Indie Dev Digital Homicide Sues 100 Steam Users, Steam Removes Their Games

Looks like Digital Homicide is turning Steam into their Slaughtering Grounds.

Yesterday, independent game developer Digital Homicide filed a lawsuit for $18 million against 100 Steam users and has obtained a subpoena for their identities. The lawsuit, which has since gone to Valve itself, claims that these users “have been involved in continual and repeated attacks” against Digital Homicide. Valve has retaliated by removing Digital Homicide’s games from Steam.

Whoa whoa whoa, back up a bit!

Digital Homicide has been in the news a lot over the past couple of years, and it’s never been for a good reason. Their biggest fiasco before this was a lawsuit that was filed against journalist Jim Sterling, who criticized their games and claimed that they utilized bought or stolen assets to create them. Oddly enough, this is the exact same claim that DH is making against the 100 Steam users in this new suit.

The Jim Sterling lawsuit seems to still be going on, and DH is definitely pushing the critic as hard as they can. They even raised the lawsuit’s initial $10 million request to $15 million! It certainly looks like Digital Homicide is trying to cover some court costs with the latest suit.

In any case, Digital Homicide’s (very poorly reviewed) games, including the infamous Slaughtering Grounds, will no longer be available on Steam for a little while.
