MAJOR SPOILER Near the end of the game, when the player character gets hungry, instead of feeding on food/a rat as she previously had, she kills one of the child/people-like characters you find hiding along the way. At the end of the game she feeds on the final antagonist once you have defeated her, and then walk out of the ship/prison seeming to suck out the life force of the monsters on the ship as you go.

- In the Forest gameplay demo, the Player encounters piles of innards which may belong to animals.

- It is possible to find a dead animal in a trap if you go down a tunnel in the forest, but this is avoidable.

- In the Hunter's shack there is a deer head mounted on the wall.

- The Hunter is implied to be preparing the remains of an animal for taxidermy.

- Animal trapping is a strong theme.

At the end of Chapter 2 the antagonists arms are cut off (it is shown on screen but isn’t overly bloody/gory).
The enemies in Chapter 3 use knives to cut meat, you need to grind meat in order to complete a puzzle a few rooms in but it isn’t violent. However in the same chapter you need to grind up a body bag in order to complete the puzzle.

Cannibalism is implied, as the Guests in the game are theorised to be eating the remains of previous Guests. The Player will also be eaten by the Guests if caught, and if caught by one of the Twin Chefs in the Kitchen, they will be thrown into an oven or soup pot, cut on a chopping board etc.

There are chef characters and at some points they do seem to vomit, all of it is off camera and no accual vomit or vomiting person is able to be seen, only from the back. The only disturbing part about it is the noise that comes with the animation of them leaning down, it may be quite triggering to someone with emetophobia!

The Guests onboard obsessively eat and do not appear to care for anything else. The Player's character also experiences extreme and unhuman bouts of hunger throughout the game. The cause for both is unclear. Bad relationships with food are a prominent theme in the game.

There are no explicitly minority characters in the game.

It is worth noting that some of the enemies/monsters in the 4th chapter have hooked noses and are cannibals, which could be read as use of antisemitic imagery.

The DLC has a very dark ending, and while the main game ends well for the main character it is far from happy.

One of the Twin Chefs appears to be chopping at a body with a cleaver in the Guest area towards the end of the game. This scene is hidden behind a screen but you can see the silhouettes and hear chopping noises.

In the DLC there is an enemy which drags the main character down into water and drowns them if you are not quick enough. There is a risk of this happening multiple times.

The Hunter carries a gun and uses it to shoot at the Player as they try to run away.
