Tentacle Bento raised more than $30,000 in half the time set aside for a $13,000 request total. The project was set up by Soda Pop, the copany behind Super Dungeon Explore and Relic Knights.
The concern? Kickstarter hasn’t said publicly but the implication is the funding site wasn’t happy with a game based around hentai tentacle action. Soda Pop haven’t addressed the issue head on either but in a Facebook post they say;
“To all our friends and new supporters from Kickstarter, and those who wanted to Tentacle Bento come to fruition, we are working on a solution to get us back on track to funding right away. Thank you soooo much for your support, we got a lot of love from you guys through all this, and we will be up and running in no time! HUZZAH!”
The Kickstarter video, which is still up at the time of posting, simply talks about capturing girls – but the implication is pretty clear; it’s the full hentai scenario.
The artwork supplied for the Kickstarter underlines the hentai theme. It’s sexy stuff.
So, did Kickstarter do the right thing? Is this a good call along the lines of human decency?
