Make it Steamier: MangaGamer gets an uncensored game on Steam

Hot stuff

Well, here's a surprise: It looks like Steam is about to get its first true adult game...of sorts. MangaGamer have just announced that they've managed to prevail on the PC's premier game market to allow an uncensored version of Liarsoft's visual novel Kindred Spirits on the Roof (aka Okujou no Yurirei-san) to grace its storefront. Yes, you read that correctly, it's uncensored, and for all intents and purposes is an adult visual novel. That is definitely a first for a service that has generally stopped short of allowing that kind of content. Visual novels that have their own adult scenes have definitely been allowed before, but had to have those scenes edited or cut, so MangaGamer might be the first in a new normal for the service.

Of course, it's worth keeping in mind that despite having explicit scenes, Kindred Spirits is a fairly tame title compared to some of the content in "regular" games offered on Steam. The marketing line says the story "focuses on a lesbian relationship between two ghost girls who haunt an all-girls academy and the unrequited feelings in their hearts, unable to fully experience love during their lives." A tender tale, if anything, and thanks to that I somehow doubt we'll be seeing the likes of Starless or other, "pornier" games anytime soon. 

But still, a first is a first, and it's a good sign all around.
