I'm currently in the pre-production/concept phase of what will eventually be my first game.

Obviously the marketing/selling part of the process is far off, and I am not even certain how I will be distributing it if/when the game is completed... But...

The game will largely be dealing with very dark themes (plenty of which will be based/embellished from my own life experiences) several of which will undoubtedly offend, I imagine. 

Are there any "red flags" I should be aware of?  Steam's Greenlight regulations are disappointingly vague.

To be honest, there are so many different opinions on that topic that I don't think anything specific should be avoided. Some people believe something certain needs to be avoided, and if you ask someone else about it you will get the response "bullshit! that's totally cool in games! You should avoid that [=something else]". It's pretty vague among gamers what not to do, so I believe that that's the reaon why the greenlight regulations are that vague.

This question really needs a highlight.
So far I know that they pulled out "Seduce Me" from there, just because it had sex scenes.
