Patreon tries to clean itself up

Patreon is suddenly, and belatedly, attempting to clean up its Factory of Filth, which would require Hercules to muck out the massive quantities of bestiality, rape, incest, and other perversions that are widely available on the platform:

Indie game creator Redamz, best known as the creator and sole developer of the upcoming adult-oriented adventure game Monster Girl Island, has announced that he will be leaving Patreon after the platform requested that he “make changes to the game” in order to continuing using their services.

In development since roughly 2015, Monster Girl Island finds players washing ashore on the sands of a mysterious island filled with monsters such as “dragons, slimes, giant bugs, centaurs and more,” who “are all… Oddly attractive!?”

Unsurprisingly, given the game’s subject matter and “oddly attractive” cast, Monster Girl Island has been marked as “Adult Only”, as a Mature Content Description on the aforementioned Steam page notes that the title features “full body nudity and detailed depictions of various sexual acts, ranging from vanilla to light sadomasochism, including watersports.”

Though the game has been featured on Patreon since it began development, with Redamz all the while openly and proudly wearing the game’s Adult label, it now appears that a recent attempt by the platform to elicit changes within Monster Girl Island has led the indie game developer to end this nearly six-year business relationship.

On April 28th, Redamz took to the game’s Patreon to post one final update, simply titled “Leaving Patreon”, to his supporters, notifying them of his decision and explaining that he had chosen to leave the platform.

He stated, “While I had avoided all of their previous witch hunts, it seems they finally don’t like MGI anymore. They’ve requested me to make changes to the game (stupid things like making ara and faranne not adoptive sisters if they are to share a scene), which if you all know me, you will know I’ll never do,” wrote Redamz.

About one-quarter of Patreon's creators have been openly and egregiously violating the fake "zero tolerance" policy that Patreon has been falsely advertising since 2017, when VISA and Mastercard threatened to shut them down. Patreon played the payment processors by making a big deal of deplatforming the porn stars and cam girls, but didn't touch the much more lucrative porn-game developers, some of whom are pulling in nearly $100k/month.

Anyhow, this belated attempt to get the porn devs to remove the incest and other "zero tolerance" elements that have been tolerated for years - that's what Redamz is referring to - isn't going to do Patreon any good once the facts are put on the public record. Because while Patreon may define pornography as only applying to real humans, that's not how the Federal government or the payment processors define it anymore.

I'm surprised at how many different titles there are with same premise. But I guess this is what filled the Leisure Suit Larry void.

Sad that the only better explanation for all that money is a kind of money laundering operation.

I still find it hard to understand degenerates' massive pride in their degeneracy. It's not like it's all that difficult a task, actually being the lowest common denominator. How much effort does that take?

Yep, THIS is witch hunt, scumbag. Just further proof of Vox's point "free speech" is only about being the most venal and vile creature possible, not about any actual moral stance.

"I checked out that graphtreon link and my jaw dropped. You can just keep scrolling, I had no idea so many patreons were raking in literally thousands per month (many are taking in TENS of thousands) just to make weird porn."

One of the things the right has broadly failed to understand is that video games are the future of almost every form of entertainment, perverse or not. The lack of right-wing inroads in video games is going to be a major cultural issue within ten years.

Also, crowdfunding. It's absurdly easy to make large sums of money out of lots of small sums. There are 350,000,000 people in the USA alone. If you can get one out of every ten thousand people to give you $1, well... You do the math.

Before I was saved by Christ I was sunk deep, deep, into porn addiction. I will never forget when I realized how many filth producers, channels, and avatars had demonic and anti-Christian names. Also amazing to me is that I neither realized that fact nor would have cared about it before I became a Christian. The old serpent isn't even trying to be subtle anymore - not a good sign for the future of our little Sodom.

Right?

And, more, I don't really want to know what I just learned. The problem is, if we don't know, how can we change it. I would guess the only reason it is being pushed out is that enough people know, and passed it along. Not everyone was enjoying, or in on it somehow. But, me knowing? Doesn't matter.

My major issue, however, is... if it isn't beyond a certain pale, it isn't the business of debtors or the government to shut down. This? I don't know. Incest? Definitely pedophilia? The thing is, I don't want them going after what they simply don't like, or they will go after guns, or straight relationships/marriage (more than they do).

