Trivia for the game Pepe Scream

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 17:05:44 +0000

Rejected from App Store

The iOS version of the game was rejected from the Apple App Store due to "Objectionable Content"; this was likely because in late 2016 the character of Pepe the Frog became increasingly associated with the radical alt-right movement, to the point of being entered in Anti-Defamation League's database of hate symbols. -- JudgeDeadd (17286)

The Ultimate Personality Contest

A personality is the settings and weightings the game uses when assessing possible next moves. The shareware game has several of these but users were given the tools to create their own and send them to the author. No prize was stated. -- piltdown_man (128559)



Trivia for the game #BlackLivesMatter

Sat, 10 Jun 2017 21:03:46 +0000

Banned for hate speech

The PC version of the game was originally sold on the itch.io website, and the Android version, completed in August, was going to be published on the Google Play Store. However Google rejected the game, stating that it violates their hate speech rules, while itch.io soon afterwards delisted the PC version for the same reason.

The developers, in an article subsequently published on the website Medium, described this as an instance of censorship. The incident was reported on a few websites, including the right-wing news websites Breitbart and Heat Street.

Both the PC and Android versions of the game were subsequently published as freeware on the developer's own website, which proudly described the game as "banned by Google Play and itch.io!" and stated that there was an "ongoing attempt to censor this game". -- JudgeDeadd (17286)
