You might remember We Happy Few from past Microsoft E3 presentations, an indie sporting a cool visual style as it creates a dystopian look at the 1960s where freedom is restricted. Although playable as part of the Xbox Game Preview program it turns out that it was refused classification by the Australian ratings board.
With the reasoning being a little cryptic.
The computer game is classified RC in accordance with the National Classification Code, Computer Games Table, 1. (a) as computer games that "depict, express or otherwise deal with matters of sex, drug misuse or addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or revolting or abhorrent phenomena in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults to the extent that they should not be classified."
Which makes you wonder exactly what part was deemed, well, illegal. Having played the game in an early state it's hard to see what about the experience would be considered too taboo for adult audiences. Currently slated for release this winter, looks like we won't be getting it here.
