Valve has decided that it won’t be selling the latest installment of RLR Training’s “state-of-the-art” seduction simulator series, Super Seducer 3, on Steam. The game’s removal has been confirmed by developer and pickup artist Richard La Ruina, who tweeted a series of conversations from Valve noting that the company would not be allowing Super Seducer 3 on Steam due to its highly sexual content. This is despite the fact that Ruina has agreed to censor the game so it meets Valve’s guidelines.
“We have finished reviewing your latest build and we aren’t going to be able to ship Super Seducer 3 on Steam,” Valve wrote in a message to Ruina. “As we have mentioned previously, Steam does not ship sexually explicit images of real people. After multiple product resubmissions and product reviews, we feel we are at an impasse and therefore this decision is final. We do not have any additional feedback or details to share beyond what we have provided in previous conversations.”
“I’m ready to take a butcher knife to the game and take weeks to make all kind of edits,” Ruina responded. “To be clear, it would be easy enough to go through the game and make it as safe as other FMV games that you have recently shipped, totally focused on the ‘sexually explicit images of real people,’ which as a first step would be removing all the uncensored feedback clips, but also things like the gym introductions. Please give us another chance.”
Unfortunately for Ruina, Valve went on to declare that it would not be selling the game or even attempting to re-review it. Super Seducer: How to Talk to Girls and its sequel, Super Seducer 2: Advanced Seduction Tactics, are still available on the Steam store for gamers who believe that an FMV game revolving around multiple-choice answers can help them win dates with women, however.
“Super Seducer is the world’s most realistic seduction simulator,” a description for the first installment reads. “It puts you in everyday scenarios (a coffee shop, the office, a bar) and lets you do practically whatever you want, to see how it plays out with beautiful women.”
