Makers Of Day One: Garry’s Incident Take Down TotalBiscuit Video, Internet Goes Nuts

Fact is, not every game you’ll ever see out is a masterpiece. Day One: Garry’s Incident is one of those games, a complete mess of bad animations, frustrating controls, a plethora of bugs and glitches, and overall it’s just a poorly designed excuse for a game. Most of the time when a terrible game is released like this it tends to be forgotten rather quickly. Thanks to a bit of a dispute between Youtuber TotalBiscuit and Wild Games Studios, the creators of Garry’s Incident, this game is going to be sticking in the public consciousness for awhile, but for all the wrong reasons.

Over this past weekend TotalBiscuit put up a video that detailed everything that was wrong in the game, like any reviewer would. Wild Games, not liking what TB had said, responded to the video not with a press release stating why he was wrong, or why people should give the game a chance, but rather by filing a complaint through YouTube that TB had infringed on their copyright of the game and had it taken down. At this point, the denizens of the internet cried foul.

According to Wild Games, TB was making money off of their footage, which Wild Games claim they had not given him permission to do. That excuse doesn’t hold water when you look at the fact that A.) TB in his initial email to Wild Games let them know that he was a reviewer, and that he was going to make a video, and B.) many other videos were still available on YouTube that were critical of Garry’s Incident, but because they didn’t have nearly the same numbers that TB’s video had Wild Games didn’t make the effort to have them taken down. If you want a full run down of what happened, you can check out TB’s video down below:

Since then Wild Games has apologized to TB, stating that “Monetizing wasn’t mentioned in our communications and it was an error on our part to not have clarified the issue.” Of course, that apology isn’t going to help a whole lot with the internet, but you have to admit that it’s better to see Wild Games admit they were wrong than to see them double-down on their insistence that their copyright was being infringed upon. With all that being said, I wouldn’t be too surprised to see “Wild Games” transform into something different, in an attempt to hide their past.
