In recent weeks, gamers have been reading a lot of bad news about their favorite hobbies. Companies cease operations in the territory of the Russian Federation, studios remove their hits from sale. Now it’s the developers’ turn.
Indie developers from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus suddenly received a “letter of happiness” from Valve. According to the message, the corporation has suspended payments to creators due to the inability to send money to the territories of these three countries. However, there has not yet been an official statement on this subject.
The reaction to such a restriction is predictable: designers and programmers were not happy about such manipulations with their main income. Some, in particular Oleg Skutte , are sure that technical problems are just a fictional reason and that the current situation in the world is actually to blame for everything.
