Porn Studio Tycoon’s Steam Greenlight Entry Spurs Heated Discussions
(Last Updated On: July 11, 2016)

Zitrix Megalomedia, a Russian-based developer, has recently posted up their game Porn Studio Tycoon to Steam Greenlight. The game is similar to HuniePot’s Honey Cam Studio, only it’s not a clicker, it’s not a porn game and it’s all about the business side of running a successful porn empire.

LewdGamer (the site is most definitely NSFW) picked up news about the game after it was recently submitted to Steam’s Greenlight curation service. The name and the themes for the game instantly garnered it a lot of eyeballs on the page, especially after taking a look at the risque but moderately safe for work trailer.

Instantaneously, there were a lot of comments both for and against the game. The comments that were for the game praised Zitrix for going more in-depth with the business aspects of the porn industry, allowing players to cut together videos, interact with 29 different actresses and dealing with the ups and downs of casting models for certain kinds of shoots. It’s something the comment thread consistently notes is missing from Honey Cam Studio.

The other side of the coin railed on Zitrix, claiming that all of the realistic looking photos that were “drawn over” appear to be copyrighted material. Multiple people mention that they downvoted the game for the use of copyrighted material.

Another group of commenters simply feel as if the game is trying to appeal to “horny 12-year-olds”, with users like Chudah writing…

“The world and morality has been in the shitter for at least 10 years now. This is just icing on the cake. And you know it’ll get voted to the top 50 because there are enough 12 yo boys on Steam who think they’re cool and edgy cause PORN! I just don’t know if Valve will allow this through or not. Guess we shall see.”

Arkatox advised the Greenlight community to not vote for Porn Studio Tycoon if they’re letting their sexual urges get in the way, writing…

“I feel like people are going to vote for this game just because they feel horny. That’s… not a good reason to vote for a game. Think before you vote, people. Does this genuinely look like a game you want to play? It doesn’t for me, but if you genuinely think you’d have fun, give it a vote. Just don’t vote because you’re horny.”

VirexGames simply felt as if the topical matter and design was “garbage”, writing…

“Absolutely pathetic. Why work hard and make a real game when you can make garbage like this and know that people will vote for it just because of tits. You’re a disgrace and have no right being on Greenlight.”

The three groups – those who want the game, those who feel it only appeals to horny young boys, and those who feel Zitrix is using copyrighted material – are all battling it out for the loudest voice in the Steam comment section on the Greenlight page.

This seems like the kind of game that could end up going either way. If Zitrix can prove that they aren’t using copyrighted material then they may just win over the copyright crusaders, and in that regard they would have both the pro-porn and the copyright crusaders on their side, while they would only have to contend with those who don’t want games on Steam aimed at horny young boys.

If you fit into the latter two groups, feel free to pass on Porn Studio Tycoon. If you do want a serious game about running a porn studio in today’s climate, feel free to check out the Steam Greenlight page or the game’s SFW official website for more info.
