Infinite Falls Fires Designer & Cancels Game Over Abuse Allegation

Night In The Woods Twitter has a series of posts saying that developer Infinite Falls is cutting ties with Alec Holowka, who was coder, composer, and co-designer on Night In The Woods, following the allegation he abused ZoŽ Quinn (thanks IGN). They say they agonized over this, but take such allegations seriously. As a result they are postponing a planned limited run edition of Night In The Woods and cancelling an unannounced project. Here are the tweets with all the details:
This week, allegations of past abuse have come to light regarding Alec Holowka, who was coder, composer, and co-designer on Night In The Woods. We take such allegations seriously as a team. As a result and after some agonizing consideration, we are cutting ties with Alec.

We are cancelling a current project and postponing the Limited Run physical release. The iOS port is being handled by an outside company and supervised by Finji and will remain in development.

Weíve received a lot of emails and messages in the past few days, often very hurt and angry. Thatís also how we feel. This has been very, very tough.

I should say that Iím Scott. Hello. I run this account. I was the artist, lead animator, co-designer, co-writer, and the guy who wrote almost all of that dialogue in the game. Bethanyís here too, she was co-writer and researcher.

Much of Night In The Woods is pulled pretty directly from our lives. Bethany is from a tiny valley in central PA. Iíve lived out here in Western PA for about 20 years. The characters are us, and people weíve known. The places are ones we know.

Thousands of people have connected with Night In The Woods in a very personal way. We canít tell you how to feel about any of this. Whatever youíre feeling is valid. Your experience with art is yours. What it means to you is yours, regardless of anything else.

Going forward, Night In The Woods will be handled by Bethany and I. Weíre not sure what that all means yet. This stuff takes time.

Thanks for your support over the years. Weíre sorry to even have to say any of this. Thatís all I can say at the moment. Thank you for your patience.

How many false accusations should you consider as immoral to justify the 92% that is true? If your answer is zero then, you sir, are correct. A single false allegation is WRONG. There's no such thing as "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few." When one false accusation can destroy a person's life and reputation, and potentially lead to suicide, there's no room for false allegations.
Another thing that can lead to suicide is rape. It might sound nice to say "innocent until proven guilty" but that's exactly why the majority of sexual assaults are not even reported. You're concerned about the occasional man who might be wrongly accused but don't seem to care about the majority of actual victims who have to live with the trauma, while the offender probably goes on to abuse others too.
