The game will regularly launch on Valve’s digital distribution platform on Oct. 7, 2022, as originally planned.

Perhaps even more importantly, Valve itself sent a statement to the publisher, mentioning that the process that caused the rejection to begin with has been changed.

“Valve’s content review team, the group that made the original decision, has re-examined CHAOS;HEAD NOAH and decided to reverse course and allow the game to ship on Steam, as is. We’ve also examined the process that led to the previous decision about CHAOS;HEAD NOAH, and made some changes to avoid situations like this in the future.”

Spike Chunsoft also conveyed its own comment, thanking the fans for their unwavering support, which is identified as the cause behind Steam’s decision to reverse course.

“We believe this decision is the result of the unwavering support from fans of the Science Adventure Series as well as all of the players who are eagerly awaiting the release of this title. Your voices have been heard. We sincerely appreciate your commitment. We look forward to your continued support of Spike Chunsoft and the Science Adventure Series.”

At the moment, we don’t know whether this reversal will have far-reaching consequences for other games that have been on receiving end of Valve’s Content Review Team’s negative attention.

As usual, we’ll have to wait and see.

Chaos;Head Noah will also release on Nintendo Switch at the same time as the Steam release.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Science Adventure franchise, it includes series like Steins;GateChaos;Head Noah, Chaos;Child and Robotics;Notes. Basically, if it comes from Mages and has a semicolon in the middle of the title, it’s a Science Adventure visual novel.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
