Papers, Please Nudity Being Patched Back in on iOS After Initial ‘Misunderstanding’ by Apple

Lucas Pope announced that his indie hit Papers, Please would be releasing on iPad earlier this week, albeit without the game’s nudity option during search scans. It seems that that things have changed, and we will be getting the uncensored version of the game after all.

Pope initially cited that the game’s first submission to Apple was rejected for “pornographic content” due to the game containing photos showing naked individuals after you scanned them at the game’s border security point. Apple has since been in touch with Pope, deeming the initial rejection as a “misunderstanding,” and has urged him to resubmit Papers, Please with the nudity option added back into the game.

While it made sense that the game may not contain nudity due to the odds that many more children will have access to the game through the App Store, considering how it’s not obscene in its nature it is great to hear that it will be added back in. Pope hopes to add the feature back in with an update that will be delivered over the weekend. You can pick up Papers, Please on iPad right now on the App Store for $5.99, a 25% discount from its regular price of $7.99.
