I wouldn't be too concerned with regard to what these people say, as you're well within your rights to make a game like this. They did the same thing with Hatred, and even Sakura Clicker. They will grasp freedom of speech with one hand, while at the same time counting off their demanded exceptions with the fingers on the other. This behavior mostly comes from the pseudointellectual liberal-apologist SJW types in America and Europe, who are educated enough to understand that oppression is bad, but not intelligent enough to understand the hypocrisy inherent in their own behavior. They never think far enough to comprehend that people died for others' ability to do stuff like making this game. Their thought process stops at "it offends me!"
Real men don't get scared when stupid dogs start to bark and threaten. Their ignorance is theirs. Let them be like this. One day they'll get the same thing in return.
Creatures like bronies and social justice warriors will bark all day long.
Please, please don't. Don't give in to the "politically correct" internet hate mob that bullies developers into submission. You make aware of an important issue that still exists today and you should stand by your art no matter what. Art must offend sometimes to make aware of important issues and attempts of white-washing history should not be given in to.
Freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom from criticism.
However, it's also a difficult design to begin with. To educate children on something that was a particularly ugly part of history. Some people are obviously telling you not to bother, but the way I see it? Games have a lot of potential for learning. And not everything to be learned is pleasant.
It's also interesting that after giving it some consideration, I concluded that "Slave Tetris" was offensive in that it serves the ideas you are trying to express. That people were being reduced to objects and dehumanized.
Ultimately, you as developers are the ones who are going to have to decide what you've learned from this experience. I'm hoping that it's not "some subjects are just not worth dealing with", this is all too often the case.
Good luck in the future.
You are of course entitled to your refund - I believe there is a pretty standard system for that in Steam without knowing it in detail.
