Apple demands removal of ‘pornographic content’ in Papers Please
Papers Please, the award winning game where you are a customs official in charge of approving entrance to your country, had its first version banned by Apple. The body scan contained pornographic content, according to the tech giant.
In Papers Please you work at border control (in a fictitious Sovjetlike state in 1982) checking all incoming travelers. It is up to you to decide if they are allowed in or not. Each day you get a certain set of rules that you have to follow, making Papers Please an interesting and challenging game. To check the sex of a person, you get to use a body scan. But not on the iPad version of Papers Please. Apple thinks that the pixelated pictures of people in this game are already considered pornographic material.
Lucas Pope, maker of Papers Please, tweeted that the scan function had to be removed for the game to be allowed in the App Store. The issue has been taken care of, and you can play Papers Please on your iPad now. You can find it here.
Papers Please is also available for PC, Mac, and Linux. It has been announced for PS Vita too, but no release date has been given yet.
