Developed by Phr00t's Software, the first-person six-degrees shooter Spermination is just as ridiculous and dirty as it sounds. The game sees players taking on the role of a sperm outfitted with high-tech weapons and gear as it kills other sperm on its way to a uterus.
Game Informer provided a basic overview of the game, but instead of focusing on how ridiculous it is, they focused on the fact that it's designed for virtual reality devices such as the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. Yes, this first-person shooter was designed to be experienced through the glory of VR.
The actual gameplay is pretty basic, with players targeting other rival sperm and blasting them out of the way before heading toward the final destination. So what happens when you get there? Well, a baby is born. You can see what the gameplay is like with a trailer below that gives you an idea of what the gameplay is like and how hideous the babies are that you can create.
Despite being VR-ready and one of the games now fine-tuned to work with the upcoming HTC Vive, which is due for release in April, and the Oculus Rift, which is due for release at the end of March, not everyone on the Steam page seems to be digging the game.
There are plenty of positive reviews, mostly taking the game's low price and simple mechanics at face value and some people enjoy the VR qualities and the completely ridiculous deformed babies at the end of each run.
On the flip side there are also some negative reviews pointing out that the game's simplistic mechanics, crude graphics and poor scaling makes it another one of those troll games that are in wide abundance on Steam, such as Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015 or What's Under Your Blanket.
To be fair, Spermination is at least in 3D and does require a beefier computer than something made in 1995, and it does support VR headsets so it at least has an advantage on the competition in that regard.
Speaking of the system requirements, you will need at least 2GB of RAM and a dual-core to play the game. However, these are not the stats for using a virtual reality headset. The HTC Vive and Oculus Rift both require a minimum GTX 970 and 8GB of RAM, so if you want to play Spermination just for the heck of it you can do so on a fairly low-end PC, but if you want to play the game in VR you'll need a beefed up rig.
You can grab a digital copy of the game right now from over on Steam for only $2.99. The game doesn't have a rating, but those babies are terrifying enough to give even grown adults nightmares.
