Carnal Souls is an ambitious video game I, and a few like-minded souls, are developing. It’s a text-based, open-world RPG adventure that, while being a game foremost, will feature a ton of sexy stuff. Basically imagine if Corruption of Champions had sex (which it would – lots) with The Witcher 3. I don’t think we can realistically plan for the sheer scope of The Witcher series, but that’s the trajectory I want to work towards; places to explore, stories to uncover, treasure to loot, characters to help – and then most likely have raunchy sex with afterwards.
After the initial crowdfunding kick-start, the plan is to follow the model of Corruption of Champions – continuing to update the game with new content as an ongoing project. There is no ‘finished’ state in mind as far as content goes. New stories, new characters, new stuff to do and things to get kinky with, funded by Patreon or something similar depending on what seems best when we release the first build.
Some planned key features:
- Standard RPG fare: Experience and levelling, skills and perks, randomly-generated loot, spells, questing.
- An open world containing large cities, small settlements, ruins, caves, and dungeons.
- Turn-based combat with a wide range of unique enemies and bosses.
- A powerful character-morphing system that allows you to change every feature of your body. Maybe just style your hair nice and lengthen your eyelashes, or overhaul yourself into a giant, massively-endowed demonic sex monster – or anything in between.
- Unlockable, high-quality artworks that get added to your Bestiary or Journal (Enemies and NPCs respectively), as well as background art for key locations and exploration.
- A host of races and peoples, including demons, elves, humans, and various furry races too.
- Pregnancy and inflation.
- Origin stories – begin as a merchant, a thief, a mage, the choice is yours. It will affect your starting gear and stats and how the game begins for you.
- Customisable player home.
- Begin with a direct relative (parent or sibling) or housecarl who will keep your home in order, look after your offspring if you have them, and tell you to put on some proper clothes or you’ll catch a cold.
- Titles and nicknames – earn them via quests or by performing certain tasks, or by other secret means.
- Fluid gender identification – NPCs will address you as they see you. Your clothes, your shape, your height – these will all affect how NPCs view you.
And there’s more, too. The initial release build will feature only the basics in order to get the game into your hands as soon as possible, then will be updated and grown over time. There will always be a free version of the game to play. Tiers and ‘premium’ versions we’ve not really decided upon yet, but it will be a way to thank those for supporting us, not of locking content behind a paywall.
I’m planning to run ‘Feature Feature’ updates here as we progress, where I’ll ramble about design choices and goals, and progress updates keep you all current on how Carnal Souls is coming along.

Until next time!
