RAPE DAY Steam Listing

Steam now lists a game called RAPE DAY, saying this will be released next month (thanks Eurogamer.net). It looks like this listing is a couple of weeks old, as there are previous updates dating back a bit. The titles and topics of these updates are Controversy, Comparisons to Active Shooter, and Baby Killing Scene (SPOILERS), suggesting some trolling is going on, but that must be a mistaken impression, since Valve said that "straight up trolling" is one of the only things (besides illegality) that they say will get games removed since they announced they were allowing more games to be listed on the service. Here's a description of the game, which seems likely to spark debate over the degree of free speech players are comfortable with from an adventure game:
Control the choices of a menacing serial killer rapist during a zombie apocalypse. Verbally harass, kill, and rape women as you choose to progress the story.

It's a dangerous world with no laws. The zombies enjoy eating the flesh off warm humans and brutally raping them but you are the most dangerous rapist in town.

Rape Day is a choice driven visual novel. It does not include grinding or any other time wasting activities. So skip the foreplay and enjoy your Rape Day; you deserve it.

This? No.
But I thought we were talking more generally. I keep remembering Hotline Miami 2, where the argument back was "it isn't even rape, it's showing a part of a movie!" Yeah, but that was the twist at the end of the sequence. By then, any damage would be done.

Alright, that's fair enough, but then I'd say that anything of this kind needs to be clearly advertised outside of the game, so that you know what you're getting into. Which is exactly what this guy has done, there is no doubt on what you're getting in this 'game.'

I have no problem erring on the side of caution in general, when it comes to stuff like this. You gain more that way, and really lose nothing.

Which is fine, but then why do we allow Hitman? And not just allow it, but have every single games media website write glowing articles about how cool it all is? Why is blatant murder fine, and rape isn't?

And in the end, I would wager that the Supreme Court would unanimously rule that this game violates no laws and thus is protected under the 1st Amendment.

I don't think Steam should ban it. They allow the worst kinds of drek on there, I don't see that this is any worse.
