Given how the visual novel market and anime games are currently being rounded up for the second Waifu Holocaust, this news about Nutaku opening up a section specifically catering toward LGBTQ+ content all while certain other lewd games get the axe (even on Nutaku), it definitely makes it seem as if there’s some sort of an effort to keep the traditional weebs away from their waifus.
Nevertheless, Nutaku is diving headfirst into the inclusivity ball pit. The digital distribution outlet for adult games proudly announced that it was opening up a completely separate section for LGBTQ+ games.
There are three new categorical sections on the service, including gay games, lesbian games, and transgender games. You can scour through the NSFW LGBTQ+ section over on Nutaku.
Ben Faccio, the product manager at Nutaku, commented on why they decided to target the LGBTQIA+ community, mentioning in the press release..
“The adult games currently available to the LGBTQ+ community are low quality, so we saw an opportunity to improve the current content available to 18+ gamers.
“We’ve been working to make our platform more inclusive, and this release is the first major step towards that goal. We are excited to collaborate with Men.com to bring Men Bang to life. The game boasts vibrant artwork and high-quality gameplay. Something that can be enjoyed by the Men.com community, and gaymers alike.”
Men Bang is one of two exclusive gay games on Nutaku made in collaboration with Men.com. The other game is Gay Harem, which has a thumbnail that makes it look like a cosplaying Android 19 is giving a full-nelson to a fake Trunks who is getting his schlong tongue-slapped by a PoC.
It’s about what you would expect from a gay RPG dating sim.
What seems odd, though, is that engaging in gay orgies is a-okay for Nutaku but a game like Imolicious, which dabbles in the forbidden fantasy of family love, was a bit too risque for the platform?
Some have cited Canadian laws as being the reason why Imolicious got hit with the banhammer, stating that media featuring hardcore incest is not allowed, while others blamed payment processors.
Either way, Nutaku seems to be in favor of futa, monster, and inter-gender content of a lascivious nature, but once the last names start and end the same, they slam the book down hard on those topics.
