Recently, developer Tianzhou and publisher OKJOY formally announced that their otome game, Bacchanalia, has been delisted from the Steam platform following several company management issues and other uncontrollable factors. Said issues have led to the disbanding of the development team.
Furthermore, the developer has also begun a refund program for all players who have purchased the title, even if their playtime exceeds Steam’s refund window of 2 hours. Those who have their playtime below 2 hours can directly refund to their Steam balance, and those who have exceeded can send a support e-mail and obtain a refund through PayPal. Right now, the game has been wholly delisted from Steam, though if you still have it in your library, you can still download it like any retired game on Steam.
