Ken McCulloch, previously sited as “Lore Keeper, World Builder, Dream Merchant” at Precursor Games, was arrested on Friday for possession, creation and accessing child pornography.  This Too Human director had been under investigation since April, and the authorities seized “a significant number of computer systems and peripheral devices” as evidence.

Following these charges, Percursor Games has distanced itself from McCulloch.  On the forums, the CEO, Paul Caporicci, commented:

Having just learned of these disturbing charges today and based on the serious nature of them, Ken McCulloch is no longer affiliated in any way with Precursor Games.

Rather distressing news for the seemingly cursed Precursor Games.  They can’t Kickstart their game, and now one of their founding members has been arrested on very serious charges.  As horrific and inexcusable these charges may be, please let’s all remember that people are innocent until proven guilty.  

It’s especially hard to know the full story at this point, while everything is still pending – we don’t even know if the images are using real children or animated depictions.  Fans of anime and manga should be aware that some of this stuff is actually banned in different countries – if you plan to travel with a hard drive full of “He is my master” you may want to check before you get arrested.

Let’s just hope they investigate this quickly and thoroughly.
