[Gamespot] Indie First-Person Shooter Removed from Steam After Developer Threatens Gabe Newell - Page 16

post #151 of 162
Hopefully he stays out of the game industry instead of being like Phil Fish popping in and out and each time having these stupid kinds of break downs.

Well at first it seemed like a dumb Idea, then I realized this was the only way I would have ever heard of this game.

Now I see he is just a douche, so I will ignore his games on principal.

Sad, sad, sad little man.

indies can't compete in the same space with the marketing dollars of the big companies. haven't you noticed that indie game devs have created or otherwise stirred up controversy and nonsense with the result (intentional or unintentional) of promoting a title that 99% of the relavant fanbase would otherwise not even be aware of? though people's reactions seem to vary depending on certain criteria.

Knowing nothing about the situation or the persons involved it looks to me like:
This first tweet was obviously a bad joke based on his Twitter name. The second tweet was genuinely ironic/funny. Just my 2 cents.

He made a whole big long string of angry, insulting, profanity-filled posts culminating in that "kill Gaben" one. If it was just the one or two posts, I'd agree, it's just a joke, but he was REALLY mad for an extended period of time, and then posted the threat.

Dang, it *could* have been pretty funny if he hadn't done the rest... how unfortunate.

Indeed.

Instead, he let his emotions go wildly unchecked, and the entire development team had to pay the price.

Another, while less extreme, example is the guy who did Fez.

A lot of controversy over that title!
