Madmind Studios Cancels Agony Unrated Amongst Financial Woes


Following Agony‘s censorship, developer Madmind Studios promised to release an uncut version of the game, entitled Agony Unrated, which has now been cancelled.

In a statement on the title’s Steam page, the studio said the following:

“We regret to inform you that our company is currently struggling with financial problems. Due to technical and legal reasons, Madmind must cancel the development of Agony Unrated. Part of the team will continue to support Agony on Steam and consoles by publishing new patches.”

The developer went on to say that it has responded to a recurring issue on the Xbox One X port of the game, which its publisher will pass on to Microsoft soon. All versions of the game will also receive a new patch this week, which will iron out a bunch of major bug issues and refine the game’s lighting system.

Madmind did not expand on the “legal reasons” as to why it cannot continue development, but this can likely be attributed to the publisher’s lukewarm response to the title’s maximalism and the likelihood of being open to lawsuits.

The lack of an uncut version is a disappointing end to Agony‘s protracted censorship saga, with the game disappointing critically upon release. OnlySP’s Damien Lawardorn was less harsh on the game in his review, which argued that the project mainly suffered from pacing issues.
