Thank you very much for doing so.

Especially you are to be thanked for clearly delineating facts about the
game's content, versus your subjective reaction to it.

Based on your description and experience of the game, I would agree

* I don't know of a policy nor legal reason to summarily reject this
  work from Debian.

* The “possession and/or distribution of images of child abuse” may be a
  legal barrier. But as you point out, that issue is not crucial for the
  more general complaint against this work's content.

* For the sociological reasons you explain, I would not want to see this
  work propagated further. I hope it does not enter Debian nor its
  servers, and I do not want the Debian project to contribute to its spread.

Yes, the screen shots look to be good-quality game illustrations. More
like that, please!
