Dating sims on steam
Two recent examples include Nekopara and Girlish Grimoire Littlewitch Romanesque.Many PC visual novels begin with erotic content and then have it removed for subsequent releases.by Marcus Estrada [dropcap]T[/dropcap]he successfully Kickstarter-funded Coming Out On Top finally arrived and has already proven a hit with players!Even many who were not previously interested in visual novels and dating sims have suddenly found themselves as genre fans thanks to Obscurasoft’s standout title.Recently the game has also made the rounds between many popular gaming websites – introducing it to an even larger audience who didn’t Kickstart the project.Because of this, many folks have lamented the fact that it currently isn’t on Steam Greenlight.With that said, highly unique or niche titles can still do well.In particular, visual novels are a big trend on Steam as of late.
During the first week of launch adult-themed game Seduce Me saw tons of positive votes before being quickly removed.Now, with Greenlit games coming out all the time, success is much harder to obtain.There’s simply too many games launching every week!The reason is incredibly simple: Valve doesn’t allow for games containing 18 degrees of sexual content in them on the service. Well, basically, that a game would not receive an M for Mature rating from the ESRB but an Adult’s Only rating of AO.Most of us know what “sex” currently looks like in the M-rated atmosphere and it’s generally a very tame (and often awkward), obscured depiction. But any game which would escape such confines is simply not allowed on the digital storefront.
