I don't get it, I just don't fucking get it, do they see the insanity on twitter and think everyone in the west is a puritanical lunatic disgusted by lewd things? Is there somebody in JP circles telling developers that we are like this?
I understand they might get a negative message from all the bullshit restrictions from steam, and they are obligated to use it because they can sell a lot there, but all they have to do is to release the censored game in steam and leave a free patch on their website or something :hinata-acid:

Truly strange thing considering that they made 88k from a kickstarter project (PC visual novel) about Isaac newton but as a waifu. Flat chested one:kekw:. And that game had 18+ patch and was available in english. Here's the article:
Also, from the article it seems like the OG Cyanotype VN had ero-scenes. So it means both the new JP version and the global version will be censored??? And the best thing is people under their twitter thread actually want the game to have off-site 18+patch. These devs really think it's gonna work in the end:retard:.

Ok in-edit, just checked it and yeah the OG game was released in 2020 and had some 18+ content. But guess what, it's the eng version that will be "all ages" release LMAO.

I had seen a news about this, but apparently I had misunderstood it.

That's why I always say they have to be louder, just sitting down is not going to solve anything.

the news said that the developer was going to develop games for all the public and did not say it in a censorship plan, however it seemed stupid to me. The comments were full of ppl saying that it was normal that other great developers like Key and Type-moon they doed it at their time ... however I am a bit out of the VN industry so I don't know anything.

I mean if they dont want money from people who want lewd content that's their problem

the best thing to do is if you were going to support them, don't. just don't buy their games and don't signal boost or support these new all-ages releases, money specks more than people sperging out on Twitter and once they look at the fact sales on their niche VN games are a good 30~40% lower after moving away from R18 maybe they will change there tune. or just fade away. or have fun with the new puritan market idk

it is very disappointing as a lot of the old ero VN makers have been closing shop more or just making gotcha games. I recall reading a thread on /h/ that had some list of all the combines that had died or moved to gotcha. the problem is VNs are just not as profitable as they were in the past and you can tell the same story is the same-ish format within a gotcha game and make significantly more money in the long term than you would with a 30~60hr VN or something, its sad but it's just the crunching reality of the evolving markets

so yea. this is sad but if its the root they want to take I think the consequence of that is people who want lewd content can just go buy one of the billon other games with lewd content in them

and people need to come to terms with the fact they are going to live long enough to see everything they love crumble into dust and ash

...

and on that depressing note. M4 would like to cheer you up with some of her amazing homemade curry, be sure to eat it while it's hot

It seems to be a trend for VN developers to remove the erotica from their works when they target global market or when they get big enough even if that would hinder their story (good luck making good on the far side routes without sex in the Tsukihime remake Type Moon).

Proper response would be to not give them money and point out the reason as a comment on the announcement but, I'm afraid enough people will still buy the game to satisfy the company's monetary expectations.

By any chance, is it possible to play the OG Tsukihime VN in English? I think it was translated by fans, soooo it was not DMCI yet??

The localization should be interesting. It seems they changed the setting from High school to University in case people might be triggered by the legal age for consent of the fictional character.

this is also prob so they can get on steam. steam has a big stick up its ass about anything remotely adult-oriented or adult-themed being set in the high school or using high school characters, if they see even a wiff of that in a game they slam the ban hammer down and there have been many such cases of games needing to change setting due to it

but anyway what I said above in this thread stays true. don't buy it

it costs 0$ to not buy fucked shit from fucked people who hate you and everything you stand for, the easiest and bear minim thing you can do is not give these parasites money and don't give money to companies not making shit you agree with

simple as

I fear it's more the company behind the VN going full on woke and removing the 18+ also. Could even be the localizers/translators suggesting it to them, seeing how mentally ill those liberal snowflakes are.

Fictional situation: Look, it's an underage girl being sexually drawn. We must protect it!"
Real life situation : Grooming gangs rape under aged girls for years, He's a person of color, so it's cultural, and we mustn't shame them.

Was searching for the article for that real life situation, because I came across one that stated we should have pity on the abusers.

I wasn't planning on buying it. I'm not planning on buying anything from that VN publisher anymore.

Adding this Archive: archive Statement, or more like bullshit for going this woke.

They are not woke, just greedy. They believe they can become the next Type Moon/Key by going all age. Everyone, both fans and publishers, kept telling them not to do it, but they did anyway and cut out the publishers they used to work with so that they can keep all the money.

Funny, AFAIK Material Girl is still up on steam, a game where poor high school girl trying to earn money to get by, ranging from working super hard on regular part time jobs to selling her body for easy money

somethings seem to slip past the cracks but its a common trend and I've talked with devs and the like who have had issues

another one is sadly flat chested characters. if they look even remotely underage then you get the hammer. but steam can be a fikkle platform but some basic rules have been established or found out form trail and error
