UK developer Zombie Cow Studios has decided to cancel the Xbox 360 version of their in-development sexual education game, Privates, after being told by Microsoft that it would not pass its censors.
"The guys at Xbox have been amazing," said Dan Marshall of Zombie Cow Studios. "They've been really supportive and helpful throughout, but ultimately have advised that the game wouldn't pass the Indie Games Peer Review process, purely due to its inherently sexual nature."
"It's a shame, but it's something we'd always pretty much assumed would happen."
In Privates the player explores human internal organs, battling anthropomorphised sexually-transmitted diseases and encountering visual depictions of genitalia. The PC version of the game is readily available for free download at its official site.
