As a quick primer, back in 2019, Red Candle Games came under Steam users who purchased the game discovered an in-game poster that said “Xi Jinping Winnie-the-Pooh moron”. For context, Xi Jinping became the subject of a massive meme then, when the internet made comparisons between the man’s shape and size and the beloved character of English author, A. A. Milne.
Naturally, the Chinese government didn’t find this comparison between its leader and a teddy bear funny, and soon issued a ban on all content that mentioned or contained mentions of Winnie the Pooh. Unsurprisingly as well, the country moved to ban Disney’s Christopher Robin, which also premiered in 2019.
Devotion is currently selling for US$16.99 (~RM70) for the base game, while a bundle including the game’s soundtrack is also available for US$20.68 (~RM85).
