Their claim is that they asked the team to make the video "if they can" and that thus they didn't require the developers to make the video. If making the video was necessary, then their rebuttal is definitely a lie.Except for the fact that (taking Dangen at their word) the video wasn't requested by them, it was requested by Kinda Funny at the last minute:
When preparing for Kinda Funny Games Showcase for Fight Knight, there was a last minute request from Kinda Funny that asked that we film and send in videos of the developer and ourselves to be featured in an opening montage for the event.
If Dangen is telling the truth here, what are they supposed to do in this situation? What did they exactly do wrong?
And, as another post already pointed out, power dynamics are at play here. Of course the developers were going to make the video if they asked. It's pretty clear from the rest of the messages that Dangen fully expected them to make the video.
What they could've done is make it way more clear that the developers don't need to make the video, and if they couldn't they could've told Kinda Funny that it's too short of a time frame for them to make it.
