Darq Developer Reveals Why He Turned Down an Epic Exclusivity Deal
In a time where it seems more and more game developers are opting to sign lucrative exclusivity deals with the Epic Games Store (and thus angering a certain portion of gamers), the developer behind the indie horror adventure Darq has made the peculiar decision to turn Epic down. In a post to his Medium blog, developer Wlad Marhulets, the one-man team at Unfold Games, revealed what went into making his decision.
Less than a month before releasing the game, Mahulets finally shared a release date trailer, stating the game would come to Steam on August 15. Mahulets says it was three days later that an Epic representative reached out to him to discuss an exclusivity deal.
