This scam artist was finally caught
There is no way this dev can make up any more excuses where he claims he's not a scam artist.

-He made the first level impossible
-He claimed a "bug" was responsible for deleting the other levels. He then said he would make a patch that would add the levels back in but that should've been done in a day and it's been a suspiciously longer time for a simple patch to come out
-He said there are hints to beat the first level on the trading cards. There actually isn't and you need to play the game for more than 2 hours to receive trading cards.

Even after we provide evidence that the other levels don't exist, he continues make up excuses and then claims to try and add the levels back in however levels being deleted is a major bug and you need to fix that immediately or give everyone refunds for the game. It's been about a week since he made that announcement and people still claim that the other level do not exist and then the dev says he's sick. I don't think he sick, I think he's only saying that because he's trying to make the other 7 levels because he didn't think someone would look through the code. Well the game's gone from steam so this scam artist can't cover his tracks by adding in the 7 other levels and claim they were there all along.

Did anyone ever go as far as running the level files through a file comparison program[en.wikipedia.org] to determine if the level files that are the same size are actually identical? It's probably all moot by now, and I'm not trying to dispute anything that's been accused, but this whole mess is interesting to me and no one I've seen seems to have thought of looking at the files in a hex editor or something.

Actually the person who looked through the files was able to run each level. By doing this, he was able see that level's 5-11 were all chapter 1. Level's 1-4 were the intro screens, level 0 was an unused intro screen and level 12 was the pause menu. Chapter 2 or any of the other chapters was nowhere to be found. He even looked further by searching for keywords hidden in the files. He searched "chapter 1" and the word was found in level's 5-11. He then searched "chapter 2" and the word was not found anywhere in the game. He looked even further by finding a file that said "loaded chapter 1". The other files were just files for chapter 1. The dev claimed chapter 2 was set in a mine but he found no files for a mine and there were no files that said "loaded chapter 1". The only files he found were for the assets in chapter 1 and the other chapters did not exist.

The dev said that a bug fix removed all the other chapters and he said he would add them back in but he should've done that an hour after he posted the announcement. The reason he waited so long is because he's actually making the other levels and I think he only said he was sick do buy him some time to make these other chapters and then add them in and claim that they were always in the game when in fact they never were. He is a scam artist but he's not a very good one. All he had to do was upload a video of himself beating the first level but he never did that.

I hope someone checks his other game out too. Or is there something already?
