Yeah, Valve considers them mods and has no standing policy on mods hosted outside of Steam, regardless of content.

Valve doesn't allow sexually explicit content as defined legally, since many nations Valve does business in have erected regulatory labyrinths around porn. Valve seems to be ok with sexual content as long as genitals aren't shown and the text description doesn't describe genitals or feature a graphic description of sexual intercourse.

Well this is a nice surprise.
Apparently Frontwing is releasing a new title, Corona Blossom in both Japanese and English on Steam (with an 18+ patch).

Not really sure what to expect, but Frontwing doesn't seem bad at all, so i'm excited!

Frontwing is awful.

They sniped a translation/release of Chiruchiru behind Sekai's back.

Now they're trying to rip gallery/sound mode out of Sharin no Kuni to sell it back as DLC in a crowdfunding campaign while using the (usually considered not that great) fan translation as a base and asking for more money than they probably need for an existing translation.

Also, this is going to be crowdfunded.

I'm cautiously excited for this, but you'd do well to keep a very watchful eye on Frontwing's localizations. All they see is $$$.

That said, though, yay for Halko singing the OP.

Gotta agree, Frontwing's not doing their best to successfully win over the hearts of the fanbase that's for sure. Great seeing more people dipping into localization, but Frontwing's doing it badly. Cutting content from your releases to sell as DLC, ignoring the adult version, and using crowdfunding, those are all pretty unfavorable.

Well, starting with Grisaia means they were learning from the "best" (Sekai).

I'm reserving an opinion on Mikandi until they actually release their first title, but so far, they seem to be doing pretty well. XD

Mikandi's been doing a good job so far despite kind of dropping the ball on Vita for Libra. "We didn't know you couldn't put porn on Vita so we won't be pursuing it." Yeah, but... everyone already knew that. They just wanted the all-ages version you were gonna put on Steam on their Vita.

They've had good intentions and a lot of attention to the fans/customers, though.

I certainly wouldn't say no to root double.

Steins;Gate 0 announced for Western release in 2016 for PS4 and Vita! S;G0 is a sequel to one of the original game's bad endings.

I just finished Root Double and it was good, especially since it doesn't have Ever17's horrendous pacing issues. Too bad the localization by SP isn't particularly good.

So, Lily Lyric Cycle Rainbow Stage is pretty much the best V/N out there. The only downside is that you need to listen to the dramas before playing. You still get the love confession scenes between the different couples, but that's pretty much all you get from the dramas, and it's even a condensed version. This is the story of Tamaki, Yuuno, and Saeka. The focus is largely on them. But you still get plenty of stuff with the other characters too.

Sadly, i did the numbers, and the dramas come out to over 9 hours, and the voiced dialogue in the V/N probably is close to that much as well, so you'd need like a six cour anime to handle it properly. '

But man do I wish it happened....
