Pretty cool.

Its not dissimilar to the proliferation of the modern  dating game - got one on my 360 called don't die dateless dummy but its rather crude.

This is more like an early Leisure Suit Larry.

"Not suggested for minors," eh?  It's always interesting to see this stuff.  Adult entertainment was alive and well even when things were a bit crude given the hardware limitations of the time. 

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

When I was eight years old, my half-brother brought down a copy of Leisure Suit Larry from Canada and loaded it onto the family PC. In hindsight, it wasn't the brightest idea, but my parents were none the wiser. The game ran a simple age check at the boot-up screen, which basically consisted of a sequence of questions the developer didn't think a child should be able to answer. "Who was the third President of the United States?" Pick "Thomas Jefferson," and you're well on your way to controlling Larry in his eternal quest to score. What's funny is that I would imagine most adult websites don't offer anything more elaborate to keep minors off the site--maybe just a drop-down box to confirm your age, and we all know how fail-safe that is.  :<img src=" title="Roll Eyes" /> Interesting topic, nonetheless! Thanks for sharing.

First thing in my recollection along these lines was strip poker for DOS PC's.

General adult thread alert?

On my SNES emulator ive got various slide shows of sexy anime chicks (not hentai just sexy) or a few 'erotic' shots of some more risque actresses.

Anyone know what they are doing on a SNES emulator, would be surprised I'd they ever saw a cartridge release?

I never experienced this game but I did get Leisure Suit Larry and like above it was certainly crude but I guess I played it because I knew I should not be rather than it being a good game.

There where other games with more explicit functionality that ended up in my ownership. Sam Fox Strip Poker lol.

I've played SoftPorn on the Inform emulator.  It is crude, but not in the explicit way, more like someone's first game programming project.

It was fun, though, in the 12-year-old guy sort of way, which is all it was intended to be.  It is definitely the inspiration of Leisure Suit Larry.  Larry retains much of the original ideas and story elements of SoftPorn, and even some of the puzzles; but polishes them to a shine.

I've enjoyed SoftPorn for its sub-cultural and historical significance, but I love Leisure Suit Larry.  :)

And to think Kim Jong Un probably plays this game daily on their state-of-the-art, Reagan Administration PC's.
