Devotion, which was involved in the Chinese scandal, has completely disappeared from Steam
The Devotion scandal, which started a few days ago, has been expanded with another chapter, and the game of horror is not even available on Steam.
- An offensive meme referring to the Chinese president was found in a horror game called Devotion
- The ratings on Steam then began to deteriorate rapidly
- By now, the game has been removed from the store everywhere
As you may have read yesterday, Taiwan’s RedCandleGames, their horror game just a few days ago, Devotion In connection with this, the players found a poster with the words “Xi Jinping Pooh Idiot” in it. Who would not have a picture of this: Chinese President Xi Qing-ping banned Pooh from the country anno, mostly because of the similarity memes – the caption suggests.
After the highly questionable easter egg was found, the rating of the originally well-received game on Steam began to deteriorate, “thanks” to the Chinese players. However, it soon became clear that this was just the beginning, as Devotion had disappeared from the Chinese and then international Steam offerings – it could not be purchased at the moment.
The developers’ official announcement reads that the game was intentionally downloaded from Steam, but it was not specified when Devotion could return.
“Due to technical issues and other reasons that led to unexpected crashes, we decided to take Devotion out of the Steam store to do a full quality check. However, we would also like to take this opportunity to ease the tension in our community, which is a previous scandal. Therefore, our team will re-examine each element in the game to make sure there are no similar temporary materials left. “
Whether that’s really the case, or maybe it’s just an excuse, and actually something much more serious is in the background, at most the developers and Steam know. In any case, we hope to see Devotion back on offer as soon as possible, as it’s really a great horror game that rightly received strong reviews after its release.
You can also see the latter in the next issue of PC Guru, as we also tested the game of the Taiwanese team.
