Zoe Quinn fucks for positive press & why this is important
EDIT: I should probably explain some shit first.
Who is Zoe Quinn?
She's an indie dev who made the game Depression Quest on Steam. That's really about all she's done gaming-wise.
What started all this drama?
Her ex-boyfriend posted this wordpress (EDIT 2: forgot MPGH censored that shit, so here's a non-clickable link: http://thezoepost.wordpress.com) that explained how she cheated on 5 different guys while they were dating (hence the name Five Guys Burger and Fries). There's a tl;dr at the bottom of it since it's so fucking long.
So she cheated on him. Who cares?
Everyone should. The people she cheated with were people who gave positive press towards her game. Two of them are hired gaming journalists who both talked about how good the game was on their site (Kotaku and RPS).
What's she doing right now?
Now she's trying to cover everything up and yelling about how it's her life and she can do what she wants, as we have no involvement in her private life, even though every fucking gaming site blew the fuck up about some indie dev going creep on some chick through PM's on FB. She's twisting shit around, making it seem like we're going after her specifically (and her nudes, which are fucking disgusting; do not recommend).
Because this pretty much confirms the corruption of the gaming journalism industry. There is a large majority of people on twitter right now defending her, including the Five Guys (though one of them deleted their twitter). People are getting censored left and right on pretty much every site (including reddit, which seems to be the works of higher-ups). Proof: http://imgur.com/a/eKRe5
Shit's getting fucked right now.
tl;dr some bitch indie dev cheated on her boyfriend with various gaming journalists who just happen to give positive light on her game, shit's hitting the fan with censorship everywhere
It's important to give these FIVE GUYS their share of the flak too, so Zoe can't just play >muh oppression
and have Kotaku, Polygon, etc. discredit and bury the situation. Focusing on the guys involved also has the benefit of not summoning White Knights to Zoe Quint's patreon account and directly funding the downfall of vidya.
Call for statements, public apologies, and resignations where applicable.
Boycott the products they are associated with; including but not limited to:
Fez, Aquaria, Deep Sea, Framed, and Otter2D
Keep causing Phil Fish to have a twitter meltdown.
