Spam marketing, no ethics, no respect to anyone

Black Shell Media is easily the worst "game marketing company" that I know of, and by a huge margin.

Their actions can be characterized as attempting to maximize their own benefit from a deal at zero expense, and no matter how destructive to you.

They openly admit to abusing spam and violating law:

They will attempt to hide critique and are happy to lie you in the face:

The "marketing" they offer is emailing YouTubers (you can find lists and do this by yourself), automatically posting to social media (via Buffer[.com] - you can do that too), and hosting endless giveaways, growing *their* following and providing an endless stream of your game' keys to the gray key market.

It may be hard to find a more reliable way to destroy your game' sales and your reputation than dealing with these folks.

Spam Marketing

You can spam your game yourself, you don't have to hire these guys to do it for you. They will ruin your game's reputation as much as they have their own.

What is the issue?
