A developer releasing one of their older games for free? I don't know anything about Derek, his company, or his games but any time someone is willing to release their work for free I want to thank them.
Dunno why so many are being hateful here. You don't like the quality of the product then don't play it! I can see why a small independent developer would be passionate and defensive about their work.
Ask yourselves when was the last time you tried to make a game and then gave it away? I bet you too would be steamed if a bunch of assclowns who never produced anything in their lives ganged up because they smelt blood.
