Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Stop being babies!!!

This game is fine if your kid has watched Stranger Things or played Five Night's at Freddy's. The most violent thing you'll find in this game is a dead body on the floor with a little pool of blood, but kids have seen blood and corpses before, so let's cut the craziness. My son LOOVVESS FNaF, and that actually might be darker than this game, so get it for your kid if they are mature enough to handle a little bit of blood.
