Hey there! Let's say your game once done became very popular and was purchased/viewed 1 milion times or so; and then, you get death threathts as a game developer, what would you do besided contacting authority/police; is there anything else you would think of/what would you think of it? I say this because I received a death threath just for playing a game (imagine...that sad; wanting to kill someone over a video game; ok we played a competitive game and he was losing and saying I am cheap in my tactics..so he must kill me (really; some people like to insult others/get triggered in the heat of the moment and then say : ''I'll kill you with my hands if I see you here'')), what is sarcastic/a joke/not serious...and what is (a real threat)? but people today are triggered with not much and can sometimes say stuff (that they would never say in real person) - but online/via anonymity of online 'behind keyboard/screen'; they would never do it -really 'mean it'..but...some Might be Crazy enough to Really mean it...in your country what are the laws/what would you do...in USA you can have guns (in my country you can'T...you need special permit from police director to carry a concealed firearm weapon, only if you show him that you truly feel life in danger from the threat; then you are issued the permit because they can'T protect you 100%/police is not there 'every second everywhere' (unless you have a bodyguard 24/7 at your door step..and even there. it may not protect you, we saw in the news people that perished and Still there was a bodyguard around..made almost no difference). Even some were like 'travel hitmen' that would go a quick trip to another country..do the deed...and escape back to their country...incognito. That freaks me out, someone crazy enough to Travel to the place of where the person exists...and then does it..and then 'flys away' 'back home'...as if nothing happened.. You make the best game...and then you get really disgruntled users who want to kill you because of a bug or some other problem with your game or -you, they don't like you/don't like your style/what you say etc....I read that you just do not 'engage' in them...and ignore them; and report them to the authorities of your country...but, is that all?...if your game sells 1 milion time, and supposedly the number of threats received by the general devs is 0.001% (so that 99,99% of people will never utter threaths online..there is still roughly a 0.001% that will; as such, if your game sells immensly (like 1 million copies) that means 1000 death threats (0.001% out of 1 million), these will come from anywhere in the world (and possibly, even your own country), if only takes 1 Real threat out of these 1000 to be really serious/taken seriously as the person may ACtually/Really Act on it....now if they live half-way across the world it'S impossible unless they come to you/hunt you/and they have to know your name/adress etc...but in today's world...game devs 'plaster' their identity online..which is scary...like any devs 'gets known/know everything about them/whole bio/0 privacy/confidenciality...' so not much hidden anymore about them. You can 'search up' someone and could almost know 'where you live' in 3 seconds...you're 'uncovered/naked' Especially if you are solo dev that lives alone and will not be a 'Company'...but work 'sole proprietorship' (use your name rather than a company name, your name is known/plastered everywhere online), guns are not the answer, but sometimes they are...(plus a kevlarvest) if they have a weapon, and you don't, you have problem; do you go 'in hiding'..like certain developers had to do...after 'Gamer Gate' an event where women developers were sent death threats over their games/being misandrist and them mysoginist/transphobic, some popular dev women went in hiding/left their apartment after contacting the authorities about them; they took them seriously because there were 1000s of people sending them...that is an aspect of game developing that I neer thought we'd reached today..but gamers have become radicalized and internet too; so you can spout a threat and nothing happens; but some people are crazy enough to really mean it...when we are just talking about video games. There are just too many crazies out there. (And someone might be offended by anything you do or say or just for the fact 'of exisiting' as dev...they don't want you existing..hence the threat). I read that what you can do is 'call the cops on someone to make a visit to them' who makes a threat online...but is this possible if they live in another country...what would you do if someone threathened you/your life, for XYZ reason once you become more popular dev (and what are the options in your country)? Sorry for this heavy subject for we have to face it talk it it's important..there is little talk of it as wouldbe one day devs (and this applies to not just devs Anyone, dev/gamer or not). The answer: ''just phone 911, solved'' is repeated but what else...if anything else. Just a 2 cents. Thank you anyone for valuable input.
