State of Decay's good to go in Australia with R18+ rating

Drugs? No, they're vitamins!

The second time's a charm for Undead Labs as State of Decay was just approved by the Australian Classification Board upon being resubmitted. After failing the first go-round, the Board awarded the zombie survival simulator an R18+ classification -- the newest and highest rating an Australian game can receive.

Undead needed to get a bit cheeky to eek past the strict Aussie videogames ratings assignors. State of Decay was originally refused classification because it rewarded drug use. For the second submission, the drugs were changed to "vitamins," and just like that, Australia's on board.

Seeing how State of Decay is Xbox Live's fastest-selling original Arcade game of all time, Microsoft's probably pretty thrilled that it's available on another continent. Now, if it could just find a way to breach Antarctica and get some of that sweet penguin cash.
