House Party, Sexy 3D Game Removed From Steam Due To Complaints
House Party Censored
(Last Updated On: July 27, 2017)

[Update: The developers state that certain groups complained to Valve that House Party was pornography and had it removed from Steam.]

[Original Story:] The raunchy 3D game about sex, booze, fighting and nudity from Eek! Gamers called House Party has been removed from the Steam store and gamers are now barred from purchasing it from Valve’s digital storefront.

If you attempt to visit the store page for House Party it redirects you to the Steam front page.

Threads have slowly begun popping up on the Steam forums and on the official forums for Eek! Games’ House Party, with gamers asking why the game was removed from Steam and if it will return.

One user, Aeon Bubbles, has posted up a message from one of the developers who mentioned on Discord that the removal of House Party was due to “complaints”…

“For those wondering about the Steam removal, they said they took the game down because they “received a lot of complaints”. They are honoring all sales made, and people who purchased can still play right now, and will still receive updates. I am talking to Steam and working out the details, but the game will still be available for those who purchased, and will be back once we come to a solution.’

Aeon also posted up a message from the developers where they state that they will continue to release updates and content for those who already purchased House Party. They state…

“If you purchase the game on Steam, it is a one-time charge, and you get stable updates for life. We will be updating the game regularly.”

However, with the game no longer available on Steam, would the developers continue to roll out updates while Valve has the game barred from the store?

The official front page of Eek! Games’ website still shows the Steam store as a viable option for purchasing the title, so either they haven’t updated the site yet or they believe the game will be restored shortly.

What’s odd is that the game managed to make it through the Greenlight phase and onto the Steam store without any issues. It officially launched back on July 1st, 2017. Yet just 26 days later Valve decided to bar the game from the storefront following complaints.

The message from the developers doesn’t say what the complaints were exactly, but I did reach out to ask for further clarification and if there was any ETA on if or when the game might return to Steam.

Some gamers feel as if the removal was due to the hardcore uncensored sex scenes present in the title and the unfiltered nudity. However, Valve has let games like Ladykiller in a Bind on Steam in all of its entirety, which featured an uncensored rape scene with actual penetration. When reached for comment about the obvious double-standard in play regarding Ladykiller in a Bind, Valve opted not to respond.

Valve does have a rule about not allowing explicit sexual content on Steam, but there are some games like the aforementioned Ladykiller in a Bind that are allowed through without any reasons given. Higher profile games like The Witcher 3 and GTA V, which also contain explicit sex scenes, have also been allowed on the service. Visual novels or other adult-themed titles with hardcore sex or explicit nudity oftentimes have to censor the content in order to release on Steam, they then have extra patches released either through the developer’s site or another third-party site to patch in the uncensored content into the Steam version.

In some other odd one-off cases, games like Dragonia have appeared on Steam with some fairly adult content as well, but Valve never explained why. Dragonia is still available on the Steam store despite the explicit content, as evident with the NSFW community screenshots.

If Eek! Games decide to respond the article will be updated.

    It got removed because it’s a game about coercing people into having sex with you, for fuck’s sake.

    • So?

      • Chaltab

        The fuck do you mean ‘so’?

        Can you not imagine why Valve might not want to be selling a rape simulator? Especially in the current political climate?

        • So it’s a rape sim now?

          • Chaltab

            I just mentioned that the game revolves around coercing sex acts out of women, right? Yes it’s a fucking rape sim you idiot. The fact that you’re a mod despite not fucking understanding that is kind of horrifying.

          • LOL… so even if you choose not to engage in consensual coitus, it’s still a rape sim to you because you also have the option of using alcohol to get someone drunk to have sex with you?

            LOL

          • RichardGristle

            What exactly do you do in the game? You just converse with girls at a party and try to get them to fuck you? We used to call that “college”.

          • Pretty much yeah. “College Frat Party Sim” should have been its name.

            You just do some dumb party stuff that you would expect to do at a party, which can include having sex.

        • RichardGristle

          They seem okay with murder simulators.

          Also what about the current political climate makes rape any different now than it’s always been?

          • Chaltab

            ‘Murder simulators’ (nice Jack Thompsonism) that direct you at specific racial or gender groups don’t get a free pass on Steam. In House Party you specifically target and coerce women. I’m not saying it would be okay if the game let you blackmail men into having sex too, but that’s a stupid false equivalency.

            As for the political climate, have you missed the past few years where Tropes vs Women and GamerGate have been a thing? Like are you being deliberately obtuse or something, this has been an explosive topic since what, 2012 now?

            Valve already has enough bad press from their abysmal quality control, they don’t want more of it from a flagrantly misogynistic game like House Party.

