Nutaku fronts $5m investment pot for LGBTQ+ games

Nutaku fronts $5m investment pot for LGBTQ+ games

Adult games site Nutaku has revealed it will be giving $5m to LGBTQ+ titles.

The initiative was announced on its website as part of Nutaku's Pride month and will be going on for the next three years. It sounds like the adult games firm is trying to expand its LGBTQ+ section, which at announcement has just over 40 projects.

Nutaku is also positioning itself in the store wars, saying that less than one per cent of games are likely to be successful and thus its more, er, NSFW storefront might give developers "an alternative shot at success."

“The new investment portfolio is born out of the flourishing number of adult gamers who identify with the LGBTQ+ community, empowering diversity within the adult gaming world., " communications manager Julie Hall said.

"Resonating enthusiasm amongst gamers and game developers alike, Nutaku stimulates the creation of a space to build and support a diverse selection of high-quality adult titles."
