I’ve a little free time this week, so I’m beginning to plan what could be a larger game for me to make later in the year. I feel it’s also a good time to perhaps do that thing I do every 2 years or so, where I have a bunch of questions to see what everyone thinks about certain ideas.
I’ve spend some time recently investigating the general state of erotic games these days. There’s :
- Plenty of stuff I’m not keen on. Am I the only one who releases full games instead of episodes these days? Why do so many people render in IRAY, but just stick with the default lighting?
- Plenty of stuff I’m like WTF with. Are, like 90% of erotic games now either MILF or incest? Can you really get away with have a fuckable female character clearly look about 10 because you add the whole ‘all characters portrayed are 18+’ at the start? And why would you want to?
- Some stuff I like! There’s actually some setups and scenarios which are quite clever. And, while there’s many game creators you just do the bare minimum or work possible, there’s also a small handful of artists who are genuinely, very talented! It’s great to see.
Some things seem popular and I can be into. So, keeping these games in mind, lets ask some questions and see what you all think. There’s a massive pile of stuff I’m simply not willing to have in my games, but there is a list of stuff I can get behind.
Game Engine/Ren’py/Something else
My games have always been catered towards online play. There was time when that meant the whole game has to be browser based.
But, nowadays the games using Ren’py can work on things like phones too. You could download a version of the game designed to work on Android or iOS, with sound, music and everything. I’ve had a little experience with the Ren’py engine, and I’m pretty confident that I could make a full game using it.
So, how does everyone feel? Would you like future games to be Ren’py, or should I just stick to the current system I have?
Playing as the woman
Not to be confused as playing as a female, I mean how does everyone feel about playing as the actually ‘date’?
You control someone like Crystal, you can explore the city and get into plenty of naughty shenanigans. You can still name and maybe customize ‘you’ in the game, but you won’t be there for every scene.
The advantage of this is that it allows me plenty of scenarios and camera angles I don’t normally do. Part of the reasons photoshoot have become a little stale in my games is that there’s only so much you can do when you’re a photographer in a first person view speaking to the model. Controlling the model instead could open some new an interesting possibilities.
OK. Now, before half of you get super excited and the other half wince in fear, I’m not talking about the type of corruption game you might be thinking of.
There is a genre of erotic games focused of breaking down a womans will, eventually turning her into an obedient sex slave willing to do anything. Yeah, that is not what I’m talking about here.
I think it’s possible to ‘corrupt’ a female character without feeling like a sociopath in the process.
Betsy is a good example. She starts off as a nice wholesome young lady, and by the end of the game is willing to do way more naughty things with you. Dreaming with Elsa is debatably one too, if you take the naughty path with her. I can go a little more naughty and nasty than these games without going crazy. Corruption doesn’t have to be super nasty. Let’s call it ‘soft corruption’.
This tone of ‘corruption’ mixed with playing as the woman could be interesting, but even if you’re not playing as her, what do you think?
Dirty, naughty sex
Absolutely nothing in a rape or ‘blackmailed for sex’ category, but I can get behind certain behind setups. Sex with an old man? A homeless guy? A very small guy (yeah, ‘little person’ sound pretentious, but ‘midget’ still sound offensive. You know the type of guy I’m talking about)? An orgy? ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ style sex party? Sex in front of a big crowd? Gokkum? Bukkake?
You don’t have to want all of these, but if any one of them sound appealing let me know. I can have future posts about which specific ones people want.
That’s it for today unless I think of anymore questions. Here’s a random images of Leanna since I don’t like doing a post without at least one new render.
Next post, I will be announcing which members game will become free, and probably have a rambling discussion about something video game industry related.
