This has gotta be a joke, right? Right?!
Saya no Uta just got a Steam release yesterday as of this post.

Now there's going to be an official Steam localization? Wild. I made a joke about this being on Steam a year or so ago, didn't think it'd actually happen. From the screenshots on the Steam store page it still looks like it will be censored. But I wonder if it's possible there will be a patch later on. My hopes are high on the front though. We'll see. This blows my mind.

I will no longer be making jokes.

I'd consider supporting it if they got rid of the mosaics. I read it in Japanese so I don't know anything about the quality of the fan-translation but I would have to think getting rid of the mosaics would've been their biggest sales argument by far at this point with fan-translations in mind.

Sasuga cash-grabber-Lilith.
-Most likely used MG to see the ropes before ditching them (ok, maybe it didn't work considering the complete blackout after their initial attempt to introduce Black Lilith's titles).
-Sell this shit in 4 parts lmao.

So, not only anime boobies but even completely visible orgies (see screenshots of episode 4) are allowed on Steam now? Never even mind that it contains rapu.

Meanwhile, children will probably never be kill-able in Bethesda games and also otherwise there is maximum protection, even for fictional ones and never ever mind the very real possibility of being a detriment to real ones.

And people wonder why depression and social anxiety are on the rise~
Of course it's because of the inconsistency and the arbitrariness of society. Just one is already bad enough but if you get cuddled and spoiled to oblivion yet then dropped, regardless of age (but the later the worse), yeah... who could have been a shut-in mere 30 years ago? Now it might be even supported by the state.Last modified on 2019-08-14 at 06:04

Is it already approved or not? Because if its the former then yeah i dont know whats with Steam but if its the later it could still get rejected.
Miel games have been uploaded there but really usually there isnt even one full scene of the girls being raped since in there the games usually establishes that the girls love it midway in the scene compared to your average Lilith game where the girls are obviously getting raped and dont enjoy it until way into the games.Last modified on 2019-08-14 at 01:43

Steam bans games for showing minor(-looking) characters in """equivocal""" situations. If the game is banned, it would be because Sakura is a high-school girl, not because it has rape or whatnot. Does one of you have an example of a game banned because of such content?

Yeah that one. Taimanin has a lot of fans but its also relatively high profile so i can see garnering as much if not more attention.

#6 I guess that means even if TA makes it through then we're probably not going to see Yukikaze's games get a Steam release

Well, while not on Utea-instant-corruption levels... Lilith works sure have their characters feel ecstasy way earlier than other works (merely being in denial), after all, just how many get their body modified? Of course, it is still technically rape.

If the game is banned, it would be because Sakura is a high-school girl, not because it has rape or whatnot.
and no one finds this just a little bit odd~

So I'm guessing we're not seeing this released after all. I wasn't going to buy it but I'd still like to comment on Steam's half-assed stance on porn. Unclear, arbitrary guidelines are harmful to publishers because they won't be able to properly plan their releases. It's really no different from what Sony is doing. I imagine VN publisher's profit margins are tight enough as it is already. Arbitrary guidelines also prevent customers from making informed decisions.

Awful behaviour.

Were people really thinking this would pass? Are yous that disconnected with reality?
I know that there are many games there with rape but in those games there is gameplay so you could make the case of its merits on gameplay alone to be on steam but a VN where the only objective is to see female ninjas get brutally raped with no other merit whatsoever? Yeah no shit it wasnt going to be allowed.

On another note apparently Kagami is making a new game thats meant to be put on steam so seems like Lilith isnt giving up yet on steam bucks.Last modified on 2019-09-05 at 03:09
