HuniePop is a tile-matching and dating simadult video game created by American game designer Ryan Koons, under the alias of HuniePot.[1] The game was released for Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux-based personal computers in January 2015, after being funded via a successful Kickstarter campaign. HuniePop is available in two different versions, an uncensored version available via Humble Bundle and MangaGamer, and a censored version via Steam.[2] The game follows the dating adventures of the main character as he or she tries to woo several different women in their home town.

In February 2015, Koons released an update that gave HuniePop a new ending that unlocks options that make it easier for players to fill out a female character's profile and select date locations, among other options.[3] Due to its strong sexual content and themes, Twitch blocked users from streaming gameplay footage of the title, regardless of which version of the game was being played.[4]

Gameplay[edit]

Gameplay focuses on the player character (who can be male or female) interacting with several different women, each of whom has her own distinct personalities and preferences. The player can interact with women by talking to them and giving them gifts. Doing this rewards the player with 'Hunie', an in-game currency that can be used to upgrade the player's stats. These stats allow the player to earn more points during dates, increasing their chance of success.

In order to progress through the game, players must take the women on dates, where they will play a tile matching game where they must make matches of 3 or more of the same tokens. The player must earn enough points to complete the date before they run out of moves. Each woman has a specific type of token that they like and dislike, and players will gain more points if they match the type of token that the woman prefers. The player can also use special items called 'date gifts' during their dates which grant positive effects to help the player earn more points. After a successful date, the player is rewarded with a picture of the woman the date was with. Each successful date will also raise the game's difficulty, making subsequent dates require more points to complete. After 3 successful dates with a woman, the player will be able to take them on a date at night, and if that date is successful, the player can bring the woman to their bedroom for one final round of tile matching (and, if this is successful, have sexual intercourse with her). Unlike regular dates, the player has unlimited moves to complete the bedroom game, but the score meter constantly drains over time, so to win, matches must be made quickly until the meter is full.Throughout the game the player is guided by Kyu, a love fairy set on turning the player into a successful Lothario. She gives the player tips on how to interact with each woman and explains how the game's various mechanics work. She also becomes dateable after one bedroom game.

Development[edit]

A Kickstarter campaign was launched with a minimum funding goal of $20,000. The Kickstarter ended successfully, raising $53,536 from 1,483 backers.[5][6]

Reception[edit]

Huniecam Studio Cheats

HuniePop has received positive reception. Hardcore Gamer gave the game a rating of four out of five, writing 'HuniePop is pornography—darn fine pornography at that—but it’s also a shockingly good puzzle game. Occasionally those two identities feel at odds with each other, but for the most part they work in concert to show you a good time.'[7]Kotaku also gave a mostly positive review, praising it for being 'strategically deep and challenging enough to kick a Candy Crush casual's ass' while also commenting that the game lacked a 'strong finish'.[8] GameZone's Mike Splechta called the game 'fun and engaging'.[9]Destructoid criticized the game's conversations as lacking in variety while stating that 'In the end, I realize this is a game that, while riddled with issues, I liked a lot. A whole lot. In fact, with better writing and some more care given to the characters to flesh them out, it could be so much more.'[10]

Legacy[edit]

Since HuniePop's release, there have been other games inspired by it, such as Front Wing's Purino Party.[11]

On April 4, 2016, Koons released a spin-off game called HunieCam Studio.[12]HunieCam Studio is an adult themed business simulation game, and features many of the characters who previously appeared in HuniePop.[13] The game's art style also shifted to a more cartoon style, away from the anime-based art. Kotaku gave HunieCam Studio a mixed review, commenting that although the game's text was occasionally entertaining, they found the overall game experience to be 'extremely boring'.[14]

A sequel, HuniePop 2: Double Date, is in production.[15] It is a sequel to HuniePop with the player controlling the same protagonist, and will feature returning characters from HuniePop and HunieCam Studio.[16][17]

Yeah, I know. This really is a prestigious website, ain’t it?

Quite some time ago I reviewed HuniePop, a tile-matching dating sim filled with erotic content, which turned out to be amazingly good. With snappy writing, beautiful art, and addicting core gameplay, HuniePop pleasantly surprised me and got me interested in developer HuniePot’s other projects. Unsurprisingly, these other projects are just the upcoming HuniePop 2 and this spin-off title.

