Op Ed

Ooblets Developer - Regarding what’s been happening. Thanks GamesIndustry.biz.
"A game being available on one platform or the other, someone’s tone, or them calling you entitled is not enough to justify a harassment campaign targeting two indie game developers, or anyone for that matter. In fact, there’s little justification to ever participate in that kind of movement. These mobs represent the worst manifestation of human psychology and social behavior: Our urge to attack weaker outgroups, to let group mentality justify our actions, and to delight in violence and anger.

I hope that laying all this out helps in some way to lessen what pain is brought against whoever the next targets are, because we sadly know there will be many. You should have opinions, disagree with things, make arguments, but don’t try to ruin people’s lives or jump on the bandwagon when it’s happening.

What happened to us is the result of people forgetting their humanity for the sake of participating in video game drama. Please have a little perspective before letting your mild annoyance lead to deeply hurting a fellow human being."

What a clueless dingbat.
I don't get it. The worst thing you could find to cite there is "nobody owes you the game", and meanwhile the dev is being called a f----- n----- k---, a piece of shit, and told to kill himself. And you're suggesting it's somehow his fault? Don't stir the angry gamer nest!
