    In a around 4-5 months the project I'm currently working on may be coming to an end for reasons I won't go into here.

    But once it does end I'll be looking to work on another project, something way different to what I've worked on in the past and I want to make sure I get everything right.

    That's why, before I end my current project and start on the next, I want to make sure I get everything perfect before I even think of starting it.

    I decided the place to start would be a little research on what people actually want within a game, what turns them on or pushes them away.

    If you have any ideas for fetishes that you'd like to see in a game but most steer clear of, let me know below, please note, no animal or child suggestions.

    You realize that we cannot suggest "something say different" if we don't know what you are working on now.

    It's internet, while we can, we don't do our homework before posting, even if it's only 2 clicks.

    that, and a plot the builds tension (sexual or not) without blue balling for months. Actual progression would be nice, not necessarily in an RPG way but so that it actually feels like the game isn't homogeneous that both the plot and characters are not in the same state they were when the game starts as they are when it finishes, you know an actual story.

    Hey Ping! Two things I say we don't have enough of, Female Protagonists who aren't Retards in Lechertown and Futa. With the latter it doesn't even have to be a theme, just a character. I'm working on a Female Protag myself right now, but since I'm writing it it won't be something I get to really enjoy. So it would be nice to see more of us tackle the task of a good female protag.

    good character build.
    realistic/normal bodies .... sorry but if i see another game where its a combination of Lola Ferarri & Kardashian/minaj im gonna hurl ...
    avoid grind and NTR/Cuck .grind could be ok as in learning a skill upto a point of a few repeats,but nothing like BB .
    On a lot of games where there is even the slightest hint of NTR the forum becomes an fistfight of pro's and con's and guilty pleasures and talk about double standards.

    as always on the mark :)

    a good build up , add some romance.
    or give people the chance to skip time/grind after a certain point is reached.
    just my two cents.

    Gotta second this. A female protag that isn't a complete moron would be fantastic. Women like sex just as much as blokes do, you don't need to make her do dumb shit to get it.

    Doesn't even need to be the protag, just women in general tend to be portrayed as complete drooling cum dumps in some games and that's about as attractive as watching Piers Morgan butt fuck Rosie O'Donnell.

    I don't know your previous games, but for game to be successful, I would it's much more important to have a good well thought project rather than concentrate on giving people the fetishes they want. Otherwise you will end with yet another incest game with a creep protagonist as the single male in the universe.

    Incest game with love/romance and a lot of kissing to get started with, the sex can come later.
    Above all a great story to go with great looking characters including the MC.

    With pregnancy and carrying to term the love child.

    I think that's probably not possible.

    Actually the games that I enjoy most are not the games which try to cram as many fetishes (or girls) in a game as possible... Tangled Up is a good example.

    What I like in general:
    1) good story
    2) character depth
    3) choice

    What I don't like in general:
    1) no choice
    2) unclear choices (e.g. similar-looking dialogue options which turn out to have major impact later)
    3) asshole MC's who have to rape / coerce / blackmail in order to get anywhere

    Fetishes that most steer clear of:
    - lesbian (not bisexual)
    - male bisexuality
    - femdom

    A good lesbian mother/daughter romance would be cool, especially with daughter as MC.

    I am going to double on non retarded female MC. There are ways to stretch some things so it's still in believable territory if it's needed without making character a pervert from the start. Curiosity is one of those things.

    On the fetishes stuff... Weird question. Are you going to choose whatever is more popular? I wonder why such mindset. What if 99% of people want something you find disgusting? Will you work on something you don't like?
    Here is an idea: list your own kinks and focus on things you like and enjoy.
    Unless you are a big ass studio that can go with it, which isn't the case.
    In my view, if you need to do forced kinks to please as many people as you can, I am more than skeptic.
    Try asking different things: What people don't want to see, be it kinks or other stuff.
    Though, looking at the posts, you are pretty much getting that.

    "no animal or child suggestions."
    Just make live action porn or a non-porn game you're selling on steam if you're not going to make full use of the medium of fictional games.

    My main expectation is a game you wish to create. I hate when devs are trying to gather attention with fetishes they don't like. As for other things:
    - no incest - it's hard to find something more unrealistic and silly. I know I can't expect realistic behaviours or plot in an incest game and it really kills my immersion. Not to say it's the most overused fetish we have.
    - character development - slow realistic burn is the most enjoyable one.
    - meaningful choices - well done branching is essential
    - lot of characters but not too much to draw their emotions better. Female and male ofc as games without other males (and competitors) are usually just boring for me.

    What I like:
    Lesbians (real lesbian games, not one lesbian scene in an otherwise straight game, no MFF threesomes, no performances for a male character, the focus of the game must be on the lesbian relations)
    Lingerie, high heels (ideally with the possibility for the player to dress the characters
    character customisation (of course very few porn games that have it, and it's difficult to develop, but we are allowed to have dreams)
    A powerful main character
    cyberpunk, science-fiction or fantasy setting

    What I don't like:
    Male characters (A few male MC games are ok, but for me they still pale in comparison to lesbian games. As soon as there is a second male character involved in the sex scenes, it's a no-go for me.)
    bimbos/stupid characters
    shota/loli, too young characters
    grind (with that I mean grind. I'm perfectly fine with a long story and rather slow pacing, but I don't want to play the same minigame 30 times to open some character's bra.

    That being said, I seriously doubtly that such a thing as "game development on demand" as suggested by the initial question is possible. Even if the majority of the users name a certain fetish, it will be hard for the developer to put it into a game if he doesn't like it himself.

    Just a dumb thought but shouldnt you make a game with fetishes you actually like yourself? that way you will probably be more motivated and put more thought into the game. No matter what your fetishes are you will probably find people who share them and they will appreciate the extra care you will put into the game.

    I think, a thread were everybody says what he likes and what doesn't like, is just fine. But I also think this is smalltalk rather than any suitable help in developing a game.

    So, I kinda find this to simply be an ignorant statement. Ping Panda already had been developing a game based. The problem, that I'm sure you'd know if you had played his game, is that the fetish he chose was incest. Now all know that patreon is purging incest. So maybe he's crowd sourcing a fetish to see if there's something he can do instead of incest.

    so basically you are are saing he should have just said ''hey guys, what is the fetish that patreon supports that you are willing to pledge ?''.
    I am going to stick with my previous comment if he creates a game with his own desires and puts the effort in it people will find away to support him.

    Yeah, ok, well coming from a Dev, it's not always that easy. Don't get me wrong, there are ways to do it, but unless you have a good following like Dots or Dark silver you're not likely to be able to convert enough without an appropriate and trusted platform. The problem, I hope you know, isn't patreon, it's payment processors, like PayPal, who don't like to be associated with adult content at all, but especially taboo content.
