Gamesindustry.biz has also recently wrote an article on the matter and kindly cited us for information, predominitely in this post of additional examples of this happening: https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2020-06-15-the-chicanery-of-penguin-cretins

Let's of course though not forget to show support for Connor of MMOFallout for sourcing the information in the first place: https://twitter.com/mmofallout

FPS Creator Reloaded also did this

FPS Creator Reloaded ---> GameGuru: The Easy Game Maker ---> GameGuru: Game Making For Everyone ---> GameGuru Classic (obliviously pretending that GameGuru is a classic)
Each time, standarts have been downgraded, from professional engine in similiar vein to Godot to, well, look at games on Steam, that was made with it, that will give an idea.

Not that there's much preventing under-18s from buying porn on Steam other than the honor system, but giving porn to who didn't seek it out in the first place, potentially downloading it to their computer without their knowledge if they had the original game installed and left the default automatic updates enabled, especially when you don't know if they're an adult, is very yikes.

Seems like Tale of Fortune would be the most concerning for Valve in terms of legal liability -- that you can sell a game without an age gate and let 13-17-year-olds buy it, then replace it with porn.

Great job! The only way to force Valve (or any corp) to reform is to demonstrate that they're breaking the law. This is how the refund policy implementation came to life, for example. Ought to work.
