Sorry your previous post was aggressive and not accurate.

We did not choose extremeism or anything of the sort. In the future we may release a more censored version of the game with the adult content blurred or altered, at the moment we have not, because until yesterday we did not know region locking would be neccessary to conform to laws in other countries. Perhaps it was stupid of us, but this is the first adult game released on Steam and so things like this are likely to occur, both Steam and us were caught be suprise when countries started banning the game prior to release and so we then discussed region locking.

If sales go well of this release we will certainly look at how we can censor the game to make it suitable elsewhere, like Japan. However please be aware this game has a significant amount of adult content and as such censoring as we used to do (removing adult content) would leave very little content left to play. Time will tell if that is something we can offer or not.

not accurate? ...hmm, about "extremeism", i apologize.

however, There is nothing to replace Steam.
Your games were attracting noticeable attention from Japanese users who do not even know English games normally.
It is a fact that you threw it all away.
Other platforms in Japan will not help. Customers are also different as Steam.

I recommend to you need to have multiple game versions and / "packages(on steam's subscription system)" on Steam like the previous post.
This is a means often used by manufacturers (in Japan in particular) that actually require multiple regulatory standards.

And so is the future kickstarter.
You locked the Steam key this time, but some kickstarter users come from japan or any Restricted country.

Hi, from Russia with love. Because the main topic is closed, I write here. I support Mr.Arkblade. For me, it looks really stupid that even in Japan, which is a motherland of eroge, you can not buy and play this game. Also, I don't know Russian laws which don't let play and buy it. The previous part of Negligee can be easily patched. You lose a lot of customers.

I'm sure you'll earn much respect fro gamers from Germany for that.
Germans are not antiquated.
Not are you forced by any law.
You're just preemptively obedient. Like a typical German would be.
Adding to this, before release, I add this game to wish list. Today I received a mail with cost and clicked on it to buy. Then I read that in my country it is blocked. It was quite rude.

Who knows... Maybe strange understanding of tolerance... In waiting of explanation:Sebastian:

The Problem is the Age verification. You have no possibility to proove youre Age in Steam.

So you can't buy it (stupid Law); when you have the possibility to deposite youre Pass as verifictaion will that be posible.

Swasikas are only allowed when the Game is educational valuable; so I think not my Gouverment allowed Wolfenstein, Battlefield or Call of Duty with Swasikas.

Playing a Nazo Soldier in Multiplayer ? I think thats will be never happend in germany.

Age verification rarely was a problem when people under 18 buy alcohol or cigarettes, but when we talking about games - o, no it is 18++. Real ♥♥♥♥. Or maybe steam becoming something like a battle.net, where you need a scan of passport for the account???
I think it is a question of a developer. For example the Witcher 3. Any censor?- no. Any problems with purchase?-no.

stfu. you are in japan. its your fault. leave the dev alone idiot.

good luck in your backwards countries.

Let's organize issues.

1. Age verification
It is a deficiency in the system. Let's expect quick improvement of valve.

2. representation law by country
This is the big reason DEV set up region lock.
This is only to create packages that are regulated in multiple stages (if you do not adopt the patch format).

Ok, this is horse ♥♥♥♥ and you know it. So you can release your other games in those countries with no problems, but this one somehow can't? Uh huh, pure horse ♥♥♥♥ right there.

Just doubled checked to make sure, yeah I can see your other games, but nope love stories is too hot for other counties to handle. I smell a lot of horse ♥♥♥♥ right there...

The dev has already explained that this game is uncut and fully uncensored. The other games are not. What about this are you not understanding?

Thank you Valaith, sadly most people just want to complain rather than read the information we have already posted explaining the situation. Ive locked this thread as people are not reading the info already laid out multiple times.
