Best adult games on itch io deviant anomalies

At its heart, Deviant Anomalies is a harem building game where you must collect as many beautiful and strange women to help you complete your quest. Yet, there is so much more on offer with this complex and intriguing little detective game by Moolah Milk.

The game is set in a city which is engulfed by a mysterious snowstorm which seems to be transforming many residents into supernatural beings. You play the role of a rookie detective with a degree in Criminal Psychology.

Your job is to get to solve crimes and get to the bottom of the mysteries of what is happening before the arrival of The Watchmaker.

  • Build up, and train, your harem of girls to increase their depravity and advance the game.
  • Part police procedural, you must also find clues and interrogate suspects to help you unravel each case.
  • Complete side quests and missions to progress through the story and acquire new skills and items.

The narrative is compelling and the story is fully immersive with artwork which more than competes with some of the top adult games on the market.

Of course, what makes it an adult title is the extensive amount of nudity, sex and lewd behavior….of which there is plenty!

The game is plenty worth supporting and if you head over to Patreon you can pick up a regular subscription which will give you early and exclusive access to new releases, content updates and Discord benefits.

Sisterly Lust

Best adult games on itch io sisterly love

Largely based around the genre of taboo incest, Sisterly Love is a strategy choice-based visual novel adventure all about corrupting your sisters whilst maintaining their trust!

You play the role of a son who was raised by the family’s estranged father. After his death, you are approached by a woman who turns out to be your mother and who invites you to rejoin the family.

When you arrive in your new home, you find that (as well as a newly found mother) you have three sisters!

The narrative unfolds with plenty of choices for you  to make along the way but in order to remain a trusted member of the family you need to balance your desires with those of the characters you encounter.

Sisterly Lust is a name your own price title on itch.io but you can opt for the $15 bonus edition which features 23 more sex scenes plus additional characters to interact with.

As well as more than just overtones of incest and family love, there are other fetishes here which are pretty good fun to play with including:

  • Group Sex
  • BDSM
  • Pregnancy
  • Voyeurism

All character’s names can be edited and personalized.

This game is very popular on itch.io and we can see why. The 3D artwork is stunning and the story is pretty immersive with plenty of XXX action. So, if you enjoy the taboos of this kind of genre then it certainly won’t let you down on that front.

Third Crisis

Best adult games on itch io third crisis

A game still in development but which has quite a following already on itch.io, Third Crisis is strategy adventure game.

You play the role of Vibe, an adventurer whose mission has left her stranded in the town of Carceburg. A place where lust is the main currency, you have to carefully navigate your way around the town’s strange inhabitants.

As you do, there are plenty of mysteries and secrets to uncover and your goal is to rescue humanity by destroying the sinister organization, Pietho.

Though quite basic in its design with pixel-art navigation, there is quite a complex little story to enjoy here and plenty of 3D artwork to reward your efforts.

With some fetish themes and quite dark in places, Third Crisis is an enjoyable romp of an adventure that might bend your brain at times.

There are two spin-off mini-games (Deep Throat and Roast and Spit) which you can play that are based on Third Crisis and these can also be played in browser on itch.io

Lustful Desires

PriceFree
Best adult games on itch io lustful fantasies

A retro title next with this game created by Hyao and inspired by classics like Trials in Tainted Space and Flexible Survival.

With a typical fantasy adventure setting, the landscape here is a mix of wilderness, swamps and forests inhabited by dangerous creatures and beasts or small townships.

You play the role of an adventurer who has to complete quests by battling foes, crafting potions and resources and locating treasures and people.

Of course, many of the animals and people you meet along the way won’t just want to fight you or give you tasks, you also get to have ‘naughty times’ with some. And, as a fantasy title, you can expect a lot of interspecies and cross-gender XXX action.

As a text-based game, the appeal here is all in the written content with artwork added as a bonus rather than as the primary motivation. That being said, the multi-layered narrative is richly imagined and very addictive to play.

We thought the game has a lot of mileage in it and the developer is constantly adding new content all the time to boost the playability. Available for free, regular supporters on Patreon can get early access to new updates.

The Villain Simulator

If you’ve wondered why the bad guys have more fun then wonder no more as this lewd little VR title will show you exactly why villains are way sexier than superheroes.

Welcome to your high-tech lair where you can subject your captive femme fatale to any number of evil actions including whipping, spanking, squeezing and shocking.

The game is equipped with many devious little tools and you can use anything from vibrating wands and dildos or just your own hands to deliver the pleasure and the pain.

The real draw here is what your own imagination can run to with a captive woman of your own to play with.

A big hit with BDSM and fetish fans on itch.io The Villain Simulator is also available as a bundle with 7 other AR and VR NSFW games.

Juicy Futa

Price$1.00
Best adult games on itch io juicy futa

This stylish and jazzy little black and white futa game might seem basic enough but actually offers a pretty good bit of entertainment which is well worth the $1 price tag.

You play the role of the hero, Eliot, a futanari time traveler who winds up on this a little pixel art island.

In order to find your way home you will need to please the residents you meet along the way and manage their stats (Love, Mood, Trust, Lust) to develop relationships.

You get your own house to customize and a village map will show you which parts of the island you can explore.

There are a dozen or so characters to interact with, some of whom you can seduce, and successfully completing chapters will unlock some nice sex animations and XXX scenes.

The game is being developed with the help of crowdfunding support on Patreon and there are plans to add in a money/job system and more complex relationship stories.

However, Juicy Futa is pretty playable on its own and we liked the stylized and funky black and white pixel art.

