The ESRB organization had assigned the classification “E” (“Everyone”) to the title Do Not Feed the Monkeys, which included adult content. However, the description given by the developer Alawar warns that the title may not be suitable for young players or for viewing at work. GoNintendo adds that it is even possible to see nudity during the first minutes of the free demo. Put on sale on the American store of Nintendo at the beginning of the week, the game was finally withdrawn recently.

Contacted by GamesIndustry, Alawar indicates that an update has finally been made; the title is now classified 17+ by the ESRB, and 12+ by PEGI. It is now available on the European eShop for € 12.99. “These are things that happen“, justifies the developer, anxious not to accuse anyone.
