Chinese gamers learned to watch online porn through Steam

An unusual use for the brainchild of Gabe Newell was found by the inhabitants of the Middle Kingdom, deprived of the opportunity to watch pornography.

China has a tough fight against porn sites, and finding any source of “strawberries” inside the country is almost impossible. It is even more difficult to get to Western resources, access to which is burned out by the almighty Chinese firewall. But not everything is so bad, the largest playground in the world is in a hurry to help the Chinese perverts, to which, albeit with grief in half, access is still maintained in China.

Bypassing the ban is carried out through the Wallpaper Engine program – lovers of decorating their Windows are well aware of this utility that allows you to install live wallpapers on your desktop. The wallpaper library contains millions of videos and GIFs in various genres: nature, cars, anime, flowers, abstract, etc. Recently, the developers allowed uploading wallpapers with the tag “mature” to the workshop.

Wallpaper Engine is currently at the top of Steam, and the lion’s share of service users is in China. They are actively uploading and downloading porn videos, disguising them with some decent preview picture. Of the one and a half million wallpapers, pornography already accounts for almost 150,000 (10%), and this number is only increasing. The Chinese themselves are very pleased with the opportunity to watch porn and leave only positive reviews.


If the developers of Wallpaper Engine do not prohibit the addition of “adult” content, then Steam will soon begin to be blocked not only in China.