          • In House Party you specifically target and coerce women.

            First of all, this is untrue. As I mentioned, you don’t have to coerce women and consensual activities are present. Trolling only makes you look silly.

            As for the political climate, have you missed the past few years where Tropes vs Women and GamerGate have been a thing?

            So what? Are we supposed to take lies seriously now?

          • Michael P

            lol This fucking guy! Don’t you know about Tropes vs Women, Billy? Bet you’ve never even heard of Anita!

            I can’t stop laughing!!!

        • RichardGristle

          Also what about the current political climate makes rape any different now than it’s always been?

    • So?

  • Bruce Key

    Thanks for bringing it to the attention of those who have never heard of this game (like myself), because now I want to buy a copy.

  • ItEotWaWKI

    Steam very kindly reached out to me about the removal and I am working
    with them to resolve their concerns, and get the game back up for sale.

    Steam agreed to let the game back on the site after some modifications
    (which we are working on now). They have generously offered me the
    opportunity to modify the game for re-admission to their service.

    That doesn’t sound promising…

    I didn’t get the impression from Steam’s representative that they wanted to remove my game, but more so that they were ill-equipped to handle the selling of that type of game on their store

    Fucking bullshit… VALVe has more money than god and pretty much has hegemony when it comes to PC gaming. If they want that industry to head in a certain direction, all they have to do is lean in said direction. However, they are lazy, cowardly, apathetic, cheap, avaricious, anti-consumer and every other pejorative one can think of…

    If they can allow murder sims like Hatred, Party Hard, Postal, ect.., they can allow House Party. If they can allow pre-alpha early access “games” that a even a grade-schooler has enough foresight and cognitive reason to tell will never, EVER be completed, they can allow House Party. If they can allow the billion and a half low quality asset swaps, they can allow House Party. Fucks sake, if they can allow titles that are straight-up broken, or scams that they’ll only remove when there is a significant enough mob calling the developer out, they can allow House Party…

    Fuck VALVe, and fuck their deluded, corporate whore, fantards…

    No, I will not show you on the doll where GabeN touched me…

    • “They have generously offered me the opportunity to modify the game for re-admission to their service.”

      Modify the game.

      I think we all know what that means.

  • Kiryu

    But hey remember,sjws are not gona take away your games.

  • s_fnx

    Bad move. Valve should not listen to complaints from SJWs.

  • SJWs and feminists are parasites, maggots, cancer, etc.

    Is there any chance of this game being restored if there is enough push-back?

    I sure hope people are speaking up and voicing up about their disapproval of the removal of the game though. It’s a complete disgrace.

  • Eren

    Nothing about this makes sense.

    What does “a lot of complaints” even mean? 1 person? 2? 30? And what justifies them pulling a game from a store others might find enjoyable? Who the fuck are you to do that, it’s a free market.

    What were the complaints even about, when the game followed a guideline and others of it’s nature manages to stay in the store and why didn’t they try to work around it, if a product or a work of art has a description on what it is, then you as an informed individual should know what you are getting yourself into.

    Why weren’t the developers contacted before the game was taken down? So a bunch of people complain and they instantly did it? Why wasn’t GTA V taken down when a massive amount of people complained about some of the changes the developers made? It’s a massive disrespect to a developer just to take the game out without even contacting them.

    I have never liked Steam, from the very beginning, I knew it was lost when the internet started praising, making memes and denying all criticisms towards Valve.

    But we all know it’s ideological, if I would complain about other games nothing would happen.

    • What does “a lot of complaints” even mean? 1 person? 2? 30?

      It probably means that a few SJWs and feminists have threatened to label Valve/Steam as “misogynists” all over the mainstream games media if they don’t remove the video game.

      And what justifies them pulling a game from a store others might find enjoyable?

  • Comrade Pootie

    From a European perspective this is painfully conservative. It’s sort of reversed here, we hide the beheadings and don’t censor the tiddies.

    I’m gonna buy this game, not because it looks fantastic, but we gotta take sexy back.

    • It’s sort of reversed here, we hide the beheadings and don’t censor the tiddies.

      The UK doesn’t apply to this. 😛

      • Comrade Pootie

        I’m Norwegian, we are very relaxed about nudity. No censorship. in the media. Everytime Femen is on with their shenanigans, we have tiddies on the front pages and evening news.

        • ScarredBushido

          how are you Norwegians when i comes to foreigners? i may apply for a citizenship :p

    • Fear Me I Am Free

      Horseshoe theory. It sounds very conservative, but the people who complained were very “progressive”.

      • Comrade Pootie

        it is conservative and also promoted by the hard left, yes. neopuritans

        • RichardGristle

          It’s not based on any conservative values, though. Christian conservative would be “sex before marriage is immoral and we find this harmful to the concept of the family unit”.

