23 Queer Games about Sex, Love, and Romance
Bundled for your convenience in Naughty List News #96
NaughtyList.News is a free weekly publication about adult games, sometimes supported by advertising. If you’d like to buy me a coffee, please check out my Ko-Fi!
Every week I strive to lift interesting voices in the adult gaming industry. And if there’s one thing I know, it’s that LGBTQIA+ people tend to make the most interesting adult games of them all.
So when the Queer Games Bundle 2023 was announced on Itch.io, you can bet your ass I was on that immediately. Because the other thing I know about queer creators is that they can always use a little more promotion of their hard work.
Get the latest adult gaming news in your inbox every Sunday. 💌
I scoured through every game in this bundle (466 items!) to find 23 excellent games by queer creators about love, sex, and romance. And all of these games can be yours for the low, low price of a single AAA video game if you get the Queer Games Bundle in the month of Pride.
Because there are still many video games to get through, I categorized them based on audience appeal. I hope you can find some to your liking!
