Sony rejects Eye Toy Kama Sutra game
Sony Computer Entertainment has rejected a pitch for a game called Eye Toy Kama Sutra.
In conversation with Euro Gamer , Sony Computer Entertainment executive producer Pete Smith said, “This was a genuine pitch from a developer who pitched EyeToy Kama Sutra. Seriously, this was a genuine pitch. So, the guy is going to me, 'it's like, so there's an outline on the screen with the EyeToy...' I'm like, I get it, yeah.”
He goes on to say, "We were talking about it back at the office. Obviously we didn't sign it and it never ever saw the light of day. But we were going, how exactly would we QA it? You can imagine these two big hairy testers going, 'No, you're the bitch tonight.'"
The obvious question, how the game will be demoed, to which Smith responded,
"I know, you'd just have to go for it, wouldn't you? In one sense I think, god, I wish it would have been done. We could have maybe got some celebrity endorsements and stuff like that. What I just find strange is, sometimes you get these pitches and you think, this is just bonkers. But the developers absolutely believe in it, which is great. I'd much rather that than they come along halfhearted. This guy - I can remember it, I will never forget him - he was like, 'We want to do this. We think it could be great. And, yeah. We get all kinds of pitches, but that's definitely the one that stands out for me."
The kind of pitches that publishers like Sony receive are quite outrageous and most of the time never see the light of day. But this is one pitch that truly stands out.
Sexual references are not new to gaming and quite a few games have sexual references/themes in them but a game based entirely on the act is surprising. If you have ever heard of a weird concept being pitched in game developed, let us know in the comments section below.
