Due to her continued involvement in GamerGate, often using exaggerated claims and provocation, [[Milo Yiannopoulos]] wrote an article about her on February 13, 2015. The article detailed her past, establishing a pattern of histrionics and abusive behavior as John Flynt, before gender reassignment surgery to become Brianna Wu, as a means to provide context for her interactions with GamerGate and inan effort to demonstrate that her behavior Should not be taken seriously.{{cite|site=Breitbart|url=http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/02/13/the-wacky-world-of-wu-the-tortured-history-of-gamergates-self-styled-feminist-martyr/|title=The Wacky World of Wu}}

=== Being Forced to Leave Home ===
 
Brianna Wu claimed multiple times that she had been forced to leave her house due to threats of violence received by GamerGate.{{cite|site=Daily Mail|url=http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2789937/female-game-developer-forced-flee-home-twitter-user-publishes-address-threatens-rape-kill-criticised-video-game-group.html|title="'If you have any kids they're dead too': Female game developer forced to flee her home after horrific 8chan rape and murder threats in latest sexism scandal plaguing industry" -Retrieved March 29, 2015|by=Jill Reilly at 16:14, on October 12 2014 <nowiki>|</nowiki> Updated: 08:47, October 15, 2014|aurl=https://archive.fo/p8QTs}}

On Wednesday, May 20<sup>th</sup> 2015 Briana Wu accused Columbus, Ohio prosecuting attorney Ron O’Brien of ignoring death threats made against her in an article on The Mary Sue.{{cite|site=The Mary Sue|url=http://www.themarysue.com/will-prosecutors-act-on-gamergate-death-threat/|title=Gamergate Death Threat Is a Slam Dunk for Prosecutors.

On November 3<sup>rd</sup>, 2016 Brianna Wu published two tweets expressing her opinion about a perceived favoritism of the [[United States Federal Bureau of Investigation]] toward [[Gamer Gate]].

=== Revolution 60 ===

Brianna Wu and her partner Amanda Warner of Giant Spacekat created a Kickstarter campaign to port ''Revolution 60'' from Apple's iOS to Windows and Macintosh. The project was successfully funded by August 30, 2013.<ref name="ks-r60">https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/spacekat/bring-revolution-60-to-pc-and-mac?ref=live</ref> Though they were initially asking for $5,000, the project was funded with $12,728. The estimated delivery for this port was August 2014.<ref name="ks-r60" /> The date passed, and later Wu announced in January of 2015 that the game would be on Steam Greenlight.  She stated the the PC version would have new features allowing the player to express their own emotions in the game.{{cite|site=Intent Media|url=http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/brianna-wu-s-revolution-60-appears-on-steam-greenlight/0144735|title="Brianna Wu's Revolution 60 appears on Steam Greenlight"|by=Ben Parfitt February 4, 2015|aurl=https://archive.fo/wTfnw}} The PC port was released on September 6, 2016.{{cite|site=VentureBeat|url=http://venturebeat.com/2016/08/30/brianna-wus-revolution-60-gets-special-edition-release-on-ios-and-steam/|title= "Brianna Wu's Revolution 60 gets Special Edition release on iOS and Steam"|by=Jeff Grubb August 30, 2016|aurl=https://archive.fo/v9CmT}}
 
  
The green-lighting of ''Revolution 60'' was not without controversy, however. Wu accused people of down-voting the game, even though the "not interested" button has no real impact on the green-lighting process.{{cn}}

''Revolution 60'' is an action RPG game intended to have complex character development and progression, increasing the importance of choices made within the game. Strong and self reliant female characters are meant to raise the stakes in a suspense filled plot.

