The option for nudity in indie hit Papers Please has been restored after what Apple described as a misunderstanding”.
Just talked to Apple,” developer Lucas Pope said on Twitter. The initial rejection for porn was a misunderstanding on their part. They suggested I resubmit with the nudity option.”
He later added: The Papers Please nudity-restoring update was quickly approved by Apple and should appear soon.”
News of the content block emerged last week.
The iPad version has no full nudity option for the search scanner photos. Apple rejected that build for containing ‘pornographic content',” Pope said. I confirmed with the reviewer that it would likely pass without the nudity. Removed it, resubmitted, and it was accepted today.
The original game has a no-nudity option so it's not a considerable clash. Losing nudity isn't too severe imo. The game has other content I expected to cause trouble that didn't, so there's some relief.”
