No, Digital Homicide did not withdraws its lawsuit against Steam users because it felt guilty or thought it was the right thing to do. The embattled game developer is withdrawing its $18 million lawsuit against Steam users because it is too broke to move forward. Ouch.
Digital Homicide, the maker of games including The Slaughtering Grounds, ET: The Extra-Large Testicle, and Not In My Crapper, recently made the astounding decision to sue 100 anonymous Steam users for $18 million over nasty comments they'd made about the studio's work. In response, Valve removed all of the studio's games from Steam, prompting Digital Homicide to threaten legal action against it as well. But last week it requested that the lawsuit be dismissed, because it can no longer afford to pursue it.