There is a downloadable content package availible for the game, titled ''Revolution 60: Special Edition.'' It has a retail price of $4.99 as of November, 2016.{{cite|site=Steam Powered|url=http://store.steampowered.com/app/350200/|title=Revolution 60 Steam Page -Retrieved November 10, 2016|by=|aurl=https://archive.fo/s2KBA}}{{cite|site=VentureBeat|url=http://venturebeat.com/2016/08/30/brianna-wus-revolution-60-gets-special-edition-release-on-ios-and-steam/|title= "Brianna Wu's Revolution 60 gets Special Edition release on iOS and Steam"|by=Jeff Grubb August 30, 2016|aurl=https://archive.fo/v9CmT}}

====Reception====
+
On February 13, 2015 Breitbart Writer Milo Yiannopoulos confirmed the previous suspicions that Briana Wu was formerly known as John Flynt.<sup>[[#cite_note-6|[6]]]</sup> The article also shows Wu as an internet troll with an intolerance towards Christians and people from the southern United States.
''Revolution 60'' was given a "Game of the year" award by iMore, a site in which Brianna Wu's game studio had personal relationships with. This relationship, along with the granting of 'Game of the year' status, has been stated by GamerGate to be suspect.<ref>http://theralphretort.com/fix-up-how-did-brianna-wu-subpar-revolution-60-win-action-game-of-the-year-0125015/</ref> The game itself also has many attributes that may be seen by common feminists as 'sexualizing women' such as hour glass figures, short skirts, and pronounced breasts.
 
  
The game appears to have been received poorly on Steam.{{cite|site=Steam Powered|url=http://store.steampowered.com/app/350200/|title=Revolution 60 Steam Page -Retrieved November 10, 2016|by=|aurl=https://archive.fo/s2KBA}}
+
Other evidence for this is Wu previously has worked in Socially Unconscious <sup>[[#cite_note-7|[7]]]</sup>. This can be shown in Socially Unconscious's website, seeing as there is no credit to Brianna Wu on the website <sup>[[#cite_note-8|[8]]]</sup>. John Flynt has also been mentioned in various University of Mississippi forums, being known around campus for his multiple instances of odd behavior and even outright lying <sup>[[#cite_note-9|[9]]]</sup> <sup>[[#cite_note-10|[10]]]</sup> <sup>[[#cite_note-11|[11]]]</sup>. In addition, it is shown that a webpage for the University of Mississippi's GSA (gay-straight alliance) had a plan for Flynt to talk about &quot;the facts of transsexualism&quot;<sup>[[#cite_note-12|[12]]]</sup>.

In Deborah Crocker's experience with the game left her feeling as thought he game was pandering too much to a particular niche audience, to find general appeal.{{cite|site=Armed Gamer|url=https://armedgamer.com/2015/02/revolution-60-is-offensive/|title="Why Revolution 60 is Offensive in Every Way"|aurl=https://archive.fo/xlfvT|by=Deborah Crocker onFebruary 14, 2015}}

''Revolution 62'' is a proposed sequel to ''Revolution 60''. Many of the original characters are expected to return. Wu stated that Giant Spacekat would be approaching [[Felicia Day]] with an offer to play a main character in a voice acting role.{{cite|site=5by5|url=http://5by5.tv/isometric/11|title="Isometric 11: We Were All Terrible in 2010" -Event occurs at 20:50 Retrieved November 10, 2016|by=Brianna Wu; Georgia Dow; Maddy Mayers; Steve Lubitz on July 21, 2014|aurl=https://archive.fo/8Cqut}}{{cite|site=iMore|url=http://www.imore.com/debug-44-brianna-wu-amanda-warner-and-revolution-60|title="Debug 44: Brianna Wu, Amanda Warner, and Revolution 60" -Event occurs at 1:04:00 Retrieved November 10, 2016|by=Rene Ritchie on August 14, 2014|aurl=https://archive.fo/v3T0M}} The Unreal 4 engine is expected to be used, greatly increasing the chances of a port to Android.{{cite|site=iMore|url=http://www.imore.com/debug-44-brianna-wu-amanda-warner-and-revolution-60|title="Debug 44: Brianna Wu, Amanda Warner, and Revolution 60" -Event occurs at 1:05:00 Retrieved November 10, 2016|by=Rene Ritchie on August 14, 2014|aurl=https://archive.fo/v3T0M}} Chase, a new male Chinese-American character, is expected to make an appearance in the new game.{{cite|site=iMore|url=http://www.imore.com/debug-44-brianna-wu-amanda-warner-and-revolution-60|title="Debug 44: Brianna Wu, Amanda Warner, and Revolution 60" -Event occurs at 1:24:00 Retrieved November 10, 2016|by=Rene Ritchie on August 14, 2014|aurl=https://archive.fo/v3T0M}}

Brianna Wu is known as the co-founder of the game development studio Giant Spacekat [1], whose only game to date is Revolution 60. Wu is also a prominent anti-GamerGate voice, often known as "LW3" and "LWu".

