A few weeks ago, infamous shovelware developer Digital Homicide tried to sue anonymous Steam users over negative reviews, often referring to these users as a “hate and harassment group,”. Now, the developer is blaming everyone else for their business being “destroyed”.
In a motion to dismiss filed last week, Digital Homicide said that their business had been “destroyed,” rendering them unable to continue pursuing the suit. On Friday, it was approved.
Digital Homicide has long had a history of hiding behind poor excuses for shoddy behavior. From flooding Steam services with low-quality games, to berating and attacking users for not liking said bad games. They’re still apparently attempting to sue game critic Jim Sterling, although that may be about to end as well.
Digital Homicide spoke with Gaming site Techraptor in an interview in which they admitted to giving up on the games industry, for now at least.
Regardless, it sounds like Digital Homicide is out of the games business. “As far as Digital Homicide? It’s destroyed,” said Romine. “It’s been stomped into the ground from a thousand directions and use is discontinued. I’m going back into the work force and watching what’s really going on.”
It’s hard to feel anything but contempt for Digital Homicide. The company has often hidden behind it’s false consumer advocacy claims to dismiss criticism. The tone of their words and actions make it feel like the games industry is better off without them.
