Steam just removed all games from Digital Homicide after The Slaughtering Grounds developer went after their own customers for harassment. Previously the developer sued YouTuber Jim Sterling for a whopping 22 million dollars for libel and defamation. However, it’s safe to say these individuals are just in it for the money. They don’t want to concern themselves with actually making quality games. Furthermore, just look at footage of Slaughtering Grounds and you’ll know what we’re talking about.

Steam removed all games from Slaughtering Ground developer

Valve has said they won’t be doing any business with developer Digital Homicide. However, the developer responded with this post on their official website

“First i’d like to briefly respond to Doug Lombardi’s official statement about Digital Homicide and its owners. I’d like to give some context to his offficial statement. “Valve has stopped doing business with Digital Homicide for being hostile to Steam customers”. What has actually transpired was a lack of resolution from Steam in regards to moderation of their platform. That might sound like a tough job to do. However, coming from a company that brags its profitability per employee is higher than google, it just shows a reckless disregard for for the well being of their community for profits.

The lawsuit is labeled by the media as “being hostile to Steam users” in general. This is incorrect. The lawsuit recently filed is solely in regards to some individuals. No resolution was able to be obtained from Steam to provide a safe environment for us to conduct business.”
