I’ve been told that it’s Mother’s Day in some parts of the world. Make sure you treat the MILF in your life right, because in the words of Justin Timberlake: every Mother’s Day needs a Mother’s Night. 😉

Unspeakable games on the Epic Games Store 🛒
An ongoing story is the court case of Epic Games vs. Apple Computers. Now, this wouldn’t normally be something I cover in this newsletter, but they somehow managed to drag Itch.io into it as well?
Specifically, Apple’s lawyers are making the argument that because Epic is allowing Itch on its own store, players might see a boob. Specifically, they described the games available on Itch.io as "so offensive” that “we cannot speak about them here”
This statement obviously rubbed some people the wrong way. Not only does this paint the entire Itch.io platform with a particular brush, those “offensive” games are often made by independent artists who are just trying to speak their truth.
There’s lots more to be said here, but I will have to get into that for my next newsletter.
Twitter’s tipjar leaves NSFW creators sweating 💦
What was hard to miss this week is that Twitter will soon stop being completely free:
While it’s obviously great news that we can soon be paid for all of our bad tweets, this also left some NSFW creators worried about their future on the platform.
As I’ve covered before in this newsletter, payment processors are very biased against any type of sex work. It’s very possible that Twitter will decide that appeasing the payment processors is more important than hosting lewd content.
You should obviously still use the tipping feature if you want to. But I hope you will continue to support your favorite NSFW creators in other ways if Twitter decides they’re not welcome anymore. 💔
Oh, and the current implementation of tipping doxxes you:
Don’t get melted by Melting Point 🔥
As a humble blacksmith from a planet called Earth, you are the only person standing between the dreaded Furna annihilating a race of metallic people called Metals. A metal girl named Tin enlists you to save her people from this race of sentient fire and magma. With your trusty hammer in hand, you must now command battles for the Metals, reforge their broken forms, and maybe fall in love with one or more of these metallic aliens.
Melting Point is an erotic sci-fi RPG currently in development by AstroKaen. The full game will feature 9 dateable women (inspired by elements of the periodic table), a real-time tactical combat system, and voice acting for all the important scenes.
You can find a free demo for Melting Point on Itch.
(Psst! If you’re working on your own lewd game, take a page out of AstroKaen’s playbook and assemble a presskit for your game. This page made it really easy for me to write about Melting Point!)
Fighting for your lewds ⚔
I came across a fascinating game on my feed this week:
I’ve complained before that my Japanese isn’t exactly up to snuff, but you’re telling me this is a lewd game and not a fighting one? 🤯
The game is called “魔剣インキュバス” (Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a translation) and features a female protagonist fighting through various backgrounds.
Fair warning: it does appear to feature sexual violence.
I would love to know more about this game, so please let me know in the comments if you can translate for me! It is currently in development and you can get a free demo from DLSite.
Writing Wrap-Up 📖
A real-life dominatrix explains what would happen if Lady Dimitrescu would actually step on you. Most importantly, they explain that it would be totally doable.
LewdPixels interviewed the developers of Sanguine Rose. They go into plenty of detail about how their sexy game came to be!
Nanoff wrote an extensive post-mortem about the launch of their free gay comic book on Itch. It went surprisingly well, earning them a lot of downloads, new followers on Twitter, and patrons on Patreon.
WaifuMaterMRG releases an app-like eroge on Itch called My Rental Girlfriend. Rent a cat-eared girlfriend and have her guide your masturbation sessions!
Blerdy Otome now has so many followers that she’s giving some of them away! Wait, hang on. I’m told that isn’t what “2K Follower Giveaway” means?
Blerdy Otome also reviewed the Taiwanese visual novel The Monster of Memory: Destiny. After a tragic accident claims the life of his older brother, Sumi applies for an experimental project that promises to bring him back through the use of AI technology.
LewdPixels writes about how you can reduce the filesize of your Ren’Py game with WebP image compression. WebP was specifically developed to be smaller than PNG but look better than JPEG, so it’s an easy win!
The replies to this tweet by Nakadashi are full of lewd games that I need to check out. While I covered a lot of these already for the Naughty List, a few of them were new to me as well!
Tumblr tried to claim to be the most LGTBQIA+ friendly place on the Internet. Commenters were quick to point out that that doesn’t match their experiences, to put it mildly.
Cheeky chuckle 🤭
