Madmind Studios has decided to drop their plan to release an “uncensored” patch for the game to circumvent legal issues with horror game Agony. The company probably got called out by the group(s) reviewing the game about that approach and decided it wasn’t worth getting the game into hot water, even more so than it’s already going to be due to the content in the game.
The company decided to tone things down overall in order to negate the need for the patch completely. The revised release version of the game will slightly alter content in two of the seven endings for the game. Madmind also plan to release a YouTube video showcasing the differences between the new and old endings. Just for the sake of clarity, only a few seconds of each ending had to be altered to pass rating.
Seriously, here’s the list of the rating modifiers on the back of the box on Agony:
- Brutal Sex Scenes
- Lesbian and Gay Sex Scenes
- Genital Physics
- Eye Gouging
- Heart Plucking
- Children Heads Exploding
- Setting Fire to Martyrs and Demons
- Intense Violence
- Strong Language
Let’s just say that Agony will be one of those games that hits all the worst tropes in the most disgusting ways, by design.
Check out the completely NSFW gameplay trailer below. You can also see an equally disturbing story trailer for the game as well.
“Please bear in mind that leaving this content uncensored would result in the game being banned and us, Madmind Studio, being sued,” the message says. “That would simply lead to the studio being closed. Obviously, we don’t want this to happen and we hope that you understand it.”
Agony is set to launch on May 29, 2018, and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
