Superhot against self-harm

What's happening to Superhot VR in the last few hours is splitting the community of fans in two, as a recent update has created some heavy discussion. A patch of the game, released on July 21, 2021, has censored some gameplay sequences in which the protagonist is forced, for example, to shoot himself or to jump from skyscrapers. This is because, as the developers explain, they could be understood as acts of self-harm.

The software house has spoken about the matter, apologizing for the delay in removing these scenes since they understood that they could hurt the sensitivity of some users. In a message they state that "all the scenes that allude to self-harm are now completely removed from the game. Those situations have no place in Superhot's virtual reality. We are sorry it took so long. ”

This choice has sparked the anger of many users, who have started filling the game page on Steam with negative reviews, to the point of activating the anti system. -review bombing by Valve. Overall, fans complain about the censorship of content that, while very violent, was an integral part of the context of Superhot VR. Many agree that the team should have simply left the option not to show those specific scenes rather than remove them completely.

On the other hand, on the other hand, there are those who defend the software house by citing the freedom to treat their stock as they prefer, especially if they act in an attempt to defend the most susceptible. Although the situation is particularly difficult, the developer has already said that he will make this change on other platforms as well, demonstrating that he firmly believes in this ideal regardless of the criticism of those who cry out against censorship.
