Indie Game Magazine (IGM) charging developers to review their games?

Are paid reviews becoming a new practice in the world of PC indie gaming?

An article from IndieStatik about this event: http://indiestatik.com/2013...

A conversation between TotalBiscuit and the owner of IGM: https://twitter.com/Totalbi...

They wrote a hands-on article on my indie game OCEAN CITY RACING and there was no such thing.

I didn't review your particular game, but I've written unbiased, unsponsored reviews for IGM for 4 years. I hope this does not hurt the credibility of existing reviews.

As suggested in the original blog, IGM's paid review policy is less than a month old and was implemented when they changed ownership.

They've now publicly responded, admitting to doing it and intending to keep doing it: http://www.indiegamemag.com...
