Fat Princess is a video game released in July 2008. It's a capture-the-flag style game, except that you have to capture/rescue a fat princess, who is being force-fed cake until she's too fat to move.
Feminist (and other critical) responses Edit
- Fat Princess - "Ugh" (Feminist Gamers)
- "Honestly, the “core game mechanics” are brilliant, and if I didn’t care one whit about the objectification of women or fat-bashing, I would think this was the best thing since… well, Team Fortress 2. And I’m quite sure that this describes 99% of the PSN players out there, so I’m sure the game will do very well."
- I write letters. (Shakesville)
- "Anyway, congrats on your awesome new game, Sony. I'm positively thrilled to see such unyielding dedication to creating a new generation of fat-hating, heteronormative assholes."
