Devotion, the horror game from Red Candle Games which was taken off the list in February 2019, is now available digitally and in a DRM-free format. Twitter, confirming that Devotion, Detention and all of its future projects will be available in its own Red Candle online store in the hopes of “providing a straightforward and easy shopping channel for players interested in our games.”Devotion was removed from Steam in 2019 after users found an in-game Winnie the Pooh meme mocking Chinese President Xi Jinping. Red Candle apologized shortly thereafter, while saying she had no plans to reissue Devotion in the short term.

In 2020, Devotion was back in the news as Red Candle Games shared that Devotion to return via CD Projekt’s GOG distribution platform December 18, 2020.

However, GOG posted a message later today saying, “After receiving numerous messages from players, we have decided not to list the game in our store.”Now, after more than two years, those who want to try Devotion can finally do so once again.

If you are curious about the game, be sure to check out our Devotional review, where we said, “From start to finish, Devotion is a great psychological horror game full of surreal imagery, scary dolls, and wonderful environmental stories.”
