After being threatened with possible closure and legal action being taken against them, Madmind Studio, the team behind Agony has revealed that they may be able to release an uncensored version of the game.
Shortly before the release of their Kickstarter success, developer Madmind Studio had revealed their plans for a patch for the PC version of the game, which would see their censored content become an optional download for the game. Unfortunately for fans having awaited the release of the game and its truest form.
However, it seemed that not everyone was happy with this idea, having been threatened with the possibility of lawsuits and the eventual closure of their studio. But as of today, it seems that Madmind Studio may have found a way around the censorship of their game and even more-so, a way to re-release the game in its truest form for fans to enjoy – a new version of the game, produced and published by Madmind Studio themselves.
The new name? Agony Unrated. It will feature additional content and changes suggested by the community of fans that have played or still play the game. The company has also revealed that they are currently working with Valve to see if they can make this happen and how they can make this idea a reality. The best part of it all? Their goal to ensure that anyone who already owns Agony to get a game at a 99% discount or release the Agony Unrated as a free DLC. You can read the full statement from Madmind Studio down below, which includes new features for the game.
It is with a great pleasure that we want to inform you we have found a way to publish the unrated version of Agony!
Agony Unrated will be a separate title produced and published by Madmind Studio and without the involvement of any publishers. It features additional content and changes suggested by you – our community – as nothing is more valuable to us than you.
We are doing our best to offer Agony Unrated to as many people as possible. Our goal is for each person that already owns Agony on Steam to be able to buy Agony Unrated with the biggest discount possible on that platform – 99% – or release it as a free DLC. We are currently talking with the Steam representatives to make sure it is doable.
Agony Unrated will be released about three months from now and it will include all the updates from the standard version of the game.
Agony Unrated also brings:
· Additional sounds in the game and the cutscenes.
· Additional erotic animations for characters in the backgrounds.
· High-resolution textures and models – without any censorship.
· All the scenes that have been removed from the standard version of Agony.
· Agony Mode unlocked from the beginning.
· Additional content for Agony Mode (Setting – The Forest, Boss Fight – Baphomet).
· Succubus Mode unlocked from the beginning.
· Additional animations for Succubus Mode.
Additionally, we would like to take this opportunity to apologize for all the technical problems that were present at the launch of Agony.
The whole team is working on patches and fixes for the game and we are planning to be releasing them until the most of you (if not everyone!) in our beloved community is satisfied with our game.
Your Madmind Studio team
(and your one and only Red Goddess)
