Oculus Rift's First "Porn" Game?

It was gonna happen sooner or later.

by

Finally!

We can all stop holding our collective breathes and breath easy knowing that soon we will all be going on erotic adventures where we will become the suave and sexy manly man that all the girls want to sleep with... Or so I thought.

As the website so elegantly puts it:

Imagine playing Leisure Suit Larry but instead of watching a screen, you are inside the game.

Imagine the world and its inhabitants look highly realistic.

Imagine walking into a bar in Wicked Paradise, noticing a beautiful lady, talking to her, and seducing her.

Imagine playing your cards right and having passionate wild sex with her.

 Imagine all this in high quality, immersive virtual reality.

 Welcome to Wicked Paradise!


Ok, so it is a porn game with a poorly written story to link the sexual acts, right?

Not according to Van den Bosch, the creator and CEO.

He believes that there needs to be story and involvement with the characters around you.  He even uses Mass Effect as a reference point of what he is going for with character involvement.  He wants you to feel for them and care for them so when you do get intimate with them, it means something more.

Pretty ambitious for the first game of it's kind.  Not only trying to make a game with high quality models and animation but also have a story that will engage you as well.

I do have to admit, the models do show a standard for quality so far.  Here is a picture of an early model and I must admit that it looks REALLY good.

The game is even being made by a team of developers that have worked on games like RageCall of DutyLost PlanetMadden and Planet Side 2.  They are even working to build it in the Unreal Engine at the moment.  Chances are that might change for a in house built engine but those take time and money so who knows.

They are not forgetting the ladies either!

Same goes for the homosexual crowd as well.  Plans are that they will release with a story of you playing a hetrosexual male but with episodic releases you can play a female, gay male or lesbian.

On the surface, this looks like a plain and simple grab at what the porn market racks in each year but if after hearing him say so much about it, it seems he wants more then to be labeled as a porn game.  My only remaining thought is this:

Can you compete with the emotion attachment both me AND my wife got to the girls in Katawa Shoujo?

Wicked Paradise is suppose to release with the actual release of the Oculus Rift in 2014.

    My mind is blown away at this. I really never thought gaming would raise the bar. Wouldn't it be moved to an entirely new rating? AO doesn't even cover this...

    Can you even be rejected? It says it's supposed to be realistic. Feel the emotional wreckage!
