In a bizarre turn of events, GOG has suddenly revealed that Devotion won’t be coming to the platform after all.
They cite the reason for doing so “after receiving many messages from gamers”. It’s unclear what that exactly means for now, but it’s possible that GOG is referring to complaints made by gamers from China.
Developer Red Candle Games has announced that first-person psychological horror game Devotion will launch on GOG on 18 December 2020 for US$16.99 (or roughly RM68+).
The game first launched for PC via Steam in February 2019 but was removed by Valve from Steam in early 2019 due to assets that supposedly mocked Chinese President Xi Jinping. It’s been that way for more than a year, until now.
We (at Kakuchopurei) even listed Devotion as one of our best games of 2019, which just goes to show how much of a shame it is that it’s not available for more gamers around the world.
