Now Playing Tracks

One developer targeted this week (a phrase I have to use because multiple developers were targeted this week) was Fez creator Phil Fish, whose website was taken down, gigabytes of personal information (including banking details and emails) leaked, and Twitter accounts hacked. Fish has always been a volatile personality, but his tweets prior to shutting down his Twitter paint a particularly dismal picture of the gaming community:

this is videogames. this is what i get. this is unacceptable. this is not okay. terrorist. never again, you hear me? never again. this is videogames. this is your audience. to every aspiring game developer out there: don’t. give up. it’s not worth it. nothing is worth this. give up on your dreams. they are actually nightmares. just don’t do it. RUN AWAY. RUN AWAY. i would like to announce that POLYTRON and the FEZ IP are now for sale. no reasonable offer will be turned down. i am done. i want out. […] you should all be ashamed.

Fish’s “public execution” was served in retaliation for his support of Depression Quest developer Zoe Quinn.

Time was of the essence.

DM: The bookcase swings open to reveal a dark stairway.

Human Artificer: Guys, we should go slowly. There might be traps.

Warforged Knight: I shove the sac of organs aside and throw myself down the stairs in an attempt to set off any traps.

DM: You arrive at the bottom of the stairs only a little worse for wear. No traps have been set off.

Warforged Knight: IT IS SAFE TO PROCEED MY FLESHY MEATSACK COMPANIONS!
