Developer booted off Steam for putting its name as 'Very Positive'

When you open a game’s Steam page, do you find yourself instinctively glancing at its review ratings? If so, you’re just the kind of person one developer tried to fool by naming their studio ‘Very Positive,’ an impressively brazen ploy that’s since seen them booted off the platform.

The deception was first spotted by the GameDiscoverCo newsletter. Banking on the fact that both the reviews summary and developer/publisher fields use the same blue font, the creator of Emoji Evolution came up with a shameless plan to trick prospective buyers into thinking they’d stumbled across a popular hit.
