The Case of the Vanishing Entree

I was writing the other day that video game porn can be done, that it hasn't been done properly yet and that the best way to probably do it would be via a text adventure; a piece of interactive fiction if you prefer. Someplace else Anna Anthropy was busy creating those lovely indie offerings you can find over at auntie pixelante and was apparently wholly unaware of my writings. Can't blame her really...

Anyway. Thing is, despite being oblivious to my dream game, Anna Anthropy just released Encyclopedia Fuckme And The Case Of The Vanishing Entree, a game one could definitely describe as the first major step to quality porn, though she -the lovable dominatrix of indie gaming- does prefer to humbly call it a dirty game. Then again, an explicitly pornographic text-adventure game of the choose-your-own adventure sort and one that's handily playable for free in your browser, would be a more precise way of putting it.

Happily and very conveniently, as I actually am from a part of the world that never had Encyclopedia Brown books, I apparently don’t have to even sweat the title. Anna came up with it when almost the entire game was written and it really works on more than a few levels. Oh, and though definitely pornographic Encyclopedia Fuckme is far from arousing. It's tense and rather disturbing instead, though it does sport a few actually erotic scenes, which is, well, really nice indeed. Now, go play it; don't let me spoil it for you. Mind you, this could be considered NSFW in more than a few places.

  2. Uhm, I actually loved the game and so I can't really see why I'm a philistine really... Mind you, no amount of capital letters will convince me otherwise.

  4. Excellent recommendation. Though it still pisses me a little that all porn games I know of have to be some other thing besides porn. Like this one, with all that horror/thriller going on, and Gently with the comedy touch.

  5. @ Elderly: Uhm, you are a woman dear Elderly so that the game can successfully call itself a lesbian dating sim. And I'm pretty sure any knock will do. And here's a hint: go for the sexier/lustier options...

    @ David: Thank you and glad you enjoyed. And thanks a ton for the Gently recommendation; looks great so far. As for a pure porn game, I must admit that does sound very difficult to pull off. Still, one can always try...

  7. I remember Leather Goddesses of Phobos being an early and one of my only forays into the genre. That was pretty funny and I got most of it even though I was 9.

    @ Keeper Garrett: And it was a very good game too. Excellently written and brilliant in its naughtiness settings. Haven't played it in ages mind...
