Cancelled HOUSE PARTY Sex Game Makes a Censored Comeback

Developer Eek! Games launched a sex game called House Party in late June this year. Fair enough, it deals more with social skills and working partners up for a night of passionate cuddling, but like Leisure Suit Larry there were some explicit nude and sex scenes.

Certain people were offended and took to complaining to Steam that they would even allow such content to be sold. They even labelled the game as pornography. So what did Steam do? They removed the game from the shelves a month after launch and told the developer to make it more user friendly.

And so they did. The game is back, and the only major difference is that the nudity and sex are covered up by tactful signs and text. The activities are the same, you will just have to use your overactive imagination to imagine what they look like underneath.

So there's still sex and nudity, you just can't see it. It is back on Steam's shelves and you still have to enter your date of birth to access it. The developer apparently has issued a patch for those who have obtained the game whereby the censor can be removed, so basically the censor is simply there to that it can be sold on Steam.

How do you feel about nudity and sex in games? Would you feel offended and complain about others being able to play such a game? Does it matter to you? Feel free to share your thoughts with us.
