First PT, now this… :disappointed_relieved:

This is worse because it’s state pressured censorship.

I wonder where all the free speech warriors are for this ACTUAL censorship…

For anyone else who’s real disappointed about this you may, like me, be interested in seeing a Let’s Play recorded by katbampow and featuring friend of Waypoint Jack DeQuidt.

They have a VOD of the start up here: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/452900262
(Very detailed CW for this video and the game as a whole appear in text at the very beginning)

And they’re basically premiering pre-recorded episodes nightly on twitch. Sucks that we can’t all access the game but I’ve really enjoyed their first episode and I’m looking forward to the rest.
