Bad ending spells doom for Dark Mattr on Steam

Steam and other gaming services offered Dark Matter for about a week. They all pulled it down because users were angry over the abrupt ending.

Dark Matter went up on Steam and Good Old Games last week. This week, the survival-horror sci-fi platformer was pulled from both services for its abrupt and, to many players, unsatisfying ending.

Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder said in a Steam Community post that it is working on a “a more conclusive and satisfying ending” for the InterWave Studios game. But Gamasutra reports that almost the entire studio was laid off in July and August after a Kickstarter for the game failed, with only a skeleton crew of management remaining.
