Nintendo declines RCMADIAX's latest game, won't appear on Switch



This decision could certainly be overturned in the future, but for the time being, RCMADIAX's latest title isn't going to have a home on Switch. No reason for the decision was shared, but perhaps we'll get more info at a later date.

Thanks to NintenDaan for the heads up!

it's a shame Nintendo's doesn't allow the market to decide what games to allow on the system...

Yeah... such a shame. Heaven forbid a private company curates games on some level that will show up on their digital store.

It's definitely a double-edged sword, but one I'd argue has been working out pretty well in favor of the Switch's indie reputation so far. And with some of the games on there, it doesnt seem like the bar is that high to clear, actually.

Also, the arguably low barrier of entry is causing its own share of problems on Steam. So while "letting the market decide" keeps bad games from getting too much traction, it also makes it hard for good games to get noticed.

Maybe it was too sexy.

Yeah, literally the only reason I can think of is "too sexy."

They seem to only make puzzle games. I have a hard time believing it was for being too "sexy", considering that Senran Kagura boob touching game exists. I would guess it's some other reason. Unless it's a puzzle game with pictures of naked body parts on the background or something.

Hang on, aren't they the company that made all those rubbishy Wii U eShop games? My guess is that the game was just bad.

Yeah they are doing a good job playing victim.

There is a big difference between a regular bad game and shovelware.

The developers of Vroom likely tried to make a good game and simply failed because the concept was flawed and they were not ready to develop a 3d game on a brand new console.

RCMADIAX does not try to make good games at all, he simply tries to release as many games as possible and puts them on sale all the time to increase their visibilty. This way, he fools people who don't do research into buying his games.

It's ok to allow the people like the Vroom developers to put their games on the Switch because they actually try to make good games and might actually be successful sometimes.
Now, i'm usually all for "letting the market decide", but RCMADIX is lterally a shovelware developer, knowingly trying to sell bad games to unsuspecting people, and he will never make anything good because he does not even try.

Or... Orrrrrrrr... It could just be because his titles were notoriously garbage and gave the eShop a bad rap when he released that junk.

not curating lead to gambling and assets flip so I don't know why anyone would want that

Hooray! Keep that guy outta here! Thanks, Nintendo.

For those who don’t remember, RCMADIAX’s first game was pretty good - BLOK DROP U on Wii U. After that, he said he was doing an “experiment”, which turned out to be seeing if people would buy his games even if they were basically copied with no changes from asset stores. Then he constantly discounted them so they’d appear on the “games on sale” section.

Good riddance!

I think how he handled the backlash also didnt do him any favors. He showed no intention of wanting to make ambitious games again, and no consumers, especially not Nintendo fans, take lightly to that mentality.

He essentially painted himself into a corner as a dev, businessman, and PR representative.

He can break out of his reputation with enough work, but the attitude of his tweet shows he's still got a ways to go, unfortunately.

Deleted that tweet real quick. Sad!

Idc Nintendo NEEDS to start curating content. I'm tired of opening up Nintendo eshops only for them to be littered with shovelware. It's a sad way to boost a systems ecosystem. "We have 300 games on Switch 3x as many as Wii U!" But how many of those 300 games are actually quality games?

Good.

I don't want the Switch eShop become what the Wii U eShop became.

On the Wii U you had to go trought a sea of shitty games until you could find something decent.

Allowing shitty games to be sold on the eShop just hurts the games that are actually good because they are gonna be harder to find and people will visit less the store because they don't wanna lose their time by looking for something good in an ocean of garbage.

Good. Hopefully they turn down ALL of his future projects unless he learns how to put time and effort into a game and actually gets a decent idea of how to make a good game.

I used to be of the mind that anyone should be able to produce what they want. After all, who are Nintendo to decide what's good and what's bad? One man's trash is another man's treasure and all that.

However, seeing what happened to the Wii U eShop and things like Steam Greenlight totally changed that thinking.

There are just too many opportunist devs out there who simply assett flip or just put no effort into their games hoping they can lure in enough uneducated people to buy into them to make it worth their while. Quality control needs to exist. I don't want to see the Switch eShop flooded with trash just because rubbish devs can get away with it and bank on less educated people to make them a quick buck. I hope Nintendo keeps this up.

They flooded the Wii U with a bunch of shovelware and stolen ideas like Fifteen which is a copy of Threes. No wonder Nintendo isn't letting them publish games. I'm glad lol

The Twitter post has been deleted with a pinned tweet on their page.

Bye Twitter - will return March 2nd.

Backlash? God I hope so.

At long last Nintendo have shown some standards. This guy's prior bad games and notorious reputation also likely counted against him. He churned out digital dog poop on Wii U. It would have caused bad PR had he been approved and now as a result of him talking about it, it's created good PR for Nintendo.

Weeeeeell when you've taken a look at what they've created in the past, I am not at all surprised their upcoming title has been declined. I'm glad that Nintendo is implementing some sort of quality control, I wouldn't want the store to turn into another Steam or App Store in terms of the marketplace being flooded with mediocre to terrible titles. http://www.nintendolife.com/companies/rcmadiax/games

Must not have passed the official Nintendo seal of quality test...
