Rimworld has been lifted in Australia and back on Steam

Australians can now legally buy RimWorld again, with the Australian Classification Board overturning its original “denied classification” rating following a review of the application.

The space colony sim has been happily on Steam in Australia since it launched in Early Access in 2013, but an upcoming console port appears to be the reason it’s on the Classification Board website. It was rejected for classification in February because the game deals with “sex, substance abuse or addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or objectionable or repugnant phenomena that violate the manners generally accepted by moral, decent and reasonable adults. ”
