Project H’s Fallen Doll is a masterful display of game presentation done right. Erika, our slutty and submissive heroine, remains to be the perfect companion to endure through your devious fantasies. She fulfills a dichotomy that most of us yearn for: a cutesy lovable companion that’s submissive and anything but innocent.
Love at first sight, eh?
Now, before you jump into the game and gush some love into each of Erika’s holes, let me hit you with some technicalities. I’ve already meticulously reviewed the game before and praised the game’s production value as its core strength. The only qualm I mentioned at the time was the VR integration. Thankfully, Project H listened to users feedback and in the months following my review they significantly refined the VR experience. The difference is night and day. Here is a closer look at some of the game-changing improvements Project H has added since my last review.
POV mode is here! It’s now easy to switch between voyeur and PoV mode in the game. Considering the wealth of voice-acted animated content at work here, this was a feature that greatly affected people’s first impressions in the past. Finally, it’s here, it’s immersive, and it’s super-duper easy to use. What more can you want?
A new simpler, more streamlined, and accessible UI is now the game’s control hub. It might sound intimidating to have every game option on one menu, but the way it’s laid out is quite self-explanatory and lends itself to accessibility. Options, poses, scenes, game mods, etc. are all distinctly present but separate and allow for a wholesome UI experience. Changes are still coming to further improve the UI, but it’s definitely a better than average experience in its current state.
Erika is a beauty with a lot to offer, but if her looks aren’t up to snuff for your specific tastes, then you’ll be glad to know that there are a bunch of customization options that alter her appearances further. These come in the form of multiple hair options, clothing pieces, body morphs, etc. and do a great job at adjusting her appearances at a moments notice.
Beyond Erika, there are customization options for the male silhouette as well with opacity options to hide him during raunchy scenes or certain PoV situations as to immerse the viewer into the action. It’s a minor but welcome addition that makes a big difference.
Fallen Doll is a content-rich game. It has more content in its current state than any full priced adult VR game out there, period. And Project Helius keeps adding more content! They’ve just added a new location, a couple of hairstyles and a lot(and I mean a lot!) of new animations. The game is a content hub, and the developers are consistently adding new features. It’s fucking amazing! Also, kudos to Project Helius for being so embracing of community suggestions. Fallen Doll is an immensely rich and unique VR experience as a result.
Fallen Doll is a top-tier CGI VR game that’s a pleasure to play. VR porn games of this caliber are far and few in between. While a few bugs are still present and some of the controls have a learning curve, the overall improvements are game-changing. It’s a delight to play in PoV with all the new content. I say now more than ever: Do yourself a favor and play it!
Thanks for reading! If you haven’t tried it already, you can play the latest version of Fallen Doll VR right here on VRPorn.com. Free members get a fun demo that showcases the game’s basic mechanics. Premium members get a more in-depth version of the game that includes more content and customization options. If you enjoyed the game, be sure to check out the full experience, both in desktop mode and VR, on the developers Patreon!
Adorably lewd, super immersive, and unexpectedly comical. Poke Abby is a distinctively different experience from what you’d typically expect from a virtual reality porn game. It’s a short experience, filled to the brim with well-executed novelty concepts, sexy customization, and super polished animations that prompt more than one playthrough. There’s a lot more to the production values than what meets the eyes when it comes to Poke Abby by OxoPotion. The grand feature of the game? Abby’s world.
Poke Abby is staged in a whimsical classroom where Abby, our resident college whore, loves to sneak into while no one is watching. You, as the resident ghost of Autumnhearth, notice Abby has been a rather naughty girl. With her ass temptingly sticking out, you poke, fondle and caress her body in order to punish her only to have her spread her legs, embracing your cock lovingly for a super lewd finale.
While the plot might sound absurd, it does an excellent job of setting up a narrative for the game. Abby’s slutty expressions are exaggerated and the minimal UI make for a super immersive CGI experience. Furthermore, the interaction element of this game in VR is fantastic. It’s as hands on, literally, as it gets. Fondle away, champ!
It’s not often an adult VR game as unique as Poke Abby makes it’s presence known. Everything about this game resounds with artistry and polish. Stylistically, Poke Abby blows every other game out of the water with its visual aesthetics. From the very start, the game beautifully pops with quirky assets driven by a cartoony twist. It’s lewd fun at it’s best. Also! It’s free. So what are you waiting for?!? Put your headset on, take your dick out, and play it now!
VRLove is an adult virtual reality game with big ambitions. It’s a girlfriend experience gone rogue. You can play it slowly through ‘Story Mode’ or fuck endlessly in ‘Free Mode’.
With pornstar-based characters, an interesting narrative, and an upcoming multiplayer mode, this VR porn game sounds promising. But is it any good? Let’s take a closer look.
Currently, the game offers two game modes: ‘Story Mode’ and ‘Free Mode’.
‘Story mode’ offers an immersive story and a compelling backdrop to the game’s visuals. Your girlfriend is a CGI rendition of Armarna Miller. The narrative sucks you in, and there is nothing like it as far as adult VR games go. It’s a really cool feature of this game that I hope they explore more as the game develops. In its current state, it’s rather short-lived though.
On the other hand, ‘Free Mode’ is more of a typical game mode. Through your virtual phone, you invite girls over for a good time and experience the game’s devious mechanics. You interact, flirt, and fuck. It’s straightforward and fun.
The graphics look much better in VR than in the screenshots. Thanks to Unreal Engine 4’s capabilities, the lighting is good, the animations are diverse, and the environments are distinctive. The characters can use some work though. There have been talks about some sort of graphical upgrades in the future, so that’s something to look forward to. The immersion factor makes the game look much better in virtual reality than in desktop mode, so make sure you have a headset if you decide to pick this game up.
A ‘girlfriend experience’ vibe is persistent throughout both of the game’s modes. Along with the controller based interaction systems, this allows for a relatively unique experience. After creating your character, you can get super creative with the customization options. The game has been undergoing active development lately, so we probably don’t need to worry about a content shortage.
The interface is decent but polished. Don’t get me wrong, there are a few pesky bugs here and there, but none of them are game-breaking or too much of a nuisance and this is all expected for a game under development.
If you’re looking for a different experience, then give this game a shot. It’s brimming with ambition, and that makes up for some of its graphical shortcomings. Ultimately, the game’s success will depend on where the developers decide to take it from here. The story mode is short and free mode is somewhat limited, but as a package that’s consistently receiving updates, the game is worth keeping on your radar.
The future looks very promising if the developers behind VRLove continue to make progress.
Virt-A-Mate is a highly customizable CGI virtual reality adult simulator. In it, you can create whatever your heart desires when it comes down to virtual deviance. Though, if you don’t have the time or simply don’t feel up to it, there is a wealth of community created content out there waiting to be installed. This is a guide for just that!
You can find and download community created scene files from the VirtAMate scenes page on VRPorn.com
Expect two files when you download a VAM scene/appearance: a .json and .jpeg file. The .json file contains the scene’s data while the jpeg file contains it’s in-game “thumbnail image.” Make sure both their names match, the only difference being the file format.
If it’s the newer .vac file, then that’s the only file you need to load the scene.
Move both scene files into the “scene” sub-directory located in your Virt-A-Mate folder:
If you are installing appearances, as in a certain look for one of your characters, instead, then place your .json and .jpeg image into:
For scenes, open up the menu then go to Main Menu > Load Scene. Your scene should now be ready to go!
For appearances, select the Person node in Edit Mode. “Load Look…” will be on the top left. Your installed data will be listed, ready for use.
And you’re done!
Updated on October 3, 2018.
Virt-A-Mate‘s latest update finally brought in one of the most awaited features since release: Sound!
The final fundamental piece of the puzzle is here! And the way it’s implemented is bound to get you scratching your head. Sources?! Collision Triggers?! Dynamic URLs?!? How does any of this relate to sound? In typical MeshedVR fashion, not everything is what it seems– but with a little bit of trial and error – you’ll be glad that MeshedVR took this approach.
The new sound features bring scene creators the necessary tools to be sonically creative. Though with a steep learning curve, this comes at a price. It takes a fair bit of tinkering to manage the relationships between a collision trigger, audio source, rhythm force producers, and how to parent them properly. This update, in it’s current form, definitely isn’t newbie friendly.
