Quick question,

a bit off topic my apologies, but I was wondering if you guys knew if xstoryplayer and all stories are legal in the US? (i.e., does the game contain any content that could be considered illegal).

thanks in advance!

In reality anything obscene is considered illegal in the US but what exactly is obscene is not defined by the federal or state governments. Pretty much anything pornographic can be ruled as obscene. All it takes is for it to be brought to court and the jury to find it offensive. Fortunately this doesn't happen very often today, but it used to happen a lot. It does still happen on rare o-c-c-a-s-i-o-n-s (it would not let me post that word for some reason) today though.

Owning obscene material is not illegal so long as it's not material that's outright illegal. What is illegal is transporting the material for sale or broadcasting the material (in public or over the airways). I may be mistaken but I don't believe X Moon is located in the US so they don't have anything to worry about (and likely wouldn't even if they were). Since there isn't explicitly illegal material in the game owning it isn't illegal in the US either. Basically, you can buy the game and play it as much as you want so long as you don't try to sell or broadcast it. lol

Should probably exercise some caution in your selection of mods, though...if only for your own sake. :)

A few responses regarding the latest comments on this thread.

I also wish we would have been able to grow into a larger company.
This in order to meet with the higher demands and expectations of our users.
But regrettably no backing by a large studio, venture capitalists or anything else that would make this possible.
N.b. Anyone who is or knows a VC wanting to expand his portfolio to include erotic gaming, feel free to contact us :) .

As it currently stands, I am working full time on this project and my friends in part time.
The sales of XStoryPlayer are enough for an average salary and paying the bills (feel free to derive the sales from this ;) ).
N.b.: I am not saying this to generate any sympathy, it is simply how things are.

Because developing software is a slow process, Patreon is not used by us.
We think it is fair that people pay for something that is a finished product. A "what you see is what you get" kind of approach.
Also it allows us to take the time we feel is needed for development without the outside pressure.

Even though some of the comments regarding XStoryPlayer can be considered somewhat negative (especially regarding the speed of development),
I also see them as a compliment because it means that people take XStoryPlayer very much to heart.
The new version 4.0 will regrettably not be around for some time, so I have to disappoint people anticipating anything soon.

I like to thanks everyone for their support, and a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all !!! :) :) :)

Merry Christmas to you! And thank you for the heads up. This game is very dear to many fans of adult games because it extends the boundaries of what most adult developers consider necessary to include in their games. If this is a success, I can see other developers moving in a similar direction. On a side note... why not recruit members of the online game dev community to assist with working on your game? I personally have a background with 3D modeling, character animation and ringing in Maya. While my online portfolio does not have anything of an adult nature, I understand the fundamentals of character rigging and animating. Recruit for this project as i'm sure you will get some talented people that are interested. I go to school with some extremely talented programmers that would be interested in this project if they knew about it. Obviously if you have already tried to recruit for the project or just have no desire to bring people into the fold, I understand and simply disregard what i'm saying, but the community is vast and even though many people would not openly admit it, just about every adult likes adult games. I would honestly say that I would work on tasks for this project pro-bono just to see it get completed.

XPAdmin, I don't think getting money from a venture capitalist will be any better than Patreon in regards of long development times (read: usually they want their ROI asap and there will be pressure, too)

I do believe you would get more sales for the current version if you would do something for your google ranking, like putting more descriptive text on the website (although I think your website design is pretty good) A more search term related website name would also help, even if it's just a DNS forwarder.
Try to get on all those VR sex game lists that usually show up as first results.
Having Facebook and G+ pages would probably help, even though it wouldn't work for me.

I still think normal people won't find this game even with pretty specific google queries. I'm pretty sure most other people here also just discovered it by accident (?)
Like, I'm pretty sure I went through multiple pages of google results for "VR sex game" or "oculus xxx game" and the like, and xmoon wouldn't show up.

That all said, I like how you devote your time to this and set a long term goal, and people should appreciate that more and bitch less :)

Relaxing holidays to everybody
