Agony Team Shares PC Patch To Remove Censorship, Very NSFW!
The game that literally puts players through Hell definitely had a long, hard road to launch. Agony had to make a few major compromises to their vision due to censorship, otherwise the entire project would have seen cancellation. Because of this, many scenes were altered and cut entirely, but the team over at PlayWay want their total vision to be realised. So they’ve come up with a plan. And plan brings back every NSFW moment to the game, and then some!
The developers took to the Steam page to share how they are removing all censorship from the game. Unfortunately, this will only apply to the PC version for legal (and technical) reasons, but man is it a game changer. Before we begin with what’s being brought back, the devs did make one thing very clear:
None of the scenes you have seen in the trailers and other promotional materials have been censored at all, and the game will feature those on all platforms.”
That being said, this was their official statement on the changes and how they are bringing the game back to its original vision:
“After many consultations and hard work full of trials and errors, we have two pieces of news for you. Firstly, we have managed to include a lot of things that we originally wanted to provide in the patch in the final game. It has been accepted by PEGI and other rating companies. The censorship now affects only several seconds from two endings (out of seven) and some scenes that may be unlocked only after the end of the game. We will be able to show them to you in a video that we are planning to release soon.”
- 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
“Secondly, due to legal issues, we are not going to be able to release the Adult Only patch. However, that content does not affect the game in any significant way because the deleted material that was supposed to be added in the latest version of the patch is from two endings (out of seven) and some scenes that may be unlocked only after the end of the game. We are going to publish a comparison video on May 30th, 2018 so you will not miss out anything.
Please bear in mind that leaving this content uncensored would result in the game being banned and us, Madmind Studio, being sued. 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 still the game we have planned all along and we are very proud of what we have achieved.”
Many were upset when they found out that the game had been censored, wondering if the final product would live up to the previously revealed hype. Luckily, as mentioned, none of the promotional material had been doctored and for those playing on PC – the full experience will be made available at no additional charge!
