Virtual reality, so real it’s indistinguishable from real life. Zombies, Nazis, Knights in armour - the game has it all.
After some real-world violent crimes are linked to gamers, the Ministry of Internal Affairs creates a new department, “C”, whose agents are censors. They must play the games and try to exceed the permitted level of violence. But two of them become rivals and the lines between the real and game worlds blur.
This dark cyberpunk story is as much about the fear that computers will do our thinking for us as the dangers posed by the people who develop and control them.
Censor’s director says, “As we develop this tech, should censorship become more important? Sci-fi is not about tomorrow. It is about today”
Censor makes Hardcore Henry look like a Disney film and slams its message down your throat!
