I´d would like to know as well
It also doesn't show up in any discussion searches or in any previous playing history for me so I am starting to think that the game is just completely removed from Steam. It's a good thing I had bought it when I did
I'd like to know same, I can't to see my achievement.
Probably got reported by trolls or something similar. Regardless being removed from the store is completely unacceptable.

It may be something related to the patch, since some comments about it where removed.
Looks like Valve manually banned this game from steam api, probably mostly likely from a steam thread about being illegal to buy this

I remember that thread -- nonsense created by a troll. So Valve is bending over to the whims of trolls now? I sure hope not! :steamfacepalm:

It's ridiculous that games like these get removed but absolute garbage like ''ISIS simulator'' and ''Blackscreen Simulator'' are still on steam. Thanks Valve.
Let's not attack other games, please. It's not nice and does nothing to help the situation.
I did not think of buying a special benefit
The game is also gone from my wishlist (it left an empty position in my ranked order). Seems like Steam's witch hunting is back. :steamfacepalm:

It may not be nice, but Valve is on fault here i'm afraid. If Valve didn't let shovelware on their store i wouldn't have to complain about stuff like this. I just feel like its completely unfair to remove product like this that has actual effort put into it instead of a game that exists for the sole reason of exploiting the steam store. I'd love to know the actual reason this game was removed though, i was actually planning to get it.

Do you have a link to that thread?
It's best not to jump to conclusions. Right now we have no idea why the game is missing. It might be an error, it might be something temporary about a totally different legal issue that we haven't imagined. I've seen many games disappear from the store temporarily and then be restored. Give it a bit of time to find out what's happening.

Many scammy games that are on the store would be removed if they actually came to Valve's attention, but they put effort into going under the radar and avoiding notice. There have been cases where a game was approved and then they changed out the entire game after approval to put in things that wouldn't be allowed. And until someone actually finds out and reports it, Valve doesn't know about it. They're not omniscient.

They keep trying to update their automated tools to make it easier to detect bad-faith games and make them less lucrative for scammers, but it's an arms race. And if you're not an expert in every subgenre of games, it's not always that easy to tell the difference between a complete scam game, a quirky indie game, and a low-quality amateur game. There are things being sold as VNs that are absolute ripoffs, but to a lot of outsiders the quality VNs look just as much like garbage.

I'm surprised MG hasn't said anything on their Twitter. It's been radio silence on their end. Supposedly, they're unaware of the game being taken down.
