Devotion was in the news recently as it was finally made available after being delisted for more than two years following the controversy that occurred when users found an in-game Winnie the Pooh meme mocking Chinese President Xi Jinping.
In 2020, Devotion was set to return via CD Projekt’s GOG distribution platform, but GOG posted a message later that day saying, “after receiving many messages from gamers, we have decided not to list the game in our store.”
Red Candle Games took matters into its own hands and created its very own Red Candle e-shop to sell its games in hopes to “provide a direct and simple purchasing channel for players who’re interested in our games.”
For more, check out our review of Devotion, in which we said, “From start to finish, Devotion is an excellent psychological horror game full of surreal imagery, creepy dolls, and wonderful environmental storytelling.”
