Gal*Gun Has A Panic Button, For When Mom Walks In

Gal*Gun: Double Peace, the PlayStation game about shooting your love at schoolgirls is now on Steam, and it’s even managed to crack the top-sellers list. The more people playing, the bigger chance someone gets caught in mid-play. Luckily there’s a button just for that.

Available on both the PlayStation 4 and Steam versions of Inti Create’s risque rail shooter (Vita players can just tuck it in their pants), the “Mom Walked In” key as it is called here is a common feature among more considerate adult Japanese gaming fare.

Say you’re a 43 year old who hasn’t lived at home in decades, firing away at anime school girls. Maybe you’re making liberal use of the more accurate mouse controls offered by the PC version, zooming in to see through clothing.

Why, it’s just an old Super Nintendo game. You know, Happy Happy Unhappy Peace? I played it all the time as a kid, mom. Yeah, like Final Fantasy. Now get out of my room.

What a lifesaver! Just don’t let whoever is intruding linger for long, because any button press takes you right back to the innocently recording a video for your readers action.

I wish almost every “mature rated” game had something silly like this. I had my five year old walk in unexpectedly on me while playing Fallout 4 and I had just pulled off a nice headshot which was being replayed in slow motion. She was VERY upset by this and it ended up giving her nightmares. Crap.
