Not too long ago, the developer Red Barrels announced that they were creating special underpants for gamers looking to play the upcoming Outlast 2. Of course, everyone thought it was a joke – like the fart-smelling peripheral for South Park: The Fractured But Whole. So you can imagine my surprise when I got a press release detailing a recently launched Kickstarter for Underscares…

The Underscares Companion Diaper campaign was launched on the 17th. Since then it has made over 25% of its pledge goal; gamers are actually excited about these special underpants. Coming in Basic and Limited Edition Deluxe options (complete with a drink holder), the Underscares are supposedly comfortable to wear. They’re also washable…that was a notable point in the presser.

While I doubt people will actually “use” these undies, it’s fun to see the game’s community get involved in such a unique way.
