    they probably realized it was a stupid idea and ditched it. I wont ever buy anything from them, especially because they review their own games with 5 stars.

    They probaly figured out that it was a stupid game/idea and gave up on their failure of a project.

    There was a game called GameLab that contains 3-games-in-1.

    They promised to release more games each month or something and would increase the price as they did. So they told people to buy now if they want to get in on it early.

    Then they had a name fiasco that forced them to pick a new name and disappeared soon after.

    Last I heard they said they couldn't do anything in February, but would have updates out in March (or something along those lines).



    Here's one of their original posts from back in December:



    The official thread is here.

    Funnily enough they are one of the only developers I've seen give their actual number out, so they had a good amount of credibility in my eyes because of that.

    You know, now would be a good time for their "customers" to give them a few dozen phone calls.

    Eh, I bought it. I like it for Lines, that's a cool puzzle game. Thumb Wars is just ok. I'm going to suggest they add a way to go to the games menu from the Thumb Wars variations list.

    I'm happy with having paid a buck just for Lines. And if they ever update it with more games, awesome!

    And who knows I might like another one of the five games it comes with now.

    I'm a little wary of this... but when they do update with new games, does it just add more games, or replace the existing ones?
