Night in the Woods developer Alec Holowka dies (Gaming)

A few days ago there was an outpouring of allegations against many folks in the games industry regarding rape and sexual assault. One of those named was Alec Holowka, one of the main developers of Night in the Woods. I really really liked this game, and I read the accounts of his abuse which were pretty horrible so I was very sad.

Following the allegations the publisher cut ties with him.

Then he killed himself.

I feel like I have to personally vet every studio / developer now when I buy a game and it fucking sucks. Why can't people just be decent.
