Description
Release date: Halloween, Oct 31st 2017. 3AM EST


You're alone at home in the 1990s, and you heard about grown-up websites at school. How deep can you dive into the Internet without being caught? Do you even like this stuff?

You Must be 18 or Older to Enter is a short free alternative text-based horror game.
What does that all mean? It means:
  • There are no monsters.
  • There is no death.
  • Only you,
  • 90s Internet,
  • and the fear of being caught.
  • It is also free.


You Must be 18 or Older to Enter is available on Game Jolt[gamejolt.com] and Itchio[seeminglypointless.itch.io].

Love the idea, but it's certainly got some rough edges. There is no background on the players character so I don't know if I was supposed to be an 8 year old or a 16 year old or what. On the one hand, you're left home alone which would suggest you're not too young. But on the other hand, you are STUPENDOUSLY ignorant of sex, far more ignorant than anyone in the 90s was by the end of elementary school. The average age people encounter porn has been 10 since at least the 1980s (first time it was studied that I've seen). So maybe 10, though that seems just a tad young for being left home alone.

Glad to see it got greenlit, I would love to see more games in this vein. Sexuality is always very interesting, and I prefer it when it is dealt with semi-realistically and not simply by titillating the player and pretending like that's anything but calling attention to the fact that the game makers are denying the players desires because they think they're filthy.

Dedication to artstyle and form is worth remembering, regardless of quality of product.
Dedication to artstyle and form while making something fantastic is truly noteworthy.
Blending both together to form something truly awe-inspiring is astounding.
You've earned an upvote.

Few games try to approach sexuality from a mundane perspective. Though I have my reserves about You Must Be 18 or Older to Enter (I think it could have been more precise in its depiction of mundanity, it is still stuck in a shy semi-chub state), it's of course a narrative piece that should be available on Steam.

I have used the internet in the 1990s and i can clearly tell that the developer was probably not even born during that time...
