Kumi Games Show How To Not React To Critisicm
So, most game developers and people in the entertainment industry deal with criticism on a daily business and at times it can get a tad overwhelming. That being said, there’s always two ways to deal with said criticism. You can be open about it, and listen to said criticism and work on improving said projects, etc in the future. Take the criticism, and improve.
Or, you can be like the development team “Kumi Games” behind the indie horror game, [Rec]Shutter and who’ve said some really ugly things regarding a group of “Let’s Players” and people who have criticized their game. Let’s dive in to this mess, and try not to come out dirty.
Okay, so that’s a lot to take in but it’s just a really weird situation when you look deeper into it. I can understand getting a little flustered, and buggered when people shit on something you’ve worked on but it’s just correct, and well morally right to be polite, and grow up about the whole thing. Take the criticism, and roll with it. There could still be people who enjoy your product, so don’t focus entirely on the negatives.
So, yeah. It’s probably best to avoid calling your customers and people playing your game (especially YouTubers who get quite some popularity, and coverage of indie games nowadays). Especially their comments calling girl-gamers sluts. That’s just disrespectful.
I’d like to get people’s opinions on this thing. So, post away in the comments below…and try to keep it adult and respectful.
