A new Kickstarter campaign is pushing a product for smelly gamers: Gamer Deodorant.

The staff here at The Escapist was caught off guard today by the announcement of a new Kickstarter campaign, but it’s not for a nostalgic game, or a new VR headset. Nope, it’s crowdfunding support for a brand new deodorant aimed at making gamers smell better.

The deodorant is named “Plus 5,” and the initial scent is “Charisma.”

What did our staff think of it? Here are some choice quotes:

“Deodorant named after an ability buff to target gamers? Next thing you know they are going to start naming body spray after medieval weapons.” – Alexander Macris, Co-Founder & Publisher

“If this is what it takes, this is what we need to do.” – Josh Vanderwall, Editor-in-Chief

“I’ve been trying to come up with something witty to say, but my brain won’t stop thinking about the potential DLC.” – Liz Finnegan, Senior Editor

“I’m not really interested in +5 to Charisma. It’s my dump stat. Why not +5 Strength?” – Ron Whitaker, Senior Editor
