@Mr SP: No high bars indeed.
Why go on steam and pay 10E for a space-bar holding fest when you can instead have instant free porn on say, the internet? Porn stars or something are slightly difficult to find, but if you just want random drawn characters, try not to drown in them.

@Geary: That's some selective memory there, because Hatred was only removed after the manbabies from the anti GG side complained to steam to remove it.

Huniepop is also on steam and it's not censored at all :P

Then countries start banning the IP to steam servers to put pressure on Steam, as people proxy into the curtained content, thereby bypassing location specific protection, and making steam in breach of local laws.

Continued. Use this curtain analogy to also prevent such games from showing up on the front-page for those who don't wish to see it, and also to hide any other content and so on. Refine it via betas. Something like this!
over 4 years ago
Continued. Screenshots from behind the curtain would be limited to those who also can peek past it. This can be enforced via mandatory use of the overlay and new functions if need be. The "curtain pass" would also need to check for local laws so Valve is covering their own ass; while showing others.

Solution: "Steam Curtain" .. adult stuff is hidden behind the virtual curtain. Eroges and similar titles will just have the normal age check and be sold censored, with a "DLC" that unlocks/re-adds the scenes available only if you can PROVE you're of proper age.

@Raxyz: Actually, Steam initially banned Hatred off the Greenlight, and only put it back after the manbabies in GamerGate cried censorship about their nazi genocide simulator not being on a singular retail outlet.

Does anybody still plays erogames even?
over 4 years ago
No, it's Steam hoping everyone forgets there's such a thing as "uncensored" so that their business model never has to get complicated. Steam's "giving you more" period is over. They're a huge established corporation now. The "taking as much as possible from you" era has begun.

Y'know, I've always found this curious.
Hatred? OK, it's just mindless murder of innocents with no reason at all and plenty of gore.
Titties? BAN THAT SHIT TO HELL, WE DO NOT CAN NOT, HAVE THIS HERE!

Wouldn't buy either though.

@Mr SP: If it was because of the porn aspect I could understand, but the steam version doesn't even have porn in it from what I hear.

The only VN I finished was Everlasting Summer, a great free-to-play game by a talented russian team. It takes place in a soviet pioneer camp and is full of russian internet memes you will likely not understand XD You can get it in steam: goo.gl/97Izvj and hentai patch on off site goo.gl/tzhIfJ

Oh. Only after looking through photo notes, I catched the pun >_< Non-steam, lol. Also Angie's face in 1st panel is frightening. Don't draw her like this, pleeease!

And this is why you get VNs from Erogedownload.

They have everything from Galaxy Angel (most kid-friendly thing on the site next to Eien no Aselia) to Shuffle! (Classic) to Muv Luv (among the best VNs of all time)

baby steps to more "mature" content
over 4 years ago
Well, Steam isnt completelly porn-free. The Witcher has completelly uncensored sex cards. Ok, the sexcards are hardly the WHOLE POINT of the game, but that means Steam is slowly opening it eyes for more "mature" content...

I advise U to play "Everlasting Summer". It is free on Steam and have a hentai patch.

@Stanislav Vladimir Evseev: Sure, question is where? It could be within the game files, but it could also be that they replaced them completely, and that only the censored files exist.

We could make every film and game family friendly but family friendly God of War wouldn't make as much success.

Very specific niches can be very profitable because in our world a small percentage of the population still is a lot of people.

You should buy and do a comic on HuniePop. It supposedly combines Dating Sim action with Match-3 games...

Censoring visual novels can be ok as long they do it right. Dengeki Stryker did a good job by adding stuff in for the space where the H scenes was. On the other hand we do not talk about If my heart had wings. That vn was completly violated in its censor

Also, Grouping Visual Novels and Erouge is not quite justified In my opinion. Ever17, 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors, Virtues last Reward, Remember 11. All these are AMAZING VN's without any erouge.

The most interesting thing is that, until there is a way to completely hide games like these (not just in library, but in terms of "name now owns X", People will be reluctant to buy them.
over 4 years ago
I found story much more to my liking that hentai. So after first scene I just fast forward all H content.
Oh, and Jo, if you like Visual Novels, I can suggest Everlasting Summer. This one got 92% positive votes on steam, and the best thing: It's FREE~!

Jo, if you don't like the hassle of mods, you could always use a manager like Nexus to make it cakewalk to install them. I personally suggest Skyrim Redone or Perkus Maximus.

I didn't actually know this. Is "Long Live The Queen" censored? That's the only visual novel I've bought so far. I've enjoyed it, but it would suck if I had missed out on anything by buying the Steam version.

I'm on the fence about censoring eroge. A lot of the time the censoring is a bit too heavy handed. I would rather be able to make the choice of not watching the ero myself than have some third party company do it for me.
over 4 years ago
As someone who hates the ero part of eroges im ok with Steam :P then again if a company will make a censored version of their game why not make it so to begin with and get a bigger audience rather than being focused for a very very specific niche?
Oh well, funny strip!
