Who just carries around $250.000 worth of files on a portable hardrive without any backups.. The bug is stupid, but this guy is a moron.

Spintires stuck in the mud of disagreements
3 March, 2016

Developer Pavel Zagrebelnyj is said to have intentionally damaged his own game – Spintires. It appears that there is misunderstanding between the creator and the publisher – Oovee.

Spintires stuck in the mud of disagreements

Gamers have been having problems with the title for some time – they are reporting crashes and the malfunctioning pieces of code appear to have been intentionally placed – ‘timebombs’, triggered at set times or dates.

Pavel talked to Eurogamer about the financial disagreements between him and the Oovvee

They owe me a s***load of money according to our contract. But I don’t have any leverage because my judicial skills are zero. I haven’t had a meaningful communication with Oovee for many months (maybe a year).

Another problem seems to be that Pavel is not allowed to develop his game the way he sees it. Oovee denies these accusations, saying that Pavel gets all the money he is supposed to according to the contract. Stiil, the Oovee are mostly sticking to ‘no comment’.

It would be a shame if Spintires was wasted because of these disagreements. This title has been quite successful – it was a top seller on Steam and Steamspy logs over a 100,000 users over the last fortnight, from around 750,000 owners.

If you need a quick fix for Spintires, there is one here. More is yet to be discovered about the relationship between the publisher and game developer.
