Agony UNRATED - 31st October 2018!

Posted by PlayWay (Creator)

It's time to end up joking. Agony UNRATED will be released on this Halloween, and it will be free for our backers!

Madmind Studio would like to inform you that today we have finished work on the uncensored version of Agony. Agony UNRATED will make its debut this Halloween, 31st October. We are aware that the premiere of our first game was disappointing for many players, as numerous technical errors and censored content effectively distracted from the game. We would like to apologize for the mistakes we made and to compensate players for a long time waiting for the UNRATED version, making it available at a significantly lower price. Agony UNRATED will be released on the STEAM platform, at the price of 14.99$/14.99€/49.99PLN. Players who already have regular Agony in their Steam library will receive a 90% discount on the UNRATED version. UNRATED agony will be made available for free on 29th October for all Agony Kickstarter backers.

Agony UNRATED Trailer on YouTube:

Agony UNRATED - changes from the basic version:

  • Improved quality of character models and textures,
  • New types of threats - Traps,
  •  New types of environmental threats,
  • New types of static opponents,
  • A new, more extensive and useful character development system,
  • Volumetric lighting,
  • Normal Mode and Hard Mode with more opponents and puzzles,
  • Completely new type of environment - the Forest, added to the procedurally generated Agony Mode, which now also includes additional traps and boss fights,
  • 8 different endings in the Story Mode,
  • Possibility to follow the story mode as a Sukkub,
  • Sukkub Mode and Agony Mode are unlocked at the first start of the game,
  • Many new, uncensored scenes,
  • Black and red image filter, inspired by the Agony trailers,
  • World map and minimap,
  • The possibility of setting up a fire and killing some opponents as a martyr,
  • Sacrificial altars,
  • New and modified paths for the player,
  • Numerous technical improvements to the basic version of the game and much more.

Legal statement

Unfortunately, but the contracts we have in force, both publishing and rating, blocked us from releasing the patch and removing the censorship from the game. Any lawsuit related to the violation of these rules would most likely lead to the closure of our studio. To release Agony Unrated, we had to choose an alternative route and remain in the shadows by announcing the suspension of our work on the game. Today, after a few months since the release of Agony, the deadline for contracts binding us has passed and we can share these details with you. At the moment, the PC is the only platform that gives us the freedom to create the world we've come up with. This, unfortunately, means Agony Unrated can never appear as a Digital Edition on consoles. If players and reviewers positively receive Agony Unrated, we will try to get a contract with the publisher who will agree to issue a limited number of copies of the boxed game, both on PS4 and Xbox One. The release of the game in a box version is the only option for the production with the "Adult Only" age rating to appear on consoles.

Agony: Nintendo Switch

We would like to inform that thanks to establishing cooperation with our colleagues from Ultimate Games, Agony will also be released in the Nintendo Switch version. The premiere is planned for the end of 2018.

      Will the game be playable on the 29th or is this just to make sure we have a key in time for the 31st?

      thanks for the update HellMessenger :)

      Also, if any of our backers still didn't get the code or is not included in the ending subtitles, please send us an email at

      Take care,

      Hi Guys,

      - All KS backers, regardless of the chosen version, will receive the code for UNRATED on 29th October.
      - We are still thinking about the VR version, but it's too early to announce anything. The situation is dynamic, so stay tuned!
      - Our contracts regarding the console versions have expired, and we can't add anything without the team responsible for the port. If UNRATED is received well, we may come back to updating console versions sometime in the future, but we can't promise anything.
      - The game will be free to all people who bought Agony on Steam. It's impossible for other platforms.
      - Currently, there is only the Steam version in our plans, but if there will be an opportunity to release it somewhere else, we are open to it.

      Take care,
      The Hell Messenger

      Will console backers also get a free Steam version on the 29th; because "... available for free on 29th October for ALL Agony Kickstarter backers" includes them too, I guess!?

    6. Vrook on

      Can't Wait! Been waiting to play the game until the unrated version was out. Thanks guys! See you in hell...

      Good news so far.
      But any chance my backer name is in THIS version then?

    8. Seppo Seppälä

      Guys, please, PLEASE make console versions of Agony Unrated happen! Talk to Limited Run Games!

    9. Philip McCrary

      I'm guessing that backers will get a code for Steam for the 29th, since it's supposed to be free for us on that day only. If I'm incorrect, please tell me. I'm looking forward to this very much!

