As Epic Games and their Epic Games Store (EGS) collects exclusives away from PC competitors Steam and Good Old Games (GOG), we've seen a cottage industry of video game developers commenting on why they've taken that Fortnite cash.

And now, with Unfold Games and DARQ, we get a piece on why they didn't take the loot box offered by Epic.

What did Unfold Games have to say about their reasoning?

Why might it have been shrewd to publish their comments regardless of reasoning?

What mistakes did they make?

And why should you never publish the emails?
