From Rock Paper Shotgun: "As many good-lookin’ small-budget games are wont to, Ooblets has signed a timed exclusivity deal with the Epic Games Store in exchange for extra funding. That’s common enough that we didn’t even post about it. Also disappointingly common is the harrassment which follows, here directed at Glumberland, the tiny two-person development team behind the ‘kinda Pokémon with cute dance-offs‘ game.
The studio misjudged the tone of their announcement and that’s being used to justify some real unjustifiable garbage. What makes this especially frustrating is a response from Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney, who tweeted an unfunny joke using the Ooblets outrage as a punchline. Nice one. That’ll calm everyone down."
