The game is currently under re-review and Valve will follow up in short order. Over the last few days, developers and publishers of H-Games, eroge titles and more adult visual novels have been hit with takedown notices from Valve. Valve is threatening to remove these games unless they are heavily censored, though that is baffling as most huniepop mangagamer the games are already censored.
For those unaware, Huniepop launched on Steam in January of and has been allowed on the platform unchallenged for over three years. The only common theme among these games is that they feature nudity, but that does little to shed light on the real reason behind this. It mostly seems like a particular type of game is being singled out instead of ones with mainstream appeal. I got in touch with John Pickett, PR Director of MangaGamer, and Peter Rasmussen, owner and main artist of Lupiesoft, to figure out just how little they knew before getting hit with these surprise demands.
MangaGamer issued a PR statement that contained a bunch of information of what Valve had told them. Pickett confirmed everything.
They tried to appeal the notice to Valve for weeks, but got complete radio silence. Their representative gave us full approval and assured us the title was acceptable and fell within the standards for the Steam Marketplace at the time of publishing. Lupiesoft is in the same boat. One day Mutiny!!
No reason at all…they decided to just force a bad decision onto everyone in typical Valve style. At the very least we received no such notice that content standards have changed. While researching all of this, one group took to the internet to surprisingly claim responsibility for getting these games removed from Steam.
As for the future of these games, MangaGamer is looking to start its own platform to help sell adult visual novels for anyone affected. At the moment, everything is still in the planning stages.