A word of caution ahead of the review: this game is wildly inappropriate and is a very comedic take on prostitution. Some of the mechanics and situations I describe below may be perceived as insensitive or crude, but are not intended to insult anybody. This is merely a critique of the game as I experienced it.

Whereas HuniePop was a puzzle-dating game, HunieCam is a small-scale management game. You are put in charge of operating a camgirl website and Kyu, now a tough businesswoman, wants you to make mad profits.

The goal of the game is to scout potential camgirls, train them, and have them perform to earn money and increase your fanbase. You recruit girls by having one of your employees stalk a local agency, after which you can have girls perform for money at the camgirl studio or do a photoshoot to attract new fans.

Huniecam Studio

The more fans you have, the more the girls earn doing camwork. However, there is a catch here. Fans are only attracted to specific fetishes and each girl starts off satisfying only 2. You can unlock additional ones by buying items at the store, like cat ears to please the furry demographic, but this also means you are spreading the preferences of your fans when doing photoshoots and may have to invest in ad campaigns to boost the girls’ income. Do you focus on appealing to a select few fans or diversify your offering?

The girls are also not working for free. You have to stay on top of their payroll and lose the game if you end any day while in debt. While they will make more money than they cost if you keep them camming, there are so many other things that need doing. Training the girls is also nice, it increases how many fans or how much money they generate per action, but they will also demand a pay increase when they level up. These girls know no mercy.

You also have to watch their stress meter which goes up over time and as they perform jobs, and which increases even further if they can’t have a drink or cigarette when they need one. You guessed it, that’s another job you need to put girls on. In my first run, I ended up using Tiffany exclusively as an errand girl, who stocked up on alcohol and cigarettes, got new toys and items at the warehouse, and would recruit new girls whenever there was an opening I needed to fill. Characters that reach dangerous levels of stress will start refusing work and must be given a day off at the spa to regain their calm.

The riskiest part of the game is the hotel, where you can earn a full cam-session payout in a fraction of the time. However, unless you can manage to snag a condom at the store, it has a chance of inflicting an STD on the girl, which can even be incurable. On my first run, I played this very safe and only ran into one, curable STD. On my second one, I ended up with two girls forever banished to the sideline because they had unworkable diseases with no cure available at all. Even the curable ones will have major side-effects that will complicate the game for you until treatment (again bought at the store) is completed a few days later. Days that you don’t want to be wasting.

Now, it has to be said that Í’d make a terrible employer in any type of business, but HunieCam made me feel like a capitalist monster. I was constantly pushing the girls to 100% stress levels before I noticed they needed a break and was keeping them high on coke, which doubles the speed at which they do every job that day. I got girls as young as 18 depressed and sick for the rest of their lives, so I had to replace and neglect them, usually meaning their replacement was going to be facing the same issue not long after. I know it’s a digital and fake, but… I might be a terrible person.

The ultimate goal of HunieCam is to have as many fans as possible by the end of the 21st day, which is kind of tough. Earning money is fun and you can invest it into automating the clicker gameplay and increasing future payouts, but it’s fans that you need to gather, and those only pay the bills in an indirect way. And while you are working hard on getting fans, the girls are improving and their wages go up, which means you are paying more. Finding a good balance between earning money and growing the fanbase is the main objective here. It’s satisfying to pull off, but this does mean that new games have a very slow start where you’ll frequently dip down into debt and will be yearning for when you can finally build up a decent pace.

You can keep playing after the 21st day, but unlike HuniePop, there is not much to it after that besides recruiting all the girls if you really want. While each one has dialogue lines when performing actions and comes with a little paragraph of text, they are interchangeable and there is no storyline to follow with them. Even Kyu is mostly absent after the tutorial and only briefly appears for the ending to congratulate you.

And while I like the cute character designs and the reimagined takes on characters from HuniePop, there are no cinematics in this gameunless you count the loading screens, and also no full nudity. After each run of 21 days, all you get are some coins that can be spent on getting the girls new costumes and hairstyles for future runs, which doesn’t give much incentive to replay the game much.

A shame, because it’s an interesting take on a short management game. The simple loop of getting more fans to get more money is nicely complicated by items, fetishes, stress, STDs, addictions, and having to balance training with the increased payroll costs. It’s made to look like a clicker game and has the features of one, but it’s intensive and not idle at all, which makes for a surprisingly involved game. However, once it’s over and you are satisfied with your score, there is not much reason to return.
