I almost can’t believe that I’m writing about this again. The first time I wrote about this was last year, early on in my blogging days – and quickly became my most viewed post, holding that record for a number of months.

Yet here we are. 2020 has arrived and Wanking Simulator is coming.

That’s probably a poor choice of words.

My thoughts then were that, even though it was an outlandish premise, it could potentially be something so ridiculously outrageous and NSFW that it might well be very entertaining. I’m no prude and I certainly wasn’t against the content being presented in a humorous manner. The game’s publisher, Ultimate Games SA, do stress in the press release that “The only sexual act will be masturbation of the main character, while the game will not show any genital organs or body fluids.” Thank goodness for that.

My major concern with the information I saw last year was that there was a somewhat unsettling and unnecessary undercurrent of homophobia in the game. Once I’d got over the shock of the title itself and read the description of the game, I was disheartened to read some cheap shots at homosexuality in the name of the main character and the setting of the game.

However, this is no longer to be found in the newest press release – and the name, concept and footage alone is likely to sell the game to the same sort of audience as games such as Postal, who are not only unmoved by notions of political correctness – they actually thrive in pushing against it (indeed, ‘lack of political correctness’ is genuinely listed on the feature list for the game). Comparisons are being sought to the risqué, boundary-pushing humour inherent in South Park, according to the marketing materials I’ve seen.

In any case, you can see for yourself whether or not the game is for you, as there’s now a playable demo available via the game’s Steam store page.

You can check out the game’s Steam store page here too. The footage is…interesting, to say the least. Which is, I suppose, to be expected for a game called Wanking Simulator. It’s certainly, er, come a long way since the last time I looked at it.

Let’s hope that the particular issue I’ve highlighted doesn’t overshadow the NSFW, outlandish humour in the game. Wanking Simulator is due on PC in the first quarter of 2020, with console versions potentially following at a later date.
