PQube Was Committed To Keeping Gal Gun: Double Peace Uncensored
(Last Updated On: September 2, 2016)

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.

  • I’d love to see some kind of Gal Gun/DOOM mash up.

    • Der

      Hmm… Gal DOOM? If Gal Gun were to be mixed with DOOM, it wouldn’t work in practice, or you would end up with a NOT GTA.

    • DizzyGear

      How about Dead Space?

  • scemar

    they deserve so much respect for being so honest to the public and standing against all the pressure against them to censor the game

    and on guy gun, doubt it’ll happen
    it could, maybe, but the truth is that in general there’s not that much demand for that sort of games, it’d be interesting to see how it went if it happened, but generally when it comes to male fanservice the audience is more focused on the narrative of the game like the story and characters than the purely visual antics so it’s harder to make a silly game with that demographic in mind

    • Very true. Historically, games featuring male fan-service just hasn’t gone over that well compared to games with female fan-service. There’s a huge divide in sales when comparing the Sakura games to any of the Otome VNs on Steam. And you’re right, most games catering towards females that contain male fan-service are usually about the build-up, the romance and the intimacy that connects the characters together rather than just dude buns or man pecs.

      • Jim

        You’ve just described the divide between fan-service video games and the Romance book industry. It’s sexual dimorphism in action again. It’s no secret most of these SJW idiots believe that evolution stopped at the neck and blame sexual differences in the brain on Patriarchy or some other anti-female conspiracy. These dumbasses will complain about gaming being dominated by male fantasies, but have a total blind spot against books or why even terrible sappy texts like Twilight or 50 Shades of Grey exist. No, you won’t see a Guy-Gun because a majority of women already have their own sexual outlet in another medium. Women can try making their own sexy male fanservice game, but they won’t see any big returns. Best bet is to buy English translated Yaoi visual novels. Good luck with that.

        • No, you won’t see a Guy-Gun because a majority of women already have their own sexual outlet in another medium.

          Well said.

          It’s also funny because gay developers tried making a fan-service heavy game featuring lots of content that you think would attract female gamers. But the games just never found an audience.

          Men and women really do just like different things. We’ll still cover some fringe games on this site because… why not? But anyone saying that there’s equal interest for the same kind of games separately targeting males and females is being blatantly dishonest.

          Heck, most of the SJW gaming media basically have a 80/20 (or 90/10) ratio of male to female readership. Even the people pushing for forced equality don’t have the numbers to back up the very thing they’re asking for.

  • Alistair

    you quite welcome now this comes from my heart when i say hope they get the same response from guy gun.

    for the pure enjoyment for the ladies.

  • Meanwhile, at NISA:

    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 localization was good indeed. Like Kurona’s speech quirk (She pronounces Desu as Death) was handled creatively with having use Hell allot instead.
    These guys have a genuine passion for these games and are not embarrassed from their own products like NISA seemingly is.

    • >play game

      • DizzyGear

        It was actually written in Katakana in the Japanese version? Nonetheless its still a word phun on desu and death sounding very similar in Japanese.

        • No idea.

          There is an option to swap the text over to Japanese, though, so it shouldn’t be difficult to find out.

          • DizzyGear

            Turns out its even less subtle than using katakana. lol

    If Guy Gun gets made, it’ll be interesting to see if the same things above are said about it by the mainstream games media.

    I have a feeling it won’t be of course. Instead, it’ll just be passed off as “it’s just a bit of fun” and “something good for the ladies”, and will be glorified and praised through the roof for “diversity”.

    The game would not interest me in the slightest, but it would be a useful tool to point to in order to call out their hypocrisy when they spew out their future articles about “sexist” games (only when it’s FEMALE characters that are sexualized of course).

    • DizzyGear

      I woulnd mind a Gal/Guy*Gun 3 with a selectable male/female protag complete with Yaoi and Yuri routes. But yeah they’ll prolly whine they cant select some non binary bullshit gender or something.

      • “I woulnd mind a Gal/Guy*Gun 3 with a selectable male/female protag complete with Yaoi and Yuri routes.”

        That would be the more logical way of doing it, and I think that would be the way the developer and publisher would do it. Because this effectively combines and caters for both the female and male market.

        Personally myself, I have a dislike of Yaoi due to some battles with an army of very hypocritical fujoshi fangirls on various Anime forums years ago. So if Yaoi is kept away from me, good. Therefore if it were my decision I would have Guy Gun as a completely separate game so I can avoid the shit. And I imagine most fangirls would want it this way too in order to avoid the Yuri.

        Yeah, I admit I am a bit of an asshole when it comes to the issue of Yuri vs Yaoi, but hey that’s me…

        • DizzyGear

          Ive seen more guys than girls hating on Yuri tbh. I’d personally prefer a combined product since I love me some Yuri and I doubt they will bother adding Yuri routes if guy*gun and gal*gun were separate products.

          • Alistair

            i wouldnt mind both version out it not impossible legend of zelda the season series, has 2 difference games both need to be played to link each other to unlock more content.
