Steam Greenlight
« on: July 03, 2013, 10:32:02 AM »

Seen today in the Steam "Greenlight" section: A game about buying, selling, trading, and above all owning slaves. Yes, southern-style black chattel slavery, with a plantation scene and all.

I'd be right surprised if it didn't get the ol' Seduce Me veto. It's not like Valve is legally obligated to release anything that gets voted up.

Technically, the voting process is just supposed to bring things to Valve's attention. They still get final say on whether they feel like backing something.

Well, do tell what it was called.  I'm curious to see the process.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

Oddly, I didn't actually see a name.

I'm not sure I want to know what ideas they've brainstormed.

I found it again

That's why I didn't remember the name. It was just a descriptor "Slave Sim 2013"

(more like 1855, amirite?)

To deny the existance of slavery is worse than slavery itself. People need to be educated about slavery and how it works.

What? So it's okay to shoot and kill thousands of people, sometimes innocent, but you can't simulate slavery? Fuck off, you know nothing.

Less "a game about slave trading" and more "making some kind of vague statement using Greenlight".

Go support Depression Quest on Steam Greenlight because the game sounds unique and wonderful and the creator started getting harassed by manchildren for being a woman.
