In 'Oh...Sir!,' players have the opportunity to take out their aggression on one another without having to resort to the violence that is endemic in most fighting games. That's because, in the indie title, characters duel not with their fists, but with their words.

Rather than being set in realms of magic or science fiction, Oh...Sir! is set in England's past. In the game, Victorian gentlemen and ladies face off in bouts of insults, hoping to besmirch each other's honors. The game is structured like a classic beat-em-up, with health bars and several flat backgrounds for levels.

In terms of gameplay, Oh...Sir! has a communal pool of words and phrases that both sparring gentlemen can pull from. The character that inflicts the most cutting (or, more often, the most sensical) insults deals the most emotional damage and comes out victorious.
