Abandoned studio thanks Kojima for ‘addressing conspiracy theories openly’

From VGC: "Blue Box Game Studios, the developer behind the horror game Abandoned, has thanked Hideo Kojima for publicly addressing long-running speculation that he’s involved in the vapourware project.

Earlier this week Kojima broke his silence about being linked to the project on his podcast, Brain Structure, in an attempt to end months of rumours that the Metal Gear creator was the secret mastermind behind the controversial game.

“We want to thank @Kojima_Hideo for addressing the conspiracies openly,” Blue Box tweeted. “It has been a burden and not cool for both fans and developers. We hope everyone can close this for good.”"

Oh yes, a "burden". Is that why you did little to no disputing yourself?

SinisterKieran616d ago

Not true in the slightest, on more then one occasion, they said they weren’t involved. This is a tweet in 2021. “ We wanted to set things straight. We have no relations with Konami. Silent Hill is owned by Konami. We do not have any relations with Hideo Kojima. It was never our intention to tease the name as Silent Hill. We sincerely apologize for this.”
And they kept addressing this rumour over and over. This is the fans fault

Yep you're right, it's all the fans fault and absolutely not Hasan Kahraman's own doing at all. He's the victim here and a stand up guy. Not even close to being a con artist or opportunist.

CS7616d ago

So what about posting a blurry photo of a guy in a eye patch while people think your game is connected to Kojima?

EvertonFC616d ago

Wasn't they like 1 year late with that reply ?

SinisterKieran616d ago

So did or did they not say they weren’t connected to kojima in any way? Because it seems clear as day that they said they weren’t. Kinda seems like dumbasses wanted there to be a connection.

Thanking him for resolving a conspiracy that they basically encouraged and rode for as long as they could. How nice of them.

Ank666616d ago

Kojima again speaking about the game & the studio just to revive the debate when no one is even talking about it anymore is yet again a fishy scenario & action.

1nsomniac616d ago

Are you serious!? That was almost a year after they created the conspiracy theory themselves, intentionally numerous times trying to promote that it was linked. They openly used him as a marketing tool to a point I’m surprised they haven’t been sued. I would imagine there has been some form of talks between solicitors at some point. Which is maybe why it’s now cancelled.

porkChop616d ago

Do yourself a favor and actually educate yourself on what really happened.

Moe-Gunz616d ago

Should be more concerned about their lack of follow through with what they said they'll release.

I wish they would have resurrected and used the Nintendo Power name. I had almost every issue starting from around Mario 3 forward, and at one time had Nintendo Power foldout posters as an upper border on the wall, circling my entire room.

PRIMORDUS1d 2h ago (Edited 1d 2h ago )

I also have well, every issue of Nintendo Power and also some Fun Club Issues before it transformed into Nintendo Power. They are all stacked in a plastic tote lol. Most have probably turned yellow by now. If you would like the whole collection as a torrent there is one here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Da... Torrent magnet link.

Nintendo power name instead would've been cool
