And what is the reason for that? The game is pretty harmless so I doubt this is because of censorship.

Just the ending of the contract with the publisher, nothing new in VN market. Same thing happened with Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception and Mask of Truth last year - while you still can buy them on PC because all games from the trilogy ported by Shiravune, on PS4 you can buy only Prelude to The Fallen - which published by NISA instead of Atlus.

Almost certainly not censorship since the game has been out for over 5 years (with the exception of Android) and if there was a controversy significant enough to convince 3 separate content platforms to independently decide to remove the game it we would have heard about it. As mentioned in a previous post contractual issues make far more sense here.

Kinda moot if your computer can't run certain games.
