Developer Telltale caught fiddling Metacritic scores

At least two developers employed at Californian studio Telltale Games wrote glowing reviews for their new game under the guise of impartial consumers.

A user interface artist at Telltale, as well as a cinematic artist, both gave their game a perfect user score on reviews aggregator Metacritic.

One described the game as a mix between Heavy Rain & LA Noire”, and appears to have made the same comment two days later in a separate review under a different name.

Five perfect-score user reviews were published within two days of the game’s release. At the same time, there had been only a single authorised professional review published on the site.

Develop has a lot more detail on the whole sorry saga.
