Adult games can be quite the lucrative market and one, as of yet, virtually untapped gaming market is VR. Now, I know that there are quite a few adult-themed VR games out there already but if we’re going to be honest here – there’s a lot of room for growth. Which is why it will probably come as good news for some people (not me) that the world’s largest adult gaming portal, Nutaku has taken an interest in the virtues of virtual reality, and has expanded to the platform with their first two virtual reality titles. So anyone (not me) who’s looking for some new, polished adult VR experiences will be able to take a look at the two new games, SexBot: Quality Assurance Simulator and Elven Love: Naughty Rituals, which mark the start of a range of new immersive experiences from Nutaku.
With lots of adult content under their belts (pun intended), the 18+ gaming portal is aiming to keep their title of being the largest provider of adult-themed entertainment for gamers, that they’re branching into new platforms and diverse gaming frontiers.
“Expanding into different realms of gaming and meeting the demands of our diverse community are Nutaku’s primary goals,” said Product Manager at Nutaku, Ben Faccio. “We’re excited to partner with innovative and creative studios to bring hot projects to Nutaku while offering our users top-quality content where they can feel like part of the action. We’re watching our future unfold with VR and can’t wait to share these great experiences with our community.”
SexBot: Quality Assurance Simulator puts players in the role of a Quality Assurance tester for the science community’s naughtiest pleasure robots. The entire game takes place in a laboratory where you’re going to have to pull up your socks, and take down your pants and do whatever it takes to sexually arouse the bots. The game also includes in-game animations that will accompany any actions in real life – plus the animations will also include strap-on capabilities as part of Nutaku’s “continuing commitment to providing new and engaging options to female adult gamers”. Yay progress. It’s available now for PC VR headsets on Nutaku for $20.
As for Elven Love: Naughty Rituals – you can probably guess which turn this is going to take. The game was inspired by beloved games like Dungeons & Dragons, and immerses you in the magical sexy world of wood and moon elves. The game’s description says, “Despite shared ancestors, both races of elf are different and falling in love between them is very unusual. For those rare occasions, they have an ancient ritual of love that must be completed for the reunion of both kin. In this experience you will be witnessing the ceremony preparations of two elves, connected by the spiritual bond of love.” So, in essence, you basically get to stand there and ‘be immersed’ while two virtual elves get it on. It’s available now for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on Nutaku for $15.
Now, I do tend to make fun of the notion of adult games, a lot, but there’s no doubt that the industry is very profitable and very popular. Nutaku alone has invested over $30 million in indie, startup and international gaming studios and developers and with their expansion into VR, that means they can help emerging VR developers grow and be profitable enough to create amazing experiences in the long term. And I’m not just talking about adult gaming experiences either.
