Here is where I normally say thanks for reading and feel free to contact me or leave a comment below but I don’t want Black Shell Media to think I welcome what they have to say.

But I do have a few words for employees of BSM who are not Raghav/Xinasha: If you are good at your job, if you want games and devs and their associated industries to succeed, please take a hard look at what your company does, how it looks to pretty much every developer I’ve talked to who makes games for a living, and what your CMO is shooting his mouth off about on places like Reddit.
