Erotic game “Seduce Me” booted-off Steam Greenlight

Seduce me game

An indie game which embraces adult and erotic themes has been kicked-off of Steam Greenlight, and the developers are not too-happy.

Titled “Seduce Me”, the game is built as an erotic dating simulator, and contains a fair amount of nudity, adult language, sexual themes, and adult situations. Amsterdam-based indie developer No Reply Games wanted a boost through Valve’s new launching platform, but things didn’t go as planned.

“We submitted the game on Thursday, when Steam Greenlight launched,” said No Reply Games’ Miriam Bellard. “[Valve] took it down almost straight away,” she said.

“Many people still view games as ‘for children’ in spite of the fact that the average gamer is 30 years old,” added Bellard.

The game was pulled-down due to “violating Steam or Greenlight’s terms”, as Valve spokesperson Doug Lombardi said “”Steam has never been a leading destination for erotic material. Greenlight doesn’t aim to change that.”

In response, No Reply Games co-founder Andrejs Skuja expressed his unhappiness with the omission of their game despite the industry’s fetish for violence.

“The gaming establishment is fine with violence and gore but is uncomfortable with sexual themes”, said Skuja.

Do you think games like Seduce Me should be allowed to appear on platforms such as Steam’s Greenlight?

    You must’ve not been around when Leisure Suit Larry was a thing. The genre isn’t exactly endemic to Asian nations.

    ok… weird dating thingy is weird… and im not really supoorting the idea of an “erotic” themed game but i agree with the the indie devs on this one…
    Chainsawing a living (or slightly non living) thing with blood, guts and gore flying everywhere and splattering the screen is way better than a “below the belt” (see what i did thar ;P) Dating thingy with suggestive and sexual themes? and thats ok cause its just mindless violence… i mean, no under age kids play gears of war! (i know gears isnt on steam, its an example)

    Was around for Larry or rather Leisure suite Larry and the Land of the Lounge Lizards but that game was put into the erotic adventure game genre and not the Dating game genre and thus makes your statement invalid. Also, I was stereotyping :)

    I was looking at it from the “erotic content” point of view – which includes more than one genre. So my statement is perfectly valid. And you admitted you were stereotyping – so I don’t see why you bother with a rebuttal.

    “erotic content” is like saying this game includes dragons in a clearly fantasy type game. It does not however define the genre. You get dragons in Skyrim and dragons in Warcraft 3 but they are not the same genre at all. Thus my previous statement holds. But yeah I was stereotyping cause its fun :P
