It gets worse if this turns out to be true

It is a shame how some indie developers ruin it for everyone else

This seems to have become standard practice since publishers started using metacritic scores as a measure of a game's success and any bonuses they pay out. Devs are tipping the scale, greatly compromising themselves and their work.

It seems unfair mostly to the people that funded this trash of a game.

Indie games are now becoming profit games just like regular mega games....

I buy and play indie because it's usually fresh perspective and they take chances to give us new games that actually represent art of game play and imaging.

This is just the lowest form of low and I would never recommend this game to any1 nor would I ever accept a resume from any of these devs.

Thanks RIP Wild Games Studio.

Still one Garry's game stand, and it's Garry's mod not incident.

This is sad and there's even two accounts that typed the same comment like they were quickly trying to balance the rating. Not only is it done for more people to try it out based on score but they also admit they created a failure. I know other studios that used the same tactic and it's a small cancer to gaming, resulting in crappy games giving the illusion that at least it's mediocre "hate it or love it" type of game but it's much worse than that.

I noticed that two. Two of these positive reviews have wording that is oddly similar, it can't just be coincidence.

I haven't read asll of them so I don't know if they're all like that.

Edit: I just checked and there are multiple positive reviews that are all praticcally the same. Like there were written by the same person on different accounts.
