Nice interview!
I really liked the answer for dealing with censorship and cancel culture. Developers should focus on how to stay strong and handle the potential emotional harm that can happen if targeted. Good advice in there~

Thanks you =) Yes, I can only agree with you. So let's hope that more game devs and publishers will do the same in the future.

I sure hope so, because the censorship is already bad as hell when it comes to lewd content...

TGG_overlord5d ago

I'm really glad to hear that you enjoyed the interview ;) More is in the making!

TGG_overlord5d ago

I forgot to ask, is there any dev or publisher that you (or anyone else for that matter) would like me/us to interview?

@Simon_the_sorcerer "I sure hope so, because the censorship is already bad as hell when it comes to lewd content..."

- Well, just look at Sony...So it would be a real nightmare for fans of lewd content if other platforms follow down the same path as Sony has on that front.

If this were a game with hunky bearded guys, we'd get comments on how an agenda's being pushed or something along the lines of "Stop shoving this crap in everyone's faces!".

But since it's just anime chicks with big tiddies and 7 year old anime girl faces, it's totally okay. >_>

TGG_overlord5d ago

There's already games like that on the market. So I don't get your point. Furthermore, don't like it? Don't watch, read or play the said games.

What are you talking about? There are already tons of games with muscular god men and I haven't seen anybody react the way you describe.

TGG_overlord5d ago

I know right? So I take it that the said person have no idea (whatsoever) what he or she is talking about...

I played and finished one of the Sakura games on 3DS. Will probably never play another one again. The game is just so one dimensional with it being all about school girls with big breasts. Anime folks obviously like this garbage.

TGG_overlord5d ago

You must be thinking of "Senran Kagura"? Because I don't recall Winged Cloud releasing any of their games for the 3DS? And you picked up the game based on what notion actually? This is like I would pick up "Doom Eternal" and start whining about violence and metal music.

The game gives the fans what it wants, but if you're not into that, then it's not for you.

Ah yeah that was it. Senran Kagura Burst. I was craving a hack n slash at the time and there was controversy maybe at the time about it being released on a nintendo console so I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

Yeah anime style aint for me. Nor the whole over endowment features of teenagers. I get that it has its place in the market but theres nothing wrong with being critical of these games for their creepy purvy anime element.

On N4G there is this weird stigma where people think criticism equals censorship when the two are not the same.
