Devolver Digital Alleges Self-Help App Rips Off Artistic Platformer 'GRIS’ – Waypoint

Self Help
Fabulous, a self-help app about adding healthy habits into a daily routine, was accused by game publisher Devolver Digital today of having “ripped off” the art direction, and even some scenes, from the company’s artistic platformer, GRIS. The company behind Fabulous has since taken down the video the comparison was taken from, and Fabulous CEO Sami Hassine told VICE Games it was “investigating this as all of this has been sudden, but any wrongdoing from our side is not intentional.” Hassine said Fabulous was originally inspired by “games like Journey, Monument Valley, and books like the Little Prince or The Alchemist to create our universe.” “It might be that one of our artists or freelancers got inspired by a game that they liked,” said Hassine. Devolver Digital did not respond

An app that helps folks track their habits has been accused of plagiarizing puzzle-platformer Gris. The Fabulous, an app that claims to help users build good habits and “break the bad ones,” has been accused by Devolver Digital of plagiarizing the indie game Gris in a video created to promote the app.  According to a video the publisher posted on Twitter, the self-help app’s video used animation from the excellent indie game available on PC, Switch and the App Store. We’ll let the video speak for itself. The Fabulous app (@GetTheFabulous) ripped off GRIS and is reminder to all devs to be mindful of big companies and brands stealing creative work from smaller studios. pic.twitter.com/scg20wt4Vj — Devolver Digital (@devolverdigital) November 5, 2019 In the Nomada Studio developed

With the win, McIlroy picked up a significant number of World Ranking points and now sits second at 10.38 points, while Koepka maintains his lead with 11.47. Neither is likely to play much coming up; Koepka has been suffering from a knee injury while McIlroy is already looking ahead to an eight-week offseason, he said. Faxon also praised the way McIlroy handles his relationship with his wife Erica, who tends to lay low during wins. In doing so, he drew (intentionally or not) another contrast with Koepka, whose relationship with Jena Sims has found plenty of TV time. “I’ve gotta commend you, the way you win a tournament, and you’ve won a lot of them this year, you don’t ever see the profile with Erica and do the staged pictures like so many players do,” Faxon said. “I respect that, I lik

I’ll be the first to tell you that I think everyone should make time for self-care. When I say “self-care,” though, I don’t just mean self-care that’s tied to consumerism or that’s all sheet masks and bath bombs. I mean self-care as a collection of tools—from coping mechanisms to healthful habits to feel-good activities—that get us through the day. Or the week, or the month, or the year. Everyone, I believe, can make existing in this world just a little easier by curating their own personal collection of self-care tools. That said, I would be lying if I told you I didn’t have a special place in my heart for just how important self-care can be for people in the LGBTQ+ community. Of course, no single member of the community will have the same experience. But for me, and for so many queer

CLEMSON — Pressure can cause pipes to burst or it can produce diamonds. The good thing for the Clemson Tigers is that apparently the pressure that quarterback Trevor Lawrence opened the season with is currently producing diamonds.Even after a difficult start to the season, according to many national media outlets, Lawrence has responded in exactly the right way.He's had about eight bad plays all year and people just can't get let it go. They just can't forgive him. For every bad play, he's had about 50 great ones," head coach Dabo Swinney said. "Since the Tigers lone "close-call" at North Carolina, Lawrence has had four straight games throwing at least three touchdown passes, and Swinney pointed out that his passer efficiency rating is higher at this point in the season than at the same
