There seems to be no ending to the drama surrounding “Mighty no. 9”. As new details (which are based on old leaked chat logs, thanks to the #CONLeaks) have emerged that show Dina Karam to be influencing certain changes in the game by injecting SJW and feminist politics into MN9. And in case you’re lost, Dina Karam was hired back in 2013 as the community manager to bridge the gap between backers on “Might no. 9” Kickstarter and Comcept games. And well…What ended up happening as a result, was that Dina Karam is a feminist, and is in league with several other like-minded individuals such as Anita Sarkeesian, and Zoe Quinn.

Well, we all know how that went…

Let me see now, what was it that Jim Sterling and Adam Sessler said about “not taking away our games” again?

Karam felt that several backers being supporters of Gamergate would ruin exposure for the title, so she began to blacklist them in the forums. Furthermore, she also denied and removed backers which requested refunds for the game. And after that she was fired for neglecting her duties at Comcept Inti Creates. Gamergate was named as the scapegoat, and the drama ensued over it…And from that point to now, not much was spoken on about the issue until now. And it´s all thanks to the leaked chat logs on Reddit, which have revealed that not only did Karam know what she was doing, she also added fuel to the embers in order to drive her authority home.

Even the real Sonic the hedgehog (the official Twitter account) made fun out of MN9´s launch day.

Karam wanted a gender, and ethnically swapped bots, and it doesn´t stop there. As she also wanted to have her own stamp on the game itself. And as absurd as it sounds to have someone with no experience on programming or game developing, it’s even worse that she believes she helped make the game better. This wasn’t the case, because “Mighty no. 9” failed out of the launch gate without help from critics or fans.

And if you’re familiar with #Gamergate, then you will find quite a few notable names in the leaked chat logs. Names such as Sarah Nyberg, Ian Cheong, Quinnae Moon (Katherine Cross), and Dina Karam are all in there together. Unfortunately, there is something else that you may find equally disturbing. They all support what Karam did as good for the cause of free speech and equality. Apparently the same people who believe that we should have freedom of speech are ok with us having it…just on their terms. As sad as it is to say, this is the result of bigots who believe that they are above scrutiny and scorn but aren’t. Even worse when called out for their idiocy, they scream that we the people are in the wrong.

alison rapp the truth

I bet that you won´t see any of this in the mainstream media…

So, yeah. People like Allison Rapp, Dina Karam, Zoe Quinn, Anita Sarkeesian, and other Anti-Gamergate figures need to understand something: consumers hold the power, and you never will. And while going down the list, this is the result of what happens when you cross the ones who provide your lively hood:

– Dina Karam was fired from her position as community manager at Comcept games for blocking backers, and whitelisting them in the forums.
– Allison Rapp was fired from Nintendo for being a sex worker, and a cam girl on her off hours.
– Zoe Quinn lied about her ex-boyfriend and recently tried to publish a book and film about it, both of which have fallen through despite what she says.
– Anita Sarkeesian has tried to launch another kickstarter project, which was fully funded for $200,000 on a different funding site. The reason why is probably because Kickstarter makes you deliver on your promises instead of just robbing backers.

And as you might imagine. Eventually, the stigma will die, since people don’t want games with censorship. Well, I don’t know, about you, but its a good thing people like Karam and Sarkeeisan will never work in games. They’re going to ruin them completely.

And with that said, what´s your take on this matter? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!
