It’s time for another edition of my Naughty List! I’ve looked far and wide this time and have found four new sexy and romantic games to share with you on this lovely Sunday morning. 🥰
Not everything I cover will be strictly safe for work, but I’ll always start you off with something that is just wholesome good fun. That’s a Mr. Hands guarantee. 😉
Let’s get started!
Sexy vampires will suck the life out of you in Love Sucks: Night One 🩸
Theo has been having the strangest dreams for the past two weeks. It's the same dream every night. He dreams about two of his fellow students, Jan and Anna, attacking him sexually. But that doesn't make a lot of sense, since both are way out of his league. Jan is cool and calculating, while Anna is warm and bubbly. Theo is certain that a relationship with either would destroy him. 😓
But when both Jan and Anna invite him over to their Halloween festivities, Theo can't believe his luck! Even when Naomi, fellow student and hunter of monsters, tries to warn him that the girls are bad news, Theo won't listen. She tries to tell him that Anna is a succubus, Jan is a vampire, and both are looking to drain Theo of his life force, but Theo jumps right in regardless! Can Theo survive the night with these college-aged monsters to save himself but ultimately the girls too? 🎃
Love Sucks is an adult visual novel by Art Witch Studios, centered around Halloween. In its universe, monster-kind has secretly integrated into human society. Night One is the first of three games that explore what happens on campus for these three eventful nights.
I really enjoyed playing the free demo so far. The art is very good (shoutout to Aila Anne) and despite being horror-themed, the writing is positively hilarious in places. For example, instead of picking the main character's name, you get to pick his nickname instead. I ended up naming him "Avocadon't", which he definitely didn't appreciate. 🤣

Clean up your act and hit it off with Love & Sex: Second Base 💖
Mike is a code monkey, fresh out of college, and already stuck in a job that doesn't give him a lot of satisfaction. His love life is in shambles: his high school sweetheart cheated on him and his latest flame is dating one of his friends. Will you be able to help him find love?
Love & Sex: Second Base is a sandbox dating sim in which you build rapport with multiple beautiful women, most with personal storylines across several distinct quests. Increase your stats by going to work, exercising, and studying while keeping track of daily needs like hunger, rest, and cleanliness as well. Characters can overlap in their storylines, allowing for polyamorous outcomes if you so desire. However, being unscrupulously unfaithful won't necessarily result in the best possible outcome for your main character... 👀
Because there are so many dynamic systems interacting with each other, even simple actions like going to work can advance the story with your coworkers or start new quests. This helps to avoid the game feeling too grindy because there's always something being worked towards: either you make progress on your goals or you unlock new ones. 💪
Going purely by the numbers, Love & Sex: Second Base is already an incredibly impressive game. Featuring more than 900,000 words of narrative, 5000 voiced lines, 100 unique unlockable artworks, and 20 characters to date and romance, this game is positively jam-packed with people to meet and stories to tell!
Love & Sex is still in development because Andrealphus Games wants to write a second main character, which increases the word count even more! 😱 In the completed version, you will also be able to play as Bree, the socially awkward college freshman looking for love in her new hometown. This version will also feature full voice acting, over 40 different endings to unlock, and additional characters to play around with. 😊
Love & Sex: Second Base is available right now on Steam Early Access.

Fog up the lake house windows in Complex Relations 💦
On his final break before college, John travels to Meredith's lake house to meet up with his old group of friends. Meredith invited them over for one last gathering before everyone moves to different colleges in the fall. It should be a nice opportunity for the whole crew to just hang back and enjoy being off the grid for a while. But when Jesse gets there, he realizes that they all have different goals, from strengthening old relationships to a hot summer fling... 🌞
Complex Relations is a romantic visual novel by Amai Works with three different protagonists telling the story from their viewpoint. With over 28,000 words in the demo, this game is a wonderful escape from everyday life featuring gorgeous hand-drawn artworks. ✨

Grab 'em by the tail in Sexana: Arena Tales 🐭
Sexana: Arena Tales is a new sexy puzzle adventure from Tiny Hat Studios. Featuring oodles of fancy artworks by the infamous Doxy, this adult game will have you fighting for dominance in an arena filled with monster girls! 🐙
The story has you playing as an unnamed hero who is lured to a far-off town by a mysterious seductress. The town features an arena in which adventurers of all stripes hope to gain prestige and wealth by competing against each other. But of course, this is a screw or be-screwed kind of deal, so you'd better come out on top! ⚔
I am really excited about this game! 😍 Doxy is an incredible artist and I can't wait to see what this blend of visual novel reading and RPG battling will do with their art. But the downside of a release so deep into the month is that my wallet will be pretty drained already... 💸
Sexana: Arena Tales will be available on Steam next week, on the 25th of November!
Sexy prototypes for sexy people ❤
I keep reminding people: even though I do this newsletter every two weeks, I do in fact make games of my own! 😅 I’m working on a game called Up There They Love, which is about flying around a solar system with your crew, assigning them to tasks, and building up relationships with them. It’s a combination of a visual novel and a character management sim and I’m working on it all by myself. 😬
For the past two weeks, I’ve been working on a prototype for the improved night gameplay I had in mind. Basically, the sexy part of my game about sexy’ing it up. And I’d love for you to try out this prototype!
Yes, it’s slightly clunky, but I hope it gets the point across. It’s a card game where you work together with your crewmate to both have a good time.
In the coming weeks, I intend to integrate this gameplay into my actual game and polish it to a fine sheen. Then I will really have something to show for myself! 💪
Thanks for reading and I hope to see you next time. 😘
