Agony censoring extreme content; beyond “Adults Only” rating

Agony is a game developed by Madmind Studios and has been heavily censored due to the controversial nature of its content.

It’s so bad that the dev team no longer allowed it to be planned as an Adult Only game due to legality. They announced that it would be banned and they’d be sued if they kept it the way it was. However, they were able to get some content approved by PEGI and similar rating organizations.

Agony was originally a failed Kickstarter campaign that didn’t get the funds needed to complete the game. It has you avoid monsters in an evil place and you need to escape it by following a goddess. It’s a horror first-person survival game released on Steam, Xbox One, and PS4 on May 29th.

Now, only a few seconds from two out of seven endings will be censored with some other unlockable scenes. The following will still be included in Agony:

  • Gore
  • 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
  • Drugs

But the rest will be cut out.

They released a comparison video on May 30th, which showcases the differences of what got removed from the original version.
