Sperminator Almost Ready to Go Again

October 27, 2010 -

Earlier this year we told you about an online game featuring a penis-armed villain that was designed to educate kids on the perils of sexually-transmitted diseases. That game, Adventures in Sex City, has proven so popular that a sequel is in the works.

Created under the direction of London, Ontario’s Middlesex-London Health Unit, the original game featured the characters Captain Condom, Power Pap, Willy the Kid and Wonder Vag, and had players answer sex-related questions in order to repel the seed of the evil villain, and sufferer of a sexually transmitted infection (STI), dubbed the Sperminator.

Planning for part two of the game is already underway, as Cnews reports that eight youths have been recruited in order to participate in focus groups and education sessions that will lay the groundwork for the new content. The Health Unit stated its youth advisors “directly influenced” all aspects of the original game.

Health Unit manager Shaya Dhinsa said that response to Adventures in Sex City was “very strong,“ and added, “We have had literally tens of thousands of people play and many have told us they’ve learned a lot from answering the questions that are the basis for the game.”

All this game needs is a catchy theme song.

Re: Sperminator Almost Ready to Go Again

Makes me think of the porno version, which was also calle "Sperminator."  The tagline was, "I'll come again!"

Re: Sperminator Almost Ready to Go Again

As much as this is educational I have been laughing the entire time.  The hero names...the title of the article?

I guess since they are the only folks to do a game like this they don't face any stiff competition.  It will be a long hard road ahead of them for this kind of education to be mainstream but with this success they have yet to reach their peak.  I just hope they don't blow it.

Yeah, I clicked through solely to leave a comment expressing my amusement at the article's title.  Good show, nameless Gamepolitics editor.

Andrew EisenIt's called The Bar-Arcade? Missed opportunity. I would have gone with Barcade.08/20/2014 - 3:25pm
SleakerThe Bar-Arcade however did have a lot of good pinball machines, they were however always taken as the place was packed..08/20/2014 - 1:17pm
Sleakerso I've been to an Arcade-Bar, not that great of a place has some okay machines, but generally over-packed. And then all the kid-friendly ones have is ticket-games nothing actually good unfortunately :(08/20/2014 - 1:14pm
Andrew EisenIf it has an area dedicated to arcade machines, I'd say it counts. Arcade machine in your house though, nope.08/20/2014 - 12:16pm
ZenDoes it count if you have actual arcade machines in your house?08/20/2014 - 12:01pm
E. Zachary KnightWith the current poll, I guess it all depends on how one defines "arcade". If Chuck E Cheese or similar multipurpose businesses count, then that is a yes for me.08/20/2014 - 11:59am
