Spinoff DLC for Niplheim's Hunter was banned & other news

Hello, the publisher, HappyHand here.

I have some good and bad news. The good news is that the developer and I decided to make the DLC free, some people said the price is fine and some said it's too high or way too high, but we decided to make it free as a thank you for all the support!

The bad news is that Steam banned the DLC because:

After review, we will not be able to ship your DLC Branded Azel - Lust Brand Prostitute on Steam. While we strive to ship most titles submitted to us, we found that this title features themes, imagery or descriptions that we won’t distribute.

Regardless of a developer's intentions with their product, we will not distribute content that appears, in our judgment, to trade in the prurient representation or exploitation of minors.

While every product submitted is unique, if your product features this representation -- even in a subtle way that could be defined as a "grey area" -- it will be rejected by Steam.

We are not interested in working with partners that dance around the edges of what's legal. For instance, setting your game in a high-school but declaring your characters are of legal age would fall into that category and be banned.

This app has been banned and cannot be reused.

I sent Steam a support ticket asking why they would ban the game when they told me they would give me feedback and guidance about content that they will not allow, hopefully they will reply back soon and I will get the DLC unbanned, but I'm extremely sorry about this, I thought Steam would at least let me know what's wrong with the game instead of just banning it without any guidance/discussion. Let's hope this was just a mistake on their part and it will be solved soon. In case I can't solve the ban in the support ticket, I'll ask if someone could visit Valve HQ to ask what's up or I'll visit them myself if I have to, but let's hope this will get solved soon.

I do have some other news:

Cards & Achievements are done and I'll release them soon!
I was supposed to release them together with the DLC, but I guess that's not going to happen very soon, so I'll just release them on their own. I'll make an announcement when they are released.

Chinese translation is nearly done!
It should be ready this week or early next week and I'll make an announcement when it's out!

I will also start hiring translators for other languages very soon!
The reason why the Chinese translation was already started is because the developer wanted it as soon as possible and I had very limited funds so I couldn't hire other translators until now.

I'll release 4 more games as soon as I can!
I have 4 more upcoming games, I'll post information about them as soon as I have them ready and this DLC situation is solved.

Sorry about the slow progress, things should speed up now and I'll post more announcements from now on.

Thank you for all the support and I hope you'll get to enjoy the spinoff DLC for Niplheim's hunter soon!

The game is now out with a 30% off Launch Discount!

The game is now out!

You are free to make any kind of review for the game you want, but if you could answer any questions in here when you write the review, it would help me give better service and information to you! For example, I can add support for other languages if there's a high demand for them!

Of course it all depends on the sales/profits, but I'll do my best to add things if a lot of people request them so make sure to mention things you would like in reviews, comments or in discussions.

Feel free to ask questions here or you can make a new discussion in the community hub too if you want!

I hope you have fun playing Niplheim's Hunter!
