(Ero)game over man, game over! Pretty much everything in eroge banned

Things just got a lot worse for h-games and their creators and players. More details have emerged regarding the upcoming adult game regulations, and it seems that titles containing content that caters to pretty much any known fetish will be restricted or banned outright. Think I'm kidding? Almost everything outside of the missionary position is now off-limits, with the restrictions covering images (both illustrated and live-action), text, packaging, and even the publisher/developer's name.

The list of content to be restricted extends far beyond the scope of the original complaints over the Illusion Soft-published title Rapelay. Code language or euphemisms for the various listed genres is also banned. The list itself isn't finalized, more keywords may still be added, and the exact date and method of enforcement is to be announced, but it's hard to view this as anything other than a deathblow for the eroge industry.

Some publishers have begun region-based IP-blockage of their websites, including Minori, publisher of Wind: A Breath of Heart, which itself got (non-adult) manga and anime adaptations. Regardless of what you think about rape, h-games or even porn in general, this is a massive defeat for free expression. Given the sweeping nature of the regulations, we might even see the fight coming to anime, manga, and doujin works in the future.

Sigh. Hit the jump for the full list of keywords. Some don't have direct English equivalents, and may sound redundant.
