These lot are actually unbelievable...

DO NOT BUY! This game is a scam... how do I know? I made it.

My name is TJ ATOMICA, and I am the original creator of a mod called A Superman Style Flight Experience (UE5) which I uploaded to Itch.io for free earlier this year.

On Wednesday morning (2nd Novemeber) I was made aware of this game being sold on Steam that uses the Superman Demo mod I made earlier this year. I put it on Itch.io for free for people to enjoy mainly as a proof of concept and now this "Dev" has downloaded it, somehow got it through Steam certification, and is selling it to people in the Steam Community.

Apart from being a huge scam and taking people's money, they are making false claims about me and deleting messages from others warning of the scam. I have personally been blocked from the discussion/community page for trying to warn others as the Original Creator, and they actively have deleted several discussion threads from other people and myself warning of the malicious nature of this project.

In response to another negative review, they claim I used to work with them, this is a lie, I have no no idea who they are.
They claim to have made this game... also a lie.
They claim I am getting upset cause I want money??? LOL WHAT? Even though It's free else where? Ok...

I thought it's plausible they could have made this, after all, I myself used a bunch of Marketplace assets to build the mod.
However a huge thing that stuck out to me was how every colour of the character was the same, the body shape and globe and boot choices. Also, I am yet to see another person figure out the cape physics like I did, it was hard work to make it work in the Matrix Awakens demo because Epic disabled the system. Something I know most people have not figured out... even other mod videos on Youtube show the same character creator without the cape because of the difficulty getting the cape working.
To be safe, I bought this game... my game, to absolutely confirm it was my project, and I have confirmed this just now when I played it, and found the opening level I created from scratch WITH A MESSAGE FROM ME, explaining to players how the simple demo works and offers two doors to walk through. This 100% confirmed to me this project was the one I made and this developer just downloaded, stole, and passed this work off as their own.

I made this demo myself months ago as a proof of concept, using mostly free assets, and several YouTube videos and reviews will confirm this, and I was always open and honest about it...

The important part here is while yes, it is using free marketplace assets from the Unreal Marketplace, it was still my work to put the demo together and make it available for people to play as a functioning build.

My issue comes from them taking this demo and then selling it to people and making claims that are simply impossible. All the features they say they will add is impossible because they don't have the source code or the Unreal Project, they just downloaded the build of my itch page and uploaded it to steam, which means they can't change or make any of the features they claim.

It's the morality that is the biggest issue here. If they took it and put it on Steam for free, I wouldn't have really cared, but they are selling it, making wild claims, taking people's money, using pure lies, and dragging my name through the mud in the process.

I am starting to get abusive messages from people about it because naturally it comes back to me as the original creator, and they think I am the scammer... I just want it taken down and for them to stop making money of this blatant lie.

I have filed a DMCA take-down through Steam, but they are yet to do anything, and I have reported it. How it got through certification at all is completely beyond me...
Since this Dev banned me from the discussion thread, I felt buying the game and leaving a review they can't delete (I hope), was my only other option to warn, and protect people from this scam.

Yes I spent my own money, to give to a dev that stole the FREE project I made.
A necessary sacrifice.
The game is free, don't buy this here.

The audacity to use a hero like Superman for this villainous garbage.

Our game is not stolen. One of the former developers of our user team TJ ATOMICA he left our team a long time ago. but now he claims that the entire project belongs to him. but this is completely false. The game's rights and development process belong entirely to us.The reason why he did this is because the sales were increasing quite rapidly. He thinks he can make money from it.

he is constantly sending us messages on twitter, saying that he will try to take this game from us.
Please don't believe what he wrote.

best regards

You're Profile on Steam is a Level 1 for a developer. And you said he left a long time ago? I bet if Steam verifies when you made your profile, it will be less than four months old. Also, TJ isn't from Instanbul, as your LinkedIn profile says you're based. And 2019 is when you started, so how did you secure copyrights to DC, Unreal, and other development software and characters?

You're full of shit so lay in the bed you made.

Hey TJ, you might consider discussing with your lawyer to see if it's possible to file a lawsuit against Steam or this developer for illegally using your work to make money from it.

It's very sad Valve has not taken action about this delictive team faster for this not to affect so much to the real creator. Something some of us played long time ago from itch.io. At least, I am glad they deleted it from store.

Steam is a joke, how did this go through...
I'd say do they have a team of chimpanzees stamping approved on anything that comes in, but that would be offensive to the chimpanzees

Reported them for theft and scamming

The fact steam only removed his game but not him is just a proof of sadness. This "Hero Game Studios" still wiping the forum rofl.

Well hero games, im sure you have the source code to back your developer response. TJ ATOMICA has a lot of compelling evidence against you...

You should refund the game. Don't let them or Steam make money off this.
