iPad version of Papers, Please to get nudity restored in update
Papers, Please arrived on iPad this week, but an initial build depicting nudity when players searched the bodies of travelers was rejected by Apple on the grounds of containing "pornographic content." That decision appears to have been reversed however – developer Lucas Pope recently tweeted about a conversation with Apple concerning the denied version, claiming that Apple described that rejection as a misunderstanding. Pope added that Apple has also suggested he resubmit the build that includes nudity.

Though news of the rejected build drew ire from fans, Pope stated that the Apple representative "made it clear" that the decision was based on a mistake in their procedures rather than a response to backlash. Pope estimates that an update to restore the option of nudity should be available by next week.

Papers, Please will also eventually travel to Vita, though Pope is hesitant to give a launch window for that version, suggesting he "probably announced it too early."
