Epic Games Store Release Crashes Without Files Called 'Steam'

Axiom Verge has been free on Epic’s new game store this week, only with a surprise catch: the game crashed early on because the developer removed a bunch of files called “Steam” when bringing the game over from Valve’s shopfront.

As PC Gamer report, the issue arose when entering the game’s third area, which contains a bunch of steam pipes that were missing their sound files. Axiom Verge’s creator Tom Happ explains:

The game has since been updated, with the files restored and everything working just fine.

Ironically, the issue had to be crowdsourced on the Steam forums, since Epic’s own store doesn’t have a community section.

    Now I am trying to think of all the games with steam vents and pipe valves...

      Or think of how games would change if your removed all references to Epic... all the purple pretties die.

    Hahaha, brilliant!

      I'd love to see valve delete all posts relating to the epic version of the game from their forums. They'd be well within their rights to do so.

    That last sentence really made me smile.

    This is what happens when you follow Microsoft's example of competition by undercutting and holding things hostage with timed exclusivity deals, instead of actually offering a viable alternative to what you're competing with.

    Enough said
