Both Wired Productions and LKA have always been open and honest about the content of Martha Is Dead, consistently communicating the sensitive images in the game to the media since the game was announced in 2019.

Opinion: I’ll wait my verdict until I see the uncut version of Martha Is Dead
Zamena writes… Sony has some pretty graphic and violent first-party games on its platforms (The Last of Us Part II is one of many), so I’m curious as to what exactly was censored and why. I reserve my judgment until I see the scenes, especially in the context of the game. What I do find bizarre is that Sony has waited until the last minute to demand changes. A little annoying for the developers, I’m sure.
