Controversial video game, Paranautical Activity: Deluxe Atonement Edition, has been given a release date on the Xbox One. The game will come out on April 29, that’s two weeks after the title was released on the Wii-U.
Paranautical Activity: Deluxe Atonement Edition is a first person shooter with a retro-like graphic design. Yes, it is all pixelated but that doesn’t mean the game looks bad. For the type of game, it is, Paranautical Activity: Deluxe Atonement Edition looks wonderful and we can’t wait to play it.
For those who might be wondering, this game is very much similar to Doom or Quake when it comes down to the general gameplay mechanics. The gameplay is fast and smooth, and that has a lot to do with the 60 frames per second gameplay.
The game has over 40 items to collect and around 100 different enemies. Furthermore, there’s a dubstep soundtrack that doesn’t sound half bad if you ask us. In terms of what this edition of the game has, well, the dubstep is one unique addition, along worth developer commentary and a gamer guide.
There’s also an exclusive level known as Frozen and a weapon known as Recoil Rifle.
But hey, what is the reason behind the controversial nature of Paranautical Activity: Deluxe Atonement Edition?
Nothing in the game is controversial, it just all boils down to Mike Maulbeck, the original developer, going off on Twitter about Steam and Valve’s CEO, Gabe Newell. Apparently, the game was released out of Early Access but form some reason, it still had the tag attached.
This didn’t go down well with Maulbeck, so he went off on a steaming rant, and the following words were tweeted.
“ARE YOU F****** KIDDING ME STEAM? WE JUST RELEASED OUT OF EARLY ACCESS AND THIS IS OUR FRONT PAGE BANNER?”
“First they force me to delay the game because I can’t release on weekends, now this. Steam is the most incompetent piece of f****** s***,” and “I am so F****** DONE DEALING WITH F****** INCOMPETENT S***s.”
Then he went completely overboard with the following tweet that caused Valve to remove the game from Steam.
“I am going to kill Gabe Newell. He is going to die.”
