Standard video games traditionally use a series of joysticks and buttons to play, but 'Planet Licker' features an unexpected game control: your tongue. Featuring food-safe controllers with flavors including Matcha Lemondate, Orange Cream, Blue Vanilla, Coffee, Beet and Blueberry, the game is a delicious way to "play" dessert. The game was demonstrated at the Game Developers Conference 2016 in San Francisco.

The 'Planet Licker' video game uses a series of flavored game controls to navigate around outer space. When a planet is locked onto, players must lick to consume them. The player must also use the precision of their tongue movements to avoid obstacles and make it through the area safely.

'Planet Licker' brings a new dimension to the video game market, which helps to expand the current offerings of augmented reality and virtual reality.
