VAN NUYS, Calif. — Adult studio Pink Visual announced today a special bonus for TopBucks webmasters who refer new customers to PinkVisualGames.com on May 11.
The studio is offering 75 percent rev share for sales on its recently released 3D ‘sex-sim’ game.
“The performance of PinkVisualGames.com has been very impressive,” Kristin Wynters, sales director said. “What we’ve seen is that the users who go beyond playing the free version tend to get hooked and make quite a few purchase upgrades, which translates to a nice payout over time for our webmasters.”
Players can control nearly every facet of the 3D sex-sim experience they create, from the appearance of the “performers” to their clothing, sexual positions, camera angles and locations. As the game goes on, players can unlock and/or purchase new locations and features, further expanding the game’s possibilities and replay value.
Pink Visual noted that the replay value is a crucial metric from an advertising affiliate’s perspective, as affiliate payouts hinge on users upgrading from the free version of the game and continuing to make in-game purchases.
Users can download and play a limited version of the game for free, but the “real fun doesn’t start until you upgrade,” Wynters said. “I’m not that much of a gamer, really, but while I was testing the game and getting familiar with it for marketing purposes, I have to admit that I got a little bit hooked on it, myself.”
She added, “There’s so much you can do with it; once you start it’s hard to walk away.”
A testament to the “stickiness” of the game is that repeat upgrade purchases are the rule, rather than the exception, for the game’s current users. According to Wynters, the current average purchase for players exceeds $50.
“We had some doubts initially about how well the game would do, but we’ve been amazed by how engaged the players become,” Wynters said. “We’ve seen some very creative scenarios in the user-created videos. Sometimes I think we’re having as much fun watching what our customers come up with as they are having in creating the scenes in the first place.”
The game currently supports only PCs using the Windows operating system, so TopBucks recommends that webmasters specifically target Windows users in their promotions.
“We have some great ads put together for PinkVisualGames, with a CTR that is far better than the industry average for banner ads,” Wynters said. “I think it speaks to the fact that surfers are hungry for something different — and that the crossover between the video gaming market and the porn market is very high, which comes as no surprise.”