For those who chug through it though: It’s one of the most game-changing updates the game has received thus far. Get through the initial turmoil to learn the ins and outs of these features, and you’ll be rewarded with a flexible system that unleashes a world of possibilities.
While the game comes with new ’embedded’ sounds, adding your own is also an option. This addition is huge. Imagine what community creators could do with all these new tools. At that point making your own scenes might not even be necessary; the Virt-A-Mate content creation community is super creative and driven, and they’re bound to have these features figured out soon. That’s definitely something to look forward to in the near future!
For those without virtual reality headsets, Virt-A-Mate is now playable in ‘Desktop Mode,’ a stripped down version of the virtual reality rendition. It’s primary purpose, I assume, is to present a snippet of Virt-A-Mate’s versatility to a new audience. For what it is, it’s a great addition to what is already a feature packed CGI simulator.
Virt-A-Mate’s latest update is one of the most exciting updates yet. It completes the game’s fundamental features by adding the final piece of the puzzle. By adding diverse tools, MeshedVR insures that content creators will have a lot of options when it comes down to getting deviously creative. Now it’s just a matter of adding features that build upon the solid foundation currently in place.
Virt-A-Mate‘s latest has finally arrived! With it, comes a generous amount of new customization features and content updates. But was it really worth fifty days worth of waiting? Let’s find out!
There’s lots to cover here!
First off, a new bedroom environment is now available. It has a modern aesthetic, looks great and generally runs smooth. As for cool new features, on the wall facing the bed, there is a TV you can browse the internet on! That way you can watch porn while being virtually deviant. It does require a bit of set up beforehand though. A super cool addition nonetheless! It should be noted that the on-screen browser doesn’t run all video types. Just keep that in mind when something doesn’t load.
There is also the new “Image Panel” tool. It allows you to load a gif or an image file be viewed on a panel in the VR porn game. If you wanna customize your character based on a doppelganger, I can see this tool being absolutely vital. If not, it’s still a handy little feature that has many uses in this context.
Beyond the changes above, a significant chunk of this update lies in the new customization features. That’s a good thing.
If you’ve seen my reviews for the past updates, you probably noted that I harped against VAM color customization restrictions quite harshly in the past. In former iterations, you were given a large array of clothing options that didn’t match therefore limiting your palette significantly.
That’s not the case anymore.
This update’s most prominent feature is the ability to customize clothing to a higher degree. It is now possible to tweak the color, textures, and CGI shader parameters of each article of clothing independently. Now, more than ever, mixing and matching clothing in VirtAMate is finally intuitive enough to be a delight. This small change made customizing my character a whole lot more fun than it was before. Cheers to more necessary changes like this one!
But wait. There’s more! Customization wise, anyways. High heels have finally been added to the adult VR game’s wardrobe. The new “Leslie” hairstyle is one of my favorite additions! And of course, the holiday wardrobe is the clothing highlight of this patch. Oh, and all the new morphs are very cool, if not a bit overwhelming. Neat!
Super solid additions all around in the customization category.
Lately, Virt-A-Mate has been showcasing why it’s the current go-to adult VR experience. While it does suffer from optimization issues and the occasional bug, the game’s updates have been consistently well done. The next update is supposedly a bug fixing one, so we might be in for a content drought for a while. Not to worry, though! The current update is bound to keep you satiated for a while.
A professional by day, a lewd superhero by night; Manyakis is a unique gem of an artist.
With a catalog prioritizing quality over quantity of various genres, you’d be hard-pressed to find another artist with such an impressive content reel. It’s all magical. Whether it’s his Adventure Time yaoi content or more recent Splatoon busty escapades, I assure you every post is worth checking out if only for the essence it exudes.
You might cut me off right about now and say something like: “Hey man, what does 2D animation have to do with virtual reality porn, anyway?”
Something revolutionary has occurred recently. While Manyakis’ work primarily relies on 2D animation techniques, he has recently made the transition to virtual reality with ‘Splatfest Eve,’ an uncommon merger between 2D animation and virtual reality. The result?
Something unlike we’ve ever seen before. A breathtaking lewd visual experience that is indeed one of a kind in VR porn. Literally, there’s nothing like it.
Let that sink in for a moment.
A short animation like this could take a while to cook up. Manyakis was kind enough to share his conversion process on his blog. To nail the technical aspect of the scene in virtual reality, using 3DSMax, he started by animating and rendering a 3D scene. He then used that reference to animate in 2D with Photoshop, convert the 2D animation back to 3D for VR in Max, create the stereoscopic background in Max, brought it all together and then added the extra eyecandy effects through After Effects.
This is obviously a super simplified version of a rather tedious process. It does, however, paint a picture of how meticulous and arduous the whole process is.
Anything worth making takes a long time and a lot of effort to come to fruition. With that in mind: I am not sure if Manyakis will make any more jewels like “Splatfest Eve,” without some notable demand. Whether that’s the case or not, I am glad we could at least have this video to show us the potential of well-done CGI in virtual reality!
In the world of whoredom and wild indulgence, there are only two things that matter: The master’s lusts and a beautiful submissive whore ready to embrace them all.
The master is the painter. His generous cum-gushing dick is the brush and his obedient fuckmeat of a babe is the canvas. Beautiful, isn’t it? When you look at it like that, it can’t be anything other than a masterpiece in the making.
Whether Erika, the VR porn game’s gorgeous lead, thinks her master’s massive throbbing cock is too big to be drilling her tight asshole is not a question; a good slut should always submissively spread her legs and lick, suck and fuck for even a glimpse of his sacred cum. And when it’s all over, she barks in exuberance as master sticks money in her fishnet stockings, awaiting his return the next day.
That’s basically what Fallen Doll, an adult VR game, is all about!
It all starts out with Erika sitting on her throne. She’s in a lovely Playboy bunny suit awaiting your command as you obsess over every part of her perfect body; her tight corset accentuates her ample breasts, and those black fishnet stockings are just begging to be ripped.
Trust me; witnessing it all in virtual reality as she shyly looks at you is just adorable.
Before long, your primal side will take over and you’ll be howling for more with your dick out, ready to make her body shine with your thick cum. As soon as you touch her with your motion controllers, body markers will pop up allowing you to choose which body part to fuck. Make the decision and Erika will obediently prop up to get into your position of choice; ready to get fucked like the slutty fuckmeat she is. Each position has a start, a progressing medium, and a cumshot ending; all of which are lewdly voice acted and do a good job defining Erika’s “sex-slave” persona. There are also many positions to fuck her in, ensuring that almost every fetish is covered! Just make sure to change to other modes besides hand mode to get access to the extra animations.
Besides that, as far as customization goes, you can always change Erika’s costume to one of the many gorgeous options available. Whether it’s the heart-shaped nipple covers, lingerie nightwear, or raunchy sailor suit: you’ll be glad to know that they all look absolutely stunning on Erika’s banging body.
Fallen Doll is a CGI visual spectacle. It’s powered by Unreal Engine 4 and uses it’s graphical potential beautifully. It has that Final Fantasy/Tetsuya Nomura art style (Serah Farron from Final Fantasy XII-2?) going for it and it pulls it off rather well. Put all that goodness in VR, load it up with good content, build a compelling character and you’re bound to strike gold.
Though I have to admit: I have been avoiding writing any opinion piece regarding Fallen Doll for quite a while now. I’ve always loved the game on a flat screen. It’s just the game’s previous VR builds were always laced with pesky issues that warranted the developers attention. So… did anything change?
Fallen Doll’s latest 1.18 and 1.18.5 updates are the catalysts that this game needed. It shows that the Project Helius developers care about the platform and are dedicated to make Fallen Doll a solid VR title. It is true that the virtual reality rendition of the game is currently lacking a lot of the game play aspects of the monitor version. But I am optimistic that won’t be the case for long.
Also, the controls aren’t the best right now. They were quite limiting and took me a few play sessions to get used to. There is no POV mode and the UI needs some work. And finally, the game lacks interactive features such as breast fondling with your motion controllers The closest thing is the 1.18.5 Alpha, where you can use your motion controllers as whips to discipline Erika into being a good dirty whore. Experiences like that should be the developers number one priority!
