HTML5 Games - Rated M or 18+ only

Hi everyone!

My name is Jesse Adams, co-founder at MiKandi , the world's largest Adult App Store (warning: site is NSFW). We were recently in the news for the first adult app for Google Glass and now the first third party Chrome app store called MiKandi Mint List (also very NSFW). Adult games is our most popular category on our online portal and search terms related to adult games (i.e. hentai) comprise many of the top ten search queries in our app store. So I wanted to reach out to the community here and hopefully connect with game designers and developers who are interested or are already developing html5 adult games.

We're really excited about the progress of HTML5 for adult game development, so right now we're exploring different ways to help grow the market. We're interested in commissioning games, collaborations or just simply helping with marketing/distribution. For example we can provide coding help such as integrating our adult-friendly in-app billing APIs, bring advertisers, etc. Or for developers who need design help, we can provide high quality assets, such as custom art and/or high quality adult videos and photos. If this sounds fun and exciting to you, let's talk. If you prefer, you can also reach me privately at [email protected]

cheers!

Wow, I had no idea about this market, it seems a good opportunity. I doubt about it, do adult games make good money?

This made me smile a little.

Actually I would think that you'd probably do better on desktop, rather than mobile, which would fit in with the current state of things.


Are we talking strip poker, or Super Meat Boy as it should have been?

@newt,

You are responsible for the coffee all over my keyboard! I blew it out my nose laughing at the super meat boy remark.
Thanks for the laugh!

Well HTML5 is a good move for interactive entertainment as the current standard flash is bulky, although it is a good "All in One" program that allows native (flash vector) animation along with scripting. It also allows small downloads of single files that can be used offline as well (SWF files VS Node-Webkit mandatory min 30MB), however that's the PC market and I assume someone could make a "Node-Webkit Player" like there's a flash player (Since you don't download the player every SWF file) Some web-centric sites might even like that limitation to prevent piracy.

Spriter would probably be a needed plugin with the articulation and animations you can program with it.
Although I am unsure how much help this community could do as it's the official forums and adult content is kinda touchy. I suggest -if you haven't already- having people from adult communities try out C2 to see if they could use the software adequately to their vision.


I don't know if gaming/HTML5 would be like other medias with adult content being at the forefront of change in media methods. (Blue Ray and HD content are good examples of the Adult Industry leading media change) However the more of the web that uses HTML5 the better.Thndr2013-10-15 18:55:58

I'd love to hear about the kind of games you're expecting on your platform.
Do you want puzzle games, strip poker/solitaire, memory, etc, or do you want something more like dating sims and hentai VNs?
Or perhaps something more game-y altogether? I'm guessing visitors are looking more for porn than for games, but maybe that's just a prejudice.

(Mom, if you are reading this, stop now, please)

Adult gaming is something I don't know a lot about, but from what I've saw, there are mostly board games, interactive animations, or visual novels, sometimes featuring non-human characters like ponies in extreme cases (How I know that? Mom, I said stop reading ;_;).

The point is that there are a lot of categories possible for those kind of games, but I think people search these games essentially to find:

-potential good gameplay
-good story and characters
-Graphic style that make you think "I can do everything you want *p*"
-naughty things (can vary, better if they can choose)
-an ending that satisfy them, by satisfy I mean them feeling it was good to be there playing that

yes, That is what I can think of, otherwise, they wouldn't search for interactive contents

(this list don't apply easily for board games, of course)
Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.

Yes, of course! You may think I'm biased , but it's definitely a large market and as an app store operator we personally see huge demand for adult mobile games from our users (we have bout 4.5 million users). Just for reference, take a look at the high play counts of the flash games on sites like newgrounds.com and other portals. On PC, adult games and a CG videos enjoy a strong fanbase. A large part of how adult game publishers make money though is not only straight sales of their game, but also earning affiliate rev-share on subscriptions sites that host more games and content.

On mobile, we're just in the beginning stages. We think it will grow faster on mobile than it ever did on PC, because within a few years more players around the world will discover your games first on a mobile device than PC and plus the private, but interactive and touch-screen experience is just too perfect for adult games

Ha! Actually both types would be well received. For example some of the top search terms related to games are:

hentai, boobs, stripping, poker, virtual girls/guys, dating sims, puzzles, strip poker, interactive comics. Plenty more, (adult entertainment is highly personal than mainstream), but maybe too explicit to mention here.
