WE DID IT!!
May 30, 2018 — We received a statement from Valve Corporation that they have removed the game from their platform!
This is great news and a reminder to us all that we CAN affect change by speaking up. If you see something - say something! Your voice matters. Thank you all for standing up for this!
Here is the statement from Valve:
"We have removed the developer Revived Games and publisher ACID from Steam.
This developer and publisher is, in fact, a person calling himself Ata Berdiyev, who had previously been removed last fall when he was operating as "[bc]Interactive" and "Elusive Team". Ata is a troll, with a history of customer abuse, publishing copyrighted material, and user review manipulation. His subsequent return under new business names was a fact that came to light as we investigated the controversy around his upcoming title. We are not going to do business with people who act like this towards our customers or Valve.
The broader conversation about Steam's content policies is one that we'll be addressing soon."
We're all in this together - standing side by side with those who have lost family and friends in school shootings. We have to do better! Sending love out to all of you!
