Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition is available for purchase on GOG in China
Huh. That's... interesting. Doesn't China
have a thing against showing gore and people dying in video games? Last I checked, there's an awful lot of that happening in Sleeping Dogs, especially when it comes to some of the environmental finishers.
The Chinese government rarely has a problem with gore or death in games, but of course there's a limit. Their big problem is political statements or anything that might be construed as negatively portraying China
. If you do that you will definitely run into trouble.
Virtually all games on GOG and Steam are available in China
. Steam is in fact extrememly popular here. I'm trying to educate people about GOG and I think I have substantially increased GOG's business in China
. They really ought to pay me for it. The only times I have found games not available in China
is usually because of distribution rights. I noticed that Biped which was made by a Chinese company is not available on GOG in China
, but curiously is available on Steam.
