An Indie developer receives protests from users after introducing denialist speech of the pandemic in the notes of a patch

The Indie Gladiators game, Domina, has received hundreds of negative reviews in the last days on its Steam page, after the developer introduced an anti-mask message in the notes of the last patch.

The notes of the patch seem, a priori, normal, talking about new features and optimizations, but in the middle of the list of features the developer writes “Remove the whites masks”.

“Remove the whites masks, the next time you are in a supermarket, try to teach a woman your face. Show confidence, without fear of lies – maybe you could find a girlfriend. Women like trust. They do not like men who cover their face with fear. What are you afraid of? To flirt? “

Infodemic: Coronavirus and the fake news pandemic

“How to ruin a game in two simple steps… adds microtransractions years after the launch and adds a strange speech on masks in your patch notes”; He said a review.

“Politics and personal perceptions should not be part of the game marketing campaign,” added another user. “The developer thinks the opposite, saying that the Covid-19 is a lie after millions of people have died for this virus not only is lack of responsibility, but pure ignorance.”

Thus, the game has gone from having “very positive” Reviews to be “fundamentally negative.”

As PC Gamer points out, it is not the first time that the Developer Dolphin Barn Incorporated has included similar messages in his patch notes. Last year, he added a commentary on the fight that said “weak men do not have personality” and that “a strong morality is gained through hard work and sacrifice and can not be obtained in Pornhub or Onlyfans.”
