Madmind Studios’ hellish horror title Agony was released at the end of last month with a plethora of bugs and problems. The developers had to remove some of the more ‘mature’ content so it could be approved by Steam.
Earlier today the developer has announced that a new version of the game will be released called Agony Unrated which will come with additional content, fixes, and will also add back in the removed adult content. This separate version will be produced and published by Madmind Studio without the involvement of any publishers.
On release, it will be offered as a huge discount, practically free if not free, to all existing owners of the original release. This new release could be the result of Valve’s blog post where they stated that they will freely allow all sorts of games to to be approved for release, unless it’s illegal or a troll game.
The full statement from Madmind is as follows:
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.
