The developer of “Empire Myth” files a lawsuit to put it back on Steam

Earlier this month, after Studio Wildcard and Snail Games (the developer and publisher of Ark: Survival Evolved) filed a DMCA removal request, the sandbox strategy game Myth of Empires was removed from Steam. They claim that the source code of Empire Myth is actually based on the source code of Ark, which was stolen by a former Snail Game employee before leaving to build his own studio.

Angela Games, the developer of Empire Mythology, strongly denied any wrongdoing, and it is foreseeable that this matter will eventually go to court. On December 9, Angela Game filed a lawsuit against Snail Games and Studio Wildcard, again denying any wrongdoing, and demanding an injunction against the DMCA removal request-essentially a court order to cancel the request.
