One of these is from satrical RPG parody game,one is a promo for a pornographic parody and one character from an Applibot game.  Applibot claims to make “high quality fantasy” games.

When you’re more ridiculous than ridicule and more porny than porn, it’s time to reconsider your design principles and concept of “high quality”.

As a follow-up to our last video post illustrating the amazing originality of “sex sells”-based game design and marketing, this week’s throwback is the reminder that arbitrary sexualization basically serves as its own porn and parody already, defeating the purpose of the real things.

Keep in mind that, as far as we know, Applibot does commission original “sexy” artwork for their games instead of stealing and/or asset flipping existing images, yet most of their designs fit squarely into the trend of generic impossible metal bikinis (and sometimes are just outright horrific – open the link at own risk)

So yeah, while directly ripping off someone else is obviously wrong, perpetuating generic sexyness with your own stuff does no good to the industry either.
And most likely will lead to having your generic stuff stolen by the asset flippers anyway.

Legend of the Cryptids, a regular subject of our bingos and staple among the worst projects we keep revisiting, apparently involves characters from Les Misérables, you know, the classic historical novel

You can fight fantasy character cards with vaguely-steampunk (and/or cyberpunk?) versions of Valjean, Javert or… Fantine, including her (hypersexualized) ascended soul!
Nothing says “fighting monsters sexily” quite as much as a desperate woman suffering and dying due to the socio-economics of 19th century Paris! 

Bingoed at @michiferangst​‘s request. Thank you for bringing this to our attention!

Doing it right and then doing it very, very wrong. This game… All done by different artists for the same game, but the majority of the characters/cards are definitely on the lesser side of having clothing.

I’m on mobile so I can’t fill out a bingo card, but I’m pretty sure I’d probably get a bingo, or 5 ways to bingo with one more space. I mean, you have the metal thong, magic metal bikini…

In our experience, Legend of the Cryptids for every one decently armored woman usually delivers a ton of painfully generic ones in armor bikinis. Hell, they can’t even do a dude in sexy armor without ruining it with female boobs and butts all around him.

It’s pretty amazing they felt the need to actually make the word “seductive” a part of Leona’s name, to be sure you don’t confuse her with, say, a guardian angel. As we all know, bikini armor so totally informs us that a character is a skilled seductress and no-one else within the same franchise could possibly have the same dress code.

That game is a treasure trove of “creative” sexualized lady design.
