INFESTATION: SURVIVOR STORIES Developer Censors YouTube Parody

Read the article in full on http://www.starburstmagazine.com/ this is simply a preview.


We’ve seen a lot of controversy in recent years when it comes to developers trying to shut down negative opinions surrounding their game. We’ve seen even more efforts of the YouTube Copyright System being abused by developers for their own needs. However, what we’ve not seen in recent years is a video games developer apparently so hell-bent upon committing every possible kind of PR suicide.

Hammerpoint Interactive, developer of Infestation: Survivor Stories (better known as The Thing Previously Called The War Z) has become infamous in video game circles for poor treatment and even outright breaking laws. From outright lying about the game’s content to the point it was briefly removed from Steam to taking art from The Walking Dead, not to mention stealing a terms of service from League of Legends, the studio has managed to commit countless sins in a very short period of time.
