Space waifu game Subverse tops $1 million on Kickstarter

It turns out people really want to get their hands on the space waifu adventure Subverse, because that $1 million on Kickstarter is nothing to sneeze at.


When it comes to adult-oriented video games, there simply aren't that many out there. And when people try to make them, their attempts are usually labeled as childish or unnecessary. We don't get them from the big publishers, so people have to make them on their own.

That's what's going on with Subverse, a tactical RPG/shoot-'em-up hybrid that's been seeking funds on Kickstarter. After asking for only $129,917, with 8 days to go until the campaign is complete, it's attracted over $1 million, and it's on its way at the time of writing to $1.3 million. That's a lot of money.

The game lets you explore the Prodigium Galaxy, which is ruled by a bunch of "puritanical, oppressive douchebags" who hate sexy things. Using a black ops squad of "knockout waifus," you've got to take them out of control. As you assemble your deadly alien waifu team, you'll get to know them and they'll start "doing things" for you. I think you know what kind of things I'm talking about here. Yes, you can have sex with the members of your team, as the Kickstarter page says. And honestly, given how bad Mass Effect Andromeda was, I'm here for any kind of romance in-game that lets us explore these things.

You'll hop aboard a ship called the Mary Celeste as you push through the universe and destroy your enemies, all the while completing sidequests, looting other ships, and purchasing upgrades to keep everything fighting fit. You may even find a few nudie magazines, who knows? The game is split up into plot-driven shmup missions or tactical grid RPG turn-based combat depending on which approach you'd like to take as yo defeat space pirates, bounty hunters, and other various enemies that want to see anything in the name of sexiness fall.

It honestly looks like a lot of fun, and if you're still not convinced, the trailer above may very well convince you. 

Check out all the awesome waifus and decide whether you want to contribute to the project via the official Kickstarter for Subverse.

      I'm curious how many donors it took to reach a million bucks, but I don't really want it in my browser history.

        Most expensive tier has apparently a £750 pricetag which has wtf? 20 folks but the majority finance came from the 10-20 bucks tier of 28k peopple.
        After that its drops to 2k at 50 and just 250 people paying 75 pound.

      Hahaha, the steam page warning for this game is hilarious:

      The developers describe the content like this:
      “A female cyborg performs fellatio on a bald man who wears panties on his head A stunning femme fatale engages in passionate consensual sex with a human male whilst her giant knockers bounce sensually up and down in front of the camera A psychotic pirate queen dominates a poor smuggler by grinding her buttocks on his crotch whilst gripping his member with her cute heart-shaped tail Whilst walking past the Laboratory, the player can hear sexually suggestive moans coming from within as a bipedal alien stud called Bulgetto pleasures your Chief Science Officer. There is nothing you can do about this, so don't even try. An enigmatic alien known only as Chodestool will engage in doggystyle copulation with various crew members if you forget to feed him A stoned engineer called Dallick proudly lets his tiny penis hang loose as he parades around your ship in a lurid display of free-spirited expression An enemy faction called the FuccBotts employs spaceships that are shaped like fluorescent dildos in order to ram and destroy their opponents. These FuccBots are considered extremely dangerous. The FuccBotts can also deploy ground troops who are robotic soldiers equipped with large sex toys in place of their arms. They will use these sex toys to hit you over the head. Approach with caution. A crazed German man moans suggestive words as part of a track on the game's soundtrack. We could not stop him in time. If you are sensitive to any of the above topics we strongly advise caution before playing this game.”

      How long before Epic throws mountains of cash at them to make it an Epic Store exclusive?

      not to quibble and not like there's anything wrong with this, but these seem more like space sluts than space waifus

        Sounds like the kinda porn that Incels would watch.

        What with their hatred of women, and all.

      Looks embarrasing. Targeting 15 year old boys, I guess?
