Everyone has their ‘go-to’ game, when they kick back on a chill and just hit it, we dont think that anyones go to game is ‘Lover Boy’, a Pac-Man styled game from 1983, with a very BIG twist, a joystick waggling, button bashing RAPE ORGASM!!
Yes – you have to ‘capture’ the ladies and force them into some sex0r until they are ‘extremely pleased’ – This game was AN ARCADE GAME PEOPLE, They actually made arcade cabinets of this game, although to this date Arcade Museum rates this cabinet as “Very Rare – There is one known instance of this machine owned by an active member Lover Boy collector .It is a set of circuit boards which a collector could put into a generic case if desired.“
So just WHERE were the heads of the developers when they created this game ? What murky concept brought this up? – the devs (G.T. Enterprises) who seem to have not released any other ‘games’ are untraceable (probably locked up in a Sri-Lanken prison!) , so sat around the meeting room table someone must of piped up “hey guys what if Pac-Man had to fuck the ghosts…..” who knows how this was thought of – and even why! , but it was certainly different times back then ……. At least the dog ATTACKS you when it catches you….
Weird Retro Fact: Lover Boy is not the only game that came out of Japan in the 1980s, to feature rape as a central theme of the game play. In 1986, the game 177 was released. (177 is the Japanese criminal legislation paragraph that forbids rape.) In the game the player must pursue a girl on here way home, causing her to take a wrong turn and get lost, so that you can grab her and rape her. Like Lover Boy, the game switches into a “rape mode”, where the player must “satisfy” the girl. Going further down the spiral of strange, if you fail to satisfy her the player is arrested, if the player succeeds in satisfying her then she marries the player. The game 177 fortunately only had a limited format release, on the PC-88 and the Sharp X1. SOURCE: WeirdRetro
