It's official. Steam HATES Visual Novels (and anime too by an extent).

it's not fair to say that steam hates anime

it is, however, fair to say that someone there has something against visual novels. i don't see how else a game that isn't even fucking pornographic can get banned like this.

Seems a bit early for the outrage machine. Why Steam removed the game isn't clear at all, and it might not be a ban. It could still be a misunderstanding, or something like the all-ages version accidently including adult material.

I haven't played this game, but from the vndb info it seems like it would be an odd one to be the trigger for a sudden change in policy, given how generic it seems.Last modified on 2018-12-06 at 06:11

#3 the same things have happened to a lot of other VNs recently so it is not just a random mistake. The situation right now seems to be just the same as it was back when things like kindred spirits on the roof or Huniepop got hit

Well, the article that is linked and other articles too say that Jason Ruymen and Arisa Sudangnoi are supposedly the ones who basically hate Visual Novels since they are the only ones banning them. Source? I dunno but obviously one would seem quite a guilty coward if they do not publicly take responsibility for what is basically politics. Actions like that must be made with utter confidence and transparency, no name means neither and it should obviously what their job/task entails.

Not that I know how many Valve employees can pull the trigger (to kill what is basically a business deal) or what rank they have, not that it matters.

So if you are intend on solving this arbitrary madness of doom, it'd be advised to target them and have them lose their job, or well, this task at least. Of course I am not mentioning any methods and do not condone any immoral and illegal means. Everyone is free to do what they like and bear the consequences of their actions~

Seems a bit early for the outrage machine.
I can't help but wonder if this would result in an endless circle of waiting if until then yet another work is banned - which does not sound unlikely - and eyes focus on that.

But welp, to borrow the words of a wizard or perhaps sage (not gonna argue about him being wise) who is no more... no, never mind.

I can by the by fathom what trigger'd 'em: Some of the heroines are "too cute".

#3 in a nutshell it's simply as them personally not liking what weebs like. and being sjw triggered by these games. it's all about feelings.

"muh fee fees and wah wahs".

I can by the by fathom what trigger'd 'em: Some of the heroines are "too cute".

are you implying that, these triggered sjw's, are a bunch of fat and wrinkled sagging 30 year olds? oh wait, I'm being a "benign poster" aren't I? better stop before I butthurt some people here \_(ツ)_/Last modified on 2018-12-06 at 07:01

Steam doesn't hate vn I don't think steam has self awareness(yet) its people working for steam that might hate vn.

I think Steam just hates school. Spirit Master of Retarnia got approved despite a blatant loli.

Inb4 Rance VI is approved.Last modified on 2018-12-06 at 18:11

They didn't lift most of the recent bans.

They didn't lift the ban of The Key to Home either, and this has been a long time ever since it got banned for the first time.
When will people finally realize that Steam is not a suitable platform to play VNs and finally start to stop purchasing lazy asset flips?