Hopefully, as demand for the virtual reality version ramps up, these kinks can get fixed in a future update.
Fallen Doll’s Erika is a well-rounded slutty persona that draws the player in with her charm and innocent demeanor. A slut like her deserves a hardcore fucking only possible in virtual reality. That on it’s own should be incentive to better the game. It’s also the only thing Fallen Doll has over similar and far superior games like Play Home & Honey Select.
Fallen Doll’s latest update is the first “virtual reality porn game” worthy rendition. It’s got a lot of content, supports both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive motion controllers, and most importantly is a fun debauchery filled sex escapade. It still has some major UI and controls issue, but the developer reassured me that kinks like that would be ironed out in upcoming updates. As soon as those updates come out, I’ll be sure to go over them as well. For now, it’s still a work in progress; albeit, one worth watching.
Thanks for reading! Check out Fallen Doll’s Patreon to support the developers.
Here comes a new challenger!
Girlfriend experiences are some of virtual reality’s most sought-after content. There is just something about being so intimate with a girl that drives people insanely hard and hungry for more. One thing I know for sure is: I cannot blame them!
The vast majority of us perverts would love to have sexual freedom beyond any limitations. Having a girlfriend that excitedly agrees to all of your kinks and fetishes, no questions asked? Yep. That is the holy grail of porn. It is also where SixyVR comes in.
You are left alone alongside a lovely girl. The girl, let’s call her Cece, is the sweetest little thing. She will do anything with you so long as it is lewd. Better yet, she is as submissive as they get. Is that what you wanted? I only ask because that is exactly what you get.
SixyVR is an exciting game. It is a Patreon based ongoing development that happens to defy the norm of this genre. Here is how: Genre symbols such as VR Kanojo, Sexaroid Girlfriend, and to some extent, Honey Select tend to be fully-fledged games when released. It’s also the standard for VR porn games on Patreon to be highly customizable sex-focused experiences. Making a catered game tends to be challenging and time-consuming. And yet SixyVR is here, attempting to make it as a girlfriend experience on Patreon as a virtual reality exclusive? That’s a tough sell, isn’t it?
Not in this case.
The developer’s goals are clear: Multiple girls each with a distinct personality. If the game’s past updates are any indicator of what’s to come, then he’s likely to focus on game systems first before adding new girls.
There’s an emphasis on building up the foundation of the game so that any further implementation could have its progress streamlined. Furthermore, the games core mechanics – as we’ll later discuss – are more user-friendly and more accessible than some of the other games I’ve listed. They’re also bound to be easier to develop and to troubleshoot. In that sense, this game has the most potential when it comes to a “plug – and – play” experience and should be noted for that.
A hand, a banana toy, and a penis. Those are your major means of interaction with Cece. Not much, eh. But I have to admit; I loved the simplicity. Other games tend to overcomplicate simple mechanics to compensate for the limitations of virtual reality. That doesn’t happen here at all. Equip any of the three on each hand, and you’re bound to have a good time.
Pop ’em on, bring her close, pick her pose, and fuck her according to your mood. The best thing about it? She reacts to each toy and interaction differently!
Want to stick your fingers up Cece’s ass while having her suck on a dildo? Go ahead. How about making out with her while stroking her pussy with a banana? Yes, that is possible too. Impressive! Furthermore, the game is improving at a mouth-watering rate, so I assume most people just can’t wait to fuck her in more creative ways.
Everything on the content side just makes sense. While there are a few customization options for Cece – such as changing her hair color, bust size, and clothes – none of the choices subtract anything from the characters core personality. I like that. It sets a distinct tone for her and hopefully other characters to come. Can’t wait to see where the developer will take the game from here.
SixyVR is an Unreal Engine-powered adult VR game that has the potential to deliver an outstanding girlfriend experience. The SixyVR demo is free so give it a shot and let me know what you think. It’s a work in progress so do expect it to be rough around the edges sometimes. But hey, I am a believer. I am aboard the hype train.
She Is Sexaroid VR is an ambitious VR porn game: in its wealth of content, in its varied features and, most importantly, in its charming premise.
There is a profound sense of warmth and intimacy that “She is Sexaroid” exudes towards the player. Your womanly companion, while supposedly an android in the game, embodies a rather vivid girlish demeanor reacting to your every move pragmatically. She is the star of the show: drawing you in, immersing you into a world where each detail is generously accounted for, and ultimately leaving you deeply attached to her sexual presence.
The game is perfectly set too.
It’s a sunny summer afternoon, with lush trees overseeing your small room, with your “sexaroid” sitting coyly next to you awaiting your instructions. She’ll hungrily lick the cum you spill on her right off, and with your command will curiously gaze wherever you please. Oh yes, she is unquestionably set on pleasing you! It’s a dichotomy where you’re her master and she loves being your obedient sex servant.
Sensual perfection, right? On the surface, sure, but, pssst, hey… You know there is always a catch, right?
Perky small breasts, petite body, and a face so gentle it’s begging to be fucked. Is that what you signed up for? How could you not!
Sexaroid is an android delivered to your door with only one goal: to satisfy her master’s needs. As this is the case, she goes the extra mile when it comes to sucking your dick, getting all her holes filled, and licking all the semen that you could put on her. She might not look it, with her pure innocent looks, but she’s definitely a cum-hungry slut.
If you point your finger, she’ll curiously look at what you’re looking at; if you cum on her, she’ll diligently do her best to lick it off, and the rest will be left on her for the rest of the day; also depending on how hard you fuck her, her moans will always let you know how she is feeling. You’re her master and she never lets you forget it as she’ll actively call you just that during sex.
It should be expected that most of these points are a matter of taste. What is well done, though, is the developers’ dedication to the character. Sexaroid gets fleshed out during the sex scenes through her moans, voice, and reactions. She might not be real in the game, but the way she reacts to everything definitely helps build up her character and personality realistically. Coming from other adult VR games where character development, frankly put, is underwhelming makes this experience a lot more special. That being said, other games have much better customization option as this game only offers you the ability to change the color of her clothes and glasses.
Commanding Sexaroid is simple. You pick one of 36 positions and one of its variation’s from the menu and you’re immediately dropped into the love-making! The game waits for you to replicate each position picked for maximum immersion. It’s straightforward and intuitive. Especially when you consider how I was able to make my way through the whole game when it was all Japanese. Just use the process of elimination!
The interaction system in place allows for a wide variety of sensual escapades. Sexaroid always welcomes you to fondle her nipples and breasts, speed up your penetration pace, and thanks to the bukkake system: cum on her as much as you want and whenever you please. Whatever you do, she always has a distinct reaction that favors experimentation and will often moan her way through the pleasure.
All these interactions work well on a fundamental level and the game’s core mechanics allow for some lewd, creative fun.
Additional game interactions, however, can be more problematic as they tend to be experimentally tailored for each sex position. Doggy style positions, for example, enable you to use your Touch / Vive controller as your hip, allowing you to attach your controller to a belt and physically thrust to please Sexaroid. Depending on how you use this newfound power, you might enjoy it or it might break you. It might favor the latter considering how current motion controllers are shaped.
Stripping clothes from Sexaroid is also another unique feature. The game, during certain scenes, allows you to help take Sexaroid’s clothes off for her. When it works, it’s astounding. I wouldn’t mind if this feature was a game on its own! I should note that there are just some glitches here and there depending on Sexaroid’s position when you take her clothes off. It’s just a minor inconvenience though.
Japanese developer Daminz has released a tailor-made adult VR game from the ground up. In this day and age, this feat is a rarity only otherwise shared by VR Kanojo. Is it as good as VR Kanojo? Well, no. Sexaroid does come surprisingly close though and I do admit in some aspects it can sometimes pull ahead! But it isn’t for everyone as I could see some people avoiding the game due to the fact that the game is completely in Japanese, lacks graphical CGI tweaking options, and has its fair share of bugs. Oh, and it’s also censored!
If you could look past these minor issues, then She Is Sexaroid makes a compelling argument for these type of “girlfriend experience” games and I hope more devs invest in similar experiences!
Yes, it’s here! Everyone’s most beloved virtual reality sex simulator has finally received its monthly update!
