Lastly for tonight and luckly it's not on Valve/Steam end this time but uncensored games are getting put down again not by Valve but by the territories around the world are banning the game for it's adult content and it's Negligee: Love Stories the very first uncensored Steam game...
(From Steam blog post)
Negligee: Love Stories is an adult mature game, as such I am sorry to say to comply with laws across the world, we are unable to sell our game in the following territories and it will be restricted as such on Steam:
Japan, Malaysia, Botswana, Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa, Sudan, Uganda, Bangladesh, China, Lebenon, South Korea, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Turkmenistan, Belarus, Iceland, Ukraine, Russia, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia Guyana, Iraq, Dubai, UIE and Germany
That's a lot of places so this is what they are going to do...
(continue from Steam post)In the past most of our games have stories and then the adult content is created in addition to the main story. Making it easy to censor them and still offer a full robust game. This is why all of our past games have no country restrictions as that adult content has been removed.
This is not the case for Negligee: Love Stories, the stories themselves are adult in nature and style from start to finish. If we censored this game so that everyone could play, it would remove 90% or more of the content, unforetunately that means this isnt really an option for this game. We will however continue to look into making a censored version as well as alternate versions to allay some of these restrictions, but for now we are not ready to post any such games.
andBased on the neccessity of restrictions based on adult content, none of our previous games will be patched to include adult content. Some will however be given a Free or Cheap mature content DLC pack in Steam (sadly this dlc will be restricted as all adult content must - but the base game will be unaffected) Players can then either install via Steam or if restricted gain the patch in other ways at their own discretion and at their own risk and liability.
Likewise future games will be developed to release a censored edition where possible and then have a free or cheap mature content dlc pack as well.
We do have some plans for games that are pure adult and may not be possible to be censored, if we create them and release them like we have for Negligee: Love Stories then they will likely be restricted as well. Unless players are happy with a very bare bones story in the 'censored' version.
The only other thing that may change any of these restrictions is if countries change their laws and stances on those laws or if the countries contact steam to advise the game can be officially released in that region.
