The Canadian-based adult gaming website Nutaku has just announced the launch of their newest project, a crowdfunding platform for adult gaming. Named "Kimochi Red Light", Nutaku is aiming to create a platform for developers of adult games to have full reign over their projects, and not be censored by the policies and politics of other crowdfunding platforms.
The biggest appeal to Kimochi Red Light, however, is that the crowdfunding platform will not be taking any percentage of funding from campaigns hosted on the website; outside from payment processing chargers, developers will receive one hundred percent of their campaign funds. Additionally, Kimochi Red Light provides the option for both traditional "all or nothing" campaigns in the style of Kickstarter, or flexible funding found on Indiegogo.
Nutaku is very hopefully about the future success of their new project; Communications Manager Mia Mason had this to say about Kimochi Red Light:
"Kimochi Red Light is going to carve a new path for artists and game developers to create content as part of the rapidly emerging mature gaming market. Not only that but this platform is unlike any other because it's uncensored and uncompromising, just how art should be. We're thrilled to act as a non-profit catalyst for the industry and the gaming community."Since the beta period earlier this year in January, numerous projects have met or exceeded their crowdfunding goals through Kimochi Red Light. At the time of writing this article, eight projects are currently live on the platform for interested gamers to back:
- Episcava, from Epic Works.
- The Tower of Five Hearts and Virtual Ro:Mance, both from TsukiWare.
- Dimlight City: Brothel Builder, from Tiny Hat Studios.
- Karmasutra, from Top Hat Studios.
- Battle Girls and Echo Tokyo: Phoenix, both from Dharker Studio Ltd (who have also worked on the lingerie store management simulator Negligee).
- Phantasma Magic:Deluxe, from Adult Games Network.
- Alexa's Wild Night, from StudioX.
Disclosure: Nutaku provides perks for TechRaptor Pack Hunter members and TechRaptor participates in an affiliate linking program with the company.
