Zombie Cow and Channel 4 have just released the first trailer for PRIVATES, a reproductive health education game for teenagers. It's an action-packed, side-scrolling adventure game. In a vagina.
My incredibly awesome, award-winning, genius wife commissioned this; it's the latest in a series of "public service games" she and her colleagues at C4 are releasing as part of the broadcaster's public service remit.
Privates is a platform twin-stick shooter in which you lead a teeny-tiny gang of condom-hatted marines as they delve into peoples' vaginas and bottoms and blast away at all manner of oozy, shouty monsters. It's rude, funny, bitingly satirical and technically pretty accurate if you don't count the tiny people or the germs with teeth.Zombie Cow Studios and Channel 4 announce 'Privates'
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
