Fraud and exploits are a real concern in the Steam online marketplace, with Valve cracking down on “fake games” earlier this year. But when algorithms are apparently involved, some games may have found themselves unintentionally in the crossfire. One such is Wandersong, a musical adventure game by Greg Lobanov, which was recently struck by restrictions on Steam.

The official Wandersong Twitter account pointed this out, as restrictions to the game’s trading cards and achievements, usual features that Steam games have, were rolled out. “Steam is still learning about this game,” a notification eerily reads.

Fitting with the wholesome nature of the game was the response, with the Twitter account encouraging fans to view this as a mistake rather than a big company attempting to stomp down on independent games. Take it as a testament that Wandersong is so good that its many positive reviews were alarming!

Per another tweet, the problem is due to be fixed quite soon—in fact, this problem occurred with several other titles, meaning that this isn’t quite an isolated incident and a potential problem with Valve’s current methodology.

I can tell you for a fact that Wandersong is a real game—look no further to my own review and its spot on my personal top ten list. In fact, Wandersong has a presence in the Independent Games Festival awards ceremony, with several honorable mentions and a full nomination for Excellence in Narrative.

If you’d rather get Wandersong for the Switch rather than the apparently mistake-prone Steam, the game is on sale on the Nintendo eShop for 20% off until January 10. Lobanov is currently working on a follow-up project currently titled Drawdog.