          The left censored it because basically they’re jealous of hotter virtual girls garnering more attention than them. They also want to completely control sex in society, which is indeed quite similar to the church of centuries ago, and I suppose hence the horseshoe.

  • Alistair

    I want eek to stand up and being counted if I was that dev I would scream foul.

  • Disqusted

    Oh look, more SJW bullying. See how easy it is for SJWs to ruin lives, because companies keep standing behind SJWs and not their actual customers.

    By the way, I happened to see Pewdie’s video of this game, and thought it was interesting because it lets people write their own scenarios. More games should allow stuff like that. I didn’t try it myself though.

    • because companies keep standing behind SJWs

      The single most biggest problem by far, and is precisely why SJWs have so much power.

      It’s simply quite astonishing on how the “misogyny” and “racism” accusation cards can make everyone fear for their lives and future. It’s nothing more than bullying and lynch-mobbing.

      And also, the “transphobe” card is getting to that level as well.

      The so-called tolerant left.

      • RichardGristle

        Yep. At some point we can’t even really blame the SJWs anymore. It’s these damn companies that are giving in and enabling their trash behavior. If most of them told the whiners to kick rocks then there would be too many to go after with BS labels like “racist” and “misogynist”.

        The parallels one can draw between the progressive left and spoiled children are remarkable.

  • So now the war against the SJWs man baby cucks is about to ramp up.

    • RichardGristle

      Hopefully.

    • What war?

      All a feminist woman has to do is scream misogyny and a non-white person to scream racism and every normie, company and business turns into white-knighting anti-Caucasian beta cucks and rushes in to their rescue.

  • Nice of Steam to remind me why I don’t use them.

    • ThyPancakeConsumed

      My hats off to you sir. I got so many games and online buddies on steam i cant really get rid of it.

      • tajlund

        Same here. With over 4000 games I can’t just leave.

  • jlenoconel

    I ended up downloading this game for free, but I would have paid for it on Steam at a discount. I really wanted to support it. I don’t know why there’s an issue with Steam allowing adult games on their service. Most PC gamers are adults, and most likely older than the majority of console gamers.

    • ThyPancakeConsumed

      In order to install steam you need to be at least 13 years old. And trust me there are many underages on steam playing call of duty, apb or conan. This is just move avoid more fingers pointing at them and having to clean up and find their standards.

      • Alistair

        Hmm 13 years old, maybe that the problem and not about questionable content.

        It reminds me of twatter you must be 13 years or over to sign up on twatter and that too gives off nudity and vile terrorists stuff. If you know how to find it that is.

        Who in their right mind let a minor sign up a site that could have porn imagines and porn games on steam and twatter.

        Then got a fucking gall saying we must “protect the kids from harmful content” to protect the kids put the Age up to 18 and stop peaching to us.

        Hypocrisy SJWs cunts.

        • ThyPancakeConsumed

          Its always about kids, especially when adults cant buy condom or ass themselves to rise their own children without pointing fingers at somebody else.

          • tajlund

            Same with the smoking thing. I’m a cigar hobbyist and my hobby is being ruined by the totalitarians under the cover of “it’s for the children”. Yet, I have not to this point seen a child smoking a premium cigar. (But, hey legalize pot and make sure there’s a shop within 100 feet of every school in town. This actually happened with my towns brief experiment in legalization. And I’m not anti-pot, I’m anti-hypocrisy.)

  • Alistair

    Billy dragonia is censored on steam till you put in the patch. It does show nipples yes. But for the hardcore stuff you get that ugly rabbit censored.

    And even when you patch it it still censored because it pixelated.

    Surely those games like that and others are at risk, and especially that deal from value and mangagamer you cover month back.

    • Thanks, I reworded the segment about it being uncensored.

      • tajlund

        And Steam has taken to erasing discussions linking to the patches, for several of this type of game.

  • Alistair

    So it begins…

    so much for steam being based mom, it never a good sign if they start pulling games. The slippery slope has started and gabe playing a hypocrisy game.

    Because steam allowed hentai patches on Steam and adult uncensored ecchi on steam, but he singled out 1 game.

    Now the left has tasted blood, what to stop them kicking up a dam fuss and hentai games and ecchi games being remove. If it doesn’t then it hypocrisy because 1 game has.

    Either way the fallout from this has started.

    • tajlund

      They have started banning discussions about hentai patches. Hell Girls, Dragonia, and some others have had this issue. I’ve had to search other places to get the patches for several games over the last few months.

  • VersVlees

    NO FUN AND SEXY TIMES ALLOWED Cyber sharia strikes again.

