Steam Greenlight campaign
has returned, not long after it
was ended by Valve
, who said at the
time: "Based on what we've seen on Greenlight we would not publish Hatred on
Steam. As such we'll be taking it down." Polish developer Destructive Creations'
of this isometric shooter admitted
its themes are "disturbing," and this sparked controversy from the start. The
Steam Community forums
are filled with posts about the game's prospects
being of being published, many expressing outrage that it exists, and many other
expressing outrage at attempts to get it quashed. According to Destructive
Creations, they received the following apologetic explanation from Valve's Gabe
Yesterday I heard that we were taking Hatred down from Greenlight. Since I
wasn’t up to speed, I asked around internally to find out why we had done that.
It turns out that it wasn’t a good decision, and we’ll be putting Hatred back
up. My apologies to you and your team. Steam is about creating tools for content
creators and customers.
Good luck with your game.
