This question might have been asked before, but I looked back 15 pages and couldn’t find it. Mods, feel free to close/delete if this is redundant.
Okay, so COG says that they won’t publish games that are highly offensive, and I was wondering what that means? Obviously, I understand using things like the rape or racial slurs without a good reason is pretty icky and I certainly support not supporting those things. But would including sexual content (to be clear: consensual sexual content) be offensive? What about creative/descriptive violence? Is that offensive?
I ask because I’m rather desensitized to both areas of discussion, because I work at an abuse clinic where obviously both things are high on the list of things I deal with, and I wouldn’t want to write a game that couldn’t be published just because I casually wrote in a sexual encounter/excruciating death scene without thinking. (It happens!)
Bonus question: if you don’t think those things are offensive (or if you do), what do you think should be the limits of what people can write in these games?
