Sex video game Subverse hits $2 million in crowdfunding

Last year, US company Valve caused controversy when it announced that there would be a new “anything goes” policy on Steam, which would allow the sale of many adult video games on the company’s digital storefront without restriction. And now that we are approaching the second half of 2019, the flood of sex games on Steam shows no sign of abating, with Subverse being the latest game to see a release soon.

This comes in the wake of a very successful Kickstarter campaign (which is now closed), during which almost 60,000 backers pledged more than $2 million US dollars for the development of the game, as was recently reported on

Shockingly enough, Subverse managed to raise more cash than high-profile games such as Kingdom Come: Deliverance, showing that interest in the game is pretty high.

And judging by the non-explicit trailer below, Subverse looks a bit like Mass Effect, although obviously we can expect the sex scenes in the game to be far more detailed and explicit than those in Bioware’s award-winning sci-fi video games.

Subverse also has twin-stick shooter gameplay, while the rest plays as a sci-fi RPG set aboard a spaceship which has you trying to seduce a team of gorgeous “waifus” which you recruit for your mission, and eventually get to have sex with.

Subverse has no exact release date as of yet, although according to the game’s Steam page it is expected to enter Early Access this summer. It remains to be seen, though, whether this will be a classy adult game or an old pile crap like many games of this nature turn out to be, but fingers crossed Subverse will at least turn out to be something decent when it’s released later this year.
