We Dare is an adult-oriented party video game developed by Ubisoft, for the Wii and PlayStation 3 (PS3) gaming systems. It is marketed as a "sexy, quirky, party game" and involves kissing, striptease and spanking. However reviewers in countries where the game is available have noted that the game is in fact a relatively tame party game compilation with only very mild sexual connotations.
The Pan European Game Information (PEGI) and Australian Classification Board (ACB) have drawn criticism by implying that the game is suitable for children (despite being marketed to adults): As the boards can only classify the game content, not what the players may be doing, PEGI rated the game a 12, while the ACB gave it an even more lenient PG rating. Months later, the PG rating given in Australia was reviewed but retained.
The game's YouTube trailer has since been blocked from viewing by Ubisoft, and US release plans were shelved. This was followed by a cancellation of the UK release, citing "[negative] public reaction".
