Mark Antoon: ‘We Want to Break the Stigma Around Adult Gaming’ with Nutaku

I think the stigma is less about the "adult" aspect, and more that adult games usually just suck as games.

Yeah, gonna need something more than visual novels. Illusion are the closest to making actual games.

Yeah, a lot of them are just wish fulfillment visual novels, or rather cringey stuff like Gal Gun.

An exception to the rule would be Dungeon Travelers 2. It has the scantily clad female heroes, scantily clad enemies, but by God the battle and levelling system is incredibly deep and allows for creative freedom, combat can reach white knuckle thrill levels (especially some of the tougher bosses) and the tricks and traps of the various dungeons constantly keep you on your toes. Brutal, but rewarding. Low in budget and visually unimpressive, but for RPG stat nerds and fans of dungeon crawling, it's sublime. One of my favourite RPGs of the last decade.
