Only Up! Back on Steam After Being Mysteriously Removed

Only Up! is currently experiencing remarkable success as one of the top-selling games on Steam, thanks to its immense popularity among streamers who have been dedicating a significant amount of airtime to the game on platforms such as YouTube, Twitch, and Kick. Although the game has been available since the end of May, it only recently gained traction and quickly became a sensation. However, this rapid rise was abruptly interrupted a few hours ago when the game mysteriously disappeared from the Steam store, leading to rumors suggesting that it was removed due to alleged asset theft. These claims, however, seem to lack substantial evidence as the game reappeared on Steam after being absent for a brief period.

The cause for the temporary removal of Only Up! from Steam has yet to be officially confirmed. However, SCKRgames, the independent developer and publisher of the game, acknowledged the issue in a tweet three hours ago, stating that the game would soon be reissued on Steam. This is the extent of their statement regarding the matter.

We will continue to provide updates as the situation progresses. If there are concerns regarding stolen assets, it is possible that the game may be taken down again. However, the fact that it was initially removed and subsequently restored implies that this may not be the underlying problem.

"You assume the role of a young Jackie, a teenager living in the impoverished ghetto, yearning to escape poverty and embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery," describes an official game description. "The world is engulfed in chaos, although it has never been ordinary. Perhaps now is the opportunity you've been waiting for. Crisis demands action and decisive choices... yet it can be intimidating, as each step may lead to setbacks. Choosing the right path is often challenging, but fear not, for mistakes pave the way to growth. Jackie will come to understand that taking a leap and breaking free from the ground is the first step towards a new horizon, even with an uncertain future ahead... A true samurai has no destination, only a path. Stoicism, patience, and cunning are your allies on the journey to greatness. But what lies at the summit, one can never truly anticipate... Are you ready? Only Up!"

An official description of the game elaborates: "Only Up! draws inspiration from the timeless fairytale 'Jack and the Beanstalk' and evokes elements of a platforming adventure. Embark on a mythological journey akin to Jack's, striving for more than mere ascent to the pinnacle. Notable features include the power to manipulate time, allowing you to slow it down and adjust your character's speed, ensuring composure during crucial leaps and bounds. Additionally, the game is replete with a multitude of hidden surprises and diverse allusions, offering countless Easter eggs to discover."
