    Rape Day will not ship on Steam
    6. MÄRZ UM 20:45 UHR - EJ
    Over the past week you may have heard about a game called 'Rape Day' coming soon to Steam. Today we've decided not to distribute this game on Steam. Given our previous communication around Who Gets To Be On The Steam Store?, we think this decision warrants further explanation.

    Much of our policy around what we distribute is, and must be, reactionary—we simply have to wait and see what comes to us via Steam Direct. We then have to make a judgement call about any risk it puts to Valve, our developer partners, or our customers. After significant fact-finding and discussion, we think 'Rape Day' poses unknown costs and risks and therefore won't be on Steam.

    We respect developers’ desire to express themselves, and the purpose of Steam is to help developers find an audience, but this developer has chosen content matter and a way of representing it that makes it very difficult for us to help them do that.


    P.S: thank you for moving it to the right forum.:grog:

    What do you mean? It makes all the difference. Valve did not create or publish it. They want nothing to do with it.

    Valve is basically like a digital Walmart. Walmart doesn't make the games, they only sell them. Walmart can choose not to sell something if they don't want to

    Valve would have been the publisher, not the developer.

    Both in the source article and your post they've claimed they do not wish to have it listed on their storefront any longer.

    valve did not make this. some guy made it and wanted to use valve's platform to sell it, and valve said no.

    "it poses unknown costs and risks" nothing from ethic or something else.....

    Probably the content of the article was lost in translation... I guess?

    I mean, it clearly states "we are all for free market, free speech, etc. but this thing is too risky, we DON'T WANT IT IN OUR DIGITAL STORE".

    The explanation from Valve is perfect, makes all the sense.

    Why would you create a game like this ? What about the game design ? I'll never understand

    From the description alone, I would think nobody would want that title to be on their digital store. It’d be simply bad PR.

    I'm not generally against banning games, but I just agree with the fact that this game should not be allowed to be published.

    Wish Steam would get rid of more low quality games like this.

    Classic "how do I get people to pay attention to me" with a game like that. Meaning utter rubbish. Pretty sure Valve decided to boot it from steam, and rightly so.
