So yesterday Nick Robinson (popular games journalist/personality) tweeted about the framerate in Overcooked and how the devs responded to it. Also he was pretty rude to people.
This is not that unusual for Nick. He often says things on twitter that cause some controversy. It’s also not really the focus of the current stuff going around, it was more a jumping off point. As people joked about this exchange this tweet was made.
This led to a lot of people talking, some in vague ways but others in more direct terms. That Nick had approached several women asking for nudes, sexual things and generally being a creep. He then used his image as a “softboy” and his popularity and connections in the community to keep them silent. Being the first to talk about Nick would mean harassment from fans and skepticism from colleagues. People who would think that Nick couldn’t do those things due to the image he has cultivated.
I can personally say I have heard about this in the last couple months. Many women I know in the industry have talked to me about Nick and it was an open secret in the games community. I did not say anything out of the rights to their privacy,
TL;DR Nick Robinson has for the last few years sent creepy messages to women, asked for nudes and has made many women feel uncomfortable and scared to talk about it.
My drawing of @terrifyingjellyfish!!!! I recently found him through the polygon video talking about Nour, a game where you’re encouraged to play with your food. His style and games were so cool I had to draw him!
What is this asra and Lisa frank content I keep seeing? I joined the fandom only very recently, I don’t really get the joke
oh people just kind of compare him to lisa frank stuff because aesthetically he’s similar? he’s very colorful and cute and his route cgs just look like something you’d find on a lisa frank notebook or something
