Coming Out on Top is a gay-themed dating sim interactive novel video game developed by Obscura of Obscurasoft.
The game was made as a result of a successful Kickstarter campaign. Initially conceived as a Western equivalent to the popular anime influenced yaoibara and slash fiction games, the game was made using the free game engine Ren'Py. When the game was first beta released init was not made available on Steamincreasing its obscurity. Obscura received positive s and comments from gay males, who were thankful that a dating sim featuring gay relationships had finally been released.
Of the game, she described Coming Out On Top as "neither a hardcore sex game nor a game with any overt social or political agenda. It's a story-based relationship game that's supposed to be fun and entertaining". The basic premise involves the main character, Mark Matthews although this name is changeablecoming out to his two roommates Penny and Ian before the commencement of his final year of college, and the different men who enter into his life as a result of the choices he makes.
He also has a pet fish, who he will confide in if he shuts other interactions out of his life; one plot concludes with the protagonist being sexually mounted by his pet fish.
The storyline has elements of a porn game, with explicit or censored depending on the version of the game the player is using image of Mark and another character performing sexual acts being unlocked during each plotline. The player may begin the game by flirting with many guys, but midway through, all other interactions fall away while the strongest is pursued. The game concludes when Mark, Penny and Ian graduate college.
The gameplay is the same as other interactive novels. Alongside clicking to progress through the story to choose which man to date, the player also has the options to help Mark improve his relationships with Penny and Ian or improve his academic performance by studying and working to earn money. Once an erotic image has been unlocked during the game, it is available in the "gallery" and can be viewed at coming out on top game time. The player also has the choice to customise the beard and body hair options for each of the men, tailoring each to their personal taste.
An update to the game allows Mark access to nine additional bonus dates which are initiated through the "Brofinder" app in the main menu and are much shorter than the dates in the main game and typically only unlock two or three images for the gallery. Gaming Revolution reviewers thought the game was cute, humorous and entertaining, and a great explanation to a heterosexual man of what it's like to be a gay person. The ability to have a human-fish sexual relationship has been positively pointed out by many critics. Obscura revealed that initial criticism from the gay community came from their scepticism that a heterosexual woman could understand the gay male experience but that this criticism disappeared once gamers started playing the demo.
The second major criticism focused on not catering to enough body types. Obscura admitted that there was an over-representation of the body type she found attractive and that it was more important to ensure there were fully fleshed-out Asian and African-American storylines.
