BREAKING NEWS: Harem Heroes sucked cock till the end

This morning I rubbed my eyes in disbelief. As I opened Gmail, the chilling words of the new email from Nutaku, sent a proverbial icicle sliding down my spine. The shittiest game on Nutaku, is being shut down.

Studio Kinkoid’s Harem Heroes, is being shut down. Where is the outrage from the fans? Won’t anybody think of the children?

What used to be one of Nutaku’s best-selling games, has suffered stagnant sales in the face of competition. I have prodded my contacts at Nutaku for details, and they’re saying the game simply doesn’t make money anymore. They could always be lying about the reasons. As I see it, the corporation is securing themselves legally. Harem Heroes has, after all, taken the parodying to extreme levels, literally ripping off character designs from popular game franchises, and anime. That model only works if you’re monetizing with donations, print sales, and advertising revenue; that’s the business model of every popular western hentai artist. If you’re doing porn parody of existing intellectual property, you cannot receive direct credit card payments without lawsuits. Harem Heroes somehow magically dodged this bullet back in 2016.

Ever since Kamihime Project was launched on Nutaku, it has been hoarding all the players. Every hentai website out there promotes it. Now, the similar games keep dying off every few months: Idol Wars Online, X-Overd, and many more titles whose names I forget, all rest in pieces. Kamihime has everything that Harem Heroes has, and it does everything better. The game has a way higher budget, it has professional Japanese voice acting, animated sex scenes, great turn-based tactical combat.

Studio Kinkoid has been making fucktons of money with their product. They have been adding content, without improving basic gameplay. I haven’t played Harem Heroes in ages, because the game frankly hasn’t been able to fucking boot. Last time I did play, the combat system was still an RNG simulator. You clicked “battle”, and that was it, numbers happened. Kinkoid should have been smarter, to start adjusting their product to improve their standing in the hentai game market, instead of relying on the low-as-fuck standards of the customers. That shit is not gonna last, the standards of customers are bound to grow, as better games enter the market. The better services cannibalize your customer base.

I don’t know if they hired any new people, to improve any aspects of the game. They sure as hell made enough cash from it. Whatever the fuck they were doing with their hundreds of thousands in revenue, competing in open battle field with superior products, is not viable. Your game sucked.

You sat on your money, splurging it on booze, hookers, you swam in your own jizz, and got destroyed. The Japanese companies with superior resources are entering the west, guns blazing. This should be a warning to every western studio sucking ass in the industry: Winter is coming.

What I personally realized mid 2017: Just because the standards of the customers are low, is no excuse not to do things better. Shooting as low as you can, doing the least effort for maximum profit, is only going to get you so far. Eventually, you have to improve.

Hentai is a competition, a game of survival of the fittest. You live, or die.