      Great news, I participated especially because of the uncut gore scenes and setting. Good that I had not much time now to play it any further for a while and restart with "my" version after the release. Thanx!

      ESRB AO games are NOT allowed on consoles, BUT PEGI 18 games ARE allowed, so go with PEGI for a console version, and all systems are region free, so we can get the PEGI version uncut.

      I really can't wait Thank you Madmind for keeping us up to date with the updates and its great news you perused the challenge to carry on with updating the game and now releasing the long awaited version that was always the vision from the beginning despite all the negative feedback from people I'm glad this wasn't put into the "we will sort it later" pile keep up the awesome work and keep the content rolling and there will be a lot of very happy supporters out there I will see you all back in hell, providing you havn't left hell

    13. Michal Bayerl on

      Great news. I didn't start the first version of the game yet, but this Unrated version is top on my waiting list now.

    14. Tobias Gasser on

      Amazing news! Can´t wait to play the unrated version of the game!!!!! Are there any plans for a steam-less release of the unrated version (maybe in a fancy box we can order)?

    15. Sean Trostle McCarter on

      The switch announcement surprises me the most. I mean, this announcement surprises me in general, but imagining this on a Nintendo is almost unreal.

    16. David Carter on

      Nice! To be honest, I never completed the original, but, now that the unrated version is being released, ill see that version through to the end

      I'm curious if the unrated steam version will be available for free to those that purchased a console version. Could you please give more information on that?

    18. CrazY_IwaN on

      Good news!

      Only 10 days to go.

      I appreciate this unexpected and welcome announcement, and right on you for making this freely available to backers. I truly hope that getting the game running in VR (full story, not just a tack-on “mode”) is next on your priority list, as that was my reason for purchasing the game, and I’m holding off playing until VR is ready.

    20. Mihai on

      next time dont do consoles too many rules that are from 90s never been changed thats why PC is better.

    21. Paul Dulski on

      If you wanna do a limited edition for consoles of the unrated version, go through Limited Run Games.

      Glad that you guys still on the project, despite the bad initial release and legal problem.

      Looks like I'll need to give it another shot

      Finally, the long awaited version.
      Now , go on the VR version ( that is THE reason i backed this game ).

    25. Tsusaku on

      Ok i would like to once again ask for resending me the game code, i somehow lost it and wasn't able to activate it on steam (forgot to activate it and probably deleted the mail afterwards). I did send you a mail a long time ago, but nobody answered.

    26. Stefan Guhl on

      Wow, the trailer is awesome.

    27. Stefan Guhl on

      Thats great news. I will be super happy, if i can play it.

    28. Manga John on

      As an aside, I got it on xbox, will i get a free version on steam or will i have to purchase again?

    29. Manga John on

      I knew you guys would come through for us, shame about all the legal bullshit but you kept your kickstarters in mind and provided for them when you didn't have to. Good on you madmind

    30. Wednesdae on

      Fantastic news, well done madmind :)

    31. RIKUSYO on

      Congrats. But before that please fix the original version of "Unforgettable Journey" achievement. I can not get it yet ....

    32. le gamer masqué on

      backers will have a free code?

    33. anseme on

      This is great news and I understand that releasing the unrated version isn't possible on console, but there are 18 bullet points of changes. Any chance the other 17 might be updated on console?

      I'm rather surprised at this announcement, in a good way but also not. While I'm glad that you guys finally managed to bring your original vision of this game to light, I'm a bit disappointed personally, as I don't own a gaming PC. Maybe it's time to correct that now :) It's nice to see that you're giving it free to us backers though ;) Here's hoping it won't hurt your sales too much.

      I'm still wondering if the emaining missing backers' names will still be added to the normal version. Me and my fiance for example have still not been included :( And what about Agony Unrated? Can you guarantee that we shall all be in there this time?

      If you do manage to release it on consoles as a boxed version, I will buy it day 1! So fingers crossed for that one :)

      I respect and admire that you guys continued on this journey instead of packing your bags, despite all the negativity coming your way. Keep it up :)

    38. Angela

      Glad to finally see some good news.
      Been holding out hope that the unrated version wasn't shelved for good.

    39. Ciro Principe on

      Any chance the upcoming Switch version will be discounted for backers?
