Interactive dating games adult

NEC was behind its competitors in terms of hardware (with only 16 colors and no sound support) and needed a way to regain control of the market. The first commercial erotic computer game, Night Life, was released by Koei in 1982.Early eroge usually had simple stories, some even involving anal, which often led to widespread condemnation from the Japanese media.

Eroge was much less common on consoles - only NEC's PC Engine series had officially licensed adult games, and from the mid-90s, Sega's Saturn.

Both Nintendo and Sony disallowed adult video games on their consoles.

The eroge company Nitro has a division that produces exclusively BL games, known as Nitro CHi RAL.

They have produced the BL games Sweet Pool, Lamento: Beyond the Void, Togainu no Chi and Dramatical Murder, each one of the last two have been given a manga and an anime adaptation.

In 2002 a 13-episode anime series was produced, as well as another 24-episode anime series in 2006.

According to Satoshi Todome's A History of Eroge, Kanon is still the standard for modern eroge and is referred to as a "baptism" for young otaku in Japan.

Usually the sexual content is presented as a reward for the player's successful fulfillment of certain tasks.

Like other pornographic media in Japan, erotic scenes feature censorship of genitalia, only becoming uncensored if the game is licensed and released outside Japan, unless produced illegally by doujin (usually with a construction kit like NScripter or RPG Maker).

As with yaoi manga, the major market is assumed to be female.

Games aimed at a homosexual male audience may be referred to as bara.

In some of the early erotic games, the erotic content is meaningfully integrated into a thoughtful and mature storytelling, though others often used it as a flimsy excuse for pornography.
