A developer is banned from his own Steam forum for insulting his customers

The study Dolphin Barn Incorporatedcreators of the gladiator game dominatehas been permanently banned of the forums Steamwhere the title is distributed, by continually violate rules and guidelines of the Valve Platform Community, which are the same for all developers and users. On previous occasions, the studio has introduced controversial messages in the patch notes of its game and has promoted behaviors in the forum among its clients that go against Steam rules, as reported from pc gamer.

The founder of the study has shared on his Twitter profile a screenshot of the message that communicates the expulsion from the forum: “This is the second time one of your posts violates our guidelines and discussion guidelines, specifically when insult or harass another user“. “We have also observed a trend with Abusive messages sent when kicking players of your community. When you post any content in the Community or when communicating with your players, please comply with the guidelines.”

The general reviews of dominate, published in April 2017, are “mostly positive”; has a total of 8082. However, the recent reviews (1135) are “mostly negative”. Eurogamer remember that in March of this year, in the patch notes of an updateDolphin Barn Incorporated motivated its users to stop wearing masks and suggested that the coronavirus pandemic is a “lie.” “Women don’t like guys who cover their faces in fear,” read that statement.

In May, in other patch notesin the section referring to combat, he added an asterisk where it can be read that “weak men lack character” and that “a strong moral fiber […] earned through hard work and sacrifice and you can’t get it through onlyfans or pornhub.” According to pc gamerthe studio sometimes responds to negative reviews on Steam with offensive comments towards transgender people and promoting a type of toxic masculinity.

Valve threatens to withdraw the game from sale

The message where Steam notifies the studio of its expulsion adds that the developers cannot contradict the moderators of Valve, which threatens to remove the game from the store: “We also want to make it clear that you should not override moderators’ decisions on Steam or allow rules violations on your forum. Future disregard of our standards and guidelines could jeopardize our business relationship“.

Dolphin Barn Incorporated, while unable to post to the Steam Community, still having the ability to update the title and post notes of the patch. However, in a statement where claims his game receives fraudulent reviews, suffers from a smear campaign on Twitter and by the media, that Steam moderators are “cowards” and that his followers should “talk” to Gabe Newellhe adds: “At this point, it’s doubtful DOMINA will receive future updates on Steam.”
