A Woman’s Touch is Just What the Doctor Ordered in Super Seducer 2
A woman’s touch has often been the fix for many things. Richard La Ruina, renowned dating expert, took this knowledge to heart when he set out to create Super Seducer 2 — the inclusive sequel to Steam’s first live-action seduction and dating sim. Not only did he want women to be more strongly represented in the sequel, but he also wanted more women both in front of and behind the camera to help shape Super Seducer 2 into an educational yet amusing guide to the dating world for both men and women.
Richard’s wife, Kate La Ruina, was heavily involved with producing and directing Super Seducer 2. Producer Ludmila Vasilevich and assistant director Yulia Popovskaya also joined her on set as just a couple of the other women who helped make Super Seducer 2 a reality. Among the vibrant cast and crew of over 70 women, is actress and stuntwoman Jolie Lennon (Justice League, Wonder Woman) — who is cast as a new protagonist in the game – joined by actress and producer Rachel Warren (Mum’s List, Past Due).
Told from a woman’s perspective, the newly added levels shine a light on a side of dating rarely considered. When it comes to dating — or landing a second date, for that matter — it is often thought that a man does much of the heavy lifting. Super Seducer 2 aims to show women how they can confidently charm guys they may view as out of their league or who they aren’t sure how to attract — and offers a look at the hilarious, yet eye-opening consequences of making the wrong moves. Such is the human condition for both men and women!
“Super Seducer 2 was such a unique project to be involved in and was an incredible experience,” said Super Seducer 2 actress Rachel Warren. “Being in an interactive medium came with acting challenges which I find truly exciting. Based on the choices in the script, I switched constantly between friendly and angry — with room for a lot of fun improvisation! I think Super Seducer 2 is a valuable learning tool both for men, to learn what to do and what not to do, and also for women to learn how to deal with rude or overly persistent guys. What an experience!”
“As much as we loved the first game, we knew we could make Super Seducer 2 even better and for more than male players,” said producer Kate La Ruina. “I’m honored to have taken a more significant role this time around and work with such a talented team on the game from start to finish. We took a lot of the feedback from the original, and I’m confident that Super Seducer 2 will be an entertaining game that can also enrich people’s dating lives!”
In addition to a female cast and crew, Super Seducer 2 features not one, but two dating commentators. Players will receive feedback to their in-game choices from Richard La Ruina and newcomer Charlotte Jones. Both will offer players context to why certain choices yield specific results when dating, and criticize players who make fools of themselves through inappropriate actions.
Despite the controversy surrounding the original Super Seducer, the game went on to be a hit, selling over 80,000 copies on Steam. Super Seducer 2 is a more diverse and considerate game thanks to the work of a vibrant cast and crew of women. The game will be available for purchase on Steam for Windows PC on September 12, 2018 for $12.99 USD.
