Top 10 “Touching” Eroge (Nukige) [Best Recommendations]

Let’s start this right off with a warning: This is an 18+ article, and if you have tender eyes, turn away while you still can! (On a serious note, some themes may not be suitable for everyone, so be warned some of the games on this list contain rape). Now that that’s out of the way, let’s explain exactly what this list entails. These are not your average eroge where you read through a lot of plot and character development and are rewarded with one or two sex scenes along the way. You are in for a wild ride of debauchery from start to literal finish!

Eroge that are focused more on sex than story are called nukige. The plot isn’t important as a storytelling device, rather it's just used to move you from one sex scene to the next. They tend to have a bad reputation, but just because the goal is simple doesn’t mean people don’t find creative ways to make it happen! While it’s hard to rate these games as they are all so special in different ways, please enjoy the best nukige has to offer!

10. SSSS: Super Secret Sexy Spy (Nakadashi Spy no Sounyuu Sousa -Shikyuu no Heiwa wa Ore ga Mamoru)

  • Released: April 2013

Iiyama Hunt is a member of the secret organization F.A.P.P.S. and is dedicated to protecting women's loins from neglect and unsatisfactory sex. Working alongside female companion Lestie, the two must take on secret missions of pleasure with unknowing women in order to protect justice. They must carry out their tasks while managing to elude the resistance that wishes to shut F.A.P.P.S. down. The life of a spy always contains sex and danger, but with Hunt, that’s the job!

With such a ridiculous premise, SSSS offers a whole lot of laughs to accompany your many exploits. Whether Hunt is rescuing a damsel from stress, inexperience, or inattention, he carries out his missions with total seriousness. Short, silly, and sexy, SSSS makes number 10 on our list.


9. Imouto Paradise

  • Released: Sept. 2014

As the older brother of your five cute little sisters, it’s your responsibility to look out for them when your parents travel overseas for work. It seems simple enough… except for the fact that all your sisters want their brother for themselves! Between responsible Aya, tsundere Rio, timid Hiyori, energetic Koharu, and stoic Michika, you end up in more trouble than you bargained for!

For those who like options and little sisters, Imouto Paradise is probably right up your alley. There isn't a whole lot of plot. Instead, you just spend your days surrounded by your little sisters who seem to have nothing on their minds but their darling onii-chan (big brother). You know why you’re there, and the plentiful scenes serve their purpose, so Imouto Paradise makes it to number 9.


8. Free Friends (Furifure)

  • Released: June 2015

Free Friends is a website that allows despondent girls and men with cash to meet for a secret exchange. But when naive Yui decides to log on to seek the love and acceptance her parents deny her, she’s in for quite the shock. When a teacher from her school shows up at the designated spot, he decides to show Yui exactly what purpose Free Friends serves.

You play the role of Sensei, a man looking to fill his time with some questionable behavior with younger girls. What’s particularly enjoyable about this game is you get to control the nature of the relationship from the beginning. Will you turn her into your personal sex slave, or will you decide to fill the void in her heart? Either way, the game is short enough that you can explore all endings without it becoming tedious.


7. Lightning Warrior Raidy III (Ikazuchi no Senshi Raidy III)

  • Released: July 2015

The third installment in the Lightning Warrior Raidy series finds our hero, Raidy, accompanied by three monsters from the previous game, who wish to aide Raidy in her search for her boyfriend. Unfortunately, these three rack up quite a debt at the local in and Raidy is forced to clear out a nearby dungeon in order to pay off their bill. At least her gluttonous companions are good for one thing; Raidy can transform with one of the three and gain differing advantages and buffs in battle. She must master each form if she is to fight off the overwhelming evil before her!

Lightning Warrior Raidy is both nukige and dungeon crawler teaming with sexy beasts for you to fight! The third installment in the series gets mentioned because of the new and fun transformation mechanic and the blessed map you get right off the bat that gets filled in as you explore! (Those of you who are already familiar with the series will rejoice). For those that aren't, you can look forward to exploring, fighting, and screwing whether or not you defeat the bosses at each level! All that changes is who's on top and who's on the bottom! You will have to be content with just images of naked monsters for a good bit of the game, so Raidy makes her mark as number 7 on our list.


6. Rondo Duo -Yoake no Fortissimo- Punyu Puri ff

  • Patch Released: June 2016

Itsuki has grown up isolated from others due to her father’s strict religious upbringing that resulted in her hating and distrusting females. When she enrolls in a new school, many of the students try to befriend and include her, but Itsuki spurns their attempts. Within the halls of this academy roams a less considerate being who terrorizes the students. A demon of lust possesses the young girls and gives them a voracious sexual appetite that causes them to attack even their closest friends, who in turn become possessed. Faced with students she refuses to become close to and a demon who threatens the peace of the school, Itsuki is in for a complicated school year.

The first thing we should mention about this game is the absolutely beautiful artwork. Unlike the standard 2D presentation most visual novels have, this game is 3D, with constant movement of the background and characters. The girls themselves have more personality than standard trope characters. Rondo Duo is one of the shorter games on our list, as such perfection could only be maintained in a tiny package.

5. Artificial Academy 2 (Jinkou Gakuen 2)

  • English Patch Released: June 2014

Artificial Academy 2 is a school-based 3D nukige where they scrapped a plot to make room for a huge number of character customizations. You can play as a student or as the teacher and switch between characters throughout the game. You can study, participate in club activities, and of course get it on with your classmates/students. With so many characteristics and interactions to explore, you’ll never regret getting up for school!

