Steam's Double Standards?

Steam's Double Standards?

Mar 22, 2021

In the gaming world we often come across decisions made by platforms, publishers, developers that give us a bit of a head scratch.

And such is the case with the upcoming title Super Seducer 3. This is an FMV dating sim game by all accounts and to be completely honest, I didn't even know there were two of these games prior to this one. Anyways, on to the story...

It appears that Steam has made the decision to not list this game for sale in its store. After the developer Richard La Ruina had multiple correspondence with Steam, he was led to believe that approval of the game or feedback would be forthcoming. To his surprise a complete denial of the game being put in the store and therefore all the 61k users that wishlisted it are gone.

Steam claims that they "do not ship sexually explicit images of real people". And that's where the issue stems from, for me at least. Steam seems to have no problem shipping plenty of Anime styled sexually explicit images and content but far be it to actually show a real woman in lingerie.

What do you think about this decision? The source article can be found over on Kotaku
