I am interested in seeing this story develop. Looks pretty bad, at the moment.

Wait a minute,

This game was launched on Amazon last year and Apple's App store at the beginning of the summer. How is it this is only getting reported just now?

This should have been called out the moment this hit Amazon's digital store

Edit- if anyone wants the game, better buy it soon, because lord only knows what companies may press legal action for it to be taken down now

Hello! I'm the author of the article here.

I honestly only just discovered this game when I was looking at the new releases on the PlayStation Store yesterday. The only reason I picked up that something was super fishy was because the trailer on the PSN uses the Ori and the Blind Forest music. As far as I can tell, the PSN trailer is the only one that uses the Ori soundtrack.

Sadly, as much as I'd love to, there's simply not enough time in the day and not enough of us to go around and check every single release on every single store. There's so many video games being released in one day alone that it's just not possible. Beyond that, I don't own a Mac to look at Apple's Mac store, and I almost exclusively console game except for the rare Steam game, so I'd never see an Amazon digital PC-only release.

I do agree it should have been called out the moment it hit the very first store, but we just don't have enough time to check everything.

I promise you this is not a secret plot to make the PSN look bad. Frankly, I like my PlayStation too much to want Sony to go under (though I do have some issues with the PSN. Name switching when? And why are trailers and screenshots so difficult to access since the store redesign?) I only noticed it by sheer chance and I saw no one else had reported on it, so I knew I had something important.

Hopefully that explains why it just became a thing today.

Ah I get you. That makes sense.

At least for once we get an independent author without an ulterior motive or deception behind his/her article. So I'm sorry for even implying such.
