Skyrim Together: "Assbag"
Posted: Monday April 29th, 2019 by Woody

When you're a developer making mods for a game like Skyrim, it's probably best to understand the value of "community" to your project. "Assbag" does not.

Skyrim Together is a mod geared toward adding online multiplayer to Bethesda's RPG mega-hit: Skyrim. And Assbag, the mod's chief creator and lead programming, doesn't seem to think he or his company owe anything to the community. A Patreon account associated with the mod currently brings in just over $18,000/month. What must be frustrating for Assbag though is that the Patreon account used to bring in double that. The longer Skyrim Together goes without a launch date and the more Assbag runs his mouth, the lower that monthly haul dwindles.

It doesn't pay to be an Assbag folks.

Update: This comic and it's associated writeup have been updated at the request of Assbag, citing the General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR).

Note: It has always been GU's policy that individuals and game companies alike could request that a comic involving them, their products, or services be removed/edited, no legal pseudo-threats needed, for any reason. We call it the Coward Clause.

And it still doesn't pay to be an Assbag. - 2/9/2022
