RESOLVED - Steam game

http://store.steampowered.com/app/345920/?snr=1_4_4__122

This is… a game, I guess, ostensibly about SCP-599. No licensing whatsoever.

I've sent a Steam friend request to the developers so that I can hopefully get in contact with them and, y'know, have them correct CC. If not, I'll escalate to a DMCA w/ Steam.


Sent them a PM via Steam:

Got a reply back:

artemizgame: Thank for you notice
artemizgame: Now you can see this in the legal information

And the game info has, in fact, been updated. (under the system requirements section)
