Ion Fury Cheats Arrive With A Soy Soap Bottle Mod

Ion Fury Soy

3D Realms and Voidpoint really screwed the pooch with Ion Fury. All they had to do was deliver a retro-made first-person shooter on the Build Engine; slap a price tag on it and sell it. That’s all they had to do. Yet the whole thing turned into a dog and pony crap-show, which resulted in the game getting censored, a moderator censoring the forums and proclaiming he “hated gamers!” on social media, followed by reviews getting flagged and banned. Ion Fury basically died in the water before it even made it ashore. Funnily enough, along with the emergence of some cheats for the game, there’s also a neat little mod that features a bottle of soap that best describes the corporate atmosphere at 3D Realms and Voidpoint.

Ion Fury Developers Kowtow To ResetEra Demands: Will Censor Game, Adopts Hate Speech Policy

Ion Fury

Voidpoint Interactive was pressured by ResetEra to remove what the hate-forum labeled as insensitive language. They launched a social media campaign to get the developers fired after one of the developers rightly stated that parents shouldn’t be trying to force their kids to transition at a young age. The media picked up on ResetEra’s outrage and broadcast it high and wide until 3D Realms and Voidpoint responded by apologizing for the developers’ comments, and also acknowledging that they would be donating $10,000 from Ion Fury’s revenue to the Trevor Project for LGBTQIA+.

Ion Maiden Gets Renamed To Ion Fury And Will Release August 15th On PC

The lawsuit alleged that the upcoming retro-styled FPS title was infringing on the Iron Maiden property.