GamerGate Involvement[[[index.php?title=Brianna_Wu&action=edit&section=1|edit]]]

Briana Wu's first involvement with Gamergate was to make a sock puppet twitter account, Drake Harper @BROLOLZ, on September 18, 2014.[2] Tweets from this account include "The death scenes in Tomb Raider give me an erection, but that doesn’t make me a misogynist"[3] and "Boobs are pretty, and I want to touch them, BRO."[4]

On October 14, 2014, Brianna Wu got into a debate on Huffington Post Live along with Hotwheels about GamerGate, in which Brianna stated it was about harassment of video games and transsexuals in gaming culture, while Hotwheels debated otherwise [5].

Past as John Flynt[[[index.php?title=Brianna_Wu&action=edit&section=2|edit]]]

John Flynt and Brianna Wu

On February 13, 2015 Breitbart Writer Milo Yiannopoulos confirmed the previous suspicions that Briana Wu was formerly known as John Flynt.[6] The article also shows Wu as an internet troll with an intolerance towards Christians and people from the southern United States.

Other evidence for this is Wu previously has worked in Socially Unconscious [7]. This can be shown in Socially Unconscious's website, seeing as there is no credit to Brianna Wu on the website [8]. John Flynt has also been mentioned in various University of Mississippi forums, being known around campus for his multiple instances of odd behavior and even outright lying [9] [10] [11]. In addition, it is shown that a webpage for the University of Mississippi's GSA (gay-straight alliance) had a plan for Flynt to talk about "the facts of transsexualism"[12].

Being Forced to Leave Home[[[index.php?title=Brianna_Wu&action=edit&section=3|edit]]]

[[index.php?title=File:Wu_never_left.jpg|Wu never left.jpg]]

[[index.php?title=File:Wu_never_left.jpg|15x11px]]

Brianna Wu claimed multiple times that she had been forced to leave her house due to threats of violence received by GamerGate. This was proven false by users of chan boards showing that interviews conducted before she left her house and interviews done while she was in hiding where conducted in her home office.

Harassment[[[index.php?title=Brianna_Wu&action=edit&section=4|edit]]]

In February 2015, Brianna Wu herself posted a thread on the Revolution 60 Greenlight discussion page asking "Is GSX Head of Development and noted Feminist Brianna Wu a terrible person?" in an attempt to receive more harassment. The post was quickly deleted when she was questioned about it. The Greenlight page for Revolution 60 has since been taken down 'in order to prevent more abuse from GamerGate' according to Wu.[13]

PC port and Steam Greenlight of Revolution 60[[[index.php?title=Brianna_Wu&action=edit&section=5|edit]]]

Briana Wu created a Kickstarter to port Revolution 60 from iOS to PC and Mac that was successfully funded on August 30, 2013.[14] Though initially asking for $5,000, the project was funded with $12,728. The estimated delivery for this port was August 2014. As of February 2015, the game has not been ported.

The greenlighting of Revolution 60 on was not without controversy. Wu accused people of downvoting the game, when in reality, the "not interested" button has no real impact on the greenlighting process.

It was given the "Game of the year" award by iMore, a site in which Brianna Wu's game studio had personal a relationships with. This relationship and the granting of 'Game of the year' status has been stated by GamerGate to be suspect.[15] The game itself also has many attributes that may be seen by common feminists as 'sexualizing women' such as hour glass figures, short skirts, and pronounced breasts.

It looks like something Anita would criticize, doesn't it? Hourglass figures, skimpy outfits...
