The issue is due to the music
https://alexmauer.bandcamp.com/album/overdrive

"Overdrive was originally going to be the soundtrack for a video game called "Starr Mazer: DSP". The developer of the game, Imagos Softworks, and publisher, AGM Playism, have failed to sign a license agreement for permission to use this music and are currently using it in violation of the copyright. Please do not support "Starr Mazer: DSP".

If you have already purchased a copy of "Starr Mazer: DSP", you may want to take a stand against copyright violation by asking the Steam store for a refund.

Valve, the owner of the Steam store, has been notified and chosen to side with the copyright violators.

Thank you.

The devs cannot come to an agreement with the music creator who was awesome. I gues maybe not easy to work with though or maybe the issues were on the other side of the table. In any case, for me the music was the CORE of this game and without it, it is dead to me. :(
Yeah Alex Mauer is a criminal now. Pathetic.
Just for clarification Alex according to the contract she signed was a contracted composer meaning she was contracted to produce the sound score (including SFX) and that's it. Also in the contract she signed it clearly states any works or IP developed for that game and under contract is the copyright of Imagos Software NOT Alex Mauer so understand that if she has issued a DMCA strike against you for any content that includes the music she composed UNDER CONTRACT it is an illegal action and she has by United States legal definition committed perjury which you can file charges against her for in your state, and I strongly encourage you to do so ASAP.

Do you have this contract? I've seen only a single snippet of it but I'd personally like to see the thing in its entirety before demonizing Alex for her very poor choice in actions.

You can easily obtain a copy of the contract you just gotta put the bait out there make or Repost a video with Imagos Software's soundtrack ( not the property of Alex by any stretch) and when she slaps you with a ILLEGAL DMCA takedown you can email them for a copy.

Ive seen it , and Alex is claiming it's a made up thing.
" I can't read something that never existed "

so that's a thing.

Every youtuber caught up in this has or will have a copy of her contract. She has no legal right to the music, all you need to read is the "ownership" and "work for hire" sections; she has no right the music full stop. Anything else is between her and starr mazer and thus youtubers are in the clear.

Just a heads up - Alex has been forwarding every single person's e-mails they sent to her, to me.
I didn't ask for them,she's just been sending it of her own accord, even with me telling her nto to send personal stuff.

I'm not intersted in it lol.

What a creep. She sent me a pretend invoice too as if it had any legal weight.

I wouldn't have known about the game if not for the drama. Now I might buy it when it comes back (and shows up on a sale).
So even valve sided against Alex? Jeez. Maybe there's something not being told about what really happened. If even Valve decided that alex is in the wrong on top of the person targeting people that uploaded videos of the game on YT for no reason.

im pretty sure the devs took the game down to remove the music as a legal precaution.

But they said that they were legally on the right? maybe alex has something that wasn't paid to him, but honestly i would fall hard for the side of the developer. Maybe they pulled the game off to not get more youtubers DMCA'd for some personal vendetta.
The devs already removed everything Alex Mauer did for the game but he's still at it with the stupidities
