Digital Homicide Studios LLC is an American video game developer based in Yuma, Arizona(?). It was founded on May 29, 2014 by Robert Romine and James Oliver Romine Jr. The company has used multiple pseudonyms on their releases. They run a website called Bundle Blitz and put out anywhere from 4 to 19+ games a year.
Controversy and Closing:
Digital Homicide Studios has a reputation for releasing poorly constructed games with sub-par graphics, numerous glitches, bad controls, short music loops, and use of pre-made models and textures not made by the developer. The company has also become infamous for using copyright for censorship, as well as bribing and threatening well known reviewers and members of the press.
On March 4, 2016, Digital Homicide Studios filed a lawsuit against Jim Sterling for "assault, libel, and slander", seeking over US$10 million in damages, which was later upped to US$15 million. On September 12, 2016, Digital Homicide Studios filed an additional lawsuit against 100 Steam users for "personal injury" for a total sum of US$18 million. This was followed by a request for a subpoena against Valve Corporation for the identities of those 100 users. Later that day, Valve removed the entire catalog of Digital Homicide Studios, consisting of 21 games and 15 pieces of downloadable content, from Steam, stating that Valve had "stopped doing business with Digital Homicide for being hostile to Steam customers." On October 2, 2016, Digital Homicide Studios dropped all the lawsuits and announced they would be closing their doors, stating a lack of financial means to pursue the lawsuits or sustain their business after Valve ceased their support.
