As some of you may know my Patreon page is suspended since the last December. I was told by Patreon that some of the preview pictures have violated their rules even they can only be viewed by Patrons. As I found it is not going to charge Patrons when the page is suspended, I think this maybe a good time for me to finally take a break as I have been developing and releasing updates for the the past few years. I am sorry that I didn't inform any of you at that time because I want to stay away from the development completely and I haven't planned when to return. It is actually a rather rough decision in that situation.
During the time, I have played quite a lot of Hentai game again as I have almost stopped playing them since I started creating my games. I have been searching for games on DLSite and found a new site named Ci-en which is similar to Patreon in the last month. As I have listed my games on DLSite, I have setup the page and connected my creator account to Ci-en successfully and below is the page:
My Ci-en page : https://ci-en.dlsite.com/creator/6593
This site is created by the same company who run DLSite and it is similar to Patreon which is also a creator support platform. It is mainly in Japanese but has English translation so I can understand it just fine mostly. There was a DLSite Blog(probably less known) for creators but got replaced by this site now.
After discovering this site, I think this maybe the time for me to continue to work on my games as I can promote them and the development without worrying about violating rules as all my previous games are listed on DLSite with no problem and also, I have been away from the development for like half year. However, I am actually not sure what to really do as I still have Patrons on Patreon. So, I would like to unsuspend my Patreon account first to decide what to do next. After removing all preview pictures on my Patreon page, I contacted them for review and I thought I can unsuspend it just like before. However, they have actually asked me about the content of my games this time and wanted detailed answer...So, I believe I can no longer use Patreon to promote and receive support as my games should have violated most of their rules. I knew they are trying to 'clean' their site at some point but didn't expect they would even want to know and censor the content of the actual games.
In conclusion, I would like to announce I am leaving Patreon now because I won't be able to unsuspend my page and is moving on to Ci-en. And I believe I am heading to the right direction as I think my games are more suited on Ci-en because it can accept more extreme themes like rape, shota, beastialty...etc, just like DLSite.
It would be truly helpful if you don't mind to create an account(or existing DLSite JP account) and follow me there as it is free. I am going to post update information including preview pictures to the public on Ci-en. And if you would like to support me, you can choose one of the 3 options. However, there will be no update currently as I found it is going to slow the development down and exhaust me which hurts the games eventually. I don't expect I would receive as much support as before but only hope it can helps a bit on maintaining and motivating the development.
As Reporter Kate is also released on DLSite too now, I am going to continue to work on Survivor Sarah 2 Chapter 2 and try to complete it this time. As you know, it is the biggest stuck of the whole development and I have worked on this game for years. So, if I am able to finish this, I believe things will be different. And latest release will be a reward on Ci-en and I would like to start it with Survivor Sarah 2 Chapter 2 when it is completed.
Sorry for the long read but it is the summary of whats going on about the development since the suspend of my Patreon page.
Thanks for reading!
