    Maybe not just old... maybe also it will be less known to be targeted. o_O (This is so much my nightmares),

    I was able to reach out for one of the original authors on Facebook and one of these stolen games was removed.:2k32:

    I'm glad that we've stymied some of this plagiarist rear end in a top hat's rampant piracy (THAT'S NOT HOW PIRACY IS SUPPOSED TO WORK GODDAMNIT, YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO STEAL FROM HEARTLESS HUGE CORPORATIONS, NOT PASSIONATE INDIVIDUALS THAT PUT THEIR HEART AND SOUL INTO SOMETHING, ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE REPACKAGING IT TO SELL AS YOUR OWN; THIS GUY MAKES ME EMBARRASSED TO BE A THIEF) but I wish we could shut him down more permanently. Anyone tracked down his contact information? It might be good to cut the head off the serpent here, rather than playing catchup with the games he's shamelessly stealing.

    E: Wait, does this site have a swearing filter? Even for Bart Simpson level PG swears, like
    'a s s hole'? (I swear I'm not circumventing the swear filter for the sake of circumventing the swear filter, I just needed that word for what I was saying to make any sense, which "rear end in a top hat" wouldn't at all in this context).

    I'm ready to file lawsuits just for the sake of it if he ever tries to copy one of my games.

    This is another example of how Steam Direct turned the indie scene from bad to worse. And if that wasn't bad enough, Steam is yet to ban the developer. I had completely lost hope in their management when they introduced Direct. At this point all we can do is laugh.
    Steam is the perfect example of "making money doesn't necessarily mean you're successful."