If you count down the days between each update then you should be pleased to know that this new iteration is quite good if not a bit meek on dazzling content. The significance of the latest update lies in its focus on the fundamentals of the simulator. At first glance, it might seem a bit underwhelming but do look further as appearances can be deceiving. Now don’t get me wrong. It might not be a feature-rich party like the previous update, however, that doesn’t mean it’s not a respectable gathering of some rather prominent content.
The latest additions to this VR porn game include a hundred and some customization morphs, new skin and hair options, and some rather important quality of life features amongst other things. Going through this update, I realized quite a bit of the content here is convenience-focused, as in most of the changes here help solidify the foundation of the game. Speaking of which…
Teleportation is out! At least, it is if you’re using the Oculus Touch. It has been stripped down for the Vive controllers. This is to make room for the new “Grab World” navigation feature. Simply put, you can now use your controller to “drag” the world around you for movement!
I am not really sure how impactful this feature will be. Teleportation may have been an inconvenience to some players but it was a workable system that you weren’t forced to use. That being said, the current “Grab World” implementation does work rather smoothly when you get used to it. That’s a win in my book.
New morphs have been added that significantly influence the customization capabilities of the simulator. I’ve gone through most of them and I have to admit that they do cover a wide array of assets. This is a largely positive addition to the game and I especially appreciate the new user interface that streamlines access to them. The new skin texture and hair options make for some great CGI in the game as well!
The only weak point here is the new clothes options. I thought if MeshedVR was gonna postpone sound for the next update, he would’ve prioritized customization for this one. Alas, besides the morphs, this is an underwhelming update customization wise. Mostly because the new clothes options are a little disappointing and occasionally suffer from clipping. Changing the color of the clothes has also yet to be implemented making the currently available wardrobe rather one-dimensional.
Big improvements have been made through this update as far as making the game feel more robust.
For those of us who tend to push the boundaries of the game, the new “reset” button is sure to come in handy one day! Oh, did your girl go haywire spazzing across the screen again? No worries, just “reset” the game. Thanks, MeshedVR!
Oh, but that’s not all. The infamous uncontrollable penis issue from the last update has also been resolved. On top of that, possession mode received some much-needed tweaks. The new possess head aligning features eliminates the awkwardness of replicating the male characters pose in order for the feature to work properly. All welcome changes here. Virtual reality porn at its finest, ladies and gentleman.
Virt-A-Mates’ latest update is a solid all-around inclusion to the game. The new navigation system is smooth, the new morphs are plentiful, and the game has quite frankly never felt better. All my issues with this update are minor ones as I do always expect the best from MeshedVR. If you can look past the few oddities and patch your game, then you’re in for a truly enjoyable experience.
Gather around, fellow virtual reality porn fanatics, as you surely do not want to miss this game.
If you’ve been around the adult gaming scene long enough, you’ve surely heard of Illusion – a Japanese studio that is known for releasing some of the lewdest games currently available – and their magnificently raunchy eroge Honey Select. Often lauded as the best adult VR game in the genre, dethroning Honey Select of this title has proved to be a rather lofty goal as we’ve yet to see a worthy competitor. It’s easy to see why too: The game offers a lot of content and tons of replayability!
With a massive modding community supporting it and the ability to share user creations, the game is considered to be nothing short of a magnum opus in adult gaming. On top of that, Illusion released the “Honey Select Party” and the “Studio Neo” expansions relatively recently. That means there is a wealth of fresh new content and tools worth discovering!
On top of that, Play Home, the spiritual successor to Honey Select, is coming soon. The demo just got released, and I think it’s safe to say that it’s structurally similar to Honey Select. All the characters you’ve created in Honey Select will work on there as well! Excited yet? Let’s dig in!
Honey Select, like most Illusion games before it, has a very in-depth customization system. With the Party expansion adding further to an already wealth of options, the game does not disappoint.
Like most simulator-esque games in the market today, Honey Select has a massive amount of morphs for every body type. You can make characters of every gender, ethnicity, body type, and personality that your heart desires. And that’s just what the base game offers. On the mods side, there is an enormous amount of lewdness and niche content out there waiting to be explored. I’ll delve into that more in the mods article though.
Customization in this game is not limited to clothes and morphs only; you can create a character from the ground up in this game.
The ability to change everything from the girl’s voice to her personality, mentality and sexual preferences inevitably take this game’s customization feature to the next level. In a way, this feature is the backbone that has made this game resonate with so many people. With Honey Select: Anything you want, you can get!
Through your playthrough, you’re going to realize that customization in this game is way beyond anything already out there. At first, it might be a bit much actually. I mean, you can change the girl’s voice pitch from low to high; you can change her personality from “Cheerful” to “Withdrawn”; you can change her behavior from “Brave” to “Perverted”; you can make her breasts sensitive or prefer kissing and so much more. It’s a lot to take in. But after a while, you’ll grow to like, if not love, the number of possibilities here.
It’s amazingly simple for something so complex. Clearly, the developers invested a lot into making the customization system what it is today, and I deem it effort worth commending.
The events system in Honey Select is super cool, and it’s heavily dependent on the sex system.
Sex positions here are profoundly varied, and each girl has her preferences for how the action should unfold. Each position changes the girls’ traits in some way. For example, “Yellow” positions increase the girls “Love” stat; “Red” positions increase the girls “Horny” stat and so on.
You can choose to enforce your will or play to the girls’ preferences. All the actions you make during sex affect your relationship with the girl and beyond, and that’s where the events system comes in.
Depending on how you treat the girl in the sex scenes, events might spawn with the girl allowing for something a bit different. Events might happen randomly sometimes and based on your judgment, your relationship might change as well, and you might get additional “items.” These events all tweak the “Feelings System” – a pretty detailed point-based system – which gauges the girl’s position towards the player.
It’s mind-boggling how much this system adds to the characters you make. Their behavior and expressions during sex make every character feel exceptionally realistic. You might feel downright guilty for doing something you shouldn’t, or if that’s your thing, you might enjoy it. Fetishes get their fair share of action on here, no doubt. Some events allow for especially niche sexual encounters depending on how you act in them, and that opens up the game that much more.
Okay. That’s a lot to take in. Oh, wait… I’ve yet to mention the sharing system and the incredible mod support Honey Select has? I’ve barely scratched the surface it seems. Onwards!
Given the games’ super strong customization features, there is also a community sharing feature that allows players to share their creations.
Through these “cards” – select images that hold character and scene data – you can share your unique creations anywhere you’d like or install them. All you have to do is drag the “card” of the creation you want into the correct folder and viola, the character or scene appears in the game. Though, I should note that if you’re missing the mods that the “card” you chose uses, then that specific item will not be a part of the character or scene you’ll see in the game. I’ll go into this further in “part II” of this review. Speaking of characters and scenes …
There is also HoneyStudio, which allows you to conjure CGI scenes of your liking using the game’s assets. For this review, I played around using both Studio and Studio NEO, and I have to say that they’re underwhelming without mods. Simply put, if you want to animate your scenes, you’ll have to use the HSStudioAddon or HSStudioNEOAddon mod. I go over these mods further in the next article. If you don’t get those mods, then I am afraid Honey Studio capabilities would prove rather limiting. It’s a lot better with the NEO rendition, which allows some degree of custom animation; it’s just rather constrained.
I should note that HoneyStudioNEO does lack Eusth VR mod support. You’ll end up using the built-in VR support released with Honey Select Party which is fairly underwhelming. It’s missing proper motion controller support and has a somewhat clunky interface, but if you appreciate using mouse and keyboard with your VR porn game then it should be right up your alley! I personally do not recommend it as it does break the immersion factor quite a bit.
Honey Select is hands down the best adult virtual reality game out right now. With Play Home releasing in November, that might change as it is rumored to have better native VR support than Honey Select and a lot of the same features. Alas, I can only speak for the present, and Honey Select blows every current title out of the water.
The customization features are phenomenal, truly a feat to behold; the depth of the sex/events system is engaging and allows your characters to develop naturally; the sharing features and HoneyStudio are surely enough to keep you revisiting this game for the foreseeable future. If that’s not sufficient, then the mods surely are.
