This is the same guy that ripped of Marcelo's game recently.
ROKU, wake up, ban Tech VI, sue him, or something!
STOP RELEASING ANY GAMES FROM HIM.

So Tech Vi may have actually paid money for marcelo.cabral's stolen games. The purchaser did not verify the source. I wonder who the actual developer was who ripped of the code and sold it? I am curious what was paid? Not like games on roku are that lucrative... well at least not since roku pulled advertising support. Still look for additional advertising fill.

He should have definitely removed the games from his channel store listings upon learning that they are based on stolen code. I think that there was another developer in play that took your code and sold it to TECH VI. I use the term developer loosely since no actual development was done just changing art assets. It is odd that the Original "Dino Doger" is still on the channel store. At least the games of yours are no longer installable from the Roku channel store. Looking forward to the day when you publish your own games, if that is in your future plans.
