That didn’t take long. We previously reported on the first totally uncensored adult game to be approved and launch for Steam – now the game has been banned in a number of countries for having uncensored and naked anime girls.

The game, Negligee: Love Stories, has been banned in a number of countries including the usual culprits like China, Australia, Germany, and Saudi Arabia.

Surprisingly has been blocked in Japan as well, but probably due to the fact that the game is totally uncensored and lacks mosaic censors on the genitals.

The game has been banned in the following countries:

  • Japan
  • Malaysia
  • Botswana
  • Egypt
  • Morocco
  • Nigeria
  • South Africa
  • Sudan
  • Uganda
  • Bangladesh
  • China
  • Lebenon
  • South Korea
  • Pakistan
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Turkmenistan
  • Belarus
  • Iceland
  • Ukraine
  • Russia
  • Australia
  • Papua New Guinea
  • Indonesia
  • Guyana
  • Iraq
  • Dubai
  • UIE,
  • Germany

The developer noted that the game being widely banned is likely due to its time under the spotlight as the first adult game to be approved, uncensored, for consumption on Steam.

“Several of the restricted countries banned the game which prompted us to realise that we can’t release it under the radar. You might think that it is ludicrous but Dharker Studios Ltd is a company, if we release a game in a country where the content is illegal or could be considered illegal then potentially we could suffer.

“If they fined or targeted steam as per our agreement with steam, we (Dharker Studios) would be liable for all costs and damages. which would end our company, we are a small indie developer and do not have the resources for such costs whilst making games.”

Dharker Studio rounded out their update by suggesting they might release future games with a censored edition as the main release, with “free or cheap mature content” as DLC.