It’s a shame, so many people don’t give Honey Select the chance it deserves due to the complexity of the installation process. If you’re still intimidated by the process and are looking for a more streamlined tutorial, then be sure to check out my guide. I wrote it in preparation for this article and the response to it has been extremely positive. If something goes wrong, feel free to ask me in the comments of the guide, and I’d be glad to help.
Over the past few months, we have seen a great deal of development activity in the adult virtual reality gaming scene. Many new projects have spawned recently giving us, the consumers, tons of adult experiences to choose from. This project, Virtually Naked, is one of those projects and I have to say: it’s looking pretty promising!
It’s rather meek on content but that is not the point of this sex simulator. According to the developer, the goal of the project is to achieve “photo-realistic rendering” in real time with Genesis 3 CGI models. And it’s not just that. Additionally, the developer is planning to open source his code and methodology to help other developers achieve that same goal with their sims! That’s an exciting development for the VR porn game scene. With that in mind, let us explore what the current standalone game has to offer and what we could expect from it in the future.
There are currently four female characters available and each one is a sight to behold. This is further pronounced with the diverse range of lighting environments available for use in the game. The skin shaders of the characters and the way they react to light are incredibly life-like and you can really lose yourself inside the sim. Unquestionably, the visuals are a step above anything else we’ve seen in the adult virtual reality gaming Patreon scene so far.
The fact that this rendering methodology will be open-sourced at some point in the future is also a very compelling thought. Hopefully, when that happens, other developers could use this technique to its fullest potential and raise the standard of what is possible in adult VR games.
Now don’t get me wrong. The characters are not perfect. This is still a very bare-bones simulator and there are a few major shortcomings here as it’s still a young project.
Once you really spend some time with the simulator, you’ll quickly realize that even though the expressions can be tweaked through plenty of morphs, the characters lack any expressiveness through their facial features. It definitely treads somewhere along the uncanny valley if you think about it for too long and adds a bit of oddness to the characters as they often gaze into the void like statues at whatever position you leave them at. A little more procedural animation would go a long way. Though, I noticed that this was actually a planned feature so it’s coming eventually. Just don’t expect it on this iteration of Virtually Naked.
It’s important to consider the context in which this project lies, as it’s not really a game as much as it’s an attempt at pushing the boundaries of what we could do with real-time rendering in an adult setting. I think it’s pretty evident by the project’s lack of sexual content that this is more of a showcase of things to be rather than an actual game.
All things considered, I commend the developers’ efforts of attempting to push the graphical fidelity of VR porn and raising the standard of what is to be expected from other game developers.
Everything in this game is controlled by a relatively simple list UI that controls render settings, posing, hair, shaping, expressions, characters, and animations. If you’ve been intimidated by something like Virt-A-Mate‘s UI then don’t worry, this one is rather straight forward though a lot less powerful.
This iteration of the simulator was a nice little preview of a project in the making. I’m definitely hoping that at some point in the future, this level of transparency in development is displayed in more games as to help the scene grow. Going open-source with this level of realistic rendering will surely improve the virtual reality porn scene as a whole as it is currently heavily dependant on Daz CGI products and I am sure a lot of devs would be able to benefit from it. One of those devs is actually Virt-A-Mate’s MeshedVR, according to his Patreon! And it really only gets better from here. The developer is planning on adding soft-body physics, procedural animation, in-game animation creation, and more so there is a lot to get hyped about.
Could I be supporting all of this for just a dollar a month? Yes. At least for now, you could!
Want to play Honey Select but not sure what to do? Well, you’ve come to the right place.
You see, I wanted to review this game as it has been a staple in adult virtual reality gaming for a while now. But then I quickly realized that if I dropped a review for a game that no one knows how to play, I’d be a pretty bad conveyor of knowledge and my efforts in bringing this game to the limelight would be in vain. Woah, that’s rock bottom. I don’t really like the vibe of that, to be honest. To avoid that, I decided to just make an updated simple guide as the one on the site is a bit outdated. Don’t worry. It’s probably easier to install than you think.
Just so that you’re informed – I’ll have us download everything we need to make the game work before putting it all together at the end of the article.
This is the trickiest part of this guide in a way. Unfortunately, Illusion’s – the developers – online store does not allow for western transactions for any game other than VR Kanojo. Since there is no western release for the game, getting a copy can be hard. You can buy the game on eBay or some other similar website. Just make sure whatever site you choose is legit if you’re giving them your money. If that doesn’t work, then check out the Honey Select community Paste Bin. I am confident there are methods on there showing you how to install the game. It’s also a very useful resource for Honey Select, as it is constantly updated and has most of the games mods compiled into one place.
Got the base game installed through one way or another? Good. This guide works for all of the Game + DLC variants of Honey Select.
Cool, you are now past the hardest section. It’s all smooth sailing from here on out.
While the newer versions of Honey Select come with virtual reality features, they’re often seen by the community as subpar at best. To fix that we are going to download Eusth’s virtual reality mod from here: Virtual Reality Mod. Along with the mod, it comes with a program that’s pretty important for modding the game called IPA. It’s basically used to update the game files to make sure whatever mod you added to the directory is loaded into the game. We’ll go over it in more detail later. Onto step three.
It would be really unfortunate going through this guide and skipping this part. You’ll need a mod to translate the game to English as it is a Japanese game. Here is where you can find this mod: Translation Mod. Stay put for now. For the sake of simplicity, we’ll put everything together at the end. Onto step four.
As is the case with any Japanese products, this game comes censored. But hey, don’t worry. It’s okay. There are mods to fix that issue as well: Male Uncensor Mod and Female Uncensor Mod. Sweet! With the completion of this step, you just downloaded all the files needed to get the game running in virtual reality. Onto the last step – putting it all together!
Make two new folders: One for the mods and one for the game. Now extract all the files you just downloaded – besides the game and the patch – into the mods folder. If you’re ever prompted by your computer if you want to replace anything during this step, make sure to press yes. After extracting the mods, make sure to run this patch as it will help make sure the game is up to date and when its asks for an installation path, point it towards the mod folder you just made. When the patching process is complete, you’ll find a new folder with Japanese characters in your folder. Make sure to drag all of its content(abdata,…,etc) into the mod folder with similar files (abdata,…, etc). You are now done with the mod folders. Jolly good!
Onto the game folder. Now extract the game files into the games folders you created earlier. Then copy everything from the mods folder(abdata,…,etc) into the games folder(also abdata,…,etc). If you’re ever prompted to replace anything, remember to press yes! The last step is to drag the “HoneySelect_64.exe” file onto “IPA.exe”. A console window should briefly pop up and close once the operation is complete. You can now just run “HoneySelect_64VR.exe” and enjoy!
Congratulations! You are done.
There is so much content out there for Honey Select that I couldn’t possibly go over everything. If after playing it for a bit you find yourself aching for more then make sure to drop by the new and constantly updated community PasteBin. It has most of the mods available for the game and all of the important ones. If you wanna mod the game further then I’d suggest you download everything under the “Required Plugins” besides IPA. Just copy the files from the zips into the Honey Select directory. They’re actually not “required” at all if you’re not modding the game further so if you’re satisfied with the game as is then don’t worry about it. If you wanna see all the community creations available for this game then check out Honey Selects’ Booru page. The card sharing system works by dragging the picture of any community created ‘card’ – which are just images – you like into your “UserData/chara” folder in the Honey Select directory. There are literally thousands upon thousands of CGI options when you use this VR porn game to its full potential.
DarkDreams is one of VRPorn’s most dedicated and iconic creators. If you’ve ever been to the CGI porn section on the website, you’ve likely seen his phenomenal boner-inducing work and could easily tell it apart from the rest. If not, then the best way to describe it is it often involves our favorite video game characters engaging in all types of sexual acts and debauchery for our viewing pleasure! Sounds amazing, right? And here is a list compiling what I think are the top five from his catalog. Even better! Now before you go ahead and thank me for this favor: You’re welcome!
Oh – my – god! Honoka is a star in this scene. Just her posture, the way she reacts, the way it’s built up in Honoka Doesn’t Want a Bedtime Story… it’s all perfection. There is so much going on during the sex that the scene completely occupies your mind – absolutely sucking you in. The moving shadows of the curtains, the creaking of the bed, and Honoka’s’ moans as you drill her are a wet dream in the making. If that isn’t enough, if you look around, in the shadows, there is a surprise waiting for you that I’d rather not spoil! Let’s just say you’re not alone with Honoka and leave it at that.
