The game will be released on Friday and allows parents to adjust the language and conversations based around the Pet Detective character. There is a long tradition of game censorship in titles such as Infocom's Leather Godesses of Phobos text adventure, and Sierra's Phantasmagoria.
Ace Ventura comes out just a few weeks after the title Schoolyard Slaughter caused a media stir. The game, whose object is to gun down children as they cross a playground, has been out for a couple of years but the recent Dunblane incident raised its profile.
