There is a saying that no one is above the law, and when the law is broken, you go to court to solve the issue. Though this is true in many cases, not too often is a serious case brought up from the world of video games. This is not the case in regards to the legality of the game Ark: Survival Evolved.
The game has already been on Steam for some time, and is already a big hit. However, Kotaku has found out that the games developer, NomNom Games, is being sued by Trendy Entertainment, a video game developer that used to be the home of Ark’s head designer Jeremy Stieglitz.
The lawsuit claims that Stieglitz breached his contract in numerous ways during the development of Ark. Including “poaching” members of their team to come help him make Ark, having Ark be a “direct competition” to the games they themselves make, and a non-compete clause they had in his contract that forbade him from making games until August 2015.
Trendy is asking for Ark to be pulled from sales as penalty.
