What is Carnal Souls?

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. You can also follow the official Twitter account. Using those share buttons below would help us get the word out, too. <3

Until next time!

    “Pregnancy and inflation”, – you totaly got me with it.
    “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”, – and then I was sold.
    Your game will get my total support =) Can’t wait for crowdfunding to begin!

    Oooh, I love Corruption of Champions. By chance, will there by m-preg and oviposition available?

    You had me at “Origin Story”, “Character Morphing” and Open World RPG! 😀

    I am so goddamned pumped for this game, now! Especially since I loved the Witcher 2 and 3! (loved 3 more, though.) Are the origin stories going to be like Dragon Age Origins where you get your own beginning to have fun with and determine parts about your character for the rest of the game? (relationship with family, personality, goals, etc) before leading you onto the open world for you to start doing missions and follow the plot if you so choose? Are there class types?

    Sounds a bit too awesome. I hope that your plans aren’t too much for you, but I wish you the best with it. Now you have one follower more. 😀

  9. Carload says:

    Will this game be on mobile as well? (Please say yes)

  10. Zanzuki says:

    I tried to register, at https://www.carnalsouls.com/wp-login.php?checkemail=confirm, but the intro/welcome email just told me to go there and enter a username and email address. There was no place to enter a password. I received an email telling me to go to https://www.carnalsouls.com/wp-login.php?checkemail=confirm to set my password. But I couldn’t, since I needed a password before I could set one. I guessed that I was expected to choose “Forgot my password” option, and yes, that emailed me: but not a password, just another email with no password. Here is the entire 2nd email – it just ends, apparently prematurely:

    > Someone requested that the password be reset for the following account:
    > https://www.carnalsouls.com/
    > Username: selkie
    > If this was a mistake, just ignore this email and nothing will happen.
    > To reset your password, visit the following address:

    So I browsed through the site looking for anywhere that I could use to contact you, and found this. I hope you can help – I’d like to contribute.

      Hi there, I’m sorry to hear you’re experiencing problems!

      I’ve tested it on my end, all is fine… There should be a link to reset your password in that e-mail. What e-mail provider are you using? It’s showing up fine for me on GMail, so I’m wondering if your provider’s blocking the link since it’s framed in brackets.

      • selkie says:

        Sorry… I wish I’d checked back here sooner! Yes, you were exactly right. I was able to look at the raw source for the email, and find the link. Of course it had expired by now; but at least now I know what to do. Many thanks!

    The creator looks great! It’s just perfect – the right amount of humour but the rpg element is still strong in there. Amazing, can’t wait to see more from you.
    Are you thinking to add Avians as a race?
