This is probably the first uncensored adult game on the Steam gaming platform. Negligee: Love Stories was approved for being listed on Steam last week, but the sexually explicit adventure game was immediately banned by several countries around the word — 28 to be precise, and probably counting.

The developer, Dharker Studios, states that it must abide by the laws for specific countries and that the restrictions are the downside of being the poster child for the first adult game on Steam, reports PCGamer. “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,” said the developer on a post on the Steam community blog.

The game is presently restricted in the following countries — Japan, Malaysia, Botswana, Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa, Sudan, Uganda, Bangladesh, China, Lebanon, South Korea, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Turkmenistan, Belarus, Iceland, Ukraine, Russia, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Guyana, Iraq, UAE, UIE and Germany.

"This is not the case for Negligee: Love Stories, the stories themselves are adult in nature and style from start to finish. If we censored this game so that everyone could play, it would remove 90 percent or more of the content, unfortunately that means this isn't really an option for this game. We will however continue to look into making a censored version as well as alternate versions to allay some of these restrictions, but for now we are not ready to post any such games," added the post.

The developer concludes by suggesting future games "will be developed to release a censored edition where possible and then have a free or cheap mature content DLC pack as well."

While the developers are thinking of a possibility of censoring the game, it is something that they are not willing at this stage as censoring the content will make the game useless as most of the content will have to be chopped off. However, they will have an age restriction and verification system in place where users will only be allowed to view and access the censored content if permitted.

Earlier this month, Valve released a set of tools that will help users filter out the adult content if they did not want to view it. Steam customers cannot even locate Negligee: Love Stories on the store unless they’re logged-in, and most importantly if the filter is not enabled.

Searching for the game states that “3 titles have been excluded from the search,” reports Motherboard. ‘When you do find the game, Steam presents you with a list of its mature content and asks you to re-verify your age before seeing its store page, even if you’re already signed into Steam,’ the report continued.

Negligee: Love Stories. Is a story of the erotic awakenings of 4 women — Charlotte, Karen, Sophie and Jasmin, where Karen’s marriage is in a sexual groove and she meets a tall, dark stranger at office. While Jasmin is a stripper, Charlotte is gay and Sophie is a nymphomaniac. Players can choose their character and work around the game through different situations of their life. Dialogues, scenes, music and a lot are not suited for audiences below the age of 18. The game involves hardcore sex scenes involving sex at office, on a train and a lot more, in astounding details.

The game is more of a visual adult novel with filthy love stories where the characters do what is decided by the player.

Negligee: Love Stories is available from Steam for $13.99 and is available on a discount of 10%.
