Risqué Sex Game Back On Steam, With Censor Bars This Time

After being pulled from Valve's storefront over sexual content, House Party, the controversial YouTube hit, is now back on Steam. The new version of the game has prominent censor bars.

House Party is a game about going to a party and completing quests for sexy results. Its risqué subject matter attracted popular YouTubers such as Jacksepticeye and NerdCubed to the game and it became a hit, though it was later removed from Steam. The game's development studio, Eek! Games, said, "a number of complaints that were sent to Steam about the game," chief among them, "pornography".

Today, the game is back in a censored form. The game will now force a large censor bar with some cheeky text on it over sexual content. "I'm happy to say that the entire story of the game is 100% in tact [sic], and there have been no changes made to the content of the game," Eek said in a blog post from July 29. "The issue was specifically with the portrayal of sex acts. I know a lot of people are coming down hard on Steam for this, but it was expressed to me during the course of my exchange to them that they are also held to rules and regulations of their own, and they are just trying to do the best they can."

Eek have also provided a patch that will return to game to it's uncensored version, saying, "It's the best that we are able to do given the current situation … It's not ideal, but the alternative was that we would not be able to return to Steam, and if the game doesn't grow, it makes it harder for us to hire on and make the game better." This is a common solution for 18+ visual novels on Steam, such as Nekopara or Huniepop.

During my brief time with the game I didn't get to see any nudity, but the raunchy, Leisure Suit Larry atmosphere was obvious from the get go. And, like most house parties I attend, I attempted to get a girl a drink and a straight edge dude punched me in the head until I passed out.

    I think this whole thing winds up back on Valves quality control (or lack there of) situation.

    The thing that really annoys me is that I kinda missed the boat on this one, sounded like a bit of fun.

    God, I'm so glad I can murder the fuck outta people, pull their guts out of their bodies in random games, kill people viscerally... see gore... blood... guts and even shit... so glad.

    But I tell you seeing one dick sucked IS JUST TOO FAR.

      I tell ya, when a man can't release a few knuckle children in the privacy of his neighbours house while he's at work because my PC won't the the game, there is something seriously wrong with society.

      its more about the highly questionable follow on from 'trying to get a girl drunk' aspects of the game, and other such non consensual things you can do in the game, especially now in a relation to the extremely concerning trend and numbers of sexual assault in such settings only just released in the last 24 hours, it just makes it even more cringeworthy than it did earlier in the week.

      Violence is universally frown on by society as a whole, woman's treatment by men is still common place (especially in such settings) hence why such things are much more likely to anger of censors.

        It was never about that, as evidenced by the games story and content being completely unchanged.......as mentioned in the article...

        .....damn it, did you get me?

          Dont use those logics and facts with Blakeavon. He doesnt like those.

        Violence is universally frown on by society as a whole

        Society likes to be seen saying no to violence. However society loves its violent games and movies. Hence our top selling game series and top selling movie series are violence based. We dont shun violence, we embrace it. Its human nature alas.

          heck people get all excited when there's a fight in sport. UFC and even the WWE (even though its staged) are big industries, because of violence, but one sex act and everyone suddenly becomes a prude

    Why the hell was it removed for the ugly mannequin sex and not the sexual assault and date rape?

    Let people have their mannequin sex.
