Rock Simulator 2014
Rock Simulator Controversy
July 5 - Strange Panther
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.
