Frozen Synapse Dev Comes Out Against #GamerGate And Sargon Of Akkad
Mode 7 Games vs Sargon

It’s about five years late, but Mode 7 Games co-founder Paul Kilduff-Taylor come out against #GamerGate and Carl “Sargon of Akkad” Benjamin after he discovered that Sargon would be a UKIP election candidate, as reported by the Independent.

On April 12th, 2019, Kilduff-Taylor made the following string of tweets.

Kilduff-Taylor is now actively talking about preventing someone from being elected because he aligns with the politics pushed by outlets like Waypoint, where Patrick Klepek works. Yes, the same Patrick Klepek who used the GameJournoPros list in an attempt to blacklist another industry professional, as chronicled by DeepFreeze.it, and the same Waypoint that refused to review Warhorse Studios’ Kingdom Come: Deliverance because the studio did not kowtow to the demands of Left-wing bloggers and add more “diversity” to their game.

In this case, Kilduff-Taylor is now actively siding against a movement that was formed around weeding out corruption in media journalism. And again, there is a list of corruption unearthed by #GamerGate that was chronicled over on DeepFreeze.it.

He’s also actively siding with the journalists who were called out for their active participation in corruption, and denigrating Sargon of Akkad based on falsehoods. Recently Sargon appeared on Rebel Wisdom to talk about the mainstream media’s misrepresentation of him and his ideals, as well as the culture war that persists due to their ideological activism.

For those of you unaware, Mode 7 Games is known for having developed Frozen Synapse, Tokyo 42 and The Colonists, among other titles. It appears now that the co-founder seems to be acknowledging that anyone who supports better ethics in journalism or wants to call out corruption in journalism is someone who he is
