Alec Holowka commits suicide after allegations

From Crappy Games Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Congratulations, Twitter mob, you've now got blood on your hands.

Note: Do not waste your time contacting or harassing Quinn on this, she is not worth it and it's really what she wants, and She CANNOT help herself at all, Ripping on her in the comments section down below is okay as far as I'm concerned. Also, she recently deleted her Twitter account. Update: Zoe Quinn had reactivated her account five days after. Still, please don't waste your time with her.

Alec Holowka was a game developer famous for his work on games like the freeware, I'm O.K. A Murder Simulator made in response to Jack Thompson, was the composer for Kyle Pulver's Depict1 and was one of the designers behind Night In The Woods, as well as the composer.

Background

Zoë Quinn, creator of the game Depression Quest, accused Alec of sexual assault and abuse on Twitter and led to claims all over social media of supposed assault. This led to condemnation and even shortly after without any evidence and just allegations, leading to the creators of Night in the Woods cutting ties with the person.

This pushed Alec over the edge and on August 31, his sister, Eileen Holowka, had announced her brother had taken his own life. She explained that while he was indeed mentally ill, he had been getting treatment and was about to get his life back on track and even claimed he wished the best for Zoë. After the news broke that Holowka had committed suicide, Quinn, along with Scott Benson and Bethany Hockenberry (Alec's former colleagues and coworkers for NITW) had all nuked their Twitter accounts; it is highly likely they did so as a cowardly measure to negate any incoming backlash they could've inevitably received. Zoë Quinn reactivated her account five days later, citing mental health reasons for the account deactivation and insulted her critics calling them "opportunist creeps" as well as refusing to take responsibility for Alec's death.

As for Night in the Woods by other team members, they have continued to remain in hiding and no one has heard a peep out of them since the allegations surfaced.

Aftermath

This ordeal shows just how dangerous making accusations without proof can really be, but more so further proving why SJWs are viewed as complete monsters by gamers and most entertainment pundits the world over. In the weeks following Holowka's suicide, one website, The Millennial, called Quinn's accusations into question by deconstructing her tweets, which resulted in the site getting DDoS'd (Dedicated Denial of Service attack, which is a federal offense in the US, and outlawed in the UK). But despite attempts to silence Zoe's critics, people continue to speak out against her by pointing out that she now has blood on her hands, in addition to bringing the type of person she is to light.

There is no way in Hell I believe Zoe Quinn's accusations. First off the accusation instead of going through the proper channels, ie. the police, she posted in on Twitter where "listen and believe" and guilty until proven innocent reign supreme. Actually that's social media in a nutshell.

Second, she has a long history of dishonesty such as trading sexual favors for positive coverage of her piece of shit "game" while she had a boyfriend and played the victim card when called out on it.

She is a horrible person who played a big role in the death of Western Entertainment and her word is like a tornado siren during a test, loud and not worth listening too.

Fuck her and fuck cancel culture. I'm just glad Projared was able to prove his innocence before this happened to him.

From what I heard, she's broke. And this is after pretty much earning over 80k on Kickstarter from a game she promised but never delivered upon and (I only heard this on One Angry Gamer so I have doubts) getting a new job as a developer for a small studio that even got attention and praise from some big name developers including the guy that created God of War.

Basically, this pretty much made the legal system the thing the Ace Attorney games parodied. Now all that's required is allegations to bring a person to "justice" (sorry, I can't believe that I said that with a straight face, not even airquotes could convey on how many levels this is wrong). Instead of having actual evidence and a suspect to try under the principle of a fair trial that all courts are based on and actually having a basis on which it's possible to build a case under the principle of innocent until proven guilty, anyone can now go to Twitter (or any social media, for all that matters) and say that "person x did horrible things to person y" to the first passerby they see, and people will "listen and believe" as the saying goes and accuse him without evidence or any kind of basis to form a case just because some random guy told them so. It's not justice, it's the exact opposite.

Lessons learned, I think:
