Sexy space RPG Subverse has received a developer update detailing some of its upcoming content. The game will be getting improvements to its Pandora hub, contextual sex scenes, and difficulty settings for its space combat, plus lots more.

What has this new Subverse dev update revealed?

This update was delivered in the form of a Steam Q&A with Subverse CTO Tibor. In the Q&A, Tibor says nothing has changed since Subverse's Early Access release earlier this year; his team is still committed to "pushing the boundaries for adult gaming" in mainstream culture. He confirms that the lewd space RPG is getting contextual sex scenes, which are "the single most demanded feature" in the game. In essence, these scenes will mean a unique sex scene with each of the Subverse waifus. Those'll be added in Subverse 1.0, which is coming (pun intended) at some point in the future.

Tibor also says that Subverse's Pandora hub is getting some improvements for the 1.0 release. These improvements will include new outfits, more sound variation in sex scenes, and "fluid system improvements" (we'll let you make your mind up as to what that means). When it comes to sex scenes, Tibor also goes into a little detail regarding StudioFOW's decision not to implement free camera control across the board. Essentially, it necessitates far more animations being created than the studio's relatively small number of devs can realistically take on. Despite this, Tibor says there will be some free camera control elements present in Subverse 1.0.

What about Subverse combat? What do we know about that?

If you're reading about this extremely NSFW sexy space RPG and wondering how the combat is faring, don't worry, as Tibor provides some updates in that regard as well. He says the team is looking to introduce difficulty levels for the space combat, as some users have said it's too easy and others have claimed it's too hard (insert "hard" joke here). Again, this is earmarked for Subverse 1.0, so you might have to wait a little while for more news about that.

It's worth checking out the full Q&A for more changes, as Tibor details other features coming to Subverse like Chinese language support, cinematic subtitles, and replayable missions, among other things. There are, however, two things that are conspicuous by their absence: any kind of time frame for Subverse 0.9 and 1.0, and an update on the state of the Subverse roadmap. Both of these things were promised in the previous dev diary, so it's a bit of a shame they're absent here. Still, we might get to learn more about them in the upcoming dev diary that's been promised for November 17th. Stay tuned for more info on that.

What is Subverse?

Subverse is a lewd adult RPG developed by StudioFOW, who describe themselves as "degenerate neckbeards" and "filthy apex perverts". As you can imagine, this isn't one for the faint of heart or the sex-negative. It's a fully-fledged PC gaming experience in which you'll be able to recruit lots of waifus, all of whom you can, er, "romance". There will also be space combat and turn-based ground skirmishes, as well as "cuddling", according to the devs. Aww, that's nice.

Subverse was originally Kickstarted back in 2019, where it raised around $2.2 million. After some debate over whether it would launch in Early Access, Subverse launched in that state in March, with a full release promised for some time in the future. We don't yet know when we're going to be able to play Subverse 1.0. In the meantime, you can grab the game on Steam right now, where it'll set you back $29.99.
