If the new law that the bigwigs have comes up with passes, next to all Visual Novels containing sex will be banned. This, coupled with the fact that this charming police state would like to monitor everyone's history, would mean that it would be impossible to download a H-version of Katawa Shoujo, even if it did have the option of turning off the H-scenes, in fear of being added to the sexual offenders register for having 'child pornography' on your computer.
Knowing our godforsaken government, this law will no doubt be passed. So, unless they release it before the law is decided, there'll be no Katawa Shoujo for me, or anyone from Britain.
There are other countries as well, where such stupid laws have been passed.
In Germany the depiction of pornography is now forbidden, if the persons involved LOOK like they could be under 18, this goes for real photos as well as for drawn pictures. (Fuck you Ursula, go back to your seven children!)
As far as I know, the porn industry is taking that law to court, but I haven't heard anything new yet.
We're not on the same level of surveillance as poor Great Britain, but still, downloading this game with explicit H-scenes would be illegal here, too.
PS: However if the scenes would refrain from explicitely showing genitals, and I hope they will because it would totally ruin the feel of the game, it could be okay...
...so that's why I'm trying to figure out if there is something I need to figure out and then figure that out before it's too late and all hope is lost.
Isn't a realist just the word for what the cynic calls himself?
