Hey all!

Smuggle Truck developers here. First off, thanks for the amazing response to the game. We're very excited that after months of hard work, the game is finally available to all our fans.

Today is our official launch day and we've already seen coverage from big outlets like Joystiq, Kotaku, etc, and plan to see more pop up throughout the week. Regardless of the enormous amount of e-mails we're starting to get, we'd like to keep you guys in the loop and give you some details.

We were denied entry to the App Store with our submission of Smuggle Truck. The rejection was based on content issues. The exact details of the rejection and our specific communications with Apple are NDA'ed so unfortunately we can't speak to that. Snuggle Truck is our way to bring the gameplay that people enjoyed with Smuggle Truck to the players on the App Store. You can see in our trailer (embedded just below), players absolutely LOVE the game, the physics, the controls, the award system, and the overall feel. The change to Snuggle Truck is purely graphical and the gameplay remains the same. In fact, the only difference in Snuggle Truck is you're bringing animals from the wilderness to the comfort of a zoo, where they'll be provided plenty of food, water and free state-of-the-art health care.

That being said, Smuggle Truck is available in its un-edited form on PC and Mac and is being sold through our website, http://smuggletruck.com for those who want to experience the original.

There is so much hype behind this game that I am actually considering to buy the pc/mac version, where I can change from ugly and pesky animals to cute and fluffy mexicans.

I was really looking forward to this game. Kind of disappointed that it changed names. Maybe I just wanted to buy it with the controversy surrounding it. But in the end, I hate to see the original idea from a developer get scratched so they can be more politically correct.

It does, it kicks in after the tutorial. But after you start the game up every time it takes a while for Game Center to appear.
