2021 is beginning like 2020 ended - with Cyberpunk stories! Only this time, CD Projekt Red's now-(in)famous Cyberpunk 2077 launch is not at issue, but instead it is the Nintendo Switch launch of a little known title called "Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story".

What has caused a game which was already released (on PC) five months ago to find itself in such a large spotlight?

Well, at least according to the game's publisher, Top Hat Studios, it's the calls to censor the company's own...rather large set of spotlights.

Let's dive in.

We're always against censorship, but have to question "Sense"-orship...in Virtual Legality.
