PUBG Mobile accused of stealing skin ideas from an independent game developer

Although PUBG has passed its golden age, it still maintains a large community of players thanks to constantly releasing updates with lots of new content. One of the most recent updates is an 8×8 map called Taego, which comes with unique gameplay features. Previously, PUBG Mobile also announced a new skin: Hypnospace Diva, but this update does not seem to go well when the developer of the indie game “Hypnospace Outlaw” speaks out accusing PUBG of plagiarizing both the name and the method of its color scheme. .

Jay Tholen, the father of the indie game Hypnospace Outlaw, recently posted an article on Twitter, accusing the PUBG development team and then Tencent (publisher of PUBG Mobile) of plagiarizing the name of his game for the New skin. Just because the name is similar, it cannot be concluded that it is an act of plagiarism, but “Hypnospace” is not a common word for cam. In fact, if you Google this word, most of the results are related to Hypnospace Outlaw. Also, not just the name, the purple, yellow, and blue color scheme of Hypnospace Diva’s appearance clearly has many similarities to Hypnospace Outlaw’s main color.

Jay Tholen’s accusations are currently receiving a lot of support from netizens, some even linking to the Hypnospace Outlaw website in the PUBG Mobile Twitter post, urging people to buy the game and spend money on PUBG.


Tholen said he didn’t want to make a big deal out of this, but he didn’t like that the name of his game was related to the game (PUBG offers loot boxes, which many people believe is a form of gambling, money extortion). of players), as well as not wanting people to misunderstand and mistakenly think that the skin is an official collaboration event.

However, because copyright laws in China are not as strict as those in Western countries, Tencent will most likely outright ignore any related complaints. That is, the Hypnospace Diva skin will still appear in the normal game. Jay Tholen’s complaint probably won’t bring any results, but at least many people know that the Hypnospace Diva skin has no relation to Hypnospace Outlaw.
