120423_swordfight.jpgKurt Bieg and Ramsey Nasser (of Twirdie and Circadia fame) have unveiled Swordfight, a unique physical game in which two players compete using a pair of crotch-mounted Atari 2600 joysticks.

The object of Swordfight is to poke the action button on your opponent's controller using your own joystick. Players may also be handcuffed behind the back, for an extra bit of flair and/or sexual tension. The grimy street corner setting really completes the experience, I think.

The game's Tumblr site includes several picture sets of couples engaged in awkward jousting (pictured above: girl-on-guy; also available: guy-on-guy, girl-on-girl). A demonstration video also proves enlightening.
