This was due to personal reasons at the time as Hunter was going through a "major" break-up with a girl.

In 2020, the game was removed from the digital distribution service Steam due to featuring "photos or videos of human actors." with a public notice stating that it was removed by the publisher which was untrue. Despite Valve allowing adult video games onto the service as of June of 2018, this apparently doesn't mean the inclusion of actual footage of real-actors in adult-oriented titles, though no mention of this is stated anywhere in the Steamworks Documentation.
