All was good until I met the “beast.”

The beast tricks you with the promise of great things and lures you with false promises into a binding agreement.

This beast does not die, it does not sleep, it feeds! Feeds from the blood of innocent developers only to return scraps. (That is if you are lucky enough to get the scraps)

This hell spawn profit sucking beast of a publisher refuses to die even when they don’t have any real assets other than the name of the beast.

You might think I am talking about big publishers like EA or Activision but no, this one lurks, when everyone thought it was gone for good it returned only to once again feed on developers, this time
not even indie developers escape.

Run you fools! Do not sign with beast! You would be better off giving your game away for free.
