Edge of Space publisher, Reverb, holds donation hostage in marketing stunt

Major publishers have been known to pull some jaw-droppingly asinine marketing stunts when faced with the pressure of insuring that the product which they have invested millions into sells well. Even more frightening, perhaps, is the prospect of being a small publisher and trying to accomplish that same task except with a smaller soap box.

A few press releases from Reverb - publisher of the upcoming Edge of Space - have been making the rounds recently, and they certainly don't live up to Reverb's self-proclaimed standard of "assur[ing] that the game will have the proper public relations and marketing campaign supporting the game and will be presented to the first parties in a clear and well thought out manner to be considered for additional launch support."

At least they were planning on donating anyway (allegedly at least)
