Kimochi Crimson Gentle goals to be the kickstarter for grownup video games
Kimochi Red Light (NSFW), a new crowdfunding site specifically geared towards games for a “mature” audience, launched today and has raised nearly $ 20,000.
Kimochi originated from Nutaku (also NSFW), a game portal for more than 18 games and visual novels. Nutaku proudly proclaims Kimochi as the first of its kind.
If you think you know what’s on kimochi, you are right. It’s an offshoot of a pornographic site like the one most of us have seen before. That being said, some of the games on display look quite fun and engaging as well as the obvious.
There are currently eight projects on the site, each of which is unique and eye-catching. They include:
• Phatasma Magic: Deluxe, a match-3 game with a lot of eye candy
• Episicava, a visual novel very similar to the popular Fate / Stay Night
• Dimlight City: Brothel Builder, a hilarious looking time management game that doesn’t seem to take itself too seriously
Three of these campaigns have already exceeded their funding targets. So far, Kimochi has raised over $ 18,000, and no single game has raised less than $ 800.
Some of the campaigns are aimed at expanding games that are already in development. The creators of Battle Girls are planning to expand their soon-to-be-released game with the funds raised.
All the games shown so far – like most of the content on Nutaku – feature feminine eye candy, which shouldn’t come as a surprise. According to Alexa, the website’s users are predominantly male. In at least one game – Echo Tokyo: Phoenix – men are featured on the list of supporting characters.
Some of the goals on the site are a little ambitious to say the least. Dimlight City has a $ 20,000 pledge, and that would all go in the direction of additional content. They apparently need the money to pay their contract workers to create more content, which is understandable. In a move that shows a solid understanding of their audience, they offer to send their most generous supporters to an actual brothel.
The creators of Kimochi Red Light say they are not taking a percentage of the funds raised for the games on their platform. All proceeds go directly to the game makers. While that’s commendable, there is always a chance game makers will become AWOL, as some Kickstarter projects have done.
The website made a significant portion of its changes during a soft opening for beta testers in January. Only time will tell if this site can launch as many games as the tamer’s crowdfunding sites.
