Following Malaysia’s lead, another nation takes exception to the godly brawling in Fight of Gods.

Fight of Gods Jesus

It appears that Thailand’s media is not amenable to depictions of Buddha getting a beatdown from Jesus, Zeus, or Amaterasu; Fight of Gods will soon be unavailable to purchase from Steam Early Access in Thailand. Rice Digital reached out to the game’s publisher PQube after it was revealed that Malaysia was blocking the Steam Store entirely to prevent sales of the game, and was informed that Thailand was following suit, albeit less aggressively.

“So far, Thailand has formally demanded to us that the game be removed from sale in their territory,” stated PQube public relations. The Early Access game may still be available to pick up in Thailand presently (as it takes a bit of time to process such a removal from the Steam Store) but expect Amaterasu to be put back in her cave — along with all the other tongue-in-cheek versions of popular deities on the Fight of Gods roster — in that region soon.
