Question?

Question:

I'm confused. I thought kickstarter didn't allow explicit sexual content?

Answer:

I'll definitely answer that question. I am developing a second version of the game to be released at a later time. The main game is rated 16+ for mature themes, as it discusses a futanari(lit. Hermaphrodite) species of elves with a gender that is hermaphroditic as a theme of the game, and as a realistic gender in a fantasy world like many species currently on earth ("fiore" means flower, and the inspiration for this is that flowers are one of the few species that can be natural "perfect" hermaphrodites). It is not inherently fetishistic but a way to prove that is not only fetishistic, and one can write a story that can stand on it's own, or merge these erotic themes without compromising the story.

Just like one can make porn of any show out there, I am taking a erotic theme and doing the exact opposite, telling it in a non-pornographic way. This game includes the "fiore" theme, as one of believable conflict within the story using the elvish culture I've created. These "fiore" elves are as normal to these elves as males and females to us. That is there gender dichotomy.

None of the funding is being used to complete any mature content, nor has any mature content actually been developed yet, and in fact could not be developed at all. The money for art used in the funding is either going to go to commissioning others for video or animation assistance, elements of graphics design for the game or a website about the game, or to pay me for the art that I have already done for the game. All of which is hundreds of hours (thousands of dollars) of unpaid time. The rest of the art I am making for the game is a cost I am absorbing entirely by myself. Which I will only be paid back by profit from the sale of the game. 

Thus if I was to produce a mature version, it would be realistic to the story, believable and be focused on the romance like any R-rated film that has a sex scene in it, that is supposed to be emotionally moving and not "porn for the sake of porn". If it's made, it will be made separately than any of the Kickstarter funding, and goals, sold separately from the Kickstarter page. So that none of the content of my Kickstarter breaks Kickstarter's "Pornography" rule. However I can cite many dozen projects that have had racy, erotic, and pornographic material in them that have succeeded.

I however am playing completely within the guidelines of Kickstarter by producing a game that is provocative and controversially so, but remaining within US law and Kickstarter's guidelines.

      In the event that I do make the mature version, it will be after the Kickstarter, and self-funded separate from this..

      However if people show me proof that they have gotten a game copy of any kind, purchased after the Kickstarter or through pledge, and they would like to see that version, I will give them a free copy of it.

      So if you end up making a more mature version we'd have to buy again to get it?

      I think if there's an interest for that I will look into it. I have to evaluate how much voice acting I need in the final version, and price that out for a proper stretch goal.

      It might cost a big chunk though.

      Any chance for a voice acting stretch goal?
