Yep 100%. Game's still up on Steam, where pulling the game would actually cost them money. Steam is certainly no better than GOG in terms of caving to China
. Of course, they could be in the process of pulling their games from Steam too, but I won't be holding my breath...
It been shown numerous times, on the forum, that steam didn't pull Devotion the devs did it themselves. Unlike here on gog where gog pulled it. See the difference? The devs of Hot Tin Roof: The Cat That Wore a Fedora are pulling their game because of gog's actions involving their fellow devs.
Which is why I didn't mention Devotion. Then again, the Devotion devs seem- more or less- fine with GOG pulling the game, it's the userbase that's upset. They'd probably have pulled the game themselves if GOG asked.
OTOH, it also hasn't popped back up on Steam either, and you'd have to think they'd be keen to sell there. Wonder why it's not there? And
Steam has blocked multiple Hong Kong themed games, and
has a curated substore specifically designed to cater to the sensibilities and censorship of the CCP.
Now I know the Steam Defence Squad position is that the blocked games were all low quality asset flips- as if that stops steam selling such games which aren't
Hong Kong themed- and that Steam has to be run in compliance with local laws, I'll take it as read. You may take it as read that I regard such excuses as a pathetic apologia and just another example of people making any and every excuse for Steam that they wouldn't make for others.
