          Promo abridged clips are usually free, but if you want the full 30+ minute scene, you pay for a membership/VOD download or get it from someone who did (which confirm's anon's point). Ever notice a lot of porn is flipped horizontally or has the logo blurred? It's technically illegal.

      I think what you guys misunderstand about Hentai is that not all content is porn like a Nukige, or even generic porn if you look around on Mangagamer and JASTUSA some are Eroge with mostly story and some porn elements embedded into it. What makes it hilarious is that it has more fanservice and kino moments that everyone complains is missing from current day Anime Games. I do not mind paying for them on MG or JAST because the prices are cheaper than modern AAA. There is short 4 hour experiences for 14$ 20 for 24$ and basically 50-60 hours for 40$. The only thing that demands 50$ is Rance, Euphoria and also Maggot Baits. But those are long games but with a lot of story in it with some porn. Even things like Goro exist with Tokyo Necro and Maggot Baits.

        Weirdest thing about hentai to me...for example, for me I would never be caught dead defending the porn industry or the porn I watch. It's something I try to avoid doing, something I recognize is degenerate and bad for me both mentally and spiritually. Even on an anonymous website I would never defend my porn use, my porn taste, anything about it. It's something I bear in silence and in shame. But Hentai addicts and fans of the hentai games will go through this level of copium to defend their sexual deviancy. They'll try to convince you it's actually good content, good stories, good gameplay, and will rush onto anonymous message boards in droves to defend what is just simply coomer brainrot.

          There are other places that do and if one wants to produce such content you'll always be migrating to new platforms and just plan to do so as soon as said platform is getting bigger and definitely get out before it gets bought by a corp. There is a reason people hop ship on a platform. It's because it's about to turn to shit. Pay attention to this and you can avoid the drama and make whatever weird shit is in your head to your hearts content.

                The va for the pictured character voices e-girls in actual hentai games, where she herself is a e-girlcon.
                She has 2 kids. and is in her 40s. No weird news about her children either or any such nonsense.
                Quite a healthy relationship with her husband, and still at times does LO voices.

          Steam used to allow it in some games few years ago. Then some shits happen, and they didn't allow games to release uncensored patches anymore. Because of that, developers (or translators, I guess?) decided to release the patches outside Steam, but then Steam still rejects some games from time to time without any reasons (some autists found that the game will be rejected if the reviewer is that one guy).

            I wish they did like GOG and allowed the unrated patches in their store that unlocks the porn. I don't know how GOG can do it tbh.

            Steam literally rejects many eroges. There used to be an uncensored patch, but some games were rejected because of having the patch.

            I think overall Steam isn't rejecting many on the grounds they are eroge, or that they are uncensored etc...a lot of it I saw a couple years ago came down to Steam implementing an "Adults Only" flag. Prior to this, even eroge could be on the main store with high visibility provided the porn was not included, so you got things like all ages versions with after market uncensored patches (even those where the dev had a Steam forum for their game sticky topic saying where to get the uncensored patch from their website and how to install it etc). Some games from this era were grandfathered in, but after they started the Adults Only flagging and allowed full porn uncensored, they started to crack down on devs trying to evade this shit. For instance, having a censored version so your game isn't invisible to all those under 18 accounts and anyone who wasn't specifically selecting they wanted to see porn, and thus getting a MUCH wider default advertising - but then having an uncensored patch that unlocks the porn. That is seen as trying to evade the proper categorization for marketing exposure reasons, and thus is breaking the rules so a lot of games get warned or taken down if they try, whereas if they had just put the full uncensored version from the start and properly flagged as AO it woud have been fine.

            There are some other games that Steam banned for varying reasons, some of which being publisher bullshit or other stuff, and very few of them that were basically e-girl or other "it appears you're fricking a prepubescent elementary schooler and there's no plausible deniability" games and they don't want that kind of heat on them, even in the porn section, but aside from that they don't ban very much eroge or porn titles and in fact many of them even get sales and other stuff. I was surprised to see Cloud Meadow discounted and included/advertised along the other farming games in the recent sale, but it was neat to see.

      Cracks remove DRM but it doesn't remove any built-in metrics and data gathering a game might have. He's talking about VNs so it probably doesn't apply but pretty much every Unity game has automatic data gathering. It's anonymized of course, but it's still something. This is why you should firewall your shit.

      There are quite a few decent pixel metroidvanias and other RPGs that have well done other game systems. A lot of stuff published by Critical Bliss seems to fall int othis category.