Poke Abby

https://oxopotion.itch.io/poke-abby

GenreSex sim
PlatformsWindows, Mac and Linux and VR for Windows
Price$1.99
Best adult games on itch io poke abby

Sex sims are pretty popular casual games as you can play around with them without having to get involved in any questing or complex strategies.

This little sex sim is cut from the same cloth as ones you might have played before but instead of being 3D, the graphics here are more cartoonish.

Set in a magical school, Abby is a student whose appearance you can customize. You catch her sneaking into the potions classroom and once you follow her in, you can pretty much play with her as much as you like.

Actions include poking, stroking and rubbing but you can also undress her and use toys on her.

As with any sex sim, you get to control the viewpoint and this includes zooming and panning in and out.

It’s a lot of fun to dick around with for a bit and will easily kill some time but don’t expect anything more complex.

Zombie’s Retreat

Best adult games on itch io zombies retreat

This fun little RPG is one of the bestselling titles on itch.io at the moment and once you download it you’ll see why.

An 8-bit game in most parts but with lush XXX artwork to reward your gameplay, you find yourself on retreat at camp in the middle of the Zomi woods.

Zomi?

Yeah, no real surprises with a name like that when an outbreak within the camp starts turning guests into deadly nightstalkers.

You must save as many of your campmates as you can whilst surviving this evil plague and attempt to escape.

The camp is pretty extensive and you can explore all of the cabins to find items to help you along the way plus interact with all other survivors.

The game is priced at a minimum of $6.00 on itch.io but supporters on Patreon can get additional content and bonuses. A follow up game is in development and Zombie Retreat II looks just as good (if not better) that this highly playable and original title.

Princess & Conquest

Price$14.99
Best adult games on itch io princess and conquest

This retro style game might look pretty basic but don’t be fooled by what is a complex and epic title with hours of gaming to enjoy.

Enter this fantasy kingdom and you will find more than 400 different maps each giving you the location of necessary tools and characters to complete your quests.

Your adventure will take you through tons of cities, dungeons, forests and townships where you will meet up to 100,000 different characters across 17 different races.

Your job is to respond to a never-ending list of quests and battles to unearth treasure, resurrect the undead, find and breed companions or just have some sexy time with one of the princesses.

It’s actually pretty exhausting and this world isn’t a static one as the landscape changes all the time depending on what events are running and which princess is reigning at any time.

With so much going on, you have to be pretty committed to the gameplay as allegiances formed with one Reign vs another can really change the outcome of your adventures.

2D pixel art isn’t for everyone and, yes, the NSFW scenes aren’t 3D rendered either but Princess & Conquest is a lot more satisfying that you’d give it credit for. At times it may feel like you have a full-time job playing it but the rewards are well worth the effort.

Best adult games on itch io knightly passions

This game developed by FEYADA has all the ingredients for a classic fantasy RPG with dungeons, treasures, princesses, witches, mercenaries and monsters.

The main style of play is visual novel but also combines the mechanics of mini games and battle mode.

And there’s plenty to tempt you off your chosen path along the way with lustful sorceresses, teasing princesses and sex-starved witches.

At times quite dark and atmospheric, the artwork is hentai in style and dips into some nice fetish territory at times including BDSM and other kinks.

Gameplay is rewarded with some nicely rendered CG animation and the characters are well rounded with some decent storylines to unlock.

With complex inventories and maps, the game has a good shelf life and it will certainly keep you busy for many hours. Available to buy on itch.io at a name your own price, you can help support development at Patreon which gives you exclusive access to new content and other bonuses.

Best adult games on itch io 69 days after

Next up we have a fun little pixel art game based in a post-apocalyptic world where a virus has turned the world into flesh-eating zombies.

Your job is to manage the resources of a small group of women who have found refuge in a cottage in a small riverside gorge.

In order to survive you must make regular missions to the outside world to find food and water but, beware, you will have to fend off the attacks of other characters. They might be the risen dead seeking  their next meal of human flesh but they might also be someone looking to sate other natural desires!

It gets pretty lonely in that cottage so a part or your strategy is to keep the inhabitants sexually fulfilled and there’s plenty of XXX artwork (‘Polaroids’) to help you meet their fantasies.

69 Days After isn’t a complex or sophisticated game but is something fun to spend up to an hour at a time just playing around with. We certainly didn’t lose any sleep worrying about how to level up but we definitely had some retro fun.

Another popular futa title, Demons Rise Up is a demo of a game which has been in development since December 2020 and has been gaining a lot of interest on itch.io

It’s not an epic story by any means nor does it include much complexity but it is a fun little title with some classic ingredients for an adult game.

The main character, Suzy, is a futa pro-gamer who accidentally (?) summons a succubus through a cursed video game (we’ve all been there!). After a night spent satisfying the demon with some crazy lovemaking, the succubus invites some friends along for a repeat performance.

Their job is to distract Suzy away from her console so they can all enjoy some more XXX action.

The animation is 2D cartoon but there is plenty of lewd animations and sexy scenes planned to make the gameplay more rewarding. This will include some kinks like creampies, bondage and defloration as well as orgies, body worship and more.

When the war is over, these genetically modified super-soldiers are left to roam the earth and it turns out that they have needs much like our own!

Your job is simply to satisfy the XXX needs of a horny dinosaur and you get a pretty decent arsenal to do this with including Handjobs, Footjobs, Rimming, Blowjobs and Dildo Rides.

For a simple game, there’s actually a lot of fetishes at play here including dirty talk, tickling, watersports and spanking plus the obvious Daddy-play, muscle worship and inter-species interest.

It’s a cracking little game which is well worth a look even if just for the curiosity factor but you may find yourself surprised by just how hot it actually is.
