@Blue Moth Klei has not be clear if Tencent owns just a majority stake, or if they own THE majority stake as in 50%+ and they did lock my topic they obviously do not want to answer this not even bothering to anyhow say why they locked it. So how do you know that Tencent does not own Klei now do you have any additional information?

It'd be over 50 because nobody else has a stake. So it is by definition, over 50. Anyone else is in denial and they won't clarify it, it's said this way for a reason. PR.

They are clearly not going to share details of agreements with internet; As a player, we don't even need to know that, just read the EULA which is special to consumer, and consume the game.

I read the new steam eula, looks like everything still belongs to klei. Even Darkest Dungeon, a non-klei game, got a new terms and conditions window at the same time.

I know this is almost a month late, but whatever.

I honest haven't play much of your company's library, but I have spent some good quality time in Don't Starve Together.

My favorite characters in terms of playstyle and backstory are Willow, Wendy, Wigfrid, and Webber.
I admired the love and attention that went into every little tuft of grass, tree branch, twig, and horribly cheesy pun.
I loved how dark and unsettling the caves were and the intensity of the cave battle theme.
I loved the overarching melancholy tone of the music of each season.
Spring Cleaning is my favorite season theme.

The first worrying signs that things were going to get progressively worse was when many updates started coming and going, and you tried to fix things that weren't broken ultimately breaking them further and inadvertently trivializing or rendering completely redundant what might have once been unique or fun experiences of the game. Even still, in spite of your proverbial spitting on the original foundation of your own game, I held hope that I would be able to come back and still have fun.

But this? No, I don't think there's any recovery of my interest to be had now. The game's comic, yet bizarre, twisted and dark nature displayed by a beautifully natural pen and paper art style has swoon me for the past half a decade or so.  As such it is honestly heart wrenching, and disturbing in the same breath, to hear this news.

I don't think I can, in good conscience, continue to socially or monetarily support a company that more-or-less directly funds and therefore is complicit in the activities of a horrible government that throws Human Rights under the bus hourly.

To me, this move signals that you no longer need financial support from the community, and more importantly, a portion of that money is actively funneled towards malicious intentions.

 

A company always needs financial support to keep the high ground and pay the bills! As long as the products of said company is there, there will be need for support, and the bulk earnings like this will go to studio upgrading, content production, a bit of rise for employees and maybe new games being produced! I don't find any of these malicious.

After supporting Klei for years and loving their games I will never again purchase one, not a cent will go towards them.

CCP has held events at Tencent HQ in Beijing, these are the people sending thousands of people to "re-education" camps and worse. This is who you sold ownership of Klei to.

The Tencent (QQ) penguin for the CCP event.

It's a studio announcement, doesn't matter if it was days or months ago. Your response on the other hand is pointless and contributes absolutely nothing.

i know 

but i gave my response ages ago 

so it doesn't really matter 

in a way,your response doesn't matter either because people are still helping ccp in so many ways 

and not supporting one company won't change a single thing 

ccp will still continue with their genocide and unless someone with a lot of power puts a stop to them then we are useless because not buying klei's products won't change anything because other people will buy them instead of you  

so in conclusion, life sucks, theres so many people in the world to the point where your actions don't make any change at all to the world 

you can stop supporting klei but really im just saying 

were there any askers?

This is a terrible mindset to have

oh yeah i know 

and im not trying to make other people think the same way

im just saying that not supporting klei will not stop tencent because many other people do support klei and do other stuff like buying stuff from china so im just saying that your,my and their actions won't really do anything against tencent 

you wanna stop supporting klei? go right ahead but it doesn't stop tencent and if im not buying anything,why care?

dunno 

all i know is that i like this one video game where a man gets abducted into a foreign world where he has to survive
