For a lot of people, the Kickstarter campaign of Coming Out On Top was a game-changer. It was refreshing to see a game that focused on a gay character, something that is unfortunately rare in our industry. Rather than blasting anything that moves with high-powered weaponry, the game explored the concepts of romance and sex. Since its launch, Obscurasoft’s game has captivated many gamers, and rightfully so! But what happens when you’ve exhausted every option and even unlocked the outrageous joke ending? Did you know that there are other games out there, similar to Coming Out On Top, that are worth your time? Here’s a curated list of a few so you’ll have even more games to enjoy!
My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant
If what you loved most about Coming Out On Top was its impeccable sense of humor, then My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant might be right up your alley. This game isn’t focused on dating but instead offers a comedic sci-fi adventure. You step into the shoes of Captain Tycho Minogue, who is minding his own space business when he receives an alert that his ex-boyfriend is wreaking havoc in the galaxy! The game is played in a point-and-click adventure style, where you solve item-based puzzles and engage in conversations with a wacky cast of characters. While the campy adventure is free from adult content, it still offers its fair share of attractive characters.
See No Evil
Here’s a game that deserves much more attention than it currently receives! See No Evil is a point-and-click adventure game where you play as a man named Orsino. After a drunken night, Orsino stumbles home, only to discover that everything has gone horribly wrong. To make matters worse, there seem to be demonic beings in the neighborhood! As players explore this strange new landscape, they interact with these creatures and help solve their issues. The culmination of these puzzles leads to a few intense and intimate sequences, earning this game an 18+ rating. Let’s hope the success of Coming Out On Top brings well-deserved recognition to this hidden gem!
No, Thank You!!! (Link is 18+)
In No, Thank You!!!, the story kicks off when Haru saves the life of a stranger from being struck by a car. Unfortunately, instead of the stranger, Haru becomes the one injured. Upon regaining consciousness, he discovers that this mysterious man has decided to help him since Haru now suffers from amnesia. Working at this man’s bar, Haru encounters a group of incredibly attractive men. Although they may be his coworkers, this visual novel allows for complete, explicit sexual relationships with each of them. While there’s no specific release date yet, MangaGamer is expected to make it available sometime in 2015.
Super Health Club
If you wished you could spend more time at the gym in Coming Out On Top, then Super Health Club is the game for you! You become the new branch manager of a financially troubled gym and work to increase its profits. Along the way, you also aim to please the staff in more ways than one. And yes, you’re likely imagining it correctly. All four dateable characters are impressively muscled (and strangely adorable), making this management/dating sim one to watch. While there is no release date announced, purchasing now grants you access to the recently launched beta.
