Ancient-Red-Dragon: Thanks for the info. That's horrible news. GOG should be selling only uncensored products, and at the very least, they should mark all censored products on the GOG store pages as being censored.

Is your link always kept up to date as to which games are censored on GOG and which games are not?

Which of the new games that came out today on GOG are censored, and which are not?

RedRagan: This is probably the publisher's decision. They want more buyer from all age so they sell the clean version. At least they have free patches to add the R18 back in.
Somehow I don't think so. I doubt the audience who's interested in VN's, including the ones that have 18+ content, but not interested in that 18+ content is very large. Rather, it's that Steam and GOG don't allow that content, but getting your game on their storefronts nets you more sales due to the exposure. Virtually everyone who comments on the tpic wishes they would sell the 18+ and call it day. I know some games let you turn it off via in game settings, so a "pure" crowd could still buy/play them.

Yeah, I believe this is it. The JP publishers will ask the localizers to distribute on Steam. Valve keeps changing the rules for adult content on Steam because in their adult-only versions, they're always at risk of being banned. So the all ages versions are made to comply with these rules so they have to worry about revenue losses after release.

Sure, there might be some people out there who enjoy all ages version of the adult games, especially if the story is very engaging and complex or if the gameplay is really good. But I can't imagine it's a huge number. This isn't the most representative dataset (2014, n=1258, VN creator bias), but if this is extrapolated to the entire VN player population and assuming people < 18 play the all ages version, then only ~20% play the all-ages version. In actuality, it could be skewed because 60% of all players are women.
There is no reason why GOG can't offer both versions of all it's censored VNs.

Then the people who want a censored version can play that censored version.

And the people who don't want a censored version can play the uncensored version.

I speculate it's for CYOA liability reasons. If GOG sells some uncensored version of a VN with very subjective interpretations of pornographic law infractions, it could be problematic if their customers buy it when it's banned in their countries. Who knows if defendants won't just pass the buck and the liability somehow ends up on GOG's lap. I'd imagine it's just easier for them to avoid all legal risks altogether by selling the all-ages version.

If regulations / liability risk isn't an issue AND the localizer has permission from the publisher to sell either the patch DLC / uncensored versions here, then it'd indeed be GOG's policy for not allowing those patches and versions here. If that's the case, I agree with you. There's no reason why they shouldn't provide the DLC patch or uncensored versions here. Especially with all these age-verification webpages on their store pages already for legal compliance.

Guys, seriously. Just buy the damn game from Denpa at this point. It's $26 with a $9 DLC.

So that makes it exactly $35 which is the same as Denpa. Both have no DRM by default. Most adult games do not have DRM off steam.

DreamedArtist: Will we be able to patch these games with the 18+ patches on the web?
Yes we can! It seems the GOG version of Amairo Chocolate and The Witch's Love Diary is compatible with the 18+ patches that is downloadable on denpasoft!

I already tried installing the aforementioned VNs on my PC and applied the 18+ patches then you'll be able to see the naughty parts of the game as you progress with the story! I won't be able to post any screenshots since I might violate forum rules or something...

However I haven't tested or tried The Ditzy Demons Are in Love With Me since you need to purchase the 18+ patches as a DLC on the denpasoft store unlike the other two which are free which should always be the case for all ages VNs!

If someone is generous enough to provide the adult patch for The Ditzy Demons Are in Love With Me
I'll be more than happy to test it out!

I bought the DLC for Ditzy Demons and applied the patch (just copying two files that total 1.7GB to the game directory), and it does work.

Yes.
But here is the strange thing if people want to buy the adult dlc on denpasoft and they don't offer the same payments methods like gog then people either have to get a credit card.
People can buy on gog here with paysafecards like i am used to but can't pay on denpasoft since it doesn't offer paysafecard as payment locking out the adult stuff for users who still couldn't get a credit card.
And until i get a new pc i won't be using any credit cards in this system.
Can't really get these VN until getting new pc.
But i pretty much think paysafecards don't allow buying adult stuff on sites.
Also don't think they have a gifting method there to trade of equal value between denpasoft and gog.
