Evenicle 2 Censored For Steam

Evenicle 2 Censored

The first Evenicle managed to release on Steam during a pivotal time when Valve had said that anything that wasn’t illegal or “straight up trolling” would be allowed on the store. This also came directly after one of Valve’s staff stood up on stage and said that they weren’t going to be the “taste police”. That, however, didn’t last long. While a few games managed to release on Steam unscathed and uncensored, such as Evenicle, many others since then have not.

Bokuten Unbanned

On July 29th, 2020 Valve banned the all-ages version of the visual novel Bokuten: Why I Became An Angel from developer Overdrive and publisher MangaGamer. No actual reason was given for the ban initially, but later Valve’s PR rep, Doug Lombardi, explained why it was banned and it was due to some H-scenes still being left in the files of the all-ages version of the game, even though you needed third-party tools to access them. This led to MangaGamer working with Valve to patch Bokuten, and now the game is back on the Steam store. Continue reading “Bokuten: Why I Became An Angel Unbanned From Steam”
