Mike Maulbeck, the developer of a game called Paranautical Activity, had his game removed from Steam after threatening to kill Gabe Newell over Twitter, Kotaku reported.
The game was featured as a Halloween-themed game, but it was classified as an early access title even though the game had recently been completed and officially released.
Mike Maulbeck shared his distaste for Steam’s mistake through a series of rapidly escalating Tweets. Finally, after the death threat, Paranautical Activity was removed from Steam.
Maulbeck has since deleted the last Tweet and apologized for his behavior. However, his criticism of Steam has not waned.
It’s usually not a good idea to insult the guy that is basically selling your product, especially for a simple mistake like that.
