Paranautical Activity was first delisted on Steam on October 20th, 2014 after being released earlier that same day. Looking at the game’s history on SteamDB it was added and removed several times until a final removal was logged on October 29th. The initial delisting and the spat of removals came after developer Mike Maulbeck tweeted a death threat at Valve’s Gabe Newell over a delay in the game’s transition from Early Access to full release. Maulbeck later deleted and retracted the statement, ultimately selling the Paranautical Activity property to Digerati who later returned it to Steam as the ‘Deluxe Atonement Edition’ in February of 2015. Digerati is also listed as the developer and publisher of the console versions which were released simply as Paranautical Activity.
