Perfect Eggplants Don’t Exi- is a virtual reality experience about attaining the ideal body image, and failing to do so. In this superficial world of eggplants, players are encouraged to modify their bodies to meet society’s arbitrary expectations. The game centers around the concept of the Gay Male Gaze, suggesting that the intersection of gender and sexual orientation reinforces gay men’s tendency to objectify both themselves and each other by diverging and conflicting standards.