Elizabeth has been the video game porn darling for the past few years. She is such a well-developed and lovable character that it’s only normal for us to want to see her get fucked and twisted to display how much of a cock hungry sweetheart she actually is. Well, congratulations! Elizabeth Celebrates Independence delivers just that. Watch Elizabeth as she slobbers all over your cock in one of the wildest deep-throats around. Something about squeezing her breasts while she licks your dick’s tip before swallowing your cock makes for a very engaging initiation to a face fucking session. How about that for a VR porn prelude?
Nyotengu’s Bonding Moment is a charming scene. Nyontengu looks unusually innocent in this one and holding her hands adds an affectionate side to the love making that makes this scene that much better in my opinion. The subtleties of this scene really set it apart from the rest of DarkDreams catalog. I can’t precisely explain it – you’ll have to see it to understand it- but there is something really endearing about this scene. Maybe it’s how the wings react to the sex? Or is the fact that her whole body is in the frame and how she feels so close and present? Ah, whatever it is… If this is what bonding is about then I am all about bonding from here on out.
Liara Takes It on the Desk Military Style rolls out slow and steady – having an almost rhythmic vibe to it. It’s set up oh-so-well. Liara’s hip movements are mesmerizing and the sound work is perfectly hypnotic in the best way possible. On top of all that, the way she looks at you with that slutty outfit is definitely the icing on the cake. Put all that together and guess what? You get an excellent scene. What more can anyone of us want? Oh, that’s right… The only thing we could want is wanting more!
Variety is the spice of life. And as far as variety goes, this games offers a great amount of it barring none. After a few sessions of playing this game, you’ll be aching for more. Why? Well, if it’s not for the choice based sex sessions then I can assure you it will be the curiosity for what could possibly be next. That is, of course, if you don’t mind fucking a bunch of quirky girls. Their quirks being that they are all monster girls and that they’re all hungry for your dick! Feeling adventurous? Good. Welcome to Monster Girl Island!
Huh, so you’ve stuck around. Curiosity draws you nearer! Time to draw the curtains and unveil the plot. Don’t worry I won’t spoil much.
You play as a bag-headed protagonist that has somehow made it into a hidden island whose population is solely composed of monster girls. After waking up on the island, wondering how you ended up there, you meet the first two characters of the story. Faranne, the dark skinned busty elf who contemplated your demise as soon as she met you, and Ara, the cute young cat girl who stood up for you. Soon after, you find out that the residents of the Faranne’s village have disappeared and that the only way you’re allowed to stay on the island is if you serve the remaining residents. With work comes rewards, and on this island, the rewards are far more sensuous than you’d expect.
Instead of being terrified and building yourself a raft and sailing your way back to civilization, you quickly realize that doing chores amidst a harem of lewd monster girls is not so bad after all and so you decide to stick around. I’ll try not to spoil your relations with the characters too much, but it doesn’t take long for your efforts to bear fruit and you quickly get to sleep with all types of lovingly quirky and often sexy oddities. As every monster girl has a different personality and physical traits, the sex scenes are always different and impressive. Whether it is Eris, the cum hungry slime girl, or Shuri, the dominating fetish friendly elf girl, you can be fairly confident that every scene is a sight to behold.
The game also has a choice based system that actually affects the game and the sex scenes. The choices differ between each girl and their corresponding scene which adds quite a bit of replayability. There are always multiple options for playing a scene out. For example, you can be an obedient lover or you can turn the tables and dominate, all through this system. It’s refreshing to see such a different approach to sex games and I commend it.
If you’ve made it this far, then the way I painted the game for you must’ve captured your interest. Maybe you’re thinking of going ahead and becoming a patron of this project. I won’t stop you as this is a promising title, but there are some slight flaws that I’d like to warn you off before you go ahead and put your money into it.
First off, this game is unquestionably niche and that’s kind of the point. The fetishes featured here are for those who don’t mind or prefer outlandish characters, as the characters here are heavily influenced by the monster girls anime trope. From the get go, the plot and graphics definitely carry that ‘anime gone rogue’ vibe proudly which is super cool but is surely not for everyone. If you don’t mind that then you’re almost good to go.
Another huge issue is the game’s demo is very outdated and doesn’t do the game justice. It also doesn’t support virtual reality, forcing you to become a patron to try the experience in VR. A new demo is coming soon though, hopefully with some good virtual reality implementation to preview the feature.
The other issues here are technical. I love how the game allows for interaction in virtual reality. You can interact with the girls’ breasts, butt, and with some of the unique physical aspects that are a part of each girl. When the game works, it’s a nice touch and adds a ton to the experience. Sadly, it’s apparent that this game wasn’t made with virtual reality as a priority because the support for virtual reality here is occasionally buggy. Don’t get me wrong, it’s very playable, but there is definitely some experimenting needed on your part to figure out what’s right and what’s a bug. I thought it was only me but the comments on Patreon also support my claim. Things like not being able to select my choices in virtual reality, not being able to input my name at the beginning of the game even after a claim that the bug was fixed only to have it randomly let me in, and the very odd and annoying control scheme on the Oculus Touch stopped me from fully enjoying the experience. That being said, the controls on the Vive seem to be a lot better. Also, Redamz, the developer, offers the sex scenes independently as well so that you can avoid everything in the game besides the lewd CGI action. I found that this helped me avoid most of the problems that came with the virtual reality implementation. It’s good lewd monster girl fun.
This VR porn game is an anomaly. Considering how meticulously detailed every scene is, I am sure this game is a product of passion. As more people support the game for the virtual reality experience, in time, I hope the peculiarities of the implementation will be fixed. It’s perfectly normal for a Patreon project to be buggy. With voice acting here and expanding soon and a roster of characters worth checking out, I finally understand the appeal of the CGI game. If this adult VR game sounds like your cup of tea then, by all means, go ahead and support it. Just let Redamz know, you’re there for the virtual reality porn experience and encourage him to improve on it. I do think a good chunk of his audience use the feature and hope to see it improved. Mostly because there is no game like this out there and even though it’s not exactly my cup of tea, I do think it deserves more.
Oh, it’s been a month already?
MeshedVR, the developer of Virt-A-Mate, just dropped the first update for his recently released sex simulator. I donned my headset and dug deep into the update as soon as it came out, exploring everything new, and let me tell you what I found out down there in the dark, deep, depths of this update: This is pretty much a massive expansion to an already feature-rich adult VR game, almost to the point of being intimidating. So much so, that by the time I was done, I was a veteran in many things beyond the art of virtual love making.
It comes with a ton of new content, features, and bug fixes. It’s borderline madness for me to go over everything mentioned in the release notes – since there are just too many minor changes – so I’ll just do my best to run you through the major highlights. Let’s get it going then, shall we?
I’ll start this out by saying that for a first iteration, this is a pretty impressive male model. Though, it’s definitely not perfect.
Up until this update, the game was limited to female characters only. This is no longer the case as a male model has finally been added. There isn’t much to him really. Unlike the female models, who could look pretty realistic with good lighting thanks to their changing facial expressions, he looks pretty drab… His features don’t move – at all – so his features tend to resemble that of a statue. There is a good amount of morphs available to customize him, though in my attempts they didn’t do much to amend this issue.
Nonetheless, this is still a big addition. Not because the CGI model addition on its own is tremendous, but because through possession mode, this model makes the game a lot more immersive. Speaking of possession mode…
Now, this is a big deal. You can now control the heads and hands of any model in the game as if they were your own through the new possession feature. By lining up your head and arms with the models’, you snap into their body and are able to control them. With the help of the new “Grab Point” object, that could be attached to any models nodes, your new virtual hand could interact with any second model or spawned objects relatively easily. For a first iteration, I thought the possession feature was pretty smooth. A few issues here and there but most were fixed by just repossessing the model. My biggest problem was the fact that I couldn’t attach a “Grab Point” object to the penis of the male model, so I was not able to control it with the motion controller. It’s unfortunate since it makes insertion between two models a bit tricky.
