Infernal: Hell's Vengeance is a choking hazard [update]


Update: A Playlogic spokesperson commented on the matter: "Infernal: Hell's Vengeance does not come packaged with any type of ball or choking hazard. We are in touch with Amazon and they will be removing the erroneous warning as soon as possible."

When creating a game called Infernal: Hell's Vengeance, you may catch some flak. Whether it's from Bible-thumpers or those protesting the inaccurate depiction of a vengeful underworld (seriously misunderstood place, folks), you just have to be prepared for some backlash. Well, that isn't the only thing developer Playlogic will have to handle, as this Amazon listing for the game is bound to bring out the anti-choking activists around the globe.

Sure, we could blame Playlogic for deciding to add "a small ball" to the package or for the game's "small parts," both of which present a pretty big choking risk for children under three years of age, but the company is putting out mature content here. If Playlogic stopped to think about every child in the world while creating games, then we'd never get to see what Hell got so pissed about to begin with. And, in the end, who does that really help?
