mefi projects]

Do the spaceships also punch you in the dick?

Congratulations for getting your dick...hand on the front page. I did play around with it.

Who needs a good cock-punching?

I almost beat the game, but my, uh, flexible cleaning apparatus got stuck in the boss's pincer.

Awesome work! I enjoyed being told to press the "dick" key to continue.

Another datapoint for the great "videogame cause ???????????" debate.

"DICKHAND_1.0_PC.zip is not commonly downloaded and could be dangerous."

I'll keep that in mind thanks Chrome.

I was thinking of making some kind of hipster joke about Google Chrome and viruses, but I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader

No, you misunderstood. It was Punch 'em in the dick.

I love the *cough* dick physics. I don't think I've seen a shoot em up with physical weapons you whip around. It made the second half feel much different than the first, using the... dick's flopping movement to avoid and deflect, instead of punching em with the dick. A strong mechanic, new to me and interesting. Needs power ups!

Yes, finally a game that teaches what some of us have known for years -- having a dick you can wrap around to the other side of your body sounds useful and can be quite entertaining, but it also might get in the way more often than not.

This was awesome fun, though I was not wrong in assuming I'd put it on my desktop and forget to remove it before sharing my screen with a co-worker. That DICKHAND folder might as well have been bold and flashing.
