Toffer Team Denied Kickstarter Funds by Paypal

Toffer Team, who successfully funded their Lewd Idol Project (LIP) via Kickstarter in 2020, has been unable to access the remaining funds as Paypal has permanently locked them out of their account. According to their Twitter, the team has been barred from the popular payment platform, because they’ve used it to raise money related to “sexual services”.

Paypal’s stance against adult content has been widely known throughout the adult gaming industry, but high-profile lockouts like these are still a rare occurrence. It’s still unclear whether Toffer Team will be able to claim the funds held up in their inactive Patreon account. Niche Gamer has some more details on the aftermath of the Paypal ban in their interview with the head of Toffer Team.

In the meantime gamers looking to support Toffer Team and Lewd Idol Project can do so by buying the first volume of the episodic game on Steam or itch.io.

The official statement as put out by Toffer Team:

Perverteer

I create adult visual novels, with the help of a couple of awesome volunteers who test and proofread my work. My projects include Sisterly Lust (completed) and Tales From The Unending Void (in development). Both are available for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android.

Man, this really fucking sucks to hear. I hope at some point they can get their funds released. It’s so unfortunate how these payment processors all have the same puritan mindset when it comes to adult content.

They won’t. PayPal will steal it like always.
