    I just can’t stand the ignorance of Nicalis about the entire situation, there should be at least some degree of respect towards the “customers” who “paid money” for a product. (Like the most recent example, Infinity Blade)

    Can’t we unite somehow? Via an article in here, in a petition, or something like that? Let’s make some noise about this.

    I still have the game on my iPad. Even if I didn’t, after 300+ hours, this game owes me nothing.

    It’s holiday season. Patience, young Padawan. Trust me, you’ll more than likely see an article today or tomorrow on the front page.

    572B37CD-7D0D-485B-8DF1-99624D31094C.png Terrible news. I'm glad I can still extract apps from my device for future installs... and I think I also have their most recent (haha) update which I downloaded directy from iTunes.

    Still, this sucks. Maybe they didn't get good sales or something, after all it never got updated for recent devices. I spent the money on it and I only played a few runs (beat mom only once), maybe I'll play it some more now that I know it may be forever gone in future iOS versions (I don't have alternative gaming devices that support that game).

    I just remembered Bioshock. =)

    Guys, did anyone actually notice none of Nicalis' apps are on the App Store? Most definitely a case of them just having to renew their developer license. This is not the first time this has happened, btw.

    That’s my thought also. At least for Boi I didn’t know about their whole portfolio. While I think they’re great for giving us boi on iPhone, the whole forgot to renew licence thing, if it did happen is a touch amateur. Especially through a iTunes gifting season like Christmas. Surely Apple would have sent them a few email reminders as well.

    Not sure if this is posted but this game supports 2 MFI controllers for COOP.

    Connected a Nimbus and a Moga to my iPad and was playing with my daughter.

    (Deathroad to Canada, Crashlands, and Death Squared does this as well).

    I am still looking for more...

    Thank fucking god I have installed on my phone. I’m worried one of these years they just won’t renew it. I really wish someone like playdigious would get ahold of the rights to publish Isaac on iOS. Guarantee they would give it the treatment it deserves.

    Edward could self-publish it... why does it need a publisher anyway? The game is very popular, and Nicalis sucks big time. No updates, no replies to contact form... meh.

    I'm sure it brings in enough $$ that he'll renew the license. Even years after it's release.
    And if he changed it to being published by himself, he'd have to have the published version pulled and re-released under whatever he'd want his publishing name to be. LOTS of pissed of people.

    I hoped that this was bumped for some good news, shame the developer does nothing with it all. On a side note, that version of legend of bum-bo in the app store is fake right?
