Steam is turning into some sort of wild west for game scams.
It looks like Valve has again had to step in to remove a game from its Steam library after the game received thousands of complaints over scamming players into buying something that’s not really a game at all. Earth: 2066, has been removed from Steam’s early access program due to being improperly marketed and nowhere near the product in motion it was advertised to be.
Here’s the official statement:
“On Steam, developers make their own decisions about promotion, features, pricing and publication. However, Steam does require honesty from developers in the marketing of their games. We have removed Earth: Year 2066 from Early Access on Steam. Customers who purchased the game will be able to get a refund on the store page until Monday May 19th.“
What are your thoughts? Is early access buyer beware, or is Valve right to police scammy titles? Have you ever bought anything on Steam you regret?
