A few days ago, D3Publisher opened a website teasing a new game, including the “Touch Abstinence Starer,” an infernal machine demanding that visitors did not click on a prominent pair of anime breasts right at the top of the site.
The feature included a counter with a twist: every time someone clicked on the breast, one second would be added to the count-down.
This means that it was up to gamers to resist the temptation of clicking in order to let the count-down expire, or touching to their heart content, delaying the reveal of the new game.
Below you can see the result.
Not only the count down is now at over 999 days, but the number of clicks is marked at 999 billion. But that’s not all. The counter has been clicked so much that it reached its maximum value, effectively breaking it. Clicking it now will simply reset it to 999,999,999,999, meaning that those abused breasts have been clicked over a trillion times. How much is that “over?” We’ll probably never know.
Luckily, this doesn’t mean that we won’t know about the game until 999 days have passed, as the counter simply gave fans a chance to get a reveal before the media embargo expires. Since the test has been failed, we’ll simply have to wait until the new title (which could be a sequel of the PS Vita Exclusive Omega Labyrinth) is revealed by magazines and websites.
I’m sure many will think that we were set up for failure, and I can’t exactly say that they’re wrong.
