Madmind Studios reveals Agony's PC system requirements

The PC version of Agony has an "optional patch" to remove the game's "censorship"

Madman Studios' hellish horror game Agony was initially intended to release on PC, Xbox One and PS4 on March 30th, though several factors forced the game to be delayed on all platforms. 

A factor in this decision was due to the game's use of torture, violence and nudity, all of which gave the game an "Adults Only" (AO) rating, which would prevent the game from being released on PS4 and Xbox One. After several discussions with game ratings companies, Madman has decided to tone down certain aspects of the game to get a Mature (M) rating, which will facilitate a console release. This change will allow Madman to keep their Kickstarter promises and release the game on PC, Xbox One and PS4. 

PC, being a less restricted platform, has provided Madman with the opportunity to release a "special, optional patch" for the game's Steam version, which will remove the game's "censorship", giving PC gamers an unrestricted gaming experience. The standard version of the PC game will be the same as Agony's console versions, though no un-censoring patches will be available for Agony's console versions.  

Agony is a survival horror game set in hell, where players take the role of a tormented soul without any memories of their past. Gamers will have the ability to control the minds of people/creatures within the world, giving them the means to survive and hopefully escape.

Good stuff! So we're seeing a return of the bloodpatches. Let's just hope, they're not going to make it available through Steam itself, or I as a German, will most likely get to see the infamous "This product is not available in your country." notification...Quote

Why? If they don't have such things in place, where will it stop?

They have the same censorship in place for Movies. Of course blood and gore adds to the realism and shock factor, but you can't let gaming/movie industry off the leesh with doing what they want. There does need to be limits.

The real issue I see is that such limitations differ greatly from country to country.Quote

Another issue is that movies and games are rated differently although both are (arguably) just art. We'll never know why the Deadpool movie got a 16+ rating in Germany, but every shooter, no matter the amount of blood and gore gets an 18+ rating.

//EDIT: Not sure if there should be limits, honestly. Have you played the old God of War games? They could've well been beyond those limits.Quote

The one thing I can not handle watching is torture and like, cruel horror. It just makes me feel sick.

I'd hazard a guess and say they deliberately made it very strong knowing it would sell copies if they released an uncensored version.

Definitely not my bag at all though.Quote
