Calm down, it'll come eventually. Cube took a long time and we thought it was rejected but it was approved in the end.

Don't give me empty hopes because I'll be more disappointed if it doesn't come out later, heheh

I don't think so. Only Id can release it, and frankly I doubt they're interested. You can't play it properly on the iPhone--it only really works with keyboard+mouse--and Id probably wouldn't want to make a gimped version.

Actually id said they're going to be releasing a classic title of theirs onto the app store. Didn't say which, though.
