Only Up! was originally removed from Steam on June 30th, 2023 due to copyright claims. The game made it back to Steam briefly, but on September 6th, 2023, developer SCKR Games announced the impending removal of the game in a posting. SCKR Games also changed the name in the Steam entry to “not available” and the developer name to “Indiesolodev.” Here’s a look at the Steam entry from the Wayback Machine to see how it was. SCKR Games penned the following:
I’m a solo developer and this game is my first experience in Gamedev, a game I did for creativity, to test myself, and where I made a lot of mistakes. The game has kept me under a lot of stress all these months. Now I want to put the game behind me. And yes. the game won’t be available in the steam store soon, that’s what I decided myself. What I need now is peace of mind and healing. I plan to take a pause, and continue my education in game design and further with new experience and knowledge to direct my energies to my next game with the working title “Kith” – it will be a new experience and a new concept with realism, a completely different genre and setting, and the emphasis is on cinematography. This time I hope the project will be created by a small team. This is a challenging project on which I want to significantly improve my skills in game design.
Thank you for your understanding.Only Up! Steam news – September 6th, 2023
With all that, all we can do here at Delisted Games is create a game entry for it. Thanks, Shawn, for the heads up on that one.
