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.

This game is AWESOME. it is not that violent and nothing bad exept for one or 2 curses that are in the game. f your kid is age 10 or up they should have lots of fun and not see or hear anything that bad.

But if you already have an older version, the improvements aren't really worth buying it again. The older Steam version can be modded to an even better state than this somewhat lazy cash grab.
