Anime girls are waiting for you to tell them about your real-life poo for new game’s microtransactions -- Nov 18
For generations people have been saying there’s no such thing as a free lunch, and in the modern era we could probably add that there’s no such thing as a free-to-play mobile game.

Sure, they might not charge you anything to start off, but it’s only a matter of time before a difficulty spike blocks you off from experiencing the rest of the game’s content until you agree to some microtransactions.

So that’s likely to be the situation with Unkore, a just-released game for Android and iOS devices. You can download the game and start playing for free, but if you want the characters and items that are going to help you complete your quest in the fantasy realm of Utopia, it’s microtransaction time. The twist, though, it that Unkore isn’t interested in the money you make, but the stool, as you earn in-game currency by telling the game’s cast of cute anime girls about the real-life turd you’ve dropped that day.

Unkore is not, however, the latest in the Japanese video game industry’s sub-genre of odd fetish titles. Instead, it’s an educational and wellness effort from the Japan Unko Society. If you haven’t deduced it yet, unko is the Japanese word for “poo,” and the Japanese Unko Society is dedicated to raising awareness about digestive track health, including such serious issues as colon cancer.
