Early Access multiplayer survival game The Stomping Land has been pulled from Steam after a month-long period of silence from its developers and no sign of promised updates.
Priced at $24.99 when it was available, The Stomping Land challenged players to survive in a harsh island wilderness under constant threat of attacks from roaming dinosaurs. After announcing a shift to Unreal Engine 4, The Stomping Land creator SuperCrit issued no further updates or commentary regarding the game's development status, leading more than 3,000 players to petition for refunds.
Steam's Subscriber Agreement notes that Valve is under no obligation to refund its customers for Early Access game purchases, and refund requests from The Stomping Land players have been denied. The Stomping Land earned over $100,000 in Kickstarter pledges following a successful funding campaign last year, and recent backer comments indicate that physical reward orders remain unfulfilled.
