Update: A Nutaku employee has taken to the Reddit sub KotakuInAction to provide more information about the new store.

NutakuDev here. As you may have guessed, I work for Nutaku.

When our site was initially getting off the ground, we made some unfortunate compromises with payment processors to be able to host a series of popular web games. That includes changing some of the characters you see above, the majority of which have been reverted to the original form. It was shitty process and none of us enjoyed it. Luckily, the games were successful anyway.

After a massive amount of feedback from the community, we’ve made a commitment that none of the downloadable games offered in our store would be censored by us in any way. We will take them as we receive them from the publisher or not put them up at all.

When we made our announcement of a censorship-free downloadable store, we meant it. That’s the largest selling point for our product and we’re not going to walk away from it.

So unambiguously: there will be no censorship by Nutaku on the downloadable store.

Thanks.

In summary, whilst Nutaku has been known to censor some of their own games when acting as a publisher, the store will not force censorship on other publishers, nor will they censor any of their own games anymore. In other words, Nutaku really is promising a truly censorship-free adult games store.


Original Story:

In a press release earlier today, adult gaming website Nutaku announced the launch of its downloadable adult games store (NSFW).

Spokesperson Robert Mann has explained Nutaku’s intentions with the store:

The Nutaku store is a direct response to the high level of content restriction on distribution services such as Steam. With this new service, adult game developers will no longer be forced to choose between mass distribution or compromising their artistic vision. We want to give both fans and creators a censorship-free space to collaborate.

As explained, due to the high level of censorship that is required on the popular Steam platform, Nutaku hopes to be able to compete by offering developers a completely uncensored alternative for mass distributing their games.

Whilst the store is only in its first stage, Nutaku promises to ambitiously expand. Currently, the store offers titles from both Japanese and North American developers and the experience closely mirrors Steam.

Coming in Q3 of 2016 will be a downloadable client, offering friends lists, achievements, and other social features. This will also provide users with a convenient way to browse their library of games.

Nutaku Launch Sale

There is currently a week long launch sale, with title’s offering discounts ranging from 20-50%. There are 16 titles there from developers such as OVERDRIVE and Moonstone available and likely to have more. The lineup presently has: Club LifeHighschool RomanceVanguard PrincessCho Dengeki StrykerBrave SoulForgotten Not LostDeardropsRaining BlobsSecret AgendaBazooka Cafe, Divine Slice of Life, Princess Evangile, Beach Bounce, Sword of Asumi, Echo Tokyo Intro, and Discouraged Workers Teen.

Note, this article concerns Nutaku’s NSFW store, not to be confused with their non-adult, SFW store.

What do you think of Nutaku opening this type of store? Do you think Steam is overly restrictive with what is allowed on their platform? Are there any missing titles you’d like to see arrive there? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

    They need to get some really high-profile titles on their NSFW store if they want to compete directly with Steam.

  • Celerity

    I think it’s a bit silly. As many people have pointed out you can show all sorts of excessive violence in games but not consentual sexuality. There already is an AO rating, use it.if you’re worried about minors (though they can find free porn easily anyways). Most of the censored devs just sticky the uncensored patch on their Steam boards anyways and that’s apparently allowed so what is even the point?

  • Ricardo Lima

    I hope its sucess. Going to check it out.

    Welcome to MURICA, home of the puritan.

  • Badmojo7

    I like this and hope it succeeds, but they need to diversify and have actual games and not just adult games on it. They also need a dedicated client like steam/gog uses. I will be keeping an eye on it.

  • Dindu Nuffin

    The nonsense over the “porn” in the original Mass Effect is why games are still mature in narrow focus only. Violence.

    Just as tv, books and film are allowed to run an entire gamut of experiences so should videogames.

    The absurdist notion that videogames are just Pac Man and Space Invaders for children needs to end, and those in positions of influence need to stop browbeating their own audience for imaginary ‘isms’ and start pushing for more respect from other media.

    Nobody cares if you masturbated to the sexy bits in Game of Thrones, so why not afford that same respect to videogames?

  • Serathis

    We need to wait a few decades. Then the people who think that games are just Pac Man will wither and die from the rating boards.

    Nutaku
    Uncensored

    Choose one. They’re notorious for having censored their localized online eroge by removing loli content or “aging up” a character by adding terrible photoshop breasts and making really weird changes like making the eyes on some characters smaller. I haven’t paid much attention to them at all after hearing about that but unless their policies on the above have changed, I don’t see why they wouldn’t alter content or outright block it on this either.

  • Derp Minos

    Nutaku is cancer. They can go fuck themselves, they’ve ruined every single games they’ve localized with censoring any content they deemed “immoral”. Even Steam is better than them because they’re not targetting sexual content based on their morals.

  • sweeneezy

    I don’t think steam sells ao games, I can’t think of any significant retailer online or storefront that will sell ao, that’s why getting an ao is a damning mark if you want to sell your game

  • Steam sells one AO game. Hatred. It’s also the only AO game rated AO for violence.

  • Celerity

    And that itself is telling. It’s not like porn games don’t exist or can’t be found. It’s not like you cannot show excessive violence and gore. And yet everyone freaks out about consentual sex.

  • minoru

    Man those “artistic” changes they made on that game are hilariously bad.

  • BurgerUnit

    I’ve seen some of their “changes ” and I’m not sure what making the characters appear to be having an allergic reacting to a bee sting was supposed to accomplish.

  • razisgosu

    Nutaku has a long way to go before losing the censorship tag. Despite them launching Flower Girls “uncensored” it only took them a couple weeks to start censoring the title. Clearly virgin blood is too risque for Nutaku. Pretty unacceptable really.
