Disney yanks Tiny Death Star from app stores without telling devs
The game was "a significant source of revenue for us, so it stings that much more," says Marsh. Tiny Death Star was available for only 11 months before being yanked, Pocket Gamer reports.
"We had no prior knowledge that the game would be removed and no longer even have a contact at Disney after the recent layoffs. Suffice to say if you're a developer looking to partner with Disney this might not be the partnership you're looking for," Marsh told Game Informer.
Current players will retain the ability to play and re-download the title, which was a licensed evolution of the studio's popular Tiny Tower -- which was downloaded millions of times on iOS alone, and was Apple's 2011 iPhone game of the year.
