This kind of shit is exactly why I started acting as a Steam Curator. The kind of gross misconduct that Valve allows developers to get away with on Steam is just rediculous.

I'm on mobile, but when I get on my computer I fully intend to look into this and add this to my curator reviews.

Well, with so much on Steam Valve doesn't really have time to go through all the content on Steam. I doubt they even know this company exists. But yeah those devs are assholes luckily most store page helpful reviews are negative so hopefully this game won't be purchased by many.

They definitely don't need to be constantly monitoring the store for abuse like this, but if they actually had any support system in place, it would give us users a way to get these things taken care of in a good way, rather than just screaming about it online until some gaming news site picks it up and pressures Valve.

For anyone wondering the original Trailer was made private.

I sent a message to a friend in the FTC. Steam will yank this title if they are found to be false advertising.

I could not finish that video. The blurry action going on in the background started making my eyes ache.

ah ok. I wasn't aware that it causes that. Yeah here is the original video. Sorry about that, I had no idea it would cause an adverse effect like that. https://vid.me/HDa1

So, is the footage they advertise fake? Or are they using these youtubers to lure in sales by having them play and making it seem like they play this game?

From what I gather, they used footage of their game and added videos from famous Youtubers playing other games they enjoyed along side it. So it looks like the Youtube person in the video is playing and liking their game, when in reality they were playing an entirely different game.

I played Interstellar Marines with a couple of friends. It was for a couple of matches. They seem to have started with a good idea. But yeah, I really don't like shifty videos.

They stated it was a fake video. How does that make it false advertising? Meanwhile, as for the video being private. A glance at their Twitter will show you, this was done after consultation with the community. Which, as you can see, was not so heavily opposed to the 'false advertising' after all.

Maybe they were assholes about it, even giving benefit of doubt that the "we wanted to make a controversy" comments were tongue in cheek, that was still a really dumb thing to do.

But come on people!

Goddamnit even after putting so much money into this, too. What a screw up. :(
