ISIS Dating Sim Launches Crowdfunding Campaign

by Chase McCain

It’s listed on Kickstarter as The Super Patriotic Dating Simulator but make no mistake, you are correct in your reading of the actual title: Fuck ISIS.

In Fuck ISIS, you navigate the narrative of Elodie: a super horny, blonde-haired and blue-eyed, American teenager that also happens to be both a virgin and a CIA spy. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to infiltrate ISIS, eliminate some key personnel, and explore yourself sexually.

Showrunner Karlee Esmailli (whose previous work in crowdfunded projects includes both Exploding Kittens and Secret Hitler) describes the game as a satirical comedy dating sim, and hopes that “players walk away from [it] reminded that ISIS is not representative of Islam, and that ISIS fucking sucks.”

The choice footage featured in the video pitch showcases a provocatively hilarious undressing of culture and sexuality, rolled together into an anime stylized visual novel. For starters, the game’s illustration of the ISIS flag has replaced the Arabic writing with depictions of exotic looking dildos and sex toys. The funding page also provides key visuals for all seven of the men that Elodie is able to “interact with,” along with each of their likes, dislikes, and measurements.

Esmailli and the Chicago based Immigrant Father Studios have set an all or nothing ask of roughly 42,000 USD$. The price of admission is 15$, but if you don’t want your name listed as a credited backer you’ll have to fork over another 10$ for optional anonymity. The campaign will run for about one month starting today. So if you’re in for some laughs or curious about the project, you can check out the Kickstarter funding page here.
