Dude, if anything, you should make it more like the actual event, and drop the name geronimo, as that was contoversial to native americans.

In Soviet Russia, whenever anyone mentions Twilight, they are brutally PWNED by Simon Belmont... wait, that happens everywhere.

No. Do NOT change the name. Osama blows up buildings, killing hundreds of people and causing forever pain, and you're expected to change the name for Native Americans who like causing stupid conflicts? Don't do it.

@lurtz/doodle: Yeah, the name was one of those controversial things we tried to walk the line on. Tbh, I knew about the geronimo implications but we figured "it is what it is", that's what the operation was called, we're just remaking it - in a more light-hearted fashion.

@crex: Not entirely accidental, we were doing concept work on the game around the time GB came out. Put the project on a backburner and then recently revived it, considering the timing was right.

@ultimo: Ooo boy, the stories I could share

We've got two more projects in the works that we're very excited about. We've learnt from our mistakes from previous projects (Whacksy Taxi, I'm looking at you) about not making enough of an effort on building a community for our games. We'll be really regularly in touch from here on end.

The game is 'In Review' now, if (here's hoping Apple doesn't think it's too controversial) gets approved, we'll share promos for those interested in reviewing the game.

Ooh and we should be sharing the video today!
