Told ya.....

SEE?
When this project was first announced I actually wrote several angry responses letting the owners of this site know that they were being used, manipulated, and exploited for a game that was destined to only be a PC and/or OSX game.

I got chastised by one of the mods on this site for implying this.

Well?

The proof is in not in the pudding, but in the actual eating.....
iOS fans are still doing neither at this point. TA got punked for free advertisement for a PC game on an iOS site.

And, that is all.

The developers of Grimrock should be ashamed of themselves. You will never be fully successful without integrity.

Nope. This forum is for covering announced and anticipated iOS games. If some of them never come out, so what? It's still good to have a place to discuss them.

Currently, Undercroft is really the only thing that comes close to it.

Well, there's The Quest as well, but it's not party based, so I'm not sure if that's a deal breaker for you. It IS a really awesome game though.

Aside from that, the only other one that I've been anticipating is called Shadow Keeper, but it isn't supposed to come out until next year. Here's the thread:

If it's a marketing trick, it's a crappy one. Anticipation of an iOS version has kept me from considering this game on any other platform.

Can the mods/ forum admin purge this thread. No need to keep this game relevant!

Why? We don't even delete old discussion threads for games that are canceled. Much less games that may or may not come out.

Isn't it useful to have the thread so that if people try to look up this game and if and when it's coming out on iOS they have some information?

If it's never coming out, ever, why keep it in the "upcoming IPad Games" section. This forum is dedicated to WIP games. Move it to general discussion or another area where cancelled/what if projects can be discussed. No point keeping it relevant here. IMO of course.

Do you have any evidence that it's never coming out? That would be a useful contribution to the thread.

The "Upcoming iPad Games" forum has hundreds (at least) of threads about games that never came out and never will. It also has an enormous number of threads about games that have been released and are therefore no longer "upcoming". These old threads, generally inactive, don't seem to do any harm, and are useful to people who search for them.
