‘Cheat(er) Code’ Delivers Video Game Nostalgia With A Sexy Twist

by James Ferguson

The latest from Limerence Press, an imprint under Oni Press is coming in September 2020 with Cheat(er) Code, an original graphic novel from writer S.A. Foxe, artist Daz, and letterer Harry Otterman. It follows a young man named Kennedy, reeling from a potentially relationship-changing fight with his boyfriend Seth. He seeks solace in his trusty video games and gets up close and personal when a power surge hits, sending him into his library. It’s here he’s seduced by a silver daddy, ruts around with a few barbarians in an epic fantasy, and sorts through a lot of confusing feelings about his favorite anthropomorphic cheetah character.

Writer S.A. Foxe says:

My goal with the book was always to write something in the vein of Shortbus, with plenty of fun, funny, titillating sex, but a real emotional undercurrent and worthwhile story to prop up the bonking. And to be able to do that while paying tribute to the video games that defined my nerdy gay generation is the pixilated cherry on top.

Cheat(er) Code has Kennedy confronting his biggest fears to get back to reality before the game glitches him out of existence. It proves that sometimes the unexpected (or the unexpectedly sexy) is just what you need to hit the reset button.

Artist Daz added:

It was both fun and fulfilling for me to draw and yet also challenging in so many levels to make sure my work captured the humor and the emotional heart of S.A.’s story.

Cheat(er) Code is set for release on September 22nd, 2020.
