Inner Kung Fu Game
Inner Kung Fu Game is a "unique" indie spirituality game developed and published by American yogi and programmer Kevin Wacknov under the name Mind Body Aware Games LLC. Originally released as a free game on Android, iOS, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows, the game received a paid PS4 port on August 5, 2016.
Why It Intentionally Sucks
NOTE: Due to the overall quality of the game, it is possible that this was made to be intentionally bad.
- The Unity startup screen is blatantly visible once you boot up the "game" and can even be seen on its PS4 port, which is completely unacceptable and shows that the developer was too lazy to remove it.
- The human model used is extremely ugly and looks like a heat-deformed naked Ken doll or an unedited male model in MakeHuman.
- The geometric shapes used in the "game" frequently take up a lot of screen space once they grow big and serve as nothing but an annoyance to the players.
- Terrible graphics for a "spiritual" game.
- The game has nothing to do with kung fu as its title says. Instead, it is a spirituality game in the same vein as yoga.
- Cringy narrations and instructions from Kevin himself, who sounds like a broken text-to-speech bot.
- Bland and boring background, consisting of just a flat muddy hill and a very blurry sky.
- The piano background music loops a lot, which gets very annoying very quickly.
- Unresponsive controls.
- The screen layout is the same throughout every single version of the game, even the PS4 port! The only difference is the button configuration to perform the moves for the naked human male model.
- During the sitting exercises, the male model's arms and wrists move in such an unnaturally flexible manner that he can pass off as a horror movie character.
- The game costs $3 USD on the PSN Store even though its other ports are free.
- You get achievements for every 15 points you score in the game, which makes getting all the achievements ridiculously easy (if you can get past Kevin's horrible narration).
- At least Kevin explicitly tells people in the "game"'s description that it has completely nothing to do with kung fu.
- Some of Kevin's narrations are so hilariously cringey that Jim Sterling and his fans made jokes about them.
