It’s not often that developers stick to their guns, especially big guns. There’s an unspoken rule in this day and age that you don’t openly support sexy time or sexy girls because it goes against the current Regressive Left political mandate being spread around in the media.
Normal people that fall in the Liberal or Conservative sector don’t mind sexy people, whether they be real or fake. PQube seems to fall within that same spectrum of normal people, which is why they’re committed to not censoring their games and they made that a rule for the recently released Gal*Gun: Double Peace for its Western release on the PS Vita and PS4.
In an interview with Siliconera from earlier in the month of August, Geraint Evans, the head of marketing at PQube mentioned that they didn’t have any problems getting their rail-shooter love game onto retail shelves for the PS Vita and PS4, and that they didn’t have to worry about removing any of the content despite all the panty shoots and fondling going on. In fact, Evans states that censoring the game was not on the table…
“I think [Gal*Gun] raised a few eyebrows among retailers in different territories – but in terms of ratings boards and platform holders, they were actually very supportive. We were always 100% committed to not censoring Gal*Gun in any way shape or form and all parties involved were okay with that.
“The only difficulty we’ve had, if you can call it that, is in advertising – it seems some parts of Gal*Gun are too much for the likes of Twitch, YouTube and Facebook!”
It’s not surprising that Twitch, YouTube and Facebook found some issues with the game. The the triumvirate of triggering have been on a downward spiral in chasing the tail of censorship, hoping desperately to bring to life George Orwell’s 1984 as quickly as possible. All three social media organizations have vowed to crackdown on “hate speech” and offensive content as often as possible, as reported by Fortune.
As for Gal*Gun: Double Peace, the game is about trying to find true love by shooting a bunch of girls with sensuality and orgasmic pleasure. If you haven’t seen the game in action you can check out the trailer below.
The game is available right now for the PS4 and PS Vita here in North America. I know, it’s surprising that a game like that is allowed over here given how often other games and titles have been censored or taken off the release slate in order to avoid controversy with SJWs in media.
However, PQube and developer Inti Creates actually want to extend their portfolio into areas that might actually please the SJWs. How could they possibly do this? Well, with Guy*Gun.
Matt Papa, the producer at Inti Creates, mentioned to Siliconera…
“I know a lot of the girls who work here want “Guy*Gun”, so we’ll see what happens with that, hehe. As for VR, I personally think it’s really cool, and that to some degree, I don’t know exactly how much, it’s going to be a big part of gaming’s future. Just going to the big trade shows over the past year or two has been more than enough to show me its big impact on the industry, and we will definitely explore the possibilities the VR presents to us as a developer.”
Inti Creates need to be careful with VR in a game like Gal*Gun, otherwise there might be a slew of articles calling the game “sexual assault” and “sexual harassment” and a “rape simulator”, which is what happened with the announcement of the VR update for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3.
