German Rating

26 posts in this topic

Before I start, can we no longer post in the about game section? 

 

I remember a post where someone posted a video talking about german ratings board and what they don't allow.  I can't seem to locate it so I'm just going to ask here. This game did get a non ao rating in Germany, right? Just wondering how they pulled that off? Did they make some radical changes for that version? Is the German version going to be compatible with everyone else or has everyone been turned into robots? Just curious

I think it's about time Germany and Australia changed some laws so they aren't based on pseudo-science no more.

I listened to the slash n cast podcast recently where they interviewed Wes. He said that the review wasn't going well in Germany and they needed to appeal an appeal and stuff like that. Do you think the game will be available at launch in Germany with the current time frame?

I ask only for a friend of mine who's a backer there. And an answer like "We'll know as soon as WE know" is acceptable haha.

Not to say Wes was wrong...but basically here's how it happens: 

1. We were initially refused classification. 

2. We appealed and were granted USK18+

3. One of the committee members for the rating appealed and we are currently waiting to completely approve our rating. I can't get into specifics, but we are very hopeful.

You were never able to post in the "About Game" section.  Those are for Staff.

Really? Idk why I thought I've posted in there before then.

OMG! I feel so honored to have a response from the man himself. Any tidbits of info that you might be able to divulge? Probably not, but have to ask.

Ben has a common presence here.

A true honor is Wes or someone from Ilfonic.

Thanks for the info. I'm sure he'll feel a lot better knowing that.

I've seen Ben's posts here and there but still nice to hear from the source.

or you know, you could follow the rules and actually act like you want to be a part of this community instead of being sarcastic. You know, just some food for thought.

I didn't think it'd be taken so seriously, my bad.

I was making fun of myself, not Ben, sorry if it looked that way.

From the F13th Game Twitter:

If you are in Germany, we have good news! We just got final confirmation of our rating at USK18+. The game will in No way be censored!

Wow, that's impressive. Good on them.

Nice to hear. I'm really surprised in a positive way about the decisions of the USK (the german Entertainment Software Self-Regulation Body ) or the BPjM (German Federal Review Board for Media Harmful to Minors ), whoever was responsible, during the last few years. In the beginning they put everything with blood, violence and / or sexuality to a black list called "the index" (most of the F13 movies were on this list in the 80s and 90s :) ). But within the last years the decisions  became much more appropriate and much less  censorship than the years before. I really appreciate this.
