Hey there, followers of The Increment.
Unfortunately, the tone of this post is not positive, but we think it’s in everyone’s best interests to be perfectly open and clear on this issue, seeing as opinions of the project so far are obviously largely based on our released media.
We’ve recently learnt that certain assets in our build were taken illegally from other sources, or “ripped” as it’s more commonly known. At present we’re not sure as to the exact extent of this issue, which is why we’ve taken steps to remove any and all potentially ripped assets from our build whilst we investigate.
As for how this came about, we place full trust in our developers and expect them to follow both internal guidelines and basic development ethics. Regrettably in this case, this trust was breached. To prevent this situation from happening in the future, we’re now looking into implementing a more robust artist review process within the team.
For the time being, we’ll be minimising our PR output. Development will continue onwards at a steady pace, but we want to be 100% sure that what we’re presenting is our team’s work. We’ll be sure to let you guys know once we’re back!
One small addition to the above - we've changed our ModDB URL from:
