Nutaku launches $5m investment fund for LGBTQ+ games

Adult gaming platform hopes to support diverse titles over the next three years

Adult game platform Nutaku has established a $5 million investment plan to support LGBTQ+ titles over the next three years.

"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," said Julie Hall, Nutaku communications manager. "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."

Currently, the platform hosts over 40 games in its LGBTQ+ section. Many of those are on sale for a Pride Month event running June 25-July 2, with proceeds from game sales and merchandise going to The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Community Center.

"Nutaku is like Kongregate," said Nutaku's Jeff Tremblay last year. "With sex. And five times the traffic... Without good games, these numbers wouldn't exist. I think that's the best demonstration that the adult gaming market is a thing. It's not a fad. It's here to stay."

That line came as part of a talk at Devcom last year, an event that also saw ads for the platform posted in the men's restrooms with decidedly "boys' club" culture leanings.
