Vimeo to indie game devs: your art is beneath us unless you pay $200
Vimeo's snobbish policy against footage of video games has long upset indie developers. Recently, however, it began pitching a $200 account upsell directly with ban notifications
, and the dam of rage has broken. Brandon Boyer sums it up for Kotaku
: "it's a deliberate and prejudicial exclusion of an entire mode of creative and artistic expression
that apparently doesn't fit their very, very outmoded approach to culture."
