Has a brilliant future

A developer who threatened the life of Valve Software honcho Gabe Newell via an angry Twitter rant Monday has left the company he co-founded, and has hinted he might leave the video game industry as a whole.


In a fit of rage, Mike Maulbeck, co-creator of the game Paranautical Activity, made the threat Monday, resulting in his game being yanked from PC game distribution service Steam, owned and operated by Valve.


Maulbeck was upset that Steam listed his just-released game as still being in Early Access, rather than final. That classification, he feared, would "cripple sales."


Instead of showing patience and restraint, he took to Twitter and called the company incompetent. And that anger and frustration continued to feed on itself, culminating in Maulbeck claiming he was “going to kill Gabe Newell. He is going to die.” (Maulbeck has since deleted that tweet, though it’s been preserved by Player Attack).
