When a teaser trailer for Ubisoft’s upcoming adult-orientated party game We Dare – which will be available for the Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 3 – first hit the Internet a couple of weeks ago, it (and the game itself) sparked quite a reaction amongst parents and politicians.
Shortly after, the developer announced that the game would unfortunately not be released in the United States. According to a recent article by Andy Chalk over at escapistmagazine.com (via IGN), Ubisoft has now decided to cancel the game’s release in the UK as well.
Although the actual trailer raised a few eyebrows, the uproar was in fact sparked a few days later when PEGI gave the We Dare game a rating of 12+. PEGI has since defended its rating, stating that their conclusions were based upon the game’s experience and not the marketing.
However, it still hasn’t stopped parents from expressing their opinion on the game, which appears to be that it would encourage children to engage in underage sex. What do you think of PEGI’s 12+ rating for the We Dare game? How many more countries will see their releases canceled?
It kind of makes us think that the game is maybe doomed from the start. What do you think?
