The big erotic game trend these days? Block foreign access of your website. Why? Because foreigners have been making a big deal about ero games.
Joining the likes of PC developer Minori, Yuzusoft's website sends up a standard 403 forbidden to those trying to access the page outside of Japan. And while the VisualArts Visual Antena website cannot be accessed by foreign IPs, the site does carry this amusing message: "PLEASE PLAY THE GAME OF YOUR COUNTRY IF YOU PRAY FOR THE WORLD PEACE!:-)」"
This is less xenophobia, more we-are-scared-of-pissing-people-off. It's just that a lot of those pissed off people live outside Japan. These recent defensive measures from erotic game makers come in the wake of the Rapelay controversy and subsequent rape game banning. Other measures include changing the titles of upcoming releases.
