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.

Delightfully dark Gothic Adventure blends Exploration and Text-Based Adventure

Violence and Scariness: Text contain references to some graphic violent acts and rituals, but are never shown. Exploration mode features combat against other ships (ships sink) and sea monsters (leaving trails of blood in water and monsters disappear once defeated). Not very graphic. Some scary imagery, and game often has dark tone. Language: All language in the game is censored, all you see is the first and last letter of words. Sex/Nudity: No visible sex, but there are occasional mild allusions to it. It is also possible to get married and have a child, but nothing really sexual about that. Drugs: Some references to alcohol and fictitious drugs, though none are ever taken by any characters in the game, and are said to have terrible consequences.
