    The troubles keep coming for Super Seducer creator Richard La Ruina. After having the latest title, Super Seducer 3, banned for sale on Steam, the proposed Nintendo Switch ports were also rejected on April 1. In order to recoup some of the porting costs, La Ruina has decided to sell the Nintendo Switch version of the first game as a ROM through an auction on rarible.com. Advertised as "possibly the rarest video game ever," the auction states that the game will never be officially released on Switch and no digital or physical copies exist, aside from the developer's. Presumably, you will need a Switch with custom firmware to run the ROM, though no specific details have been given at this point.

    An NFT is a non-fungible token. It uses blockchain technology similar to cryptocurrencies, but each token is unique, granting the buyer digital goods. The owner of an NFT does not gain the copyright of the item, only the right to resell the token on the blockchain. If one of these NFTs are purchased, it would be up to the owners whether they wanted to release it publicly or keep it for themselves.

    I don't know if the potential buyers or the creator is more stupid.

    This won't run on anything else than devkit anyway because it will be encrypted with devkit keys.

    This would be interesting if it weren't such a mundane and tasteless game. Is auctioning a rom file even legal?

    This has got to be a breach of contract. You can't get a Switch dev kit unless you sign a bunch of contracts and NDAs, and while I've never seen one, I can't imagine distributing a ROM like this is something Nintendo would let you do.

    So a questionably legal ROM of a crappy dating sim whose only value is in the manufactured controversy surrounding it. Wow. He's gonna get rich.
    This is a bullshit publicity stunt and nothing else.

    That's the first time ever an "official company" releases a game as a rom directly (and only) for CFW users, right? Interesting.

    As crude as it is this brings an interesting entry point for digital sales being hosted by blockchains. If the said blockchain would outlast, let's say, Sony's or Nintendo's "arbitrary" right to close shop on future downloads... it could potentially"future-proof" digital sales--with the rom being free to be hosted and the license being associated with a digital wallet.

    You could even transfer ownership or lend digital goods.
