Nah, it's just some crowd funded game that may have said it's releasing on Steam but now it doesn't. Kind of a dick move.

Oh, yeah I don't remember the name of the game but the article about it. Some of the backers are angry (how surprising!) because a Steam release was promised during the funding campaign and now want their money back, which I find it fair since the conditions have changed.

Some of the backers are actually thinking of filing for lawsuits. I wouldn't blame them, since this kind of dick move is setting a bad example and tainting the waters for crowd funding.

Hopefully these people manage to file a suit and bring back some actual order to crowd funding, by holding the ones making the product responsible. 

When this sort of crap happens though, I can never side with the dev, I'll side with the consumer.
