PQube Games Facing Accusations of Exploiting Developers

PQube Games

United Kingdom based games publisher PQube Games is now facing allegations of exploiting two studios it was working with on an upcoming titles, and A Space for the Unbound has been delayed due to PQube Games allegedly using the pair’s Indonesian heritage to receive a diversity grant from a “well-known platform” during August 2020, according to Toge Productions and Mojiken Studio.

The two made a joint statement with the following:

“The diversity fund was a grant fund intended to help underrepresented developers, especially during the pandemic,” the two developers wrote in a statement. “However, instead of giving those funds to the developers as the grant was intended, PQube Games intentionally withheld information about the grant and used it as leverage for their own commercial gain.

“Rather than paying the grant money to us, PQube Games hid the facts about the grant’s award and added it as a recoupable minimum guarantee and then used it to negotiate the increase of their revenue share.”
