Russian Game Developer Threatens YouTuber

YouTuber SidAlpha has found himself on the bad side of a particular Russian visual novel developer and has received an emotionally-loaded threat invoking the events of 9/11.

After uncovering a clear-cut case of review manipulation on Steam, dirty developer-exposing YouTuber SidAlpha was reportedly threatened by one of the developers of Sunhand Games responsible for the unethical behavior.

When Valve finally grew wise of the machinations behind Lovely Island’s positive review scores they swiftly brought down the banhammer on it and completely removed it from the Steam Store.

While SidAlpha probably doesn’t have to fear for his life just yet, it is still quite surprising the lengths some developers will go to in order to sell their products on Steam, and what they’ll do when they don’t get their way.