      >Tower and Sword of Succubus
      Zelda/Crystalis style adventure/RPG
      >Midnight Castle Succubus
      Zelda 2 Adventure of Link / Castlevania Simon's Quest style adventure
      >Castle in the Clouds
      Same as above + metroidvania type exploration All of the above 3 are made by the same dev, and each game varies enough to make them all worth it. Have all be updated with DX/updated versions and supported

      >Scarlet Maiden
      Roguelike adventure/progression in the vein of a porn Rogue Legacy
      >Flip Witch Forbidden Sex Hex
      Metroidvania progression kinda like Castle in the Clouds.

      All of the above are kind of similar in presentation, but there are some difference in gameplay and other mechanic as well a the aesthetic

      >Cloud Meadow
      Stardew Valley-esq farm/homestead building and maintaining + JRPG battles kinda Breath of Fire like, and dungeons + monster breeding, collection, and other mechanics systems. Its in EA and not done, but its coming along though it seem to be taking a long time; I got it on sale recently and it seems worthwhile so far.
      >Aurelia
      Coming out soon apparently, it has a retro CRPG look to it and well detailed pixel art like an old computer title in a way tha's unique compared to a lot of other porn . It also will have fantasy RPG mechanics and progression etc.

      So those are a few that are not just visual novels.

    When people say piracy affects sales what they imply is that if pirating wasn't an option all those 495 thousand people would have paid for the game. But that's obviously not true. Some probably would.
    The fact that it costs nothing is THE selling point of piracy. And there are other ways to spend your time besides this game, many of which are free.

The only way I'm escaping from localizer hell is learning Japanese which is taking time. Giving the gay who translated Nukitashi money actually lowered my enjoyment of the VN.

      Even when the game and porn is good, it's often priced higher that what I'd pay just to support the dev too.
      I don't blame the developers entirely. Sites like DLsite rape them with high service fees that are higher at low prices so the developer risks making less overall money if the increase in sales doesn't overcome both the lower price and the higher service cut.

    Should've sold it on Steam or purchasable through PayPal. Kagura and MangoParty do well doing that.
    A lot of the games I get off F95 are usually inaccessible anyways

    Besides that, if it's just CG's or light animation, you may as well just ignore the game entirely and just download the galleries straight out of Sad Panda.

    Porn games are loosely tied to the worst parts of any "gaming" genre.
    You have visual novels that are purely just clicking through smut and the only game part that can be considered is sometimes you have choices. You have the renpy weg VNs that have you go through a bunch of bloated "resource management" clicks to maintain your playthrough where you only "play" a VN with extra tedium in it for zero reason.
    Then there's all the RPGmaker games, half baked unity and unreal games, where the gameplay is again 90% clicking. And that would make sense for a porn game right? Make everything one handed. But then you consider that the games and their gameplay are so generic and boring that you're again just going through VNs with extra steps. The combat is almost always super easy to get through, and worst of all, the amount of CG content available isn't worth the hours you'll spend on the game.
    Then there's the somewhat polished action games that are better games than they are porn, and again suffer from overall pornographic content. Or realistically just about everything in porn gaming lacks erotic integrity. It's so hard to find something that really gets you going. Stuff that does well with the true basics of erotic content tends to be in much lower quantity. And so you're forced to look to more fetishistic content because at least then it's targeted to what you like so it doesn't have to be good it just has to be exactly what you want.

    Paying for porn games is probably the worst offense out of them all. There are genuine passion projects that get full releases, but the reality remains that most "releases" have been following the taint of subscriber based porn games and people would rather just rip you off and release incomplete or halfbaked ideas that will be on life support longer than Star Citizen's development time. Finding a game worth your money is like stepping in a minefield that sets off a chain reaction upon failure. there are barely any porn games worth money

    There's a lot of factors to take into account though. As someone probably already said, piracy is mostly a service problem and these games, coming from DLsite and other japanese hosts will more often than not be difficult to access and navigate as a foreigner. Even with that being a big problem, there's also the fact that it's porn and most people are completely absent from paying for it since it's the kind of content that is abundant online with most of the people consuming it not paying a whole lot of attention to. It's mostly disposable for them.
    Now, I imagine that's also a culture problem since Japan has a pretty strong market for this kind of stuff, which would make it so wanting to acquire it and not pirate it to be more prevailing. So, if anything, that'll just discourage studios from translating their stuff instead

        Ah, that's good to hear. I don't play a whole lot of VNs so I haven't come across something that was there. But it's good that some sites take that extra effort to make it easier to use. Even tho DLsite has an english version and everything, the site design is still very japanese so I remember reading about how some people had problems with it.

        Those pirates are non-japanese who can't buy their shit and can't understand their language aka non buyers, non-target audience

        That's usually one of the core aspects of someone pirating something. You're not exactly losing money if the person that pirated it wasn't gonna buy it in the first place.

