Agony won't be getting the uncensored patch

It would've resulted in the game being banned.

It's no secret that Madmind Studio's Agony is a game that revels in its controversial imagery, whether it be brutal violence or sexual content, but the developers wanted to take it one step further with what they called an Adult Only patch for more uncensored horrors, although it turns out that won't happen.

The official Steam announcement says that, while PEGI and other rating companies accepted the game as it is, censoring only parts of some of the endings and extras unlocked after the game is finished, the Adult Only patch can't be released.

"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," the post reads.

"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."

The studio makes clear that they're happy with the game and that it's still the game they wanted it to be, unsurprising given the list of features they provided include genital physics, brutal sex scenes, children's heads exploding, and a whole lot more.

"We thought we'd end up in horror heaven, but it turns out that Agony is actually a one-way ticket to generic video game hell."
