Now that 17+ experiences are here, I’m excited to incorporate some more elements of gore for some stuff I was working on. Specifically in a folk horror styled game. (think blair witch, wicker man, until dawn, pet semetary etc.)
I’m gonna list a couple of things I wanted to include in some of my projects, but I’m not too sure how it’d go down with roblox. These things are:
- A rabbit with its chest cavity opened, and innards replaced with flowers
- Corpses suspended in tree branches (not impaled, just kind of caught on them)
- And are hangings and cannibalism still a no-go? Probably.
- Roadkill - such as a dead fox on the side of the road
Its tricky, because the animal-related things aren’t specifically animal abuse. There’s many games where you can kill and butcher an animal without issue so I think this would be okay.
As a refresher, here are the guidelines for 17+ gore:
17+ experiences on Roblox may include graphic and realistic-looking depictions of violence and heavy bloodshed, but we do not allow content that contains extreme violence or serious physical or psychological abuse, including:
- Animal abuse and torture
- Real-world depictions of extreme gore, graphic violence, or death
- The depiction, support, or glorification of war crimes or human rights violations, including torture
- The depiction, support, or glorification of real-world mass shootings and/or terrorism
Now I’m pretty sure that most of the things I listed are OK by these standards alone but roblox can be testy. And someone had told me, ‘if you have to ask, then no.’
And for reference this is gonna be a 17+ game I’m not intending to expose little kiddies to this
Thanks for reading! What are your opinions?
EDIT: Alright folks- Once again I am not intending to make this an all-ages access game. I wanted to guage the opinion on this kind of stuff, and I got it. I won’t be making this. Please don’t slander me, as with any change to the guidelines there’s gonna be a period of people figuring out what’s okay, (which I intend to abide by) and that’s just what I’m trying to do. And please don’t be super concerned or disturbed, I’m a fan of horror but I’d never hurt somebody and I always understand the difference between reality and games.
