In a case of common sense going out the Window, Mike Maulbeck developer of the game Paranautical Activity that was only just released in full on Steam has been a bit of an idiot. I only sent word to GamingOnLinux last night about the game being released, and now I'm sending word about this.
He may have removed the tweet, but the internet saw it, screenshot it, and sent it to Valve who quickly cancelled relations with the developer and removed his game for sale. Probably not the best idea with his screen-name mentioning murder either.
There have been plenty more tweets about this, but this confirmed PA is gone:
Welp. PA no longer on steam. I'm done making videogames now. It sucked while it lasted.— Mike Murderbeck (@SpooderW) October 20, 2014
Personally I wasn't a big fan anyway, since the developer decided to call it quits and cut off the big feature list it was supposed to have. To then idiotic (let's call it what it is) outbursts like this is not what we need.
Threats, even ones people don't mean just shouldn't be made. What ever happened to common sense? Don't bite the hand that feeds you.
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME STEAM? WE JUST RELEASED OUT OF EARLY ACCESS AND THIS IS OUR FRONT PAGE BANNER? pic.twitter.com/Zfhj4VA8UX— Mike Murderbeck (@SpooderW) October 20, 2014
All of this because Paranautical Activity's carousel banner section on Steam said "Now in Early Access" instead of "Now released". Valve are a company, made up of humans. Humans make mistakes, so to then go on a twitter rampage and say you're going to kill Gabe...*sigh*.
Source Article, also thanks to the comments on my other article pointing the situation out. What a shame.
For anyone still interested, it's on Desura & from the developers directly.