    When it comes to hentai games, besides people being willing to pirate porn more than anything else, I think some of the biggest reasons are the fact most are not in english or there is some shitty MTL patch and thats it. No one wants to pay for something that cant even be understood, also the fact is most porn games suck ass especially for the price thats being asked of them. Honestly for most porn, even $5 is pushing it, but i've some shitty RPG Maker games try and charge $20 for something that essentially 2 hours of content. No one wants to pay that much for something might satisfy them for 5 minutes.

    It's an abstract kind of pain. I don't even want the money for it, I just want to finish it without it being solely text-based...
    I need an outlet for my horny, and I am hurt by my lack of artistic knowledge beyond MSpaint.

        Money. If I don't expect to make cash back, I'm not throwing cash at the project when I don't have enough in my savings account to warrant it.

      I use that tactic to send dildos and gay porn to gangbangers in prison who slighted me. I hope they got fricked up when the mailroom told on them.

        that's literally just more shady than pirating, except now you're spending money too.

    I download tons of shit because it's free. When I have to pay for things I download much much much less shit. I'd only play 3 games a year if I had to pay for everything. Does every game maker truly believe they'll be in the top 3 over millions of other choices? They need a reality check.

    This is why we'll never get high-effort porn games.
    There's so many free ways to get porn that people don't put monetary value on it.

      If you like furgays stuff, Carnal Instinct is taking forever but has quarterly content updates. It's visually stunning and has some good sexo.

      The opposite. Because they need to compete on quality to get people to value hoping for a sequel instead of just going with something free they aren't able to intentionally make it shit. See: all AAA garbage. Devs get wienery and abusive when they make lots of money.

    50k seems pretty fricking great for a porn game.
    I'd have to see the game in question, but I'm going to guess it was some RPG maker shit with CGs as is the norm.

    why... wouldn't you just add DRM to your game? we're like 20 years into normalizing piracy, it's honestly impressive that 50,000 people bought an h-game in 2024.

    the only shit i want to buy i find out is doing bucks on patreon. they are fine

    if its some high quality niche shit its always peak degeneracy so im not going to support that

    the only good case for buying still is if the game has actual gameplay and combines it well with the coom elements like "Seed of the Dead"

    Most people don't want to give their bank information to whatever weirdass storefront sells porn games. People forget that many hesitate to buy games from anywhere that isn't steam, let alone something like dlsite which doesn't even accept paypal.

    Make a hentai game actually worth paying for then, God DAMN.
    There has not yet been a decent, well-made, uncensored, limitless-possibility AAA hentai game and I find that extremely strange because such a studio would sell buku bucks and become a global pioneer

    Reminder that PIRACY IS COMMUNISM.

    'The collaborative development of free software like the Linux operating system and applications such as OpenOffice clearly approximate an informational anarchist communism. Moreover, for anarchists it is precisely the logic of expropriation and electronic piracy that enables a radical political extension of the cultural ideals of the free manipulation, circulation and use of information associated with the "hacker ethic" (Himanen 2001). The space of illegality created by P2P (peer-to-peer) file-sharing opens up the possibility, not only of the open circulation of freely-given information and software as it is on the Internet today, but also of conscious copyright violation. The Internet, then, enables not only communist relations around information, but also the militant contamination and erosion of non-communist regimes of knowledge—a technological "weapon" to equalise access to information, eating away at intellectual property rights by rendering them unenforceable'.

    If people can't afford it they're going to steal it in modern society. If you've got some actual solutions to this that have not already been attempted and failed or produced very minor results please do tell. Retail theft is at all time highs across most modernized countries, same for grocery stores.

    Adapt to the market, the successful porn games are not the ones on steam and well, steam kind of stifles it as a platform with their weird this is censored but not that nonsense to not cross the line too much to cause them litigation issues. The problem isn't going to be solved in terms of piracy completely but frequent updates over subscription / live service seems to be doing much better for Eroge in the current market. I hope the devs find ways to adapt and become profitable as I don't think they've got much of a chance of stopping non-EU/US countries to ever stop and that is the majority of it.

    And no people getting rips of their ROMs to have a better gameplay experience shouldn't be considered 'pirating'. It was not a loss of sale if the person has purchased the console and game. And that is what the core issue is: Loss of a sale. If there already was a sale, you got your money. If the person lives in a country they cannot buy your game, you could not have made that sale legally, are you asking to be allowed to commit criminal acts?

    H-games need a better distribution model than traditional games. I think they'd find more success from services like fanbox where people support the production of the game as opposed to relying on sales upon release.

    If hentai games and shows weren't the lowest effort garbage on the planet I might feel bad. But I don't. It's been 30 years and we have yet to see anything that can match Monster Girl Quest or Rance in gameplay, or La Blue Girl in animation.
