I do not get why the title screen is offensive...?!

Because of the red sign in the title screen.
The picture is from the video.

I know, you understand german. So here something from Wikipedia, because I can`t translate something like this:

"Auch in Teilen der Schwarzen Szene wird dieses Kreuz verwendet, oft allerdings als Provokation, als Zeichen fr die Ablehnung der Kirchen als Organisationen oder die Ablehnung des Christentums an sich..."

Won't be buying this game.  Title screen is offensive.

You can buy this version if you prefer.
A limited run was released.

I think games are a type of art, just like books, music or movies

That's the way I see it too.

I will buy it.

This concerns the inverted cross. I've always been a horror movie fan, the first thing I remember collecting was horror comic. Anyway, what is normal for me may not be for the other. Reviewing my concepts a little, I do not particularly play "Hunting Games", I think different people and cultures may be sensitive to different things. Maybe we have to be more careful.

10 copies of the "unoffensive title version" Amityville are released.
Numbers 41 to 50 for Odyssey2.
The inverted cross doesn't appear on the title screen and in the manual.

 Cool

But it were better he would wrote:

"Find Amityville on videopac.fr" and not "Find Amityville on eBay, eBayUK, Amazon, Youtube."
