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.

Things you need to know

I don't want to include any spoilers in my review, but there are certain things you must know if you are considering letting a child play this game without playing it completely through yourself first. This game includes: * A strong theme of sacrifice (of others against their will) * Self-harm (removing of the player's teeth and eyes as a price) * Multiple uses of the f-word * Existential horror * Mild references to torture, including some characters driven to insanity from it * A blurring between reality and fiction that could be distressing for children

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