    Is this game that offensive? I have seen some streams/vids and thought it was a funny concept though it is not my kind of game.

    And why the hell did steam cuck out to some complaints? Its not like there are other games in the store with even more offensive and explicit content. Now they suddenly can police their store. Considering the steam store is filled with crap that should not be on there.

    • ThyPancakeConsumed

      Steam is ran by company founded by ex-micro$oft employees. Nobody follows logic if they worked for uncle Bill.

    • And why the hell did steam cuck out to some complaints?

      It depends on who is doing the complaining.

      If it’s just some insignificant casuals or normies whining then they probably would not have take any notice of them.

      However if the complaining is coming from THAT organized group of parasites (you know who) then it becomes an entirely different matter, because these people have the social power to ruin Steam/Valve.

      • VersVlees

        Bullying a developer is a different beast then trying to take on Valve/Steam and i’m pretty sure Gabe can keep his golden palace warm by throwing Benjamins in the fireplace.

        But then again Steam does buckle if the pressure gets too high for them. (like with Hatred and CS:GO gambling) So having THAT group of cockroaches crawling in steams pipes I can see why Steam dropped the game from its store.

        Man I wish someone would call the exterminator and vent the place.

      • Cinj

        I don’t believe for one second any of the usual suspects have the power to ruin a used car salesman, let alone Valve. The problem is everyone always caves to these people; no one has ever called their bluff, defiantly said FUCK YOU, and proudly stood their ground to see what would come of it. I’ll to you what would happen: not a goddamn thing but a groundswell of whining and crying before they shuffle off and find another target that will capitulate.

        • I think they do have the power.

          Take your example of a used car salesman. If this salesman did something that was deemed “offensive” by the SJWs (like commenting harmlessly on a woman’s physical appearance or suggesting that black people commit more crimes), they would all target him, get on social media, spread the news all over and make it a massive deal of “misogyny” or “racism”. The local news would pick up on it and shame the car salesman as well. The guy is then forced to apologize otherwise him and his company will be targeted for real-life protests until he resigns. And even if he DOES apologize, he will forever be shamed anyway.

          The same applies to Valve. Whilst SJWs don’t directly “ruin” the company, they do however target and go after the owners/people in charge. And because these owners know that their jobs are on the line, they will just cave and do whatever the feminists want in order to protect their jobs and the company PR. Also, don’t forget the sponsors and investors as well. Being labeled a “racist” or “misogynist” all over the media is the one of the main things that loses sponsorships and investments.

          And that is why companies and businesses keep caving into these parasites. And then there’s the other possible problem of companies and business being SJWs themselves.

          So never underestimate the stigma of being labeled as a “misogynist” or “racist”. That’s how these SJWs/feminists have so much power.

          no one has ever called their bluff, defiantly said F*CK YOU, and proudly stood their ground to see what would come of it.

          You know the story of Matt Taylor in the UK? He was the scientist that got lynch-mobbed by the feminists for wearing that shirt with the cartoons on it.

          If he had said “F*CK YOU ALL” to them, he would’ve absolutely 100% lost his job and would’ve been shamed for the rest of his life. It would also have made it practically impossible for him to get another job in the same sector.

          It’s easy for us to just say “oh he should’ve just told the SJWs to f*ck off”, but if you have a company and business that needs to make money to survive, it’s not so easy.

  • patriarchal landmine

    sjws win another victory against eeeeevil male happiness and fun.

  • Dunno if this has gotten to be related to the removal from Steam, I didn’t think it would be removed, I still could grab the game a few days ago just for fear of being removed… guess my instinct was right.

    Still rather sad it has been gone… maybe for now.

    • tajlund

      The funny part is that Porn Studio Tycoon literally is the most PG rated port thing I’ve seen in my life, lol.

  • ThyPancakeConsumed

    RPS week or two ago wrote shit about this game and in steam news feed it got several beta cucks with miserable lives defending what RPS wrote. Funny how game gets removed now. Also funny how only sjw infested news outlets can be found on steam after clicking on News in community tab. Some really fishy things related to games that were covered one way or another recently is happening.

    • Well that explains a lot.

      The Gamer Network runs a monopoly on news feeds for games on Steam. Only their content is syndicated across the Steam client, so maybe it’s not a coincidence that the hit-piece from RPS would precede the game being removed from Steam.

      • ThyPancakeConsumed

        Update: only managed to find shit RPS wrote but not steam news page with comments. If i find it will update this comment. For now link to thing incase anyone wants to take a look or use it later: https://archive.fo/lZhA3

  • Hawk Hopper

    Not my sort of game, but places like Steam and Twitch need to at least be consistent about what content they will allow.
