Get Princess Lili for Free

Princess Lili is currently offered for free on Steam, offering the chance to get this casual RPG with a 100% discount (thanks SteamDB via Ant). The catch here is that this does not offer any English language support, so you may only be interested if you can make heads or tails out of its Chinese description:
男主角君彦是一名年轻的圣骑士,在一次返程归来时,他碰巧路过被恶魔入侵后的爱露村,同时巧遇了被恶魔追赶的丽丽。随着剧情的深入,君彦越来越意识到丽丽和整件事情的密切联系,而和丽丽在迷失小镇的冒险中,他逐渐明白了整件事情的始终,并决心一定要保护好丽丽(本游戏剧情有剧毒)

Actually there is a massive number of Asian buyers who would love this kind of giveaway. They're the reason those anime-style visual novels sell like hotcakes on Steam.
I thought that the reason those visual novels sold like hotcakes was BEWBS.

I mean, that's why I buy them but yeah lots of people love them some waifu.

Indeed well said Prez. And since when did anyone care about clearly marked foreign language games? I didn't realize that guy was a closet racist but a lot of his trashcan posting makes sense now. How dare Steam be more inclusive to offerings from other cultures, those monsters! Save us Tim!

Translation: "Returning from a trip, a heroic young paladin named Junyan comes across the village Ailu after demons invaded it. He meets Lili, who is pursued by the invading demons. As the plot surrounding Ailu deepens, Junyan becomes more aware of Lili's close relationship with the event. It is from this lost town, Junyan begins his adventure with Lili to find out what occurred in the village and to protect Lili. (This game's plot is visceral)."

Thanks! So many questions...

The plot of the game is highly toxic? The developer wrote that about their own game? Is it a selling point that the game adheres to gender stereotypes? Or is that a Chinese colloquialism that doesn't translate well into English?

Your right, valve probably doesn’t have or can’t afford the resources to translate the game

Wait, are you saying that Valve has anything to do with a random developer's localization?

That's a misunderstanding. It's typical for studios / publishers to do their own localization.

How many US games offer chinese / mandarin descriptions of their game? Yeah , english is a "global" language, understood by many , but china is like 2 billion people, why cant they ignore everyone else once in a while?
Your right, valve probably doesn’t have or can’t afford the resources to translate the game. Disappointed
If that “other” store had done this people would be having seizures.

Sorry, I must have missed the part where Valve sponsored this giveaway. See, it's one of the many useful features of the Steam client, that developers can set their own game to be freely available for a set time and users don't have to go through check-out to claim it. There are probably dozens of free games available at any time, all requiring no oversight or direct input from the store operators. Seems pretty random as to which ones end up being reported here.

Just giving the game away like this will probably allow someone who knows both languages to make subtitles in English.
The worst criminal in human history, undeniably. There has never been a figure in political history, so dedicated to destroying the prospects of organized human life on the planet, in the near future.