Motion capture animations are here. You could now pair your motion controllers to a models nodes, act out an animation you want to record, and then replay that recording as an animation on the corresponding model. It’s an engaging feature that can add a ton of variance to a scene. I found myself using it for parts of the body I didn’t want to interact with, as animating a node made it un-interactable. Though, by giving the unused nodes motion, I found that the models looked and felt a lot more realistic. It also doesn’t hurt that it’s pretty fun to use.
After the initial learning curve, it’s pretty straightforward as you can edit your recordings, reset them, loop them, or layer more recordings on many different nodes. I can easily see some truly devoted individuals making fully-fledged scenes with this feature. A pretty solid addition in my opinion. I can’t wait to see how people will use it!
This update also came with a grand amount of morphs. Around twenty new morphs for the female models have been added changing everything from their facial looks to their physical traits. Two new hairstyles were also added. With all these changes, I was able to make some pretty compelling characters with the new morphs. The facial age and eyelash morph helps a lot with making anything from teen to MILF girls possible. The body morphs allow for more detailed variations of your preferred body type. There is a lot of morphs and they all really push the customization features of this sim beyond anything that is out there. As future updates roll in, I believe with more hair styles and unique morphs we’ll be able to make completely unique characters to fit each of our tastes.
Overall, I think this is a pretty impressive update. I must note that these are the additions to the “Creator” rendition of the VR porn game. It is the most complete rendition of the game so it should cover all the additions released with this update. Beyond the major features above, there is a lot of other minor improvements I didn’t touch on much, such as better CPU & GPU performance, fixed game breaking bugs, and a more refined and easier to distinguish HUD interface. The fact that Meshed was able to deliver all of this in a little more than a month is an achievement within itself. I am not sure we can expect updates as big as this one often, but if we do get them then they’re surely welcome. Even though this update does have its fair share of bugs, I think most people will forgive it for what it offers.
If you ever delved into the current catalog of adult virtual reality porn games, you’d quickly realize that games, unlike videos, give us the ability to be an integral part of the sex. With motion controllers and positional tracking, you are able to interact with the environment, move around, and most importantly, fuck around as you please. It’s a completely hands-on sexual fantasy, where you’re in control of everything in the world, easily having your desires manifested. A dream come true, indeed.
Sadly, content is often limited in adult VR games. It doesn’t have a stream of almost every fantasy every imagined compiled into porn like 180-degrees video. With what I believe is an upcoming standard feature though, this shall no longer be the case. But before that, let us discuss what is enabling it and why it is so important.
Most of the current adult projects are crowd-funded and supported by the community on Patreon. As Patreon is easily the biggest vendor for adult virtual reality experiences, by looking at the numbers of Patrons and comparing, we can see and understand which virtual reality porn game features are in demand and which aren’t. That way, we can focus on what makes the virtual love making so good and avoid the bad. Upon closer look; you’ll soon realize it all just makes sense.
There is an interesting pattern going on right now with VR porn games. Based on the numbers of Patrons, the adult VR games that tend to be the most loved and supported are the ones heavily based on customization.
Thinking about it, it’s very obvious why this is the case. These simulator-esque games – such as VirtAMate and Waifu Sex Simulator– offer the player a vast amount of options on how they want the action to unfold. It doesn’t cost too much monthly as well, considering the player can get a plethora of experiences playing it. Other types of games are limited to what their creator can put into them, while these games depend on the players’ creativity and hunger for good porn. It’s perfectly logical why these games are pulling ahead.
It’s no coincidence, just run through the list of the hard-hitters in the virtual reality porn game industry and you’ll quickly realize that any game that tries to break that mold of “customization first” experiences are either a terrible value for the content you get, suffer from slow progress, or both.
So, yeah the demand is obviously towards more open ended simulator-esque adult experiences. What’s so killer about this feature though? It’s been around forever. Well… It’s more about spreading the love, really. And it’s coming soon to the biggest adult simulator currently around.
The idea is since most of these game are more like simulators, developers would give players the tools to make and share scenes inside the client. This would basically make the content of the game depend on the community and the only thing the developer needs to work on is giving them tools to help them create these sexual fantasies. Then there would be a large library of player generated content that is available to the player base. This has worked successfully before in Yiffalicious, one of the bigger – yet very niche – adult games on Patreon. Frankly, its virtual reality capabilities also suffer because it’s obvious the game was made for two-dimensional porn and then the virtual reality option was added later. That is the case with Honey Select as well.
A somewhat similar feature is the cards system for Honey Select. Honey Selects strength lies in its character customization features and the wealth of player created mods available for it. Using the character creator, people can make anything from celebrities doppelgangers and porn stars to their own unique character and share it on the forums available online. Cards also allow you to share your own scenes. It’s the main reason this game is hailed as one of the best in the genre.
This game also suffers from the same flaws the Yiffalicious suffer from as it was also made for two-dimensional porn. The virtual reality capabilities are a modded feature and you can not interact with the models. It’s also tricky to install since the game is originally in Japanese and the only way to translate is also through a mod. When you’re past all these obstacles, you’ll definitely see why so many swear by it as the best virtual reality adult game. You can literally find character cards for thousands of different girls and thousands of different scenes on Honey Selects’ Booru page and fuck them any way you want. After the steep learning curve, the game never grows stale as there is always a community creation out there that will satisfy your urges.
Both of these games are examples where community driven content in virtual reality has helped the game strive beyond its normal means. They also both suffer due to the fact that they are made for two-dimensional porn and are missing important virtual reality features like interaction and binaural audio. If only we can bring the community-based features of these successful 2D games and bring them to modern virtual reality games… Maybe we could.
Enter MeshedVR. He is the creator of the highly regarded adult simulator Virt-A-Mate. The strength of his game lies in its ability to be completely customizable from top to bottom. Better yet, he has this feature planned. Yes, that is right, you’ll be able to share your creations through the game’s client. Why is this big news? Well… Let’s look at it this way. Have you ever wondered why most virtual reality porn games on Patreon look the same? That’s because you’ve probably noticed.
Most adult virtual reality developers on Patreon – around 90% of them – use the Genesis 2 or Genesis 3 Daz3D models with Unity or Unreal Engine. While Daz3D models can heavily be tweaked, we rarely see that from modern developers. So we can say they have, more or less, the same models as MeshedVR -minus the soft body physics system because that is custom written programmed by Meshed. Being a sim, Virt-A-Mate could be all the other games in one when this feature is released. All Meshed needs to do is supply the tools, clothes, and environments and watch his community get creative. Woah.
Primarily this fixes one of the bigger issues with virtual reality porn games – a lack of content. This feature is still on the way for Virt-A-Mate but for all the other games that used similar methods – primarily Yiffalicious and Honey Select – have proved how given the tools, an audience can help the game evolve. But those games are intended to be played in 2D and the virtual reality capabilities were just slapped on. The reason Virt-A-Mate has an advantage on both of those titles is that it was made with virtual reality in mind. It doesn’t lack interaction like those other games, it isn’t a quick mod or anything of that sort. It’s a fully fledged sim.
Oh, and by the way… it has already started. Going through Virt-A-Mates’ community page – with what little assets were supplied by MeshedVR for its first release – you can see how creative the community has gotten with a sim that has been released around a little over a month ago. It’s really promising since the upcoming 1.1 release will give us the ability to capture animations using motion controllers and I can’t wait to see what his Patrons will do with that powerful tool!
I do believe that for now – a time where content creators budgets are limited – that community shared scenes would allow adult virtual reality gaming to inch closer to catching up with 180-degrees porn videos and find a more mainstream audience. Optimally, it should allow both free and paid users to create scenes but offer the paying user an added advantage. Kind of like free to play online games. With community sharing features coming soon to Virt-A-Mate, I believe that if MeshedVR manages to implement it properly, there is a lot of hope that this grows to be the standard for the next few years. Mostly because, until virtual reality is truly mainstream, CGI experiences like VR Kanojo that also have a lot of content are just not financially viable.
Immersion and virtual reality go hand in hand. It’s the whole point of VR. Your brain has to be so occupied with the virtual world that it temporarily forgets about the real one.
