Wondering about the nature of the content and why it will be an "adult only" T.I.M.E story. If it has unnecessary nudity, myself and my game group may be disinclined to go through this one and it'd be a shame to have to skip one for that reason. Can someone clarify about this?

There is more information in this briefing.

There is no nudity on display, but that doesn't mean there won't be any, but we're adults going into an adult scenario and sometimes nudity is necessary.

Hi Barker,

I just played the game for the first time yesterday... and the base-game scenario climaxed with a naked women beckoning our group to stand on the points of a pentagram to participate in a (satanic?) ritual.

If your group made it past that one, then...

The first scenario says the woman was naked. It doesn't show nudity on the card.

At least in the European version it does (or at least it hints to it: http://asmodee.de/ressources/bonus/nervenheilstalt-karte-110....

Marcy also had a nudie mag. Anyway, just wait until the game hits retail and you can ask folks who played it, doubt you'll get definite answers otherwise.

Shooting/stabbing/clawing/killing people is acceptable, but showing a human nipple is not? Really?

The part of European/Western culture that hyper represses any nudity or sexuality, yet actively enables violence and our desensitization to it, is such an odd thing. I don't think it is a good thing either.

They are all unavoidable parts of our humanity, but nobody should be forced to watch any of them against their will. Let's leave it at that and go back to our game, please.

Playing a game, you aren't actually murdering people (and most of the time you are the good guy anyway), but some believe that viewing sexual images is the same as infidelity to your spouse and wish to avoid that in games/movies.

I could be wrong but I suspect the mature rating is more an "overly cautious" rating given the "backlash" the received over prior scenarios that included some things that are considered 'adult' (adult magazine on a card, etc) but that is just my guess given that we have not been told any official reasoning for the adult label.

No "backlash" here in Europe, and I've seen no news about any such from the USA, what happened?

Literally nothing in board games is "necessary." Nothing.

It hasn't even come out in the US yet. People are just guessing because US is usually more sensitive to nudity.

The claim was about prior scenarios, not Estrella Drive, and specifically referenced a card from The Marcy Case. I have seen that card described in a thread as containing "explicit pornography", which I thought was highly amusing given that we can see more than that on prime time television in the UK.
