If it's from the mouth of the suspect, I wouldn't find it seaworthy. Conspiracies run deep.

BTFO.
Entire thing was manufactured by a group of blackhat 4chan hackers. Honestly it comes as no surprise, but it's sad that people are going through this much trouble just to harass somebody.

Stop decrying this as some SJW crusade, someone is being legitimately harassed. Trying to sweep it under the rug as "muh feminism, muh equality" is just turning a blind eye to a huge problem with gamer culture in general.

This whole discussion is disappointing.

They were taken out of context to look worse than they actually were.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO BELIEVE

 

Not picking sides anymore since I'm a naive person, so I'm just going to sit back and have fun laughing at this bullshit as it comes up from now on.

Thats the only thing to do at this point, everyone not involved wins.

Harassment or no, this does get some attention on the whole corruption issue. But seeing as this is just another scummy 4chan thing, I'm just going to write it off and completely lose interest again.

Yeeah, I'm just not going to touch this issue anymore. The only way to win this game is not to play.

For those interested in more industry corruption shenanigans, IGF and IndieCade have been accused of racketeering.

Not really news or anything, but here's a point of view of things from an indie dev/former journalist from the Soviet Union.

Suicide Prevention Hotline and International Foundation for Research on Depression have both denied having any contact with Zoe.

Depression Quest released on February 2013, the home page states that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to both Hotline and IFred.

 

She has (very) recently removed IFred from her site.

Was going to let that develop before posting it, but oh well. She's acting incredibly suspicious anyway.

 

Also wanted to add that the funding page for IFred from Depression Quest's main page is hitting a 404 now.

Yeah I tried not to say anything inappropriate about it since it can really mean anything at the moment.
