Steve Fawkner, CEO of Australian developer Infinite Interactive, has revealed that the developer has received death threats due to a bug found in the PSP's Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords.
Fawkner, who founded the company in 1989, made the startling claims at Capcom's Las Vegas Captivate 08 show.
"One death threat in 25 years of game development. Puzzle Quest comes out and I had six death threats and one bomb threat," Fawkner quipped while unveiling the company's newest game, Neopets Puzzle Adventure.
Most of the threats were regarding the bug in Puzzle Quest which saw CPU controlled player assistant no longer have any effect. Speaking to Eurogamer, Fawkner elaborated on the threats.
"They were all emails, and I think at least two of them were possibly serious! They actually left their email addresses on them, so we know who they came from... We had a PSP bug and someone said, 'We're going to send you a bomb and blow the studio up!' But, er, we can track that email."
However, Fawkner has said he won't be intimidated, laughing off the possible life-threatening situation the little PSP puzzler has created when asked if he had reported it to the police.
"No. Most of them were people who were going to kill us who lived in the States, and we're in Australia, so unless they were actually serious enough to hop a plane flight over to Australia and gun me down."
Still, we advise you folk who live near the company's Port Melbourne studio to keep an eye out for any frustrated PSP owners and be ready to flee.
