Valve Warns Devs to Remove Pornographic Content

Valve Warns Devs to Remove Pornographic Content

A number of indie developers have received requests from Valve, similar to this one cited by MangaGamer:

We've discovered pornographic depictions in your product: Kindred Spirits on the Roof. This is a violation of our rules and guidelines for content that can be distributed on the Steam platform. We won’t be able distribute the product on Steam as long as it includes pornographic depictions.

We don't yet know exactly how many games, or developers, were sent these notices, but here are a few tweets from affected developers:

 

They all seem to be aimed at games with an anime style, but obviously Valve haven't yet issued a statement, nor are they known to do so when it comes to removing games from Steam. Some titles, including A Kiss for the Petals ~Maidens of Michael~, were removed from Steam before this notice went out, and inquiries have been ignored by PC's biggest digital storefront.

We'll keep you updated as we learn more.
