During the PlayStation 5 reveal recently, Neostream Interactive had their 2015 crowdfunded title Little Devil Inside shown off as a timed exclusive and they've now clarified their plans for platforms.

The timed exclusive deal caused a bit of a ruckus with backers, with quite a few angry comments aimed at the developers. However, according to what they said, this PlayStation 5 timed exclusive deal will not be affecting the release of the PC version so they're still firmly aiming for a concurrent launch on PC - the exclusive deal only affects console.

After reaching out to Neostream directly, they mentioned to me today that the Linux version is still planned to launch alongside Windows, "We'll be trying to get it to Linux at the same time as Windows. We will be clarifying again on all the precise platforms soon.".

Here's their brand new trailer, see below:

They've also seen some controversy elsewhere. In the trailer at about 0:46, you can see characters chasing the protagonist wearing masks. Apparently this caused a stir as some claimed it was a racial stereotype. The team released a statement on Facebook to apologize and they will be adjusting that model to remove the dreadlocks, change their "bold lips", skin tone and change the dart blower "so it looks less like a joint".

When we hear more about a Linux PC release date we will let you know.

We missed this one on our dedicated Crowdfinding Page, so it has been added today. It's now hit 350 projects being listed and still more to add yet.

Now that they edit the masked characters, other (or probably even the same) people will complain that they now removed the African culture whatnot and that the removal is racist.

Yeah, why talk about what actually happened when you can make up things that might happen in the future?
The latter is so much easier and more fun...!

What the actual... Are they going to go after the protagonist's winter coat next for being cultural appropriation?

"They" are such a scary bunch. Always going after things that are ever so important to people who never knew they cared.

Well all this SJW bullshit just did one thing: push me away from this game. The devs shouldn’t have listened to them.

Good. Crawl back into the hole you came from.

Quoting: The_Aquabatapparently JRR Tolkien is being called racist

If Tolkien being seen as racist shocks you, then you missed the last, like, 60 years of academic discourse about the racial aspects of Tolkien's work (*). Like basically every literary work, Tolkien's is colored by the society it came from, the mind of its creator, etc. And yes, there are absolutely racist ideals that can be found there. (Gender politics too is abound in his works, of course. That topic might be more familiar to some people, when it came to the forefront of the changes the LotR movies did to Arwen.)

That doesn't mean it's forbidden to read or anything, it just means we need to be aware of it. And discussing these things works wonders there.

And yeah, sometimes, some issues can be fixed or at least patched by shuffling things around. Adaptations commonly do that.

(*) "What's next, H.P. Lovecraft being called racist?"

soulsource, I think you should re-read that comment, because stan is not saying what you think they say. They're not complaining that removing it is racist, but they're denying that they were racist to begin with. I mean, the use of "SJW" is a pretty good signal of their political views here

Quoting: DrMcCoyIf Tolkien being seen as racist shocks you
Of course it shocks me because Tolkien was against the nazis, and jewish holocaust.

Quoting: DrMcCoyTolkien's is colored by the society it came from, the mind of its creator, etc.

what do you mean? Tolkien was a racist boer? I suppose I'm missing something here. I mean is there proof of Tolkien doing racists things when he lived in South Africa?
Him being a boer doesn't make him a racist, like not everyone living in the Nazi germany was actually a Nazi.

Quotethere are absolutely racist ideals that can be found there. (Gender politics too is abound in his works, of course.

Lords of the Rings is a medieval mythology tale, does portraying medieval stories makes you a racist?

I don't know man, as person that has suffered racism on a trip to Europe, because of being Latin (I was beaten up and a friend of mine was stabbed, and our car destroyed) sometimes I feel some ppl take things to dangerous extremes (ie censoring).

As DrMcCoy said, this doesn't make sense. Stan did nothing what you said some people would, he doesn't even take side of these people and thus, obviously nothing has been proven.
