It’s been a good while since I’ve done one of these, and I’ve been meaning to have a proper full-on play with Honey Select Unlimited Extend’s Studio Neo for a while. No time like the present, eh?
For those just joining us, Honey Select Unlimited is a legendary hentai game from developer Illusion that is most well-known for its excellent character creation tools rather than its filthy content. (Its filthy content is very good too, mind.) Honey Select Unlimited Extend is an expansion pack for it, and part of that expansion is an all-new photo studio app to complement and/or replace the original Honey Unlimited Studio application.
The Hundred Honeys Project, meanwhile, is my ongoing attempt to break the Honey Select Unlimited studio applications by ramming as many characters as possible into a single scene without my computer exploding.

Well, the Honey Select Unlimited expansion is here, courtesy of prolific hentai localisers Fakku!
Honey Select Unlimited Extend, as the expansion is known, combines both of the expansions previously available for the original Japanese version of Honey Select. At $59.99, it’s quite pricey — that’s what the main game costs by itself — so doubtless you want to know if it’s worth a punt.
Since I’ve already written extensively about developer Illusion’s history and what Honey Select is all about previously — along with trying my best to break the Studio application — I figured the best thing to do today would be to take an extremely NSFW tour of the software with the expansion installed with you in tow, dear reader, and we can see what’s new together. So join me after the cut if you’re ready to strip off and get sweaty.
Note: This should already be obvious, but there will be boobs, fannies and knobs after the jump. If you read this at work and end up on the receiving end of a stern talking to and/or disciplinary action, I accept no responsibility. Save the filth for when you get home!

Good grief, it’s getting crowded in there… wherever I decide to take them.
It’s actually got to such a stage now that it’s seemingly impossible to get everyone in shot, so you’ll just have to take my word for it that there are now 47 Honeys in place. And they’re getting a bit rambunctious.
Hit the jump to see the latest additions to the harem…

The MoeGamer Awards are a series of “alternative” awards that I’ve devised in collaboration with the community as an excuse to celebrate the games, experiences and fanbases that have left a particular impression on me in 2018. Find out more and leave a suggestion here!
Last year, there was one game more than any other that consistently brought people to MoeGamer; I was seemingly one of the few people on the Internet who had actually written anything about it. I chose to celebrate this game with The Traffic Magnet award.
This year I encountered a similar situation with a different game — last year’s winner still regularly appears in my top search results, but the posts about this year’s winner still appear in my top posts pretty much every day.
And the winner is… somewhat NSFW, so consider this before continuing!
Ahem. As I was saying, the winner is…

Well, it’s been a while since we last checked in with the Honeys, so by popular request (all right, one person asked) it’s high time we paid them a visit.
Today I decided to let in-game assistant Sitri do all the hard work in terms of character design, while I’d do “the easy bit” — posing them in a suitable environment.
Several hours later, I feel like I may have gotten the raw end of the deal here… but the results were worth it!

That bedroom was getting a bit cramped with all the Honeys present, so I’ve moved the photoshoots to a new location. Which is already pretty full.
For those unaware, the Hundred Honeys Project is my attempt to see just how far I can push the engine of Illusion and Fakku’s excellent sex sim-cum-digital dollhouse Honey Select Unlimited — and specifically its Honey Unlimited Studio feature, which allows you to load in characters and pose them as you see fit for, you know, digital art.
Today, as a bit of a change, I thought I’d investigate the Illusion Game Cards Booru and download some creations from the wider community — specifically those that don’t make use of any external mods, just the included assets. Making use of someone else’s character couldn’t be simpler — just download the .png file from the booru, drop it in Honey Select Unlimited’s UserData\chara folder and… that’s it! The .png files contain all the info the game needs to decipher the custom character.

It’s actually been a little while since I had a play around with the excellent Honey Select Unlimited, so I thought tonight I’d settle down and make some more Honeys.
In case you haven’t stumbled across this idle little project before, my goal here is relatively simple: keep building Honeys and incorporating them into a scene until the included Studio app that comes with Honey Select Unlimited won’t let me add any more. Or my computer catches fire, whichever one comes first.
So far things have been going quite well, and there’s a few more additions to the harem today.

You may recall that a short while back I decided to see exactly how many honeys Honey Select Unlimited could handle on screen at once.
Thus far I do not appear to have reached any sort of upper limit, though the frame rate my Honey Unlimited Studio application is running at has taken something of a nose-dive.
Still, so long as I can keep squeezing honeys into a scene, I will keep doing so! So let’s take a look at the latest additions to the harem…

With how much I’ve been enjoying the recent release of Honey Select Unlimited, I thought I’d do something a bit different for today’s Waifu Wednesday.
It’s a bit of a creative project, if you will, but also an opportunity to gradually, over time, test out what Honey Select Unlimited and its companion application Honey Unlimited Studio is actually capable of. I intend to create as many virtual women as I can and squeeze as many as possible into a single scene.
So far I’ve managed eight and my computer hasn’t exploded yet. Want to meet them? Thought so.
Mild lewd warning for after the jump.

Despite the fact that as you are reading this, someone somewhere is almost certainly enjoying an intimate moment of some description right now, sex remains the ultimate taboo in video games.
This is one of many reasons why I find it so endlessly fascinating that Japan, a nation whose society is not stereotypically known for being particularly open about such things, leads the way in terms of sexually explicit entertainment, be it interactive games or non-interactive formats such as anime and manga.
Up until now, our exposure to Japan’s thriving “sex game” industry in an officially licensed capacity has primarily been through eroge and nukige visual novels. But with Western hentai localiser and publisher Fakku’s partnership with Illusion, now everyone can get their hands on one of the most world-renowned “sex sims” out there: Honey Select Unlimited. It’d be rude not to take a peek, right?
NSFW warning: This article discusses strong sexual themes and features explicit imagery after the jump. If you read it at work and get caught, I accept no responsibility whatsoever!
