Valve: “Rape Day poses unknown costs and risks and therefore won’t be on Steam”

After a lengthy back-and-forth with developers of sexual and pornographic games last year, Valve relaxed Steam’s censorship policies to allow anything that’s not “illegal, or straight up trolling.” That policy was put to a significant test earlier this week when people began to notice a game called Rape Day among list of Steam’s upcoming titles - a game which promised to allow players to rape and murder women in the lawless context of an apocalyptic setting. The game immediately gained notoriety among gaming press outlets, and that led to petitions for Rape Day to be removed from Steam and coverage from mainstream outlets. Today, Valve has issued a blog post which confirms that Rape Day will not be released on Steam. “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,” Valve writes. “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.”
