Yes, you did read that title right. Red Barrels did indeed start a Kickstarter with its Outlast 2 players solely in mind. They are currently trying to fund what they hope to be their new product, Underscores. To clarify, Underscores is a “companion diaper” meant to keep players of Outlast 2 from soiling themselves.
“You shat, we listened. Introducing Underscares, the Outlast 2 companion diaper. Because when you’re scared, #2 can become problem #1.” After realizing just how scared people got playing their first game and the new Outlast 2 demo, Red Barrel began to solve the chronic issue of soiled pants.
After the release of Outlast 1, we received numerous reports of soiled undergarments and unprepared anuses.So we, the team at Red Barrels, decided to come up with a solution that will let every gamer play Outlast 2 without worrying about their skivvies. Fear for your underwear no more with Underscares.
Now this is where you may be questioning whether or not this whole thing is fake…
Yeah, its real, and currently has $9,958 from 177 backers. Of course however, they must reach their goal of $40,000 within the next 15 days in order to be successful and get the Underscores made. As for whether or not the quality will be good, Red Barrel has spent time mastering the Underscores with some outside help.
In partnership with local designers, we developed a diaper prototype that combines practicality, comfort and style so gamers can experience abject terror without worrying about dirtying their egos (or their couches). Underscares are wearable, comfortable, high quality and most importantly, washable.
If you find yourself wishing to get your hands on one of these then you have a few options for how much money to spend. The rewards for donations begin with a minimum of $10(CAD) to just get your hands on a pair of Underscores. If you cough up $55(CAD), you’ll find yourself not only with a new washable diaper, but also a game code for Outlast 2. For the best tier, you can get,” the official Outlast chapel from PAX East and all the Underscores you’ll need for yourself,” only costing a demonic $6,666(CAD).