Lines. But those lines need to be clearly defined, and based on the constitution, not some big business or government 'right think' notions.

Tangentially related, but I always thought Steam had a higher standard and didn't allow this on its platform, and unlike Patreon, they actually enforced it?

'Just further proof of Vox's point "free speech" is only about being the most venal and vile creature possible, not about any actual moral stance."

Problem is, the main points made by non-progs are now routinely labeled "venal and vile" by the cancellers. That's all it takes - so long as you can cancel "venal and vile" whenever you choose, you just need to influence the definitions of those terms. Ask Zuckerberg - we're the new disgusting porn.

My eyes were disgustingly opened some years ago when I was trying to find an online clip of an 80's TV commercial to use in a PowerPoint presentation and searched the term "where's the beef". I don't recommend it.

That's a big chunk of change. Wall Street generally stays away from XXX rated, so Patreon is trying to bleach its image for that IPO. It would be a real shame if the past followed them around.

"...whoever suffers in the body is done with sin.... For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do - living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry.... The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins." (1 Peter 4:1-8)

I was reading this passage earlier. Seems edifying to share.

This is a generation-long battle with the supreme court well known in weeb circles.

The consensus among reputable places is steer clear because you never know whether the supreme court or congress happen to be winning the tug-of-war that particular year.

Get out a King James bible, and read Roman's chapter one. It describes the descent a person takes on their way to becoming a reprobate. They rejected Jesus Christ too many times, and are given over to the vile lusts of their own heart. They take pleasure in unrighteousness. God commanded us to put these people to death because they can never believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved. They are past the point of no return, just like the sodomites.

@11 "But those lines need to be clearly defined, and based on the constitution, not some big business or government 'right think' notions."

The Constitution does NOT outlaw porn and incest or child rape or adrenachrome harvesting by torture and murder. So NOW how does your. "I trust my fellow Man, even IF not Christian" work out?

Vox has pointed out that science has become very corrupt because the "scientists" and their owners and masters no longer HAVE any attachment to the good, true, and beautiful. Most especially the TRUE and the good...

The churchians of whatever flavor no longer HOLD to Christian principles at all (Catholic hierarchy allowing "Catholics who support abortion" to exist within the church? Fighting AGAINST those who would deny Pe-lousy and Zhou Bi-den to approach the wafer-and-wine?

The Constitution is a NECESSARY basis for fighting our enemies because it is still hard, but no longer impossible, for them them to just openly chuck it... but sufficient? The Constitution as a singular basis for trying to clean up this country and our nation? Nope.

Founding Father John Adams: "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

WHY, do you think, are (((they))) working so very very hard to REPLACE what's left of the moral and religious people?!

Video games, as an industry, are larger than Hollywood, financially speaking.

Video game companies have locations kind of all over. A lot are in Austin. The Austin Chronicle has at least one issue on dealing with depression during Corona. One of the articles suggested buying items at a shop that specialized in hand-crafted fantasy and monster devices, sold to women. They reviews were that people had a hard time buying them because they would sell out within three minutes of being posted online for sale.

Austin is 85% unchurched, if you want to see what a non-churched future looks like. There are lots of smaller cults perking along, some for decades. I voted against Hillary because she's been part of blowing up the Branch Davidians in Waco. They had been living in peace with their fundamentalist Baptist neighbors for half a century. I didn't want Hillary coming to town and blowing up my neighbors, whatever the names of their groups were.

If Austin is what the shiny, secular utopia is supposed to look like- then Christian men need to up their game- literally, not figuratively.

And if incest is legal in the locality for actual humans, then is it the business of government to shut down fictional representations of such? Does anything change if their fictional representations strongly resemble particular living subjects?

This is a silly concern in this context, though, considering the business is literally in the business of handling the funding of the project, and their existing rules forbid this sort of content. They have just been suspending enforcement those rules for various reasons, while representing to third parties that those rules show how savory their enterprise is.

This was one of the earlier Calexits. Gaming companies started leaving California for Austin en masse in the 90s. There was already a bit of a base there - Richard Gariott stood up his company there in the 80s. But Texas and Austin especially were definitely beneficiaries of California's bad policies.
