Here comes an interesting message related to one of the most outstanding franchises of the last years. In this case we are talking about Ori.
In the text that we leave you below, we can know some of the words that has published a recent investigation of the news media GameStop about accusations of racist, sexist and oppressive towards the developer of the franchise, Moon Studios, by past and current employees.
Here it is:
We really created something special, and I know the only way I was able to reconcile it was that I was able to see people on Twitch and see other people moved by that, and that was actually part of my healing process. Because maybe my suffering was worth it because other people felt something. In the end, I mean, a lot of us got burned out.
Following this investigation, Moon Studios has issued a statement denying the allegations:
We do not believe that the experiences suggested by your questions are representative of the 80+ members of the Moon Studios team who are thriving and doing great work every day, nor do we believe they are representative of the experiences of our former team members. In fact, we are very proud of our history of making people happy, advancing their careers and contributing to their financial success.
