Lansiranje prikolica za Siv Facebooku je zabranjen pristup "seksualno sugestivnim". Devolver je također pokušao uložiti žalbu na taj proces, ali je Facebook još uvijek odbio prikazivanje oglasa na svojoj platformi.
Očigledno je glavna slika zaglavlja bila razlog zbog kojeg je Facebook odbio oglas s prikolicom Siv, Devolver Digital podijelio je cvrkut s glavnog računa s objašnjenjem zagonetke.
Facebook je odbacio GRIS reklamni oglas za ovu "seksualno sugestivnu" scenu, tako da je ova godina do sada bila izvrsna. pic.twitter.com/frVaYOXIHe

In the thread Devolver reveals that their appeal fell on deaf ears, and since the game is a media darling, most major websites are reporting on Facebook’s censorship (conveniently enough while ignoring lots of other censorship happening in the industry, like Moje erotsko ljeto or Moe Reversi obojica dobivaju zabranu).
Even still, this kind of censorship seems to be par the course in terms of the kind of escalation we’ve been seeing. It started with the anime style games and the weeb titles, but now it looks like some Western games might be getting hit with the censorship hammer from the tech overlords as well.
What’s worse is that the launch trailer is completely benign.
What’s even funnier is that the developers had censored some other images within the game to secure the ‘E’ for Everyone rating from the ESRB.
Više na Parni forumi there’s a thread about why certain imagery in the game had been censored, specifically the nipples on the statues in the background.
As you can see, the change seemed completely pointless, but Devolver made sure the developers went the extra mile to make the imagery as non-sexual as possible. Yet, even that wasn’t enough to get a pass from Facebook. What’s more is that the image they censored wasn’t even the imagery that Facebook had a problem with, showing that even if you go the extra mile to censor your work it doesn’t mean that those who are in control of the ever-expanding rules of censorship will give you a pass when it’s time to promote the content.
