      Heads would roll if this was anything but a Nintendo game. Instead the fans are more concerned about people emulating/pirating the game than an apolitical industry issue.

                It happened for both the scott pilgrim game, sonic mania(pretty sure 90% of the credits didnt actually work on the game) and some random indie games I worked on like real myst and bloodstained also just gave people credits despite doing almost nothing or asking for it.

                      Firstly that doesn’t justify anything
                      Secondly companies being draconian about fan games is 100% greedy boomer shit and has no basis in any logical sense other than rich fucks thinking fan games will hurt their IP’s image or revenue.
                      The sad part is that fan game makers should learn to keep their projects secret and distribute them without too much of a fuss so that companies wouldn’t be able to step in and DMCA as easily. But their pride is their downfall

        game dev seems fucked as hell. Indie is too risky unless you already have an established reputation, and AAA gamedev is a shit ton of crunch and shitty work practices/culture for a quarter of the pay and twice the hours that high quality web dev or corporate software application development pay.

          Don’t sign a contract with terms you don’t acknowledge the terms of. Additionally, it seems that the main dude in the initial report broke termination protocol to top it off. It’s also strange that people seem to feel that being in the credits is the only way to have proof of employment or to validate an inclusion of a project on your resume.

            Because all these people moaning about it either don’t have jobs or have a CV with five lines in it and don’t understand you don’t list everything you do on it.

        Credit is how they get a new job. Metroid dread will probably be GOTY and they won’t be able to say “hey look I worked on the GOTY”

      So do people actually read credits? I hope Kotaku is sitting through each credit sequence. Ideally Far Cry 2 and AC Rogue.

      **YOU ARE ENTERING A SNOY SHILL THREAD**

      Before you reply bump this thread, consider the fact that it was made by a pathetic rogue snoy, whether paid or not by Snoy themselves. Snoy has been paying top dollar to shill Nintendo hate on Ganker in fear of the Switch’s consistently dominating success and moviestation 5 having no games – in pathetic attempt to defame Nintendo and deprive them of potential sales.

      >What do I do when I see a snoy shill/Nintendo flaming thread?

      Don’t fucking respond. That’s all you have to fucking do. Report it for flaming or advertisement and if you need to tell the snoys off, then sage your post.

      >What is snoy falseflagging?

      Sometimes the snoy may pose as a Nintendo fan while and despite actively flaming Nintendo, they may attempt to pose as a "jaded" fan of Nintendo in tryhard attempt to hide themselves as a snoy while still pooping on them. This is referred to as snoy falseflagging. This is easily exposed by the thread or post implying they are a Nintendo consumer, despite the thread or post itself disparaging them. (e.g. "But I like/used to like Nintendo", "I don’t even like snoy", etc.). Let the snoys die on their own.

      Thank you for noting.

        People who never worked for nintendo are gonna sue nintendo because they broke their contract with mercury steam, their employer, and had the punishment listed in their contract for breaking the contract enacted? How exactly does that work?

      I’ve been working in games for 14+ years.

      Fuck anyone who leaves a project before it ships. The last 10% is harder than the first 90%.

      Anyone who leaves before a game is shipped at best deserves a credits in the special thanks section.

      If they were really "developers" then they would have been credited. What made them present themselves as more than what they really are is likely the same reason they ghosted the companies involved.

        It’s a great game that, strangely enough, has a fuckton of people’s ass erupt in a literal volcano of anal pain and knowing Kotaku and their shameless thirst for outrage and buzz, they must be trying to milk the cow for all the clickbait that it’s worth.
