I’m developing a game called Yandere Simulator.
In January of 2016, Twitch added my game to their list of prohibited games: help.twitch.tv/customer/portal/articles/1992676-list-of-prohibited-games
This was a newsworthy event, and numerous websites reported about it:
The Twitch community reacted with confusion, unsure why the game deserved to be banned: www.reddit.com/r/Twitch/comments/4230gv/so_yandere_simulator_is_now_banned_from_twitch/
I made a video about the subject, expressing my own confusion: www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_KPVLXf3B0 This video has been viewed 800,000 times.
Over the past 11 months, I have attempted to contact Twitch numerous times to ask why Yandere Simulator is banned. However, Twitch has never given me a response.
I’ve submitted report tickets - no replies.
I’ve e-mailed the support team and the dev success team - no responses.
I’ve messaged Twitch administrators - no help.
I would be more than happy to alter my game’s content to permit it to be streamed on Twitch, or produce a “Twitch Friendly” build of my game. But, first, someone at Twitch would need to speak with me and tell me what content needs to be removed or toned down.
I’ve noticed that the focus of this forum is primarily API-oriented, but if the objective of the Twitch Developer Success team is to help developers succeed, then surely this is a relevant topic for the forum.
Is there anyone on the Dev Success Team who can assist me?
Thank you for your time.
