You may remember that there was a bit of a controversy leading up to Original Sin‘s release: the artist responsible for the character’s designs was forced to censor his original drawing of the main female protagonist and change it to something less skimpy due to public outcry. Naturally, people were upset, but the game’s quality was such that the situation was somewhat overshadowed by the overwhelmingly strong public reaction to Larian’s newest CRPG.
And yet, during this recent Steam sale, some observant gamers discovered that the banner ad for the game mysteriously returned to the pre-censored version.
It’s rather well known that Larian wasn’t happy with the redesign, but you know how the industry is right now. To see them return to the old design when their game is at its most visible thanks to the current Steam sale is quite telling, however. There is already a lengthy discussion going on about this on the Steam forums, for those interested.
