“Regarding the recent de-listing of Myth of Empires on Steam, as well as subsequent developments:
Steam received allegations of copyright infringement related to Myth of Empires a few days ago and temporarily removed Myth of Empires from its store in accordance with the DMCA and to indemnify itself.
Our development team solemnly declares: Angela Game fully owns all rights and property associated with Myth of Empires and will actively respond to any doubts or allegations about this. We are in active contact with Steam and are doing our best to restore the game to their store. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused to the players.
