“Good Luck Games was acquired by FTX, a cryptocurrency company, as a way to ‘help crypto make inroads with gamers,'” read one review on Steam. “I want no part of that and I don’t want crypto ‘making inroads’ in things I’m interested in. Uninstalled.”
Another reviewer wrote that they “can’t support a game bringing NFT scams to Steam,” going as far as saying this “should be illegal across the globe.”
The reviews have nosedived so dramatically since FTX’s purchase of Good Luck Games that only 17% of the last 725 reviews over the previous 30 days have been positive.

The controversy generated by FTX’s purchase of Good Luck Games is just the latest in an ever-growing line of issues facing the gaming industry’s relationship with crypto and blockchain technology.
