The world of adult gaming is heading in an inevitable direction: interactive virtual reality sex.
Mature gaming portal Nutaku this month launched two new interactive VR experiences on its platform in Elven Love: Naughty Rituals by Red Vibe Studios and Candy Valley Network’s SexBot: Quality Assurance Simulator. These are to be the first of a series of VR experiences Nutaku plans to incorporate into its platform.
Elven Love is inspired by games like Dungeons & Dragons and features races of elves falling in love and ‘honoring’ their bond in ways I best not describe here. SexBot, meanwhile, casts players as a Quality Assurance tester for a new line of pleasure robots, putting them through their paces in, again, ways that are best left to the imagination. I can’t help but wonder if the game was at all inspired by Owlchemy Labs’ popular VR launch game, Job Simulator.
Both are playable with the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets.
But these aren’t free experiences like much of the VR porn that has started to populate the internet in recent years. Elven Love costs $15, while Sexbot goes for $20. Are VR owners prepared to pay a premium for interactive virtual sex? And will such experiences help push the industry forward, as so many have predicted they will?
