Why are there no erotic games for Linux?
>>
Because nobody wants to bother porting/making them for a shit and obsolete OS.
>>
because people who use linux are asexual
>>
>>52618153
Because linux is written by gay people.
>>
>>52618153
Erotic games are made for nips. Nips are tech illiterate, use windows xp in 2016 and majority of them doesn't even own PC and use smartphones instead.
>>
>>52618153
But there are
>>
>>52618153
probably because the devs cba to make them compatible
>>
>>52618153
No one writes erotic games because they're passionate about it (Katawa Shoujo is a possible exception?)

They write them to sell them. It's already a very small market, and the number of people who a) want erogames b) are willing to pay for them and c) use Linux... it's very, very low.

Where?
>>
>>52618153
There is.
Ren'py is a visual novel engine, that's based on python and is very configurable.
And it's FLOSS and even ported to android.
The famous 4chan game KS was made with it as well as princess trainer.

Tsukihimay runs natively on linux through Onscripter

Shitty Ren'py games like Katawa Shoujo work too

>Why are there no erotic games for Linux?

CLI erotic games are a tough sell
>>
Just have a windows xp vm?
>>
>>52618257
Besides that most eroge run on wine just fine the not so rarely used Ren'py engine runs natively on Linux.
>>
>>52618294
>windows xp vm
Where to get that?
Install virtual box and then what?
Where do I get a win xp ISO?

Open Source and Free Software is too full of butthurt social justice warrior autists - it would be professional suicide to make a libre erotic game.

So? People still love low res pixelshit enough to make it GOTY.

GNU/Linux/FOSS is a SJW OS.
Erotic games are sexist and misogynistic.
>>
>>52618416
Thank you mr botnet
>>
>>52618167
Interestingly enough, quite a few official translations of VNs end up having to reimplement the game in renpy or whatever other engine because they might get access to the script and dialogue files but don't always get access to engine code and the engine used just won't work well with English because of how it displays text.
So a lot of official translations end up being able to be run on Linux just fine (whether or not they release a version for Linux is entirely separate)

How and where do I play this?
Does wine support it or I have to use dosbox?

How hard is it to make a CLI VN? I want to make Keit-Ai a reality.
>>
>>52618435
This desu, just install Windows 10 already. No SJWs would allow sexist Erotic games in GNU/Linux.

All you need is a Z-machine interpreter. Gargoyle is a good cross-platform one.

There are like 28 pages

At best it would take ~2,5 years for a normal-sized company to make a game like that.
