According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence
Parents should be wary of Wayward's mature rating before picking this game up for the kids. This is a violent game, with lots of monsters, blood, gore, and occult overtones. While the game has an option for turning off the blood, the rest of the content is still largely inappropriate for kids.
Fans of the first game will certainly want to check out this new incarnation of the series. It doesn't play all that differently from the first title, but the things that made that game interesting are all present and accounted for here.
Casual gamers are probably best served by taking a "rent first" approach. Wayward is a relatively short game despite the extra difficulty modes, and its simplistic gameplay will definitely turn some players off.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers won't get much enjoyment out of Wayward. None of the game's dialogue is subtitled, and even a look through the audio options didn't turn up a feature to turn subtitles on.
