"While I can see people's anger and why this might be a bad idea for the game, I still feel like this topic should be left alone".

Some people also pointed to Valve removing the game HATRED from Steam several years back, only to reverse the decision with Valve CEO Gabe Newell apologizing and saying "it wasn't a good decision" to pull the title.

"Ata is a troll, with a history of customer abuse, publishing copyrighted material, and user review manipulation", Valve added.

Professional video gamer "Siefe" explained the video game's premise and how he couldn't believe the game was on Steam in the first place. According to the developer, adding the school shooter role was a natural progression of development.

Valve discovered the man was the developer behind "Active Shooter" when they began investigating amid controversy surrounding the upcoming game, Lombardi said.

That could refer to malware or viruses, but Valve also has a list of content that developers should not include in their games.

Not everyone seems to share Siefe's concern or sense of outrage over "Active Shooter". Content that is "patently offensive or meant to shock or disgust viewers" and "content that exploits children in any way" are both on the list.
