Just like that "adult" app that was developed for Google Glass, someone was bound to develop a naughty game to take advantage of the Oculus Rift VR headset. The developer is named Wicked Paradise, and describes its upcoming title as the world's first fully immersive erotic virtual reality adventure game. Instead of watching an erotic movie or reading an erotic book where you serve as merely an observer, the game makes you the actual main character.
"Imagine playing Leisure Suit Larry but instead of watching a screen, you are inside the game," reads the game's description. "Imagine the world and its inhabitants look highly realistic. Imagine walking into a bar in Wicked Paradise, noticing a beautiful lady, talking to her, and seducing her. Imagine playing your cards right and having passionate wild sex with her."
Oh my again.
As someone who has used the Oculus Rift twice since January, there's no question as to how immersive this game will get. Just last week I got a chance to play Half-Life 2 using the Rift, and I had forgotten what it was like standing side-by-side with a NPC. Unlike the demo shown at CES, this NPC actually talked (I can't remember the exactly timeline this scenario takes place), and it's somewhat unsettling. Your brain is tricked into thinking this person really is standing next to you, but when you reach out in the real world, there's nothing but air (unless someone actually sneaks up).
That said, just imagine a game like the one in development by Wicked Paradise. Instead of watching in third person, you're in the middle of the action in first person. Virtual girls and guys are literally in your face. Kinda.
So who are those behind this VR erotica? Check this out. "Wicked Paradise consists of a team of seasoned video game industry veterans with dozens of shipped AAA titles under our belts such as Rage, the Call of Duty series, Lost Planet, Madden, PlanetSide 2, and many many more," reads the company description. Yep, mostly first-person shooter vets… how about that!
"We are all very excited about the future of digital entertainment and are using our years of experience creating the highest quality videogames to create an erotic virtual reality adventure game that will blow your socks off!" the description adds.

I wonder how Oculus will react, Steam pulled an x-rated game for being x-rated, and Google did the same with with their Glass iirc. I doubt Oculus could even stop it if they wanted to, unless they add something to their drivers, which doesn't seem likely.Reply
until they link this with other dirty technology out there, pointlessReply
Did anyone not see this coming?Reply
Imagine playing your cards right and having passionate wild sex with her.
imagine telling your room mate you just banged the hottest babe you ever had last. then imagine his confusion, and eventual realization that you haven't left the apartment the whole weekend or how he or his girlfriend has not seen any other women in the apartment in that period. now imagine his sarcastic, smug response on how that doesn't count.
and imagine Japan.......... that's all really. the joke just writes itself there.
but x-rated content is one of the reasons i'm interested :(Reply
Not sure how good it will be but it surely looks interesting.Reply
Virtual reality and x-rated contenet? sounds like a lucrative bussines to me...
x-rated virtual reality MMO :D.
Honestly, I don't really care whether the device is / can be used for x-rated content... to the contrary: I'd appreciate if a wealthy industry like that will push funds to the developers of the Rift, directly or indirectly. For example, I'd definitely buy that $100 xxx-title if it comes with a (unlocked!) Rift for free :-DReply
imagine an open world-format like Just Cause 2, where you can interact with every npc in the world, twisted into a XXX game... hmmmmmm crazyReply
You pervs make me sick! This Oculus Rift is used for new immersion of GAMES and other fun and useful entertainment.. not PORN you sickos. I mean really, how hornbally do you have to be to put this on and start wacking off like a jerk? Seriously... it's just mind boggling..Reply
If you build it, porn will come.Reply
