I don’t know about you, but I’ve been in a real mood for cyberpunk fiction these past few weeks. 🤔 That’s why I’ve selected four games that should help scratch that itch!
Welcome to Mr. Hand’s Naughty List, where every two weeks I select the best games about sex, love, and romance for you. If you like what I’m doing, let me know in the comments!
Let’s get into it! 💖
Deprogram your own gender in Hardcoded 👩💻
Hardcoded is a visual novel about a thinking/learning droid that is on the run from her owners in the cyberpunk dystopia of Pira City. Her owners would not accept her chosen gender, which is why she's looking for a new place that accepts her for who she really is. Unfortunately, what makes living out her true self slightly more complicated is that she has a gendered name hardcoded into her programming. 😬
After arriving in the city, HC is quickly able to befriend a band of merry characters, who all have their own problems to deal with. But they do want your help in investigating a suspicious increase in horny incidents in the city. These people quickly accept you as one of their own and help you find your way in this otherwise unforgiving place.
Besides uncovering dark and dangerous secrets, you spend your downtime either romancing the large cast of characters or earning money to decorate your apartment, buy new clothes, and collect futuristic dildos. 🤭
Hardcoded is a gorgeous, but very explicit game. Most characters are looking to fuck or be fucked and the game features many dicks, most of them attached to girls. If you're looking for a horny mystery game, I don't think you can go wrong with this one! 😘
Pop the hood and service your parts in Full Service Shop 🔩
In the year 20XX, healthcare is free, top-of-the-line, and covers both your meaty and cybernetic bits. And on the cybernetic front, you're due for an upgrade. Step into the waiting room of your local health clinic, the titular Full Service Shop, to see what parts they have on offer. 🔧
Four cybernetically licensed technicians are ready to inspect your model, swap out your genitalia, address you by your preferred pronouns, and share their kinks with you. Featuring roughly 70,000 words and multiple endings, this kinky visual novel full of lesbian romance will have you lubed up and ready to go in no time at all! 💦
Full Service Shop was made by Alexis Royce, Tsushi, and Camden Dawn in six weeks for the NaNoRenO game jam, in which participants challenge themselves to make a fully functional visual novel under a very tight deadline.

Work up an appetite for romance in She Hungered 🍴
Going hiking out in the woods and spending a week in a cabin was Leah's idea. But Jessie agrees that it's not a bad way for two burnt-out grad students to send off the spring semester. The pair have been best friends for a while now, yet Jessie harbors a secret she struggles to contain: the shy and bookish college girl has fallen head over heels for her lady friend with the chiseled abs and the tomboyish looks.
When Leah abruptly heads out into the woods, she leaves Jessie alone for some pensive thinking and sapphic yearning. And Jessie realizes she needs a distraction but forgot to bring a book. Luckily, she finds a leather-bound volume on one of the shelves of the cabin.
But when she starts leafing through its pages, she learns more about her desires than she could have ever bargained for...
Dive into sexy crime and horror in Call Me Under 🌊
If you're looking to leave your past on the Surface behind, why not do so in a city that is only rumored to exist? Styx is a mysterious underwater city that is a haven for humans, sirens, and a host of unknown otherworldly entities. And at least two of these ancient entities, the Light and the Shadows, are embroiled in a centuries-long battle for control.
Call Me Under is being developed by Lunaris Games and is set in a world infested with eldritch horrors and is soaked in dark magic, mystery, and romance. You play as one of two faceless protagonists, each with a different journey through Styx. The game features six individual romances, but you can also enter a polyamorous relationship or none at all if you prefer. 💖
All of the love interests are fully voiced, featuring a star-studded cast with actors famous for their roles in anime and other video games. Furthermore, the cast is incredibly diverse, featuring actors from marginalized backgrounds and under-represented gender identities.
Call Me Under was recently fully funded on Kickstarter. The team hopes to release the game late next year on Steam and Nintendo Switch, but you can still find a free demo of the game on Itch.
Trans people are cyberpunk 🌈
Normally, here's where I would talk about Up There They Love, the visual novel crossed with a character management sim that I’m working on. And I have made great strides these past two weeks that I'd love to share with you, but I'm afraid I have something more important to talk about this time.
In case you hadn't noticed, every project I've listed here today was made possible by people who identify as transgender. And that's because I believe that cyberpunk fiction that doesn't acknowledge transgender people is doing a disservice to the genre.
Think about it: matching your meatspace appearance to your online identity? Tinkering with your chemical balance? Knee-high socks? It's all very cyberpunk!
And so I hope that besides checking out these awesome games, you'll also consider donating to The Okra Project, which is helping to provide home-cooked meals to Black transgender people wherever they can reach them.
And that’s it for this Naughty List! Let me know what you would like to see me cover next in the comments. 📣
Until next time and stay sexy!
