Spectrum Studio Boss in Hot Water as "Naked Sauna" as Part of Employees' Requirements Surface

Spectrum Studios is in hot water, as part of their job requirements involve "attending sauna sessions" that are "non-negotiable."

Hopefully their next game isn't about a murderer and they require employees to kill to someone to have a real understanding.

LOLOL!

But you can't develop a game with sauna elements UNLESS you've been in a sauna with a game dev...preferably naked.

I think they got commissioned the next Leisure Suite Larry .... :P

He is right you need to experience something to be able to write about it just like Tolkien threw himself in mount doom to understand Sauron and like Agatha Christie organized a death game on a remote island

Ah yes I read that news outlets were picking up on this string of facebook posts. Easy to write about some random conversation on FB without much context. Let's see how long it takes for them to talk to the devs directly for clarification. I'm sure these sites will drag this out as long as they can painting this guy as a creep. Maybe he is, maybe he isn't.

excaliburps19h ago

Have you read his replies?? He is even explaining how his rationale is correct...

Inverno19h ago

Yes I've read the replies. But if sites are gonna write about this they should do their jobs as journalist and get in contact with one of the woman who works in the studio.

Why would it only be a big deal for women? I wouldn't want to be required to sauna naked, wouldn't work at a place like that. Really strange that owner is defending this. Since the owner is involved in those communications, that's enough to write an article about. That's not to say they shouldn't reach out to them and any employees willing to talk but this is freakin' weird.

OtterX34m ago

@swedishMeatwad Right? Because if they really felt uncomfortable, they should have at the very least been allowed to wear a bikini or underwear under their towel. If the Owner demands that they get the real experience to better know the Sauna world, they should at least be offered the protection from creepers trying to look up their towel. It's same exact experience if they were slightly covered underneath. Demanding that they be nude is too much, especially if he's insinuating that they should be comfortable with removing their towel.

@Swed
It's not only a big deal for women, but do you think this would've been picked up if it were only men being pushed to go to a naked sauna? Do you think the FB post would've even been made of it were only men?

Evercade Piko Interactive Collection 4 review - Games Asylum

Games Asylum: "As Forest Gump once mumbled, “Life is a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” The same is also true for Piko Interactive collections, with Piko merely being a license holder – whenever they’re involved, you never know which games are going to appear. It’s a very different case from something like Worms Collection, or the Bitmap Brothers Collection – a five game cart with three of those being iterations of Speedball. Yeah, we’re still bitter."

I really like what evercade is doing with these compilation carts. I cant quite get behind their new alpha tabletop units though... maybe they will grow on me.

Returnal was fantastic, and I'm looking forward to seeing what these folks create with Sony in the future.

Ithas been my favorite experience of this generation so far I think. Can't wait to see what Housemarque is working on now.

They make some fun arcade styles games. Returnal is one of the best games so far this generation. I wonder what is next

amobius2d ago

returnal is easily one of the most underrated games this gen. a lot of people with ps5s dont know it exists.
