Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions
. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum
. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

"This comment makes the most sense to me."
I'm not clear on why so many people in this thread are bringing up social skills. Outside of a poorly monitored high school, the kind of things mentioned here are not acceptable social backdrops, they're illegal. Like, if some guy outside of an office setting did this to you, they'd face criminal charges.
Seriously, shit that's illegal in society at large does not magically become "part of the way the game is played" because you're in a closed social setting. Threats of physical violence is not "office politics", and it's not about social skills.
I think talking to a lawyer is probably worth it, but it wouldn't surprise me if the conclusion is that it's hard to prove
negligence on part of the company. It might not be though, so check with a lawyer. (Detailed documentation - times and places - of individual events would probably have helped immensely, but it's a bit too late now I guess).
I also think it's important you remember it's not you, it's them. That kind of behaviour is not acceptable, you're a victim, not someone to blame.
