Has shovelware ever felt this good?

Enjoy Your Massage! is an upcoming Wii title in which players get virtual massages on virtual backs for virtual relaxation. Here is the description from the Entertainment Software Rating Board:

This is a massage simulation game in which players match patterns in order to perform back massages on clients. Players are prompted to rub specific areas of clients' backs in order to relax them.

After massages are performed correctly, players are presented with images of the female clients in various poses (e.g., lounging on a beach in a bikini, playing golf while wearing a short skirt and a cleavage-bearing top, or straddling a motorcycle). Players can also move the camera and zoom in on the reward pictures.

The ESRB gives the game an "E10+ rating for "Mild Suggestive Themes". However, the game's publisher is Microforum Ltd., and as website Tiny Cartridge points out, that publisher brought Emmanuelle Erotic Massages (above, pictured) to cell phones. According to Tiny Cartridge, the game does carry the "Emmanuelle" license. Emmanuelle is a franchise of European softcore flicks. Actress Sylvia Kristel made the character famous in the 1970s.


It's certainly possible that Enjoy Your Massage! is a port of the Emmanuelle cell phone game.
