Dear Poor Souls,

I went to hell and back. It was a hard struggle, but I managed to bring some news. I already said hi in the comments section. I wanted to have a big entrance here as well. I’m going to take care of you from now on! Please find the question you are interested in, and by the use of black magic, the answer will appear under it.    

  • I backed Agony with a copy of the game on one platform and wanted to switch to another. Is it possible?
    No, it is not. Every Backer will get a copy of the game on the platform that was chosen during the backing of the project. 
  • How will we choose the game platform (for those who pick the pledge with a choice)?
    You will receive a message with a survey. 
  • When do we get the survey?
    Once the game is Gold.That means when we finish the core game and send it to be burned on the discs. 
  • How about the physical rewards?
    We will handle them when Agony is Gold. There is going to be a survey to get your T-shirt size. You will also get the possibility to change your delivery address. 
  • Any news on the new release date?
    When asked, the Dark Lord said only: SOON
  • Will all the platforms have the same release date?
    Yes, all console and PC players will play Agony on the same day. 
  • Does VR support arrive on the premiere date?
    No, it will appear later. The Dark Lord gestured not to bother him with this question now. A bit later I brought him a fresh soul, and he told me that the VR version would be something more than just a regular play. The gameplay will be tailored especially for VR. Many aspects of the game must be changed so you will have a better experience with Agony in that mode. 
  • What about names in the credits? Are you going to add them?
    Yes, your (nick)names are already there. In a couple of weeks, we will show you the list. Then we can make some changes and add those who can’t find themselves on the list. 
  • Will the game appear on GOG?
    I can’t say for sure. We are working on it. As soon as I have the answer I’ll let you know. 
  • Are you still planning on selling the Onoskelis figurine?
    We do want to do that. If it happens, it is going to be a couple of months after the release. 
  • In case you release the figurines, will the Backers get a discount on them?
    We can’t say anything now, as we don’t even know if we will release the figurines. 
  • Let's assume, you will be selling figurines, can we purchase just the project for 3D printers?
    If so, you will have an option to purchase STL file, plain printed 3D model or painted printed 3D model. 
  • What about different censorship on the available platforms?
    All versions will be the same. 
  • Are you going to give us a tool to deal with the censorship?
    No, we aren’t. We promised to publish all the censored materials online, all in a good quality. 
  • Please tell us more about the Red Goddess!
    All the information is hidden in the game. We don’t want to spoil it. You’ve got to find the answers for yourselves. 
  • Does the game support 4k resolutions on consoles and PC? What about ultra-panoramic resolutions?
    The game runs on Unreal Engine 4, which handles all those resolutions. 

Ok, I’m exhausted. Hey you, yes, you, come a little closer let me taste your warm blood… 

(After a quick snack) 

Back (wipes the muzzle with his paw). I hope it is all Earthlings. In other case do let me know if you dare… 

Yours truly evil,

      Was a list of the names in the credits ever shared?

      Angela,

      In my opinion, you can play on PS4, and you will have the same experience like you would have on the PC with the patch.
      We mainly censored a few scenes from the endings of the game (there are 7 endings), so I think you can play on PS4, go through the game and when you see credits, then only watch the ending without censorship, online. It's mostly stuff from the final videos and few elements which can be found in the game, after the first playthrough. Most of the players probably won't even find it.

      Yours truly evil,

      Thank you for reconfirming the patch -- once again, the venerated Agony awaits us all!
      Good work guys. Three years hoping to see this come to fruition, and it's about to fully materialize; this will be of epic proportions.

      I am disappointed that compromises have been made for what I am assuming is the wishes of your publisher. I can understand the waits and delays for polish and making sure the game offers the best experience possible, but as others have said the game is an entire year behind its initially scheduled release date, a delay that first began when we got word a publisher had reached out to you wanting to make physical copies of Agony. I can only assume they have been picking apart at the game demanding changes be made to get the game through the rigorous standards of physical retailers.
      All in all, while I don't doubt you will have crafted an excellent game worth the wait when it finally releases, I am skeptical of your ability as a studio to make decisions that won't hinder your ability to honor the promises you make in future projects.

      my biggest concern was the censorship. letting SJWs control our art and free speech has been one of the worst rights to be relinquished in america and taken in other countries. im so happy to hear my money will not be diminished by the overly sensitive people out there and we are getting an uncensored patch. after all, when i backed this project, i was expecting a game for adults, not teenagers.

      So the "scenes" are they just Cut scenes that were cut and censored?
      Also Will they be listed in an order of when they take place in the game so people can watch them as they play to get the full experience ?

    7. TheHellMessenger Collaborator on

      I heard the summoning call, so here I am Mortals.

      I see many of you are concerned about what I said in the update. I'll try to address it all.

      Connor, I did answer your question. As for now, there is no option to change the backed version. The decision is up to the Publisher, and the Dark Lord is negotiating this.

      Oli, we want to make the game the best possible, and we need extra time for that. It's hard for us to say exactly how many days we need to get this done. Above that, the Publisher must choose the appropriate date. So it's a more complex case. I'll tell you the date as soon as I know it.

      About the censorship. When I wrote this note using warm, fresh blood, the PC patch was a no go. It changed lately, and yes you're correct. There will be an optional patch for the PC version. We couldn't leave the 100% uncensored version, as in that state the game would never be accepted for a release in any country in the world. Only a 1% of the game is censored. There will be nipples, there will be blood, there are going to be walls built from children bodies and many, many more. We really don't want to spoil the game to say, which exact scenes were cut out. The scenes that were cut will appear on high-quality videos.