To genuinely make virtual reality porn immersive, you have to engage the viewers’ mind for the duration of their sexual stimulation and keeping them engrossed for more. If their attention is ever detracted from the experience – say from technical issues – the immersion is shattered and has to be re-established
A lot of virtual reality porn falls under the same blunders of normal 2D porn, as in: I am fucking a girl I just met, for reasons I do not know in a place I do not care about. Usually, in an upscale house with a bed or a pool, an overly slutty girl whose only goal in life is fucking me like her life depends on it and a list of sexual positions to go through before the scene is over.
That’s hot, right? I agree… To some extent. This works really well in normal porn because, really, you just need some naughty action to look at before you pop your load and call it a day.
But virtual reality is a medium based on immersion. How are you supposed to feel immersed when the scene rushes the development of the characters, the scenario is underdeveloped and the context is nonsensical?
Well… you just don’t. Putting too much priority on the sex takes away from the scene sometimes. Let us study some methods that have proven to amend this conundrum.
This is not a common thing in two-dimensional porn. Ever heard of the pizza guy & the porn star cliche? The scenario is often only there to lead to the sex which results in a nonsensical context. Yet, a proper context is a very vital facet for VR porn. With a solid context, the foundation of the scene is strong. It lingers within the viewers’ mind throughout the whole scene and adds a bit of emotional attachment to the porn which is, generally, very important in sex.
To make a solid context, it doesn’t really need to be realistic. I would actually say, most of the time, it’s better if it is completely unrealistic.
How? Well, this is porn. It’s fiction. People want to experience things they can never experience in real life. Therefore, directors should take liberties with pushing the boundaries of reality using realities rules. That means developing the characters, even if it means extending the teasing part of the introduction before they strip, and their purpose in the scene to resonate with what the viewer might see in real life in a completely exaggerated manner.
For example, if the viewer is fucking a teacher in the video, you know what would really sell the part? Having a student that talked to you in the beginning of the scene spy on the sex or film it on her phone. How about if the viewer is fucking a secretary? The phone rings mid-sex and the girl answers it and writes down notes while trying to hold her moans. These are all outlandish situations that can happen, even if the chances are very unlikely, and therefore, fool the brain into accepting it as a reality.
To add to the factor of being included in a scene, the viewer should always be able to easily replicate the positions in which the sex occurs. Sitting, standing, and sleeping are the three most common positions but there are some very odd variations of these positions out there that are challenging to replicate.
I think some innovation would actually be very useful in this area. Often scenes transition from position to position using a fade or some similar visual effect. To find the position you would want, you have to scroll through the video to find it and then resume the video.
This is not an immersive way to navigate porn in virtual reality and I doubt everyone goes through twenty minutes or more of virtual reality porn every time. I think the optimal way is to implement a way to browse the positions through the video player itself. Obviously, that is a software job in the making so, for now, I think time-stamps denoting positions after the introduction scene should be more common in the studio porn scene. Maybe icons at the top right denoting the next position would be useful.
A relatively new approach in witnessing virtual reality sex has been showing potential as well. Voyeur porn videos, where you are a spectator watching porn stars have sex has been getting traction lately. I think the reason is it allows for the viewer to have freedom over how they watch the scene. By doing this, you avoid the oddities that come with a POV view, such as the POVs porn stars body not matching yours and similar problems.
It also allows the porn makers to have some degree of creativity with how to view the action. The amount of variety you can create when not limited to a POV view is quite interesting. You can now watch lesbians or gay porn stars have sex without engaging in it. This, I also think, is the easiest type of virtual reality porn to follow. It’s immersive in its own way, more as a watcher rather than a POV. It’s a lot easier to watch a whole video when you’re from a voyeur point of view rather than a POV one.I am hopeful that more studios will adopt these kinds of videos. Just because they’re easier to shoot and add a variety to the wealth of scenes available today.
This one is a bit tough in videos, but it is my personal favorite. Most porn videos are filmed in 180-degrees to ensure that the quality is at a maximum. Directors, therefore, have a limited palette to paint a lot within a relatively small area.
Many directors have managed to do this fairly well though. Having multiple points of interest, basically, means having more than one thing going on in the scene that requires the viewers’ attention. For example, having your dirty secretary suck your dick under the desk while your cutie girlfriend tries to seduce you by masturbating on the desk. This technique embodies everything immersion stands for. Most of the time, it requires more than one girl to be fucked in the scene.
It can work with a solo actor too though. For example, a girl giving you a handjob with her ass on the viewers face. It works so well because when the viewers’ interest in a certain aspect of the scene starts to dip, there is always something else to bring their attention back before it is too late. Keeping it varied and changing the points of interest through the scene keep the viewers attentive and engaged in the scenes. Having too many though is not a good idea as it causes the scene to be distracting. Two or three points of interest in a scene can make a huge difference to the quality of the scene. I’d personally like to see more of this technique used in virtual reality porn videos as it utilizes the hardware to its fullest potential.
Virtual reality is a medium that allows us to experience fantasies like we never could before. As is the case with most new technologies, there is still a lot to be discovered on how to fully utilize its potential. Making worlds for it is proving to be no easy task, and nor is making porn. It’s a shame that some modern scenes are still ruined due to a lack of understanding of the fundamentals of immersion. As a fan of the virtual reality porn scene, this article and the research I under went for it is the best I could do to try to amend this problem. Hopefully, it does not go un-noticed.
Let me know what you guys think. What do you guys think are the cardinal sins for breaking immersion in a scene? Leave it down below. This is the first article in a two-part series discussing immersion. Next time, we break down games and CGI and the added elements they add over 180-degrees videos.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if at one point we could physically interact with the porn stars we watch on our headsets? Sometimes it’s really tempting to try! Who can blame you; virtual reality is a very immersive medium.
It’s a shame because 180-degree videos, even with all the sexy content and experiences they give us, can only do so much. The quest to make realistic virtual reality porn continues. To truly make virtual reality porn experiences realistic, we have to be able to have some semblance of control over the fucking. With motion controllers and a growing virtual reality install base, we have an industry with the tools to start tackling this problem. After all, sex is more than a spectator sport.
There is a start-up that has been working on an interactive experience called CamasutraVR. Using a technique called photogrammetry, where 3D models can be made through images, they aim to use the porn stars 3D model in a gaming engine to make an experience like no other. Their quest is basically to perfect virtual reality porn.
Interacting with porn stars in VR has been a fantasy up until now and it is obviously no easy feat. Simply put, replicating reality in game engines is a resource heavy task requiring expensive computers. While most try to tackle this problem on game engines like Unity using generic, less resource intensive models, CamasutraVR goes into building this experience around porn stars head on.
But this process is expensive. Motion capture and photogrammetry have come a long way, but are still by no means accessible for mainstream use. It requires a lot of manual labor to clean up the CGI models, rig them up for animation, bring in people for the mo-cap sessions, and then implementing it all in the engine. Not just that, but they have to make sure the experience is also optimized for the average VR computer rig. Virtual reality is in its infancy, so there just isn’t enough people with VR rigs to justify such an expense. It seems like the odds are against them. But unlike Holodexxx, who fizzled out soon after starting up, Camasutra seems to be here to stay. According to their website and commentary made on social media, they are planning on releasing a beta in the upcoming months.
Camasutra promises 10 adult experiences, one for each porn star featured. As of right now, we know that Casey Calvert, Krissy Lynn, Jynx Maze, Honey Gold, and Anikka Albrite are involved in some capacity. An exciting lineup. Most of these girls have done VR porn videos before so it will be interesting to compare the results. Here is to hoping that if the product is a success, they can make experiences for a female audience as well involving male porn stars.
If they succeed in their goal, virtual reality porn will never be the same again. The interaction factor is a very important one. It’s the main reason the VR porn game Virt-A-Mate is so loved. It’s a rare and challenging, but very rewarding goal. The possibilities are truly endless when a porn stars 3D model is in a game engine. It can do anything – just for you – in VR. In porn, that is the holy grail. If the adult VR game has a similar interaction system to what Virt-A-Mate did, then that’s even better. And right now, most people who own a virtual reality headset are also consumers of VR porn. A product like this, properly done, can be a gateway to a new generation of virtual reality porn consumers. It also raises the standard of upcoming porn products and would likely allow for more funding for similar efforts. In some way, if CamasutraVR manages to deliver on their promises, the industry as a whole wins.
