Update 2: A full explanation/apology from Wild Games can be read at Kotaku.
Update 1: Kotaku reports that Wild Games has decided to withdraw its YouTube copyright complaint. A statement from Wild Games:
"..after seeing all the negative impact today we decided to withdraw our complaint to YouTube."
YouTube personality Nerd³ Plays also weighs in on the situation…
Original Story: YouTube personality TotalBiscuit has taken to YouTube to express his dissatisfaction with the makers of Day One: Garry's Incident. After failing to raise funds on Kickstarter to further develop the game, studio Wild Games Studio found success on Steam Greenlight, where it caught the attention of TotalBiscuit. He asked the company for a code so he could critique it the way he critiques other games on his channel.
He claims that they gave him permission and he made a video which was less-than-flattering to the game. This apparently made the develops upset enough to file a copyright infringement claim with YouTube, who subsequently took down TotalBiscuit's episode featuring the game. Now he is pretty upset and has taken to YouTube to spend 14 minutes explaining why what Wild Games Studio did is tantamount to suppressing free speech and generally an underhanded tactic.
His new video does a great job of laying out why YouTube should have never pulled the video in the first place, and why Wild Games Studio has proven that it can't handle criticism. He also notes that the company gave blanket permission to the community at large saying that they could make videos using footage from the game and express permission to him in a series of emails.
The video speaks for itself, and it should concern Wild Games Studio that it has 974,757 views as of this writing. It's likely going to draw even more attention to the fact that (in TotalBiscuit's opinion) the game is a horrible mess.. You can watch the video to your left.
