He deserves to be able to keep the money he earned and not have to pay $40,000 out of his own pocket to fix something that only affected a handful of people. If you’re one of those people I’m sure it’s frustrating but the game didn’t take that long to complete once you knew what you were doing.
When a creative such as this could offer the world of gaming so much more originality than any AAA studio it’s vital that they’re allowed to make profit so they can continue to innovate and potentially expand (bigger QA team for example). Ignore these fools. I love you Phil Fish. Please let me give you more of my money in exchange for a slice of your imagination.
He didn't just invest his own money, he got a lot of loans to do it. Also, he sold over 200,000 copies at $10 each which is $2 million, MS take 30%, which in this case is $600,000, leaving him $1.4 million. Even allowing for other expenses and costs, he's still made around the 1 million mark, and he is whinging because he was being made to pay a fee, which he knew in advance that he would have to pay, to fix a game he released broken?
No, he doesn't deserve anything at all, this wasn't a small problem, for those people affected it was game breaking, it was serious and it was unforgivable of him to say "thanks for making me a millionaire, but screw you, I'm not paying to fix the game". He's basically being asked to pay about 4p in every £10 he made, and he was complaining? Inexcusable.
