To be honest with you guys, I’m totally speechless at the moment. Because i never thought that i would ever get to see Tim Schafer pull such a stunt like he did at the GDC 2015 event.

Not only was it a really bad joke, and a really stupid idea. But it was really offencive and provoking as well. As Tim made fun of minorities and people with disabilities, when he joked about #NotYourShield.

tim schafer the sjw joker

This is just one of many pictures that´s spreading all over the net at the moment.

And even if Tim Schafer would apologize for his stand up act at GDC. The damage has already been done, and it can´t be undone. Hell, things were already salty and sour between Tim Schafer and his audience before this scandal took place.

In fact, there´s even a anti Tim Schafer and Double Fine Productions movement going on as i write this.

oliver campbell is angry on tim

I think it´s safe to say that Oliver Campbell, is quite angry with Tim schafer at the moment.

And the reactions has been very loud and angry. I couldn´t pick out every single one of them of course, so i picked some tweets and comments which i thought topped the rest.

Like Oliver Campbell´s angry tweet that was aimed directly towards Tim Schafer. Well, the tweet speaks for itself really (see the picture above).

mark kern is sad

Even Mark Kern was shocked by Tim Schafer´s stunt at GDC 2015.

But not everyone had an angry tone in their tweets and comments. Mark Kern (CEO, MEK Entertainment) was more sad and disappointed than anything else.

TheRalph on the other side, he showed no mercy (whatsoever) on Tim Schafer´s “little” GDC 2015 stunt.

That was a heavy reach, ouch indeed…

And the list just goes on and on. For me personally (as a fan and a consumer), this was the last drop. I can´t support nor back Tim Schafer after this. It was uncalled for, it was unprofessional and it was also ignorant and a racists move.

So, was it worth it Tim? Everything (fans your career) for the hipster SWJ´s elite of San Francisco?

“The combination of silence and groans from the audience is hilarious.

The joke doesn’t even make sense. Why would it take 42 people to make a tweet? And why would they tweet notyourshield concerning armor design?

This is what Tim Schafer has become. A once noteworthy developer who now is so irrelevant that he makes awkward jokes at gaming cons about twitter.” – Jenny Hozuki

“i am laughing so fucking hard.not at the joke, obviously. at the parody levels of god awful and forced this was.
he’s so nervous. stuttering and sweating. “m-materials” i can almost smell the liquid shit running down his pants.
it’s going to take a while for my to heal from the second-hand embarrassment.” – Shoe0nHead

“How many GamerGaters does it take to make a single piece of armor? 50! One to do the modeling, one to do the… ma…terials, and 40 tweet that it’s not your shield.”

Great delivery, Tim! Also, today I learned that 1+1+40=50.” – Joseph Eff

“hey Oliver, look up Spacebase-DF9 and see the kind of bullshit Schafer and DoubleFine
pull. They’re not devs, they’re cons” – Doomchild
