    Backers of the game Agony won't be getting their uncensored version after all, due to legal issues. The game has already been delayed in the past and it was given a definitive release date last month...

    "Hellish content" Do they have priests now working at PEGI? Explains a lot.

    Personally - just slap 21+ on this and everyone is happy. I am almost certain there will be mods very soon that will fix the "cut" content or simply patch it in.

    Other than that, will be testing it myself today - it works flawlessly 3440x1440 in 21:9, which is great.

    AO rating would mean the physical edition wouldn't be sold on certain stores, including XBox and Playstation I believe so the rating is available but it's also avoided by everyone unless it's PC exclusive and even then Steam don't like it either so unrated tends to be what certain indie games do although Outlast 2 was recently updated with it's uncensored content via a PC only update though they did not update the age rating I believe.
    (Some of the VN or "shock" games on Steam push certain content a lot farther than this and a few other titles do though but Valve is only now being a bit more active with checking what actually gets released.)

    From the forum posts they also toned down or changed in-game content even if they didn't have to outright cut more than whatever is going on in those two endings which a video comparison today should clarify.
    ("Oh nooo sex!")
    (Which is pretty much a requirement for the AO rating in the first place even if some publishers can back from having extreme violence or other subject matters even if it would still mostly be M rated though countries like Australia could see a ban on sales.)

    Downside of siding with a publisher perhaps even if it was Kickstarted originally, on the other hand they secured more funding and made console distribution easier and the game itself isn't different even if the content is slightly modified.
    But initial reviews also make frequent references to bugs, performance issues and crashes.
    (But that could be solvable with a patch or two within a few weeks or so.)

    Depending on type of censorship, it may take like 20 minutes to make shader patch. If there are just blurry boxes or zones, shader can be disabled...

    I was not interested in this game as it kind of looked boring. And those who wanted it for "LOL What? Genital Physics?" should get their game box which would have M/R/21+ whatever rating.
    Because suing studio for releasing uncensored game with appropriate rating would made no sense. It would be same as saying: "It is not even suitable for mentally stable adults." But then that would mean it is not suitable for very people who made it as they fall under "mentally stable adults" category.

    I have seen more hellish/brutal paintings and their authors are not burned, they are called artists.

    As for the content list, If we exclude sexual content, Painkiller had that easily over decade ago and impaling monsters was a lot of fun.

    Nobody asks you to play it, however, people that backed it from the start wish the get full experience.

    I can only assume that this will be way way worse than Senua's Sacrifice? (from a psychological point of view) :)

    They were just looking for free publicity and that's what they got, censorship is for the ignorant.

    Why can't they release an optional uncensored patch at a later time? There have been some games that I have played in which the devs released an optional uncensored patch. Unless there are legal issues with the uncensored content where they can't do that.

    Haha I don't suppose you remember the 90s and 00s? Many games were banned or censored in various countries for similar reasons, such as Doom and various games made by Rockstar. Magic the Gathering also had a lot of people trying to ban the game, due to there being demons and other various evils in the game. In MTG, you get to play as the "evil one", so I can understand how some would see that as promoting evil, but still... it's a card game...

    Agreed how have I missed this. I love gore and horror games as much as I love Horror/Gore Movies.

    Hard not to remember, however in most cases you could work around it by either simply taking a game from another region or getting a certain patch. Which is my guess what will happen with Agony.

    I know it's not the end of the world and I do feel for the developers (being forced to tailor the game for people threatening to sue them) what a wonderful time to be alive...

    Plus Nintendo of America has censored anything with a religious symbol in it such as calling the Cross weapon the boomerang in the North American version of Castlevania or the fire bomb for the holy water. Plus Wolfenstein 3d was banned in Germany for obvious reasons Nazi related material.
