Sorry, I didn't mean to say anything wrong. And yes, I have also made a soccer game. I don't think anything I make/made would ever match anything PikPok makes. It was just something that came across in that pod-cast episode and something that a co-host( mike mead ) touched on. Sorry again if I implied anything improper.
I do feel though that you get what you pay for. That if you have money then there are ways you can pay for various product placement, whether it be in traditional or non-traditional ways. Incidentally, are there laws( maybe code of ethics ) that govern declaration of vested interest in the traditional advertisement industry? I think YouTube video game commentators are such a new thing that maybe there are no code of ethics that govern them. Maybe nothing does go on behind the scenes, maybe something does but how can it be harmful to question if it is a level playing field?
Notice also that my focus is not on the Flappy Bird creator but on the new forms of game media.
