    Paradox owns everything lock, stock, and barrel.

    You have a point. People forget how shitty the games market was back then with shovelware and awful movie-license games. The lack of consumer protection and sketchy shit was rampant. Totalbiscuit did a lot of work then, he was one of the big honest game reviewers. He set a new standard how internet journalists and game devs should behave towards eachother and consumers.

    Game was released in 2022, but Techland ended cooperation with Avellone in 2020.

    Again, he has not worked on any project since the allegations came out in 2020.

    I have no knowledge whether it's because the entire game industry doesn't want to work with him or he's just not interested in the offers he receives.

    I have an acquaintance who works there, but he's on the game-dev side of the comapny; signing book rights are not his thing. But if I do have chance to talk to him, I'll mention it. I'm suprised Paradox isn't willing to sign it, any particular reason why?

    Eh, don't worry about it, I'm complaining about it's low priority not that it isn't doing it directly. The actual deals have been made. It's just they take forever to approve material. We're making progress. Just slowly and I wish they'd advertise the books coming back out.

    I'm proud of the work we've done.

    So Avellone can win his libel lawsuit but his career is still damaged. Yay cancel culture.
