Scalebound Dev Isn’t Happy With Microsoft

Though in fairness, Kamiya seems angry at everybody, all the time.

ScaleboundScalebound developer Hideki Kamiya isn’t exactly happy with Microsoft and he apparently doesn’t care who knows it. At the heart of the creator’s frustrations appears to be the way Microsoft has handled the marketing of his game, as well as their preparations for exhibiting the title at Gamescom next week. This is despite the fact that Microsoft seems to think they are all set to show off the Xbox One exclusive in a way that is sure to get fans excited.

Kamiya took to Twitter to voice his rather explicit displeasure saying “Those s— at MS… are they f— with me…?” The original tweet was in Japanese and was quickly taken down, but the folks at Neogaf grabbed a screenshot and a translation before the developer could scrub the sight from the Internet.

While the developer never explained what exactly had him so fired up, he later tweeted again, this time in English, saying, “If I were to go to Gamescom, I want to go for users, not as a prop of Xbox Briefing.” Kamiya has voiced his displeasure of Microsoft’s marketing campaigns before, calling them generic and “junk.” One has to wonder how this kind of diatribe is going to go over with Microsoft, especially since the company is indeed looking to showcase Scalebound at Gamescom. They likely aren’t going to do anything drastic like pull the game from it’s lineup, but when developers start squabbling with big time publishers, it’s never particularly good for anyone.
