Adult gaming website Nutaku announced today the launch of its downloadable adult games storefront, the first online distribution platform dedicated to bringing sexually explicit gaming to players around the world. Featuring titles from Japanese and North American developers such as OVERDRIVE and Moonstone, the Nutaku store offers adult gamers a Steam-like experience where purchases are tied to on-site accounts and can be downloaded at will. All titles sold on the site will be offered at discounts ranging from 20-50% off previously listed prices.
“The Nutaku store is a direct response to the high level of content restriction on distribution services such as Steam,” said spokesperson Robert Mann. “With this new service, adult game developers will no longer be forced to choose between mass distribution or compromising their artistic vision. We want to give both fans and creators a censorship-free space to collaborate.”
The games storefront is the first stage in Nutaku’s adult games distribution campaign, which will also feature a downloadable client scheduled for launch in Q3 of 2016. Boasting friends lists, achievements, and other social features, the client will link to users’ Nutaku store accounts and offer an easy-to-browse games library.
Since its launch in late 2014, Nutaku has swiftly grown to over 13 million users per month by hosting online games with an adult focus. Partnered with Japanese gaming giant DMM, Nutaku currently serves as a conduit for overseas game developers whose products are considered too controversial or explicit for traditional North American game distributors.
