Dark and Darker lawyers fire back at Nexon: ‘nothing more than anti-competitive bully tactics designed to put a small indie firm out of business’

Dark and Darker developer Ironmace may be the “punk hero of PC gaming (opens in new tab)” right now, but it’s also making some power moves in the strait-laced chambers of the law. The studio has now fired back at Nexon with a full-throated defense of its game, saying that Nexon is just mad that some of its former employees have struck out on their own.

It’s been a hell of a ride for Dark and Darker, which blew up on Steam (opens in new tab) earlier this year but then became embroiled in a legal beef with Nexon (opens in new tab), which accused the studio of using stolen code and assets to make the game. A DMCA claim in March forced the game from Steam (opens in new tab), so Ironmace went “old school” and distributed a promised April playtest build via torrent (opens in new tab).