      The VR version is going to be an enhanced experience rather than downgraded. We found that many aspects of the game does not work in VR and simply want to make them better.

      If you still have questions, do write them. I know where you live anyways ]:->

      Yours truly evil,

      I'm in the same boat as Connor White. I pledged for a PS4 copy (which is more expensive), and I need a PC version. You can keep the higher price, I have no problem with that, just give me a PC copy instead of a PS4 copy. Can be digital, even, doesn't need to be physical. But needs to be PC or I'll be seeking a refund. Can we get clarity on whether this is possible?

    9. Jesper on

      They clarified half a day ago. There will definitely be a day 1 patch for PC to get all the sexy goodness back in.

      From the dev: There will be an uncensored patch for PC, day one. I can't say what scenes will be included in this patch, because of the spoilers. But you guys will get this patch, don't worry.

      PR guy, please be so blatantly obvious and clear with your posts that there can be no doubt. :P

    10. Daniel Rubel on

      Well this is a disappointing update.

      Censored game, no PC patch to make it uncensored...

      VR version will have "tailored gameplay" which is usually a code phrase for dumbing the game down to some teleportation mechanic filled snooze fest. There goes my dream of exploring hell in VR.

    11. Martin Bergmann on

      "publish all the censored materials online, all in a good quality" - what does this actually mean?? Gameplay videos? Cartoons? Screenshots? If it's not uncensored playable content that can be patched into the actual game, it is NOT what you had promised.

      As others mentioned before, I am an adult (have been so for many decades now) and can handle the originally promised content. This uncensored content is what I and all others on Kickstarter had backed. It seems to me that you are changing the goalposts once you hold the money. If this is the case, I will certainly be looking for a refund or another satisfactory solution.

      Ok, so I knew I read it somewhere that you guys would include a patch for PC; "in the scenario that we are forced to remove anything to get M rating on consoles", on Steam it says: ... "In that scenario, you can expect to see free "18+ patch" for pc"

      "It's a more complicated case. It easy for you to ask, you're not the one who will be skinned by the Dark Lord... I already talked to a truly friendly Succubus, and I'll tell you the date the second I know myself."

      It's a year delayed and has been delayed several times now. It shouldn't be a complicated answer now. Do you not have a plan what what is outstanding, or are you just guessing at this stage?

      Considering you have decided to censor the game too, this is showing the marks of a very poorly managed kickstarter project.

      I'd imagine the pertinent question is; did Agony receive an Adult Only rating, landing it among the ranks of Manhunt 2, Hatred, etc?

      Uh oh, here we go ...

      Are you going to give us a tool to deal with the censorship?
      No, we aren’t. We promised to publish all the censored materials online, all in a good quality.

      Connor White on

      I think I am doomed to never get my questions answered. I don’t think they have ever responded to me (and a lot of other people). It is getting really annoying. I will need a refund if I cant choose the PC as I will be unable to play the game otherwise.

    17. Donald Bradley on

      I believe you owe all backers an explanation as to exactly why your planning to censor our copy of the game? The vague answer given in the colorfully worded post sounds like you no longer care about the promises you'd already made to everyone.

      I'm not sure who your publisher is but I have the feeling the console versions had a lot to do with the trimming/censoring done on the PC version. Of course I'm only shooting in the dark...

      The game is going to be censored now? wtf? And we don't get an option to turn it off?

      Wow. I've just lost all interest in this game now.

    19. Zarathustra on

      Since I'm not especially interested in experiencing "Agony" by myself, I am nevertheless markedly interested in getting to know about the actual release.
      Thx for any info.

      As I backed for an uncensored game.
      I'd like to know WHAT was censored and hopefully access to uncensored material in the form of a patch of some kind...

      I mean really you keep us waiting all this time and barely put your kickstarter backers first and then we get hit with no way to patch through the censorship THAT wasn't in the original stuff shown to us.

      I backed this for how awesome it was to see people "Daring" to be controversial similar to the likes Dante's inferno but BETTER on a grand scale!
      To show what people are so damn scared of showing in games due to fear of being banned in some countries,to hear you've given into censorship pressure is just Sad.

      Honestly my husband has been dying to play this but if you've heavily censored the nudity,i'd like to know to tell him the game We backed isn't THAT game anymore.

    21. Matthew Phoenix Churchill on

      there best be a patch or atleast an unnoficial patch to remove censorship on PC as i backed for an uncensored game and only an uncensored game.

      Thank you for confirming that you are looking into the possibility of a GoG release.

    23. Mihai on

      i dont like a game that dont gives u the option/tool to remove any censorship -.-

      high quality pixel/black/mosaic spots lowers the quality -.-

    24. MannyLaMancha on

      I don't know all the details on the censorship being mentioned, but one of the things that drew me to this Kickstarter was how raw this version of Hell was supposed to be. I would be very disappointed if a patch to make the game uncensored weren't released.

    25. Michal Bayerl on

      Nice one Hell Messenger. Zuckerberg was definitely on a visit there, poor soul.

      So will I be unable to choose the PC version if my pledge is the console version even though the PC version is cheaper? Circumstances have changed for me and I would now like it on PC. Surely this can be done?

    28. TheHellMessenger Collaborator on

      It's a more complicated case. It easy for you to ask, you're not the one who will be skinned by the Dark Lord... I already talked to a truly friendly Succubus, and I'll tell you the date the second I know myself.

      "We will inform you as soon as possible with the final release date of the game".

      That was the last update, last month.

      "Soon"

      That is all you can say in this update? You haven't planned out what remains to be done or how many man hours it is going to take to complete?
