HeyBaby Game

360_hey_baby_1007Created by the artist and producer Suyin Looui, this game is a satirical response to street harassment.

In this first person shooter game, women have the possibility to be the aggressor and kill violently men catcalling them.

The extreme violence along with the radical side taken by the creator enabled the game to have a quick and strong response from the public although a lot of reactions have also shown that not everyone understand the satirical aspect of the game, and reinforce the idea of some people that some women overreact. Another problem/weakness is also that once again, men are represented as the only ones blameworthy.

 The game is not available anymore.
