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.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let's get on with it!

        Ok ok i’ll delete that comment. How do I delete that? Admin?

          Don’t apologise. If people still want to associate with an organisation that actively covers up rape you have a duty to offend them. :)

          • Daryl Eksteen

            No arguments there Rags. The comment shouldn’t offend people, the fact that child abuse still happens today should offend people.

    okay we can all agree that child pornography is sick, but I see no harm in animated child porn. The real thing harms children, and permanently scars them, but if the perv can sit in his apartment, and watch a cartoon instead of going out and molesting kids, I’d prefer that.

    Well its an offence for a reason. The guy gets off to children. Say that out loud and you realise how wrong that is, even if its animated.
