has word that developer Digital Homicide is suing 100 Steam users
over negative reviews, noting that
video from SidAlpha
has the details. If this doesn't sound weird enough to
start with, the fact that these users are being sued for $18 million might start
the crazy phone ringing. Our editorializing may not be legally sound, as a judge
has actually granted a subpoena for early discovery of the identity of these
users. TechRaptor also notes the developer is also involved in a lawsuit with
instigator Jim Sterling for being too Jim Sterling. The article also says the
game's 18 titles on Steam were generally poorly reviewed shovelware, but you'll
have to take their word for it, as Valve has responded to the legal action by
ending their relationship with Digital Homicide and dropping all their games
from the service.
They quote Valve's Doug Lombardi
, who explains, "Valve has stopped doing
business with Digital Homicide for being hostile to Steam customers."
