Re-Logic’s Terraria released in 2011 has a large fan base and cult following. That said, the game slated to hit Google Stadia will no longer be a possibility, as a strange turn of events has turned into a nasty situation. Re-Logic co-founder Andrew Spinks is furious at Google after his YouTube account was banned from the platform for an alleged TOS violation that was deemed accidental. Not only that, Spinks lost his entire set of Google accounts: Gmail, Google apps, and purchases made over a decade from the Google Play Store.
The Google account of the developer of the famous game Terraria has been inactive for more than three weeks and the developer has yet to receive any explanation from Google. YouTube did not resolve the matter in a logical way as after contacting the platform, the solutions were ambiguous and in no way related to the situation.
In a tweet Spinks said, “My phone has lost access to thousands of dollars of apps on @GooglePlay. I had just bought LOTR 4K and can’t finish it. My @googledrive data is completely gone. “That’s a serious headache for the developer who still can’t figure out what he did wrong on YouTube as he hasn’t posted anything for months.
The result, Spinks was furious with the situation and has now officially canceled the Stadia version of Terraria. That’s a huge blow to the cloud gaming platform, as the game has a huge following, even more than total Stadia users to be true.
The tweet read: “Consider it burned. #Terraria for @GoogleStadia is canceled. My company will no longer support any of its platforms in the future. I will not be involved with a corporation that values its customers and partners so low. Doing business with you is a responsibility. “
On the other side of the coin, it won’t be a major issue for Terraria fans who have a lot of options when it comes to playing the game. It’s on PC, Linux, macOS, iOS, PS4, Xbox, and even the Play Store for $ 5. So the loss is only for Stadia in the big picture.
Whether Google will revive the Spinks account and release an official version of the reason for the ban is anyone’s guess. Since this is turning into a huge outrage, Google will certainly give an explanation.
We hope the developer gets his account back, as his blood and sweat over the years has been invested in relying on Google’s trusted services. If Google has a logical explanation for the ban, then it would be just for the developer as well, but at least they have to.
