The makers of the Lego mobile game mobile app said the app was “not intended to be a platform for discussing gay relationships.”
The game, released in November and later re-released in December, was designed to show people how to build Lego sets.
Its creators said they wanted to “create a space for conversations about gay relationships” but “not to condone or promote the sexual acts involved.”
The company’s vice president of communications, Dan Stacey, said in a statement: “As a developer and publisher, we are concerned about the inclusion of content that might be deemed harmful, and are working with the developers to ensure that it does not occur.”
The developers said in an interview with the BBC that they are “not aware of any issues in the app with regard to sexual orientation, gender identity or any other specific issues.”
“We believe the app is designed to help people find the parts they need, but we are not actively seeking out LGBT individuals to share their experiences or stories with.”
We hope this app will be of benefit to all gamers, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, and is not an outlet for individuals to openly express their feelings and views.
“The BBC contacted the makers of Lego Mobile, but they did not respond to a request for comment.
