Word has been spreading around the Custom Maid 3D 2 community that the upcoming game will make its release on Nutaku and Steam at some point during the spring.
There was a message from the Facebook group for Custom Maid 3D 2 shared by the lead developer who indicated that spring, 2019 was the window that they were aiming for to get the game up and out to the general public.
This was posted over on the Custom Maid 3D2 forum board.
So you will be able to purchase the game from the official CM3D2 website, or pick up a digital copy from Nutaku or Steam when the English version finally releases.
Now, obviously there were people in the thread who were concerned about this given Valve’s backtracking on being the “taste police”. Recently the company has been escalating their bans on various visual novels, some of which weren’t even H-games, and contained no nudity, nor any sexual content.
A few of the gamers in the thread noted that KISS will likely take the safe route by only allowing the basic customization features in the game, and all of the other adult-oriented content will either be relegated to DLC or off-site expansion packs. This is a smart move and something that companies like HuniePot are planning on doing for upcoming releases on Steam as well. It sounds like Neko Works may consider something similar after catching wind of Valve’s change-with-the-wind stances on their policies.
We are aware that reviewers at Valve have changed their guidelines on approving visual novel titles ambiguously. Genuinely speaking, we are very concerned that the release of Nekopara Vol.4 will be at the mercy of this seemingly random decision.https://t.co/zqW0xEZ6BV
Now you can currently acquire the Japanese version of Custom Maid 3D 2 right now over on the official website, and load it up with mods and content to your heart’s desire.
There’s even a CM3D2 sub-reddit dedicated to instructing you on how to install the software and the mods, in case you decide to grab the Japanese version of the game.
Alternatively, you can wait for this spring to purchase the official English release from KISS on either Nutaku or Steam.
