Leave it to Valve to constantly maintain hypocritical curation policies and a clearly biased product review team for Steam releases. This distorted philosophy is irrefutably exemplified with one of the newest game releases on Steam called Morningdew Farms: A Gay Farming Sim from Steve Nunez, Yamila Abraham, Vivichibi and Y Press Games.
So how does Morningdew Farms highlight Valve’s hypocrisy? Because the visual novel dating sim managed to launch uncensored on Steam as an Adults Only title, but Taimanin Asagi was brutally banned from the digital storefront.
This means either Valve has a hard-on of hate against big anime tiddies, or they have a secret desire for well-hung furries who aren’t afraid to flaunt the package in their panties.
In this case, Morningdew Farms was whisked through the review process with nary a word about any indefinite delays, calls for censorship, or some other stochastic variability that forces developers to have to jump through hoops to get their game approved for release.
If you check Steam forums there’s no threads about delays due to cut content, no messages from the developers about Valve going silent on them when they submitted the app for review (which is what happened recently with Games&Girls: Episode 4, where it was held up in review due to “symbols”), nor any complaints about having to change dialogue or imagery to suit the whims of the taste police who patrol the software halls of Valve’s digital distribution outlet.
If you check the SteamDB entry you’ll even note that the release date was moved up by two weeks from September 30th to September 18th. The game’s beta testing app was approved for release back in April, with the app itself for the main game being published in the database as far back as May, alongside a public demo.
The demo made it clear the visual novel contains hardcore sex scenes, as evident in KuroTsubassa’s playthrough.
So no one can use the excuse that it’s not a real R18+ game, or that the content isn’t that hardcore, or that it’s an all-ages outing. It’s clearly marked as Adults Only and contains Adults Only content. They also make it clear on the Steam store page in the mature content descriptor…
“Graphic and uncensored sex scenes between two or more males.”
And not only that, interracial sex scenes and inter-species sex scenes with a furry!
Valve is allowing all sorts of furrykin content on their platform but will prevent renown, highly celebrated works of art like Taimanin Asagi from appearing on their storefront.
You know it’s a sad day in Clown World when Otaku are more oppressed than furries.
