GUISE OF THE WOLF Developers Attempt To Silence Criticism

Read the article in full on this is simply a preview.

In yet another example of how creators can abuse their power to choke out any negative criticism, FUN Creators has begun silencing anyone who fails to speak positively about their products. Following the same mistakes which led to the PR nightmares surrounding Hammerpoint Interactive, the developer has been performing blanket sweeps on YouTube and their Steam forums. These have resulted in videos being flagged and taken down thanks to false copyright strikes, and accounts banned under the justification that any criticism was not valid.

Looking at the Steam Greenlight page of their game Guise of the Wolf, reveals multiple comments accusing them of deleting posts and even screenshots displaying acts of censorship.

  1. Currently they've posted about why they took down any criticism, apparently criticism goes against their community beliefs/values.
    Whatever community that is I don't want to be a part of it.
