Game developers stealing Steampunk Artwork

Posted By on 17. Juni 2014

This has been making the rounds on social media already, but one of my oldest friends in the steampunk scene is a victim of art-theft here, so I do my part to spread the word.

An app developer apparently tries to cash in on Steampunk’s popularity and has developed some Steampunk-themed game which they have garnished with impressive artwork.

Artwork which is not theirs and which they failed to acquire permission to use for.

Take a look at this in-app image:

The artwork or likeness of the following people have been used without their permission:

Steam Powered Giraffe

Daniel Proulx

Georgie Retzer

Enkidi

Enkidi is responsible for this beautiful Steampunk Scientist:

So please, spread the word around, this art-theft will not stand!

    It would help to know the name of the company making the app. Does anyone know or have access to the app to tell us?

    I´d like to stay informed if there are any news about this subject. I found minimum 2 more games at slotmedia google store with stolen graphics.
