Valve Boots Insel Games' Portfolio Over Reviews Manipulation

Valve Boots Insel Games' Portfolio Over Reviews Manipulation - MMORPG.com

Steam has removed all of Insel Games' titles from its platform as a result of an investigation into review rating manipulation. Valve said that Insel had been involved in making multiple Steam accounts to post positive reviews for its own games. "This is a clear violation of our review policy and something we take very seriously." the post reads.

While both Guardians of Ember and Wild Buster: Heroes of Titan and all other Insel Games have been removed from the store, players will continue to have access to them and can play. However, the developer will not be allowed to make any new sales through Steam.

The investigation came after a Reddit post showed the Insel Games CEO asking employees to purchase, in this case, Wild Buster: Heroes of Titan, and to post a review as well. "I am asking you either to do the following: Buy the game and present me the receipt until Friday night for which you will be reimbursed within 24h or explain to me tomorrow why you do not wish to do this", the CEO wrote to his employees.
