A new game where you watch Adolf Hitler have sex with anime women is not only a cheap attempt at edgelord gamer baiting, but it also rewrites the history by showing Hitler with two fully formed nuts.
Amazingly, Sex With Hitler isn’t made by the same developers that made Sex with Stalin, another horny game about a dictator. Sex with Hitler is by Romantic Room, a developer specializing in hentai and waifu-based games.
Sex with Hitler, which released on Steam on Saturday, is a top-down shooter combined with a visual novel about Hitler’s encounters with five anime women from varying nations. The plot, which is scant, sets the player at the end of World War II, as the Führer faces his defeat. As the Russians close in on Berlin, he’s plotting to flee the country, but is determined to catch some anime ass before he does.
As a game, it sucks. Its top down shooting segments feel incredibly cheap, with generic art assets and the particle effects slider turned all the way up to the point where it’s often hard to tell what’s going on. Each shooting section lasts for only a few minutes, and is followed by poorly written dialogue that is somehow completely deranged and boring at the same time.
But its cheap illustrations, typo-riddled dialogue, and unsatisfying sex scenes are only part of what people who reviewed it negatively are upset about. Many players are disturbed by the game’s inaccurate portrayal of Hitler as having two balls.
Rumors about Hitler’s testicles circulated for years, including speculation that he lost one to shrapnel during the Battle of the Somme in WWI. But some historians insist Hitler really only had one ball. Medical records show that he had “right-side cryptorchidism,” meaning that his right nut never descended.
“Terrible game. First off Hitler was known to have one testicle (nut). However the game gets this wrong twice,” Sex with Hitler reviewer Peternutbutter wrote. “In one scene he has both of his nuts. In another scene his sack just seems to be completely nonexistent. I am incredibly disappointed with the lack of historical accuracy.”
A review that says "Terrible game. First off Hitler was known to have one testicle (nut). However the game gets this wrong twice. In one scene he has both of his nuts. In another scene his sack just seems to be completely nonexistent. I am incredibly disappointed with the lack of historical accuracy."
“Historically inaccurate, hitler has two testicles,” wrote another.
Hitler was not ripped with a six-pack and bulging biceps, either—he was afflicted with IBS, as well as heart disease and Parkinson’s.
Historical inaccuracies about the genocidal dictator’s physique aside, Sex with Hitler is bad at the one thing it’s meant to be: a porn game. The online porn game market is saturated with low-effort dating sims and visual novels, where the gameplay is mostly clicking through a series of hentai drawings and short periods of shooting.
“I don't know how the creators did it, but they somehow managed to make a game about hentai Hitler having hardcore sex with female soldiers, boring,” bkeegan_723 wrote in the reviews. “I didn't get to have sex with Hitler I had to watch him have sex,” ColeB05 wrote.
As shitty as it is, Sex with Hitler is probably just a meme baiting attempt and not a serious attempt at hate speech. Plenty of people ironically reviewed the game positively, going on about the amazing gameplay and blowing the best loads of their lives while watching anime Hitler fuck.
But Steam as a platform does have a real hate speech problem: it’s full of racist, anti-Semitic curators, groups, and games that Valve, the platform’s parent company, has allowed to thrive. Racist rants from a school shooter were allowed to stay on the platform for years. Misogynistic games like Super Seducer and its sequels are still on the platform. As an enabler of extremism, Steam has even made it onto the Anti-Defamation League’s radar.
If you want to play a video game about Hitler’s balls we highly recommend Sniper Elite 3, a game that doesn’t only accurately portray Hitler as having only one testicle in astonishing detail, but also allows you to shoot it off.
