1047 Games announced that Wormhole Wars has a brand new mode currently in the works called T-Bag Confirmed. It’s like the Kill Confirmed mode from Call of Duty, only this time around you can only confirm the kill by tea-bagging your opponent, bobbing up and down by slamming your junk in their face.
The developers confirmed the news with a tweet and a short clip from the upcoming mode, which you can check out below.
In light of recent events, we made a gamemode “T-bag Confirmed.” It’s like kill confirmed, but to confirm/deny kills, you t-bag dead bodies. This is all in good fun, and we hope you’ll join us on Sunday for some t-bag action! Grab a key here: https://t.co/3d7Y03MuTq #teabaggate pic.twitter.com/s4So70u6ql

You’ll be able to preview the new T-Bag Confirmed mode this Sunday on April 15th.
The mode came about after rumors spread that a development company at PAX East earlier this month demonstrated a game that featured tea-bagging, and that allegedly a developer team-killed a female game journalist and tea-bagged her.
This rumor originated from Michael Futter and Amanda Farough back on April 8th, 2018.
The duo claimed that they would be contacting the publisher about the incident, since they felt that it was unprofessional for female game journalists to get tea-bagged in first-person shooter games.
Some people pointed to the developers behind Wormhole Wars as being the culprits, but the developers later came out on social media claiming that it wasn’t them, mostly because their presentation of the game at PAX East consisted of pre-captured gameplay footage.
Hi I can guarantee this was not us.
1. Our game does not have team killing.
2. That gameplay footage was recorded prior to PAX East with devs and members of our community. No press was involved.
3. We would NEVER disrespect press like that. That’s me, a dev, getting teabagged.

They later posted that they weren’t accusing Farough or Futter of lying about being tea-bagged at PAX East, but that Wormhole Wars certainly wasn’t involved.
We are not accusing her of lying. She never said it was us. Someone else in the comments on her thread started that rumor

Making light of the whole tea-bag situation is definitely a good way to go about it and an equally good way to take the negative press and turn it into something positive.
