So, I’m currently entered in a game jam and wanted to use Adventuron to code my text adventure entry. I’ve decided to make a horror game.
My dilemma comes up when talking about the content limitations in the license agreement. Now, my game doesn’t have sexual or hateful content, but it does feature a couple dead bodies and some descriptions of body horror (missing limbs, open ribcages, demons getting stabbed, things like that).
My first instinct was to categorize those scenes as “adult content” and write a content warning on the title screen of the game. However, thinking about it more, I began to wonder if body horror delved more into “grossly offensive material” territory.
I know this is INCREDIBLY nuanced, but I’m one of those people that has to know they’re following the rules before doing anything, so I figured it’d be better to ask ahead of time. Anyway, any thoughts would be appreciated! Just trying to make a fun horror experience without taking things too far.
