GAY gamers, get ready.

The ultimate LGBTI stereotype combat game is about to hit mobile devices early in 2014. What is being described as the world’s first gay-themed video game, Ultimate Gay Fighter features 10 ferocious LGBTI fighters who are experts in making their enemies suffer with true style and flair as they all fight to become the world’s first ultimate gay fighter.

What can only be compared as the gay brother of Mortal Combat and Street Fighter, the Ultimate Gay Fighter introduces gamers to characters like Carrie Cupcake, the larger-than-life drag queen with a nasty feather boa who literally eats other characters alive.

Other characters include Bardwell, the game’s token daddy bear; Timmy Spears, the Asian twink with his pet dog Paris and Louis Vuitton bag; Sappho Ethridge, the construction worker and train-driving scissoring lesbian; and Gogo Gary, the gay gym bunny and go-go dancer.

The Ultimate Gay Fighter’s creator Michal Patrick told media that the game was originally “a joke between my friends and me while we were drinking at brunch. I started thinking about how gays are represented in the media,” Patrick said in a press release.

“We are never the kick-ass fighters, the bad-asses who rescue you and save the day. And if we are, we are washed with heterosexual personas and mannerisms.”

Screen shot 2013-11-26 at 9.53.06 AMPatrick hoped those who play Ultimate Gay Fighter will “enjoy the humour that my gay family brings me.”

“This game is my love letter to my gay family,” he said.

“You can be queeny, you can be butch, or you can be in-between. You can be any or all the bandana colours and the colours in the rainbow flag. But no matter what colour, we are fighters. We are warriors.”

The game will be available on iPhone, Android and Windows phones this January.
