Shadowgun: Deadzone has been rejected by Apple

For those waiting for Deadzone, bad new. From the mouth of Marek Rabas, we know that the game has been rejected on Apple's side and we won't be getting it today.

Quote:

Anyway SAD NEWS for iOS players.. We have some issues with ios version and APPLE didnt approved it. I dont want to go to details, but we are working with them to solve this issue... I hope it will be solved soon.

Android version will be out Today..

Best

Marek R.


PS: This may be due to a weapon called "Shitstorm". Or some other reason.

Update: this is NOT due to the use of shitstorm.

Hope they can resolve it soon. What's up with USA and censoring words?

But you have to be sensible, theres lots of kids who might get apps from the app store (and parents) who dont want to see words like that.

Can you name one tv show where that word is used say at 6pm or 7pm or lunchtime? Go on, name one show ?

IF my little girl was 7 or 8 and was looking for games on the app store i wouldnt want any swearwords to be shown. Kids pick up stuff like that easily.

Its not a huge deal, i dont care what the gun is and i'm not bothered by swearwords and yeah its crazy as theres games where you shoot people (sorry 'zombies') but i think its a bit stupid of the dev to include that word, obvious it was going to get spotted.

Seriously? Is the game 17+? If so, there's games that have far worse content.

It was not due to profanity, Madfinger made that clear.

If anyone wants an example of vulgarity up the wazoo try 9mm. If anyone wants an example of excessive profanity that is still (mostly) tasteful, try Walking Dead.

If this game got rejected because of that word, then why aren't lots of gameloft games, walking dead, and many other games that use he word banned?

Best games on my ipad: Infinity blade 1 & 2, Dead space, GTA vice city, Dead Trigger, The Walking Dead, Bad Piggies, MC4, Ravensword 2, Super Hexagon and Real racing 3.
Most anticipated games: Infinity blade dungeons, walking dead season 2, Star command and Oceanhorn.

Defred should quit posting in Madfinger games' threads. He's just humiliating himself.