Illusion brings us many excellent 3D eroge, but what makes Artificial Academy 2 so special is the sheer number of people you can create and have in one space, and the many different types of relationships possible between characters. Consider it the sexy Sims of eroge. You could play as a girl in a relationship with her teacher who is also a bully to another student, and then go gossip with her boyfriend. You also have 5 orientations to choose from, ranging from straight to gay. With all the sexual possibilities, try not to forget about the class part!


4. Funbag Fantasy (Kyonyuu Fantasy)

  • Released: Sept. 2016

Lute Hende is well known throughout Edellant Kingdom’s Knight Academy… for being at the bottom of his graduating class. He decides to make the most of his joke of an assignment to the impoverished town of Boan. His fate is changed, however, upon meeting a succubus named Shamsiel that sets him off on a journey that will win him fame and glory! Several lovely ladies with huge… assets… help you along your journey, and in your sexual endeavors as well!

As the name implies, Lute finds himself in the company of 5 noble ladies much more highly ranked than he. However, he improves himself and his abilities for the betterment of the kingdom. The ladies are pretty good motivation for proving himself as a man too. Not only can you save the day, but you can also score a harem ending, earning this game the number 4 spot.


3. Monster Girl Quest Part 1 (Monmusu Part 1)

  • Released: July 2011

Young Luka is eager to step up to his fate at the behest of Ilias, goddess of humans, to defeat the monster girls roaming the land. Before he can finish the ritual to become a true hero, he rushes off to defend his village when he hears of monsters attacking. He spares an unconscious monster named Alice and tells her to flee before the other humans kill her. Alas, upon his return he is too late to receive the Blessing of Heroes. However, he decides to go off on his adventure anyway, with Alice in tow, to defeat the monsters who would plague his people.

We’ll go ahead and just say the art style is not what landed Monster Girl Quest so high. However the fighting system and the multitude of diverse monster girls you can have sex with definitely help make up for it. You have to figure out which combat techniques will work against specific monsters, for if you lose, they will forcefully take your ‘energy’ (yes… we mean semen). As you continue on your quest, you may find that some of the battles you face will come from within.


2. Sengoku Rance/Rance 7

  • Released: Oct. 2009

In this epic saga, warrior/pervert Rance and his slave Sill find themselves in Japan during the Sengoku Era. When they end up meeting Nobunaga and he asks for Rance’s help in ruling his province, Rance happily accepts thinking only of the numerous women he’ll be able to collect through the many battles ahead. When an evil force takes over and shakes the playing field, Rance and Sill must make alliances and defeat those that would plunge all of Japan into chaos. Rance sets out with the goals of uniting Japan into one country and uniting all the beauties of Japan into one harem.

You play as Rance, a remorseless womanizer, yet excellent general. This nukige features a very intricate battle system where you can choose generals to send to various battles as well as designate others to scout enemy territory or search for treasure. Taking over certain provinces will change the allegiance of other provinces so you can’t lightly go into battle with everyone around you. This game actually does a fair job of keeping alliances and enemies historically accurate, while using legends of the time to validate their creativity. If you like this game, make sure to check out others in the series such as Rance Quest!


1. Eroge! Sex and Games Make Sexy Games (Eroge! H mo Game mo Kaihatsu Zanmai)

  • Released: Sept. 2013

Tomoya’s life is devoted to eroge. Despite his lack of talent, his dream job is to work at an eroge company so he can have a hand in the things that bring him the most joy in life. When he stumbles upon what appears to be an opening at his dream job, he can hardly believe his luck! That is until he gets there and realizes the company is almost bankrupt, he won’t get paid unless their next game sells, and half of the workers there despise him. Tomoya won't give up on his dream, even in the face of such hardships and vows to do whatever, or whoever, needs doing to put out a good game!

Eroge! will probably resonate most with our readers as we can all relate. Filled with a fun cast outside the cookie-cutter clichés of many games, the girls you work with help bring the story to life. You get to help your coworkers improve their skills using your vast eroge knowledge. Learn about the ins and outs of the industry while learning about each of the girls who wish to create eroge just like you. For its engaging characters, engaging plot, and inclusions of a number of fetishes, Eroge! is crowned the number one nukige.


Nukige get an unfortunately simplified reputation as mere masturbation fodder, but you can see from these fine specimens it can be so much more! Their versatility and variety are often overlooked. Some games focus on a specific fetish or scenario and are written so well, the players are captivated. Some manage to leave us in tears with their humor accompanying sexual scenes. Yet others manage to weave other areas of interest we might have into an erotic adventure, delighting the nerd in all of us. There’s something intimate we experience being in control of the action, and with this list, you’re sure to find something that tickles your particular fancy. If you have any other eroge that call out to your heart (and other parts!) please leave a comment letting us know!

Hey friends! I reside in Georgia and use my degree in Japanese primarily to (barely) read doujinshi that hasn’t been translated. Beyond deciding who is best girl in whatever I happen to be watching, I really enjoy ballroom dancing, reading, crying over dating sims, karaoke, and being surrounded by beautiful things~ (You know, scenery, décor, boys, stuff like that). I also love talking about passions with others!
