Phobia Game Studio’s Carrion, out today for Switch, Xbox One, and PC, is a nifty “reverse horror” game in which players control a terrifying alien monster stalking a remote science outpost. Its Switch icon is a pretty gory-looking vagina suspended by meaty tentacles. It’s due to be changed soon.

To be fair, the star of Carrion is a tentacled beast with a gaping maw at its centre, ready to tear screaming humans apart with its gnashing teeth. Check out the creature in the trailer below. The icon is almost spot-on.

“Almost,” I say, because the Switch icon lacks the toothy bits. Maybe they are hidden and only pop out at specific times. Here is the uncensored version of the icon.

I reached out to PR for publisher Devolver Digital, who said that a new, updated icon is already under review for the Switch version of Carrion. I am not sure how that makes me feel.
