I do think it´s a dumb thing to remove someone for a conterversary, like the game has nothing to with Diversity.

Kairi, Jontron's remarks are slightly racist and/or xenophobic. It's one thing to have unpopular opinions but his statements about mexican people put Playtonic's PR at risk if they left him in the game.

I did do that, they said to check back once the period was over. It's been over a for a month and they haven't given any updates. Sent messages to their kickstarter too, no response for now.

They haven't been responding much on either social media.

They had to start dealing with the backer rewards recently. Wouldn't be surprised if that's eating up a lot of time.

Yeah, I don't mind waiting, it's just 15 euros. The issue is just the lack of response and proper timing(taking too long to announce the cancel, too long to put up a FAQ, etc etc). Again, like Bloodstained clearly spelling out day one what to do if you want a refund, what to e-mail them with, and they'll respond in a timely manner; that's the proper way to go about it if you want to keep people interested even if they don't get the game now.

Changing subject of less conterversial junk and also to be honest i´m not really a huge fan of Jon anyway, people overuse clips of his videos and it quite gets tiring.

Didren´t Crystal said she voiced a character? I heard Playtronic was going to post character images daily, i´m just curious. Can April be here already?

Kairi, just because you don't like the current subject, it doesn't mean you can just change it right away.

Jontron's situation is very similar to Pewdiepie's: both have done controversial stuff that got them booted out of big projects (Pewdiepie from Youtube Red and Jontron from Playtonic's project).

And yes, I am still voicing a character in the game.

It´s like you´re not allowed have different viewpoints these days especially conterversial ones, like you can still work with people with conterversial viewpoints.

PDP's issue was more taking his sentences out of context on a bad joke. Jon joined a stream, had a video, and said it on twitter for all to see - so while in a few years people might forget PDP's controversy and go back to seeing him in a better light, there's no way they can forget about Jon's.

So it's more that than how timely were the opinions. Either they sell the game to his fans and lose the outsiders to "omg they allowed this person into the game?", or they actually try to make a profit at the cost of the fans - and lemme tell you, with kickstarter funds, they're already in a losing battle if Shovel Knight is any indication.

JonTron's fans have been piling so much on them that several Playtonic members have protected Twitter accounts now.

In regards to Jon´s situation, yes I get it, he sounds racist and/or xenophobic, but is this the correct thing to do? It seems Youtubers get so much flak for something they say these days. No matter if it´s because they voice a character in a movie or TV Show or a conterversial opinion.

JonTron released a statement and already his fanbase is editing his message to vent out their anger and make it look like he's rage.

Good grief. I hate people sometimes. At least Playtonic isn't getting death threats. Good on him for being calm and level-headed about this whole thing.

OK, now they're just making the matter worse.
Just as long as the game doesn't turn into another Mighty No. 9, then people might just leave the water under the bridge.

Removing Jon is one thing, but if you want to kill sales, you get a salty PR just like that. That was definately intentonal.

Gameplay and interview from EGX. 



A reference to Conker's Bad Fur Day was also found in the game.

Did they really just Easter Egg Conker's Bad Fur Day in their game?

These guys are more stuck in the past than I thought...
Then again, I should have expected this from a team of ex- Rare developers.
