Rock Simulator 2014
Rock Simulator Controversy

Hi everyone!

For the past few days, there has been controvery over the legitimency of Rock Simulator. Before we start this discussion, I assure you the game is still under development by the original team and all money donated is going towards it.

When I first started this project, I was doing it solo. I brought on a few 3d modelers and other staff to help out with the game. One of the staff was Arie2929. I hired Arie to help out with the community, to do things such as update Facebook and Twitter pages, along with make a trailer. Soon after him joining the team, it immediatly became clear that he did not have the right intentions. Keep in mind that we hired him to manage social media. He wanted to become co-owner of the company. If I let him do this, all of the other staff who were hired before him would feel that it is unfair. Because of this, along with immaturity, we decided in a conference with other staff that we should let him go.

Now here is where we stand. Arie has "stolen" the game and is claming he is the original creator. This is entirely untrue. I hold Copyright for this game and its contents.

Bascially, without sounding too unprofessional, he is upset that we let him go from the team, so he wants to retaliate.

We are in contact with Steam and we are working with them to remove the other Rock Simulator from greenlight (it is now removed for breaking Steam ToS),along with multiple videos he has made to retaliate as they contain Copyrighted content.

Thanks for the support, and rest assured that your money is going to the right place and that the game is still under development.

@Jman @DisturbedOne "we hired arie" arie was his good friend i doubt you "hired" him due to he is your friend. "unprofessional" i've seen enough drama to see where this is going "So he wants to retaliate" You have known him ryan just why."Soon after him joining the team, it immediatly became clear that he did not have the right intentions" Exactly how? As I said you had known arie. "Because of this, along with immaturity, we decided to conference with other staff that we should let him go" What kind of immaturity? I saw pictures about what happened from researching and what happened to arie. I saw the picture clearly real about what happened and why is arie blocked. It seems to me that you would fired him if he would have explained to arie. As i said 2 times you were his friend YOU KNOW him you made LIES about him (Atleast in my perspective and this is why im explaining). I have not broke any rules on commenting

Stop trying to push this game. This is Mountain 2.0.

Sounds more believable than Arie's side.

dude, you are making the rock simulator. This is kind of a shame in itself....

This whole situation is shady, end of story, it's he said, he said. You both lose at the end of the day. Everyone can move on now.

Please, please, PLEASE re-upload the trailer video set to Biggie Smalls/Thomas the Tank Engine. It was my favourite YouTube video of all time. Now it is gone. Please upload again.
By the way, love the concept, will buy :)

Legitimacy? Ok, then tell me, is this game legitimate, or is a troll submission by a troll developer?

That sounds a lot more plausible than the story that he's told in his video.

I wish you luck with your company! :D

Right. He was an employee that we let go, and he wanted to retaliate so he made ridiculous claims.
