Come one, come all, to Sexyman University!
The gates to the campus have finally opened on the new school year, and you (yes you!) have been accepted into the world’s first and only university for Sexymen! Join known and lovable characters such as the Onceler (The Lorax, 2012), Wheatley (Portal 2, 2011), Tony the Talking Clock (Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 2, 2014), Bill Cipher (Gravity Falls, 2012 - 2014), and Sans (Undertale, 2015) as you navigate university life, and perhaps… find someone to love?
Go to parties, get in disputes, help your friends, and interact with the students on campus as you progress through this new and exciting university life. Who needs studying when you have so many people to meet!
It’s all just a silly little visual novel cashing in on 2010s nostalgia with all the favourite characters you grew up with as a teenager... right? Nothing strange or unusual there! Certainly the mysterious headmaster of the school, the ever-elusive and secretive CEO, has absolutely nothing up his sleeve, and no secrets to hide!

Yup, that's right, the original Tumblr Sexyman! The Onceler (call him Oncie!) is a new student to Sexy-U, and he wants to change the world with his new invention - the Thneed!
Yeah, the guy from hit indie RPG, Undertale. He's just chilling. I don't think he even has a proper major, he says he's majoring in Minecraft...? He always has really good snacks.
The illuminati triangle guy? Yeah! Why is he human? He just is, didn't you get the memo? He's happy to be here! Also very happy to cause some chaos... maybe he can help you get some perfect grades, for a deal or two!
...Oh, the deer guy. Yeah, he's there too...? Ignore him, he's painful to look at anyways.
The Headmaster of Sexy-U! He's very charming, intelligent, and articulate; well loved by students and staff alike! ...Is there more to him than meets the eye?
Though the game is still in development, many features have been drafted, to be later implemented as we progress towards completion! These include:
And many more to come!
Sexyversity is a collaborative game development project, created using Ren’py with the help of a team of volunteers! It is officially brought to you by the creator of the Sexypedia, and will take the form of a visual novel, in which the protagonist (that’s you!) will be able to interact with Tumblr Sexymen, characters who were a part of an internet pop culture phenomenon in the 2010s.
The project started development in March of 2021, and as of now, it is still in it’s drafting stage. However, with the help of everyone involved, Sexyversity has gone from a theoretical fantasy to a fully fledged passion project!
For those who do not know, a Tumblr Sexyman is a type of character that became incredibly popular on the blogging platform Tumblr, often at incredibly disproportionate levels in comparison to other characters from the same source material. Sexymen, as the name would suggest, are considered sexy - however, this status is often questionable, in which case onlookers may suggest that the "sexy" status should be disputed. The unusual and extremely weighted fan-reaction to characters that could - by normal standards - be considered unattractive, unappealing, or uncompelling is what separates Tumblr Sexymen from regular characters that are just well-loved.
Tumblr Sexymen, as an internet phenomenon incredibly tied to media and popular culture, is not without its tropes. Other trends in characters considered Sexymen include large amounts of fanon or created characterization, often to the point where the character and the fandom-represented version of said character are wildly different; fandom injection of different narratives and personality traits into their favourite character - though widely accepted as fanon - are not often based on anything in the source material that would suggest it.
If you're looking for examples, influential figures in Sexyhistory would include: The Once-ler, Sans, Bill Cipher, Tony the Talking Clock, Nagito Komaeda, Arataka Reigen, Raymond the Cat, Geico Gecko, Wheatley, or Professor Venomous.
Notable fandom trends include the White Twink Humanization, Oncelerization, and Canon/Fanon Divergence, though there is always more to explore!
While you're here, why not familiarize yourself with the Tumblr Sexymen Wiki, or even the Tumblr Sexywoman Wiki!
Though the project is a first for many, there have been many efforts made to make sure that development goes smoothly, with work divided between different parties to make sure that those with the necessary skill sets can contribute what it is they can.
The project has been divided between leads, organizers, artists, writers, and coders, each with their own respective responsibilities, as follows:
