Thank you for informing but i prefer to keep that trash out of my library.
You'd prefer not to get PhilF over your precious games? :P
Got a laugh out of me.
I'm getting downvoted over this, so some serious talk now: I'd like some kind of statement from someone at Polytron. I'd like some conclisive confirmation, that this game is in fact NOT getting pulled over a fairly innocuous tweet gog made on an entirely unrelated game, a tweet that gog has both taken down and apologised for.
Am I reading too much into this? Or are the people at Polytron really THAT incredibly petty?
I certainly hope it wasn't because of the tweet. That would be rather pathetic, especially since GOG removed it and apologized (plus it was probably some marketing intern that posted it anyway). If they removed the game because of that... good lord, talk about crazy.
I think it might well be. Phil Fish was a somewhat notable figure involved during the Gamergate controversy. Maybe he saw the backlash and thought ill of GoG's audience or consumerbase, probably thought there were too many "nasty gamergaters" or something along those lines.
That's my speculation at least. I don't know if that is necessarily the reason but I'm willing to stake money on the fact of it having to do with recent events at the very least.
For reference, here's some of Phil Fish's notable actions when he either doesn't like someone's opinions, viewpoints, or feels they don't go far enough in attacking people he doesn't like or just flat out calling gamers and his customers garbage: https://archive.fo/A4lCq https://archive.fo/hjXEr https://archive.fo/510Ma https://archive.fo/UPiFW https://archive.fo/RfQJA
And here's something exceptionally sketchy from him: https://archive.fo/9FYNy
