Night Life (ナイトライフ) is an erotic graphic adventure game by Kōei,[1][2] released for the PC-8801 computer in 1982.


It was the first commercial erotic computer game, featuring sexually explicit images,[1] and a precursor to the modern bishōjo game genre.[2] It was released in April 1982. Night Life was marketed as an aid for the sex life of couples. It included such features as a schedule to determine a woman's period, and a catalog of possible sexual positions, with artwork consisting of black-and-white outlines.
