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:

    So how do they make money then?

  • Sarusig Musicman

    Just a guess, but I assume the games will be sold on Nutaku and/or have some exclusive stuff on there?

    Also on the topic of censorship, I’m fairly sure I’ve seen a few porn games/artists on Patreon. Some very high funded ones actually.

    Edit: Now that I’ve gone through some of the campaigns, I see that quite a few of the games are set to “release on Steam”. So I assume the model is “SFW version on standard platforms, NSFW on Nutaku”.

  • MT Silver

    Right. Of course. I didn’t consider that. Thank you.

  • coboney

    Ya the advantage of having a store back it is that they make their money on the game releasing and doing sales rather then needing to take it pre-emptively

  • LimmyWinks

    Brothel Builder looks neat.

  • Hey I’m a dev of one of the crowdfunding projects my project is not a nutaku exclusive. I also suggested there could be a steam thing still cause steam still occupies a lot of sales for projects that have both content versions. That and various people still demand steam keys or steam versions for press or youtuber sake. You can take the reason for Nutaku not making money is so more devs can go on to make games and sell them;d or at least one of the reasons.
